Don't even joke about that it started on the same day. Haha I checked both fans and their working normally. There was a little bit of brown junk under the cap. Does that count as crap? The fluid looked clean though

Getting tired of your jeep is part of it. Everyone gets tired eventually but you will fall back in love with it. Don't sell it because you will regret it.

I guess. Time for some major upgrades if I'm keeping her. Unibody plating and that ****ing junk of a front axle needs to get fixed.

X2, I went through a few XJ's before I figured this out.

Your on 34s and you fire wall it everywhere you go buddy. If you beat on her she will break just upgrade it not to break again or fix It and take it a little easier. Jeep life gotta love it

Started trimming to fit the 33s





Any guesses as to what backspacing I have here? The tires are 33x12.5

This so hard.

I hadn't even touched mine in a month, put it on craigslist to sell it, piston exploded, and once I started ripping the engine apart I regretted ever putting it on CL.

Though my Jeep probably knew I was going to get rid of it and blew up just to spite me.

I replaced my starter and alternator last Tuesday. I have been having voltage drop issues and they both tested bad. I had to put the battery on the charger since it was almost completely drained. I busted my arm up at work the next day and now I can't lift the battery to put it back in. Now my jeep and I set staring at each other unable to have any fun. In hindsight, I should have just waited until the wife got home and gave it a jump.

Been window shopping the interwebz... no money to spend on the Jeep though, starting Christmas shopping early this year for the family. I think Ima give them ****ing coal next year, the Jeep needs some new doo-dads.
