Drove it through a field, wasn't muddy enough to use 4wd though. Drove it over 100 miles to a bon fire and right now on the trip odometer has about 150 miles and it hasn't reached 3/4 mark yet.

I just got home from a NRA meeting last night. Took the jeep, and played in feilds then got hammered. Pretty good night. Now I'm just trying to wake fully up so I can go do alittle work on my jeep before aircruiser comes over, so we can patch his exhaust. The I gotta take the girl out tonight to " make up" for spending time with Freinds,jeep,jeep,jeep,jeep, Oh and I think she complained about that "da* jeep"........ Its not a good idea to date, and have a XJ

I don't know, a lot of highway miles. Fresh air filter, oil change only halfway through 3k miles, I sorta baby it also. I am halfway between 1/2 and 3/4 with about 170 now. I did about two tanks ago throw some Lucas oil tune up in a bottle.

Vacuumed the inside. I'm still finding dried up mud and dirt from 2 weeks ago.

My wonderful XJ decided to start peeing gasoline out of the fuel pressure regulator O ring. All over the nice hot exhaust manifold.

$75 later there's a new pressure regulator in place and all the fuel is going where it's supposed to.

I want to meet the guy that thinks 75 bucks for a fuel pressure regulator (that is smaller than a thermostat but essentially works the same way) is a fair price, and punch him in the face.

I want to meet the guy who thinks that having to replace the entire fuel pressure regulator for $75 to fix a $0.30 O ring is a good idea and rob HIM for the other $74.70!!

Got some wheels and tires for $200. The wheels don't fit the tires, and the tires are pretty much fubar (way off balance, some sidewall damage, hold air fine though). The wheels are 15x10 though, so I think I can sell them and get some decent tires.

On the bright side, my jeep looks SWEET with 31s.
