When your mom recommends a mechanic to get something fixed that you just don't have the time to do, and while you're skeptically pulling into his lot, you lay your eyes on a pristine 5.9. You ask him how much and he laughs and goes "never, that's mine." And you immediately have full trust in this man with your zj.

Told the girlfriend about this gas cap holder business on JF. She laughed and said she found hers pretty quickly on her old Zj, then i walked outside to discover one on her Isuzu trooper, which she had no idea about.

And
Why did car makers start putting gas caps on the passenger side? Is that a jap thing because of their RHD (which would make that the drivers side)?

Most Japanese cars and trucks have their gas caps on the right side, because that's the driver side in Japan. The Isuzu Rodeo comes to mind as an exception.

If you're on the road and run out of gas which side do you want to be standing on to fill it up, side with 60mph traffic driving by or other side of the vehicle. Safety my friend, some people don't pay attention to how much gas they have. Its not a jap thing either, lots of gm vehicles do it.

this leaves a secondary issue though... look at when someone with a passenger side gas cap pulls into a gas station with a bunch of people with the cap on the drivers side

someone is gonna be pointed the wrong way

not to mention anyone who doesn't pay attention to their gas gauge is likely to not have a gas can (empty or full) in their car and they end up either waiting for someone to bring them some gas, waiting to be towed to a gas station, or pushing the car to a gas station if one is nearby

my experience (again) today

everytime you go to find parts for something to fix, you start listing all the projects you need/want to do

wallet hates me

and yes my mechanic knows my phone number and zj without a second thought

Well, D35 stands for Dana 35 which is the rear diff that came in 93-95 ZJ's I believe. I could be wrong, check the Jeep Specs under the FAQ's
