Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

Went to get fuel today, finished up, started the jeep and my winch began to smoke. Once the smoke died, the ***** wouldn't start. Turns out I had a bad negative battery cable connection which was putting a jive on my rig.

Productive day today...I got the rear hatch open (it has not opened since I got it) and adjusted the mechanism so that it now opens freely. It did show me, however, that I need to replace the lift shocks for the hatch. I'll pick those up tomorrow.

I also played around with the power windows. The passenger side switch was missing. I had a replacement, but it was for the wrong car (the person I bought the GC from said it was the right one, but it clearly is not). I respliced the wires (some of them were cut so that they can fit the "new" switch (that I will not be using)) and I ordered some replacement power door/power window switches on ebay.

I also unstuck the passenger rear seatbelt. Some ******* put both parts behind the paneling so that the lap part of the belt came out of the top with the other part. You can now safely sit in the back seat.

Went wheeling Sunday AM. Very early. First road trip, ran it 30 miles to wheeling location and back home. Wheeled for 4 hours, ran out of fuel in a bad place. Threw in 5 gallons and was immediately stuck. Sat on jeep for an hour until my buddy I was wheeling with could manage to get to my location with his 4.4L BMW X5 with brand new 31x10.5 MTs. It's amazing what those things can do stock, an extra 3" of ground clearance and he would out wheel me.

Rain helped wash off the mud.

Late night web searching led me back on craigslist to finally find a decent priced set of tj moabs!! Going to contact the guy tomorrow.. Hopefully can get em next weekend and get them mounted. They look so sweet on a ZJ.

If you calculate shipping to Indiana from you and it's a decent price I'd do it. I honestly don't feel like taking them of at a jy I herd they are a royal pita to get off. Lol
