I recently discussed how the WJ drives with my brother and his fiance. After thinking about it, I figured I'd post up what we talked about as a follow up to a previous discussion we've had here.
Back in July of 2012, I replaced my TRE's, Adjusting Sleeves, and aligned the WJ before taking it on a camping trip: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f197/...l#post13860475 On that specific trip, I felt that the WJ swayed quite a bit while driving down the interstate. We figured a combination of weight and tire pressure caused the issue.
Fast forward to Tuesday, my brother's fiance confessed that she hates driving my WJ and that it is all over the road. My gears started turning and I realized I no longer have this issue. The WJ drives straight and smooth, even with 4 adults and a baby riding along. The sway bar end link adjustments must have helped as that's the last I've done to the suspension.
Saturday night we checked the freezing temperature of the coolant in the vehicles to make sure they were good for the -15°F temperatures. All was well until I popped the cap of on the WJ... After a trip to town for some coolant, I found I was about 2/3 of a gallon low. Crap.
Last night we hopped in the WJ to head to Fridays and both ReJeana and myself noticed the unmistakable sweet smell of antifreeze when I kicked the heater on. Most likely, my heater core has a small hole which explains the lost coolant. I'll keep an eye on the coolant level to verify a leak but I foresee a long Saturday ahead.
After changing the oil and rotating the tires, we went to a friends house to watch the fights the other night. When we arrived, RJ parked a little crooked because the spot next to us had a bunch of snow piled up. My friend's roommate was teasing us because of our parking so I moved over for her... Needless to say, RJ had trouble getting in.
The quality isn't great but the pictures are still fun.
Curtis making sure she doesn't fall...
Almost dropped a spring...
Also, while grabbing the above pictures off of Photobucket, I saw these from a long time ago. Remember when the grass was green?
