"Awww! The parking lots aren't connected!" she remarked as she eyed the grassy slope that separated the two parking lots.
"Normally, no, they aren't. But we're in a Jeep. Just drive up there."
"Really?"
"Yup."
"You're sure?"
"You're not chicken **** are you?"

My ZJ landed in the parking lot of our destination restaurant with a slight bang as the muffler took a hit from the curb at the top of the hill. She was laughing hystarically, ate quickly, and we're no longer exactly "platonic."

Jeeps are sexy.
GTW! Pics, btw...of said room mate.

Yesterday I picked it up from the alignment shop. They were able to bring the caster to 5, and the toe in was set to 0. I'm aware that toe-in should be around 1/8", and that I'm going to prematurely wear my KM2's, but it handles so much better with less toe in. There's no more shimmy to it.

Today I wired up the new to me Kenwood deck, now I have iPod tunes in the ZJ. In the long drawn out process that it was wiring the deck up, I believe I figured out why the expensive Pioneer deck that was in it wasn't working. I could only get sound while AM/FM was in use, no other setting. 12V power out was only going out with the power antenna.

Oh well, anyone need a sweet *** Pioneer deck?

Disco'd the front sway bar for the first time since I've owned my ZJ and went to the closest spot I could find. My wife didn't like the body roll. Didn't bother me as much.

Yuppers. She drove pretty good with them disconnected on the road. Although I won't be leaving them disco'd for all time driving.

I've been driving with none for the last two months. Use mine as a daily driver and usually travel out of town once or twice a week.
