What you can spot random jeep parts on the fly, a few weeks ago I spot a 42re in the back of a delivery van and some power leather seats in another delivery van. The seats were mounted in lol. I was like hey what will it take for u to "loose" that trans lmao.

When the right rear tire deflates at 50 mph, and you don't notice until you stop.

Retreat? Hell, we just got here......

I heard the nail it picked up eject, I'm assuming it held air just long enough for me to stop at the next intersection, where, when I pulled away, I heard that dread soundm whump whump whump..... I had the tire patched, no sidewall damage, it's back on the ZJ, all seems fine. Found the nail embedded in the inner fender.

Retreat? Hell, we just got here......

You don't even know. I was at O'Reilly so much for my Jeep, they HIRED me. True story. I'm an O'Reilly Parts Specialist now because I spent so much time and so many trips going to and from O'Reilly to fix this Jeep.

THAT, my friends, is how you know you drive a ZJ.

That not bad for the balance or anything? I may end up doing this, though i was planning to just have the driveshaft shortened.
