When you fixed the hatch that wont open a couple of months ago and today when you had to open it you heard a loud "snap" when you pulled the handle and its stuck once again....

You know you drive a ZJ when you are driving an automobile and realize that it is a Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV manufactured by Chrysler Group LLC between and including the years of 1993 and 1998.

When you hit 400k miles and still have 80% stock parts.

Idk about all the problem y'all are having. I've treated my 5.2 rough, and have had relatively very few repairs. I haven't quite hit 400k lol, but I met another guy that was at 457k miles on the original motor, and I met him in Kansas and we were both driving across the country. I think his may have been the 4.0 though. I don't remember.


------I did just post a question about my differential though. Please take a look if you can better diagnose. It has a sound clip.

When they brought the 5.9 limited to the US from Austria, it was DaimlerChrysler AG.

Now it seems to be a nightly occurance a truck with a louder exhaust i believe to be an 02 to 08 dodge ram with id say the hemi (it has some grunt) drives either past my house slowly like 10 or slower, with lights off and turns aroud and drives slowly by again or will drive by with lights on still slow and turn lights off and turn around and drive slowly back by!

Super sketchy. I'd be backed in the driveway, sitting in it running, lights off, waiting on them to ride by.

I don't know about Wisconsin, but the generally accepted strategy regarding that in Texas is to wait until the next night with gun in hand and when they roll up, let them know they best mind their own, because as soon as their foot is on your property (including the car, in Texas) morality ain't a factor in their mortality. And you sleep light.

It sounds like posturing, it really does, but that is a legitimate way we do things here. I don't care for stand-your-ground laws, but if you're on my own property, looking to hurt me or my things, or take any of it from me, that's another story. Again, I don't know the law in Wi, but maybe give it some thought if applicable.

why I drive a zj? I drive a ZJ because it's a jeep, its off road capable, it has a v8, and its reasonably quick for what it is.

OT: when...a song plays like a chime that remembrances the VIC chime, and I instantly think...I removed you 4 months ago for a chubby, you haunting me?
