I took it over to a friend's place to diagnose the dieing issue..never really did get it figured out but it snowed today and I drove my truck and found out my truck actually does awesome in the snow and drifts really good. Didn't have my gopro with me when I was driving the truck but did get a bunch of footage with the Jeep and my buddies suby. I will make the vid later.

I usually only fill up when the light comes on, otherwise id always be at a gas station, but I have to fill in two transactions, cause it stops at 100$ then another 30 or so fits.
I wish I had that cheap of gas, must be nice!

Complaining about gas prices is useless. We have absolutely no control over them. When I bought my ZJ, I bought it with the understanding that after a year, there'd be a very good possibility that I'd spend more on gas than I spent on the Jeep. At an average of about $3.60 for the last 2 years here, getting about 13 mpg on average, and traveling 20,000 miles, I've spent about $5538.46 on gas for the Jeep. That doesn't count my Caprice or 3 the beaters I've used while the Jeep was down, sometimes for a month at a time. Gas is an expense we all have to live with. Now quit your b*tchin'!

No ones exactly complaining, just stating how much it costs them, and it's not exactly something we all have to live with, if your only paying 3.60, and I am paying 6.50 with a stronger dollar.
I put more gas in my jeep than my new truck payment is a month! Not *****ing, just think its interesting.
I don't really care about my gas mileage (sub 10 city) nor how much it costs me, I just wish it had a bigger tank so i wasn't always at the pump.

Bought basic tune up items(just bought the ZJ on the 12th)...plugs, wires, cap, rotor, etc. Gonna install, and change fluids, tomorrow.

Also started pricing 242 cases for swap. Found one from same year, same engine ZJ, with 119k, for $200...decednt deal? Also, although there are the t-case swap threads in case I need to change out input shaft, etc...is it pretty likely it will be direct swap, with the same year, engine, and transmission(or at least so they say...found it online, cant get measurements, etc.)? Hopefully I can just bolt it straight in...not with my luck, but we'll see.

Moggie99...man, I'm jealous...could you do me a favor: mail me some gas, maybe a few thousand gallons? Lol..sure, they might have issues trying to mail a flamable, hazardous liquid...just ask nicely, I'm sure they will let it slide this one time.
