PICS!! What a long day. xrcodeman and I had to pull out another buddy from a ditch. His ZJ was pretty much on its side in the ditch. Never thought of taking a pic of that though. And we even had a video camera that nobody thought of using.





This next pic show how far i pulled him until he was able to turn out of the ditch. About ten feet more and we would have hit the end of the ditch. Due to the snow the entire ditch was hidden, which is how he ended up there in the first place. I had to use 4lo, and it was fun. We started where Cody's jeep is parked.




After we recovered the ZJ we drove to xrcodemans where we had to diagnose a problem with my jeep. It was misfiring for some reason and found it to be a fault spark plug wire. Sparks were actually coming from the wire. Obviously i dont feel like dying so we replaced it.

Now that is a sweet ride. I like the rack and spare and plan on doing that to mine. BUT, just how do you get that big heavy mug of a spare off the rack? Do they make a crane attachment for those racks? LOL. Guess I better hit the gym in case I get a flat.

You dont need to hit the gym... at least to play basketball with the basket ball hoop attachment.




In all seriousness, its easy to just roll the tire down the windshield of just throw it at somebody and let them try to catch it. You could always keep a small rope to lower it down with. but i choose the hood method.
