Man, I don't feel as bad about injuring myself now after seeing some of your guys' injuries. Mine isn't nearly as bad now as it was last night and this morning. I'd take a picture, but the swelling has really subsided. Picture a pinky with a bruised finger nail. That's essentially what it looks like now. It is still extremely tender to the touch though. Typing this is slightly painful.

Found a giant dodge ram that has been parked since at least Jan of this year.

Trying to go about getting it as an abandon title, going to talk to the neighbors tomorrow.

Unfortunately, there are NO durangos there, and that was the sole purpose of going there, cause i saw one on craigslist. I went there the first time to look for an air hat. Iol have to look at the yard right down the road from me. This one is about 15 minutes away.

Passed by this on the way to get ice cream, had to stop and take some pics on my way back. Probably about 2 feet of lift lol, those are 40 inch toyo's. The pinion angle in the front is atrocious, and the air bags in the front aren't perpendicular either.

That's about par for down here in the Dallas Fort Worth area. It's one of the first things I noticed when I moved here just over a year ago. These people volunteer a 20 mpg drop just to look tough. That's a lot of dough to shell out for social status, but to each their own. I'll wheel with him any day.


Just so I can laugh at his dumb-*** when he points his nose at any mud puddle he can find and that front shaft snaps just thinking about "getting a little mud on the tires". And I would LOVE to see that thing on the rocks!

Don't forget it's 9000lbs, surely no lockers, and now can't pull a gooseneck, you know, the thing it was built for. Lmfao, idiots.

Replaced my throttle cable, bent the jeep pedal so I won't break this one. Wheeled it around home, working well, I'm going to have to wheel this run on Saturday with no front locker, haven't had time to replace the ac compressor, or hit the jy for a used one. I think I'll be able to hang with the rzrs and atvs without it anyway lol.

How hard is it to replace the throttle cable?

On most it's simple, but on bruiser my throttle body is where most zjs heater controls are, right in the sharp opening I cut in the firewall, so it sucked.

Got a radiator for mine yesterday. Haven't out it in yet. 102$ from my moms work.

But today I decided it was time to sharpen my knife. Is it bad that I have spent almost 2 hours sharpening and cleaning and oiling it? Haha

Lubelockers came in the mail today. I thought I'd get them installed, but I woke up too late (2PM) and by the time I got motivated to go out, I ran out of time (and light).

I did, however, do some diagnostics on my battery. I got these results:

Full charge (overnight on a charger): 13.36 V
Charge after 1 start: 12.86 V
Charge 3 hours later: 12.46 V

I disconnected the battery and will test the charge tomorrow. This should tell me if the battery was draining on its own or if something in the GC is draining it, right? If the charge hasn't dropped much now that it's disconnected, something else is draining my battery? If it does drop, the battery is kaput?

Would have taken you half that time to replace your radiator. Ask me how I know. I can swap one out in 45 minutes HOT to new

You sir, have a parasitic drain. Search the ZJ Tech forum for how to find it. It was posted mere weeks ago and it was awesome. Your battery is more than likely fine. Fix what is draining it.
