[QUOTE=rooster51;13297693] Whats the worse that can happen? Your jeeps already broke.
I worked at a place called Philmont out in northeast New Mexico. My girlfriend came to visit me, so I made the three hour drive up to Colorado Springs to pick her up from the airport. Somewhere between Eagle Nest and Angel Fire, at around 11 pm (and hour nine of driving), a black bear wandered onto the highway about 15 or so feet in front of me. I was going about 75, and it didn't stand a chance. It was a strange experience, but my zj stayed on the road, kept my girlfriend and safe, and made it up the mountain to Taos. the wreck with the bear didn't kill the engine; that happened the spring before.
So, you Down there this year again? Do you remember Christine S(Lead Ranger) and her ZJ? Its Mine now!
The only things that I've actually broken on my 3 ZJ's?
I popped a brand new Rock Auto sway bar end link on the white one.
Crushed the tail pipe on the current one.
Pushed the cladding in on the rear door on the green one. It dented the door pretty good, but the cladding covered it.
Those are the only things I've actually broken on my ZJ's. Now, parts that I've replaced? That's a different story...
Yeah i didnt even change the lock from the original to the one from the Junk Yard. I did get the key to the JY one, it was in the ignition. I still need to figure out the lock motor though. I think i just need to hook something up, i can hear the motor move but the lock doesn't move when the motor does. I have to use the key to get in insead of just using the keyless.
The lesson i learned was, Never reverse with the door open.
my story is quite a bit different... the door has saged since i got the jeep, and i never did anything about it. because of that, i slammed it one day and the bolts holding the latching mechanism to the inside of the door pulled through the door.
