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.

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.

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.
