Hey man, Wilmington eh? Right on same here!

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.

Dont like it one bit, everytime i borrow it i remember why I have not sold my ZJ or changed to a wrangler....

The only thing i like about it is the turning radius..... Now dont get me wrong, they are very capable rigs, and they look great when the owners know how to fix them up..I love the way they look, just hate the way they ride.....
My ZJ and my buddy's TJ.
Those look like ND license plates (from looking on my phone anyways) is this true?

You know you drive a ZJ when....

... when you can find an online forum (jeepforum dotcom ) that actually has knowledgeable peeps with generous advice.



Am currently taking an overnight break from doing the timing belt and water pump on my '03 Hyundai 2.7L Sonata. The online forums I've found S***!!

When you purposely don't wash it after offroading because you're proud of all the dirt and mud on it, and all your neighbors give you dirty looks.

I had a very elderly woman exit her truck with her husband on Sunday( wheeled on Saturday) and asked " how fresh is your paint job" to which I replied only a day old. She laughed and said I did a good job.

A friend has already had to rebuild his trans on his 2006 Ram with 80k miles on it. My buddy rebuilt his WJ trans at 20k miles... Just terrible!

Yeah, my whole maternal family has the same problems with all their Dodges over the last 20 years. They should just let Borg Warner design the transmissions, instead of just contracting them for assembly.

For that matter, they should start moving to CVTs instead of 8 and 12-speed autos. There's a point when having more gears is ridiculous.
