ZJ or not, if I have a couple minutes to kill, I always stop and ask if they need any help.

Just last night I saw a car broke down on the side of the road - turned out to be an old buddy from school. He threw a rod. Nothing we could do on the side of the road so I gave him a tow home

Totally agree, I was on the way on the beach, and I pulled into a parking lot to air down and pull into 4lo and saw a TJ with a guy underneath, so I asked "you need some help" and come to find out they were tourists with no tools and his 242TC linkage was stick and couldn't get it into 2wd. So after helping him (explain how to adjust the linkage) he got it and thanked me and I went about my way. It's always nice when they look up and say "thank I really appreciate it" and you explain to them "it's a jeep thing just remember that".

A new alternative to gas!



It's holy water though, so it should replace all fluids, and not leak!

When you find this parked next to you, same year, same motor, same color just stock height and tires.

That's not the same year.. The left is 96-98.. Easily differed by the grille

MrObvious - If you want a 5.9 grille, I've got a slightly cracked (on the bottom, not visible when installed) slate one I'm willing to sell. PM me if you're interested.

On topic, I looked at it sitting sadly in the garage. I should have the heads back tomorrow or Wednesday, so then I can get it back together.

Yeah, I hate being stuck on the side of the road and having everyone just zip by me. And I figure treat others the way you want to be treated

The one thing that bugs me even more though - when you're out with a group, wheeling or something, and you have troubles. And you're under there working on your rig and everybody else is just standing back in a circle watching and talking. They don't even offer to give you a hand even though you're obviously having a hard time. Like really, you don't even need to get your hands dirty if you don't want to. Hold the flashlight or keep track of the bolts as I take them out!
