So I'm not the only one who does this!

When you know how to fix your speedometer needle when it jumps past 100... I can do it in less than a minute and a half now..

... when your "to do list" gets 5 things added to it for every one thing you cross off....

ex: I changed the oil but will soon be replacing the oil pan, some of the grease fittings, a few bushings, tie-rod ends, and a cross-member.

ex: I replaced the radiator but will soon be replacing the grille opening reinforcement (header panel), grille, fog lights, adding some tow hooks, and adding a front skid plate.


It's like every time you look at it you see a few things that "need" to be done and a few things you want to do.

When you really enjoy the ride of your ZJ over a Prius!! We have a 2010 Prius in the family and love the 40-50 MPGs, but the ride is horrible, noisy, cramped. I can live with 15-20 MPG in my ZJ.

The list i got for spring is almost a page long..and from the looks and sounds it appears i will be adding a new rear axle to that list. Including a brake overhaul..bring it on

We don't have speedy up here. The good part is that I can go 1000 miles on it.
