Went Snow Wheeling yesterday with some guys from Jeepforum. Had a blast!






STUCK!




It twas a great day, except for the fact my check engine light came on. It came on after i got pulled out. I was shifting through the gears, Drive, reverse, park, drive, reverse, park. As you can tell a lot of snow got stuck under my engine. Well i got unstuck, helped some other guys get unstuck, then i started my Jeep and it started really hard (almost as of it was about to die) then my check engine light came on and the temp gauge went from 210 to like 140. I drove it home and it finally made it to 210, but the engine light never turned off. Any ideas?

hmm, first off I'd probably let it thaw out good and disconnect the battery to see if it resets the fault.

We aired down there..so yes, we went up the hill a ways!!!

Its been sitting in my garage all day, ill probably disconnect the battery tomorrow. My LA's arrive tomorrow as well. My biggest question now is: Do i run 33's or 35's? (keep in mind i dont have money to re-gear right now)

33's are pretty rockin and hold good resale value used if you gear down before wearing out. I don't think I'd like 35's on stock gearing.

Sounds good. I was thinking just some 33" KM2's. And since people seem to be upgrading to 33's im sure i wouldnt have a hard time selling them. Plus i need to get used to having LA's and 5 inches of lift.

yeah and at 5" you'd need some heavy bumpstopping to keep from rubbing 35's pretty hard under flex. didn't realize you were growing so tall.
