Had a successful snow day. Zero school work was done. There is about 5-6 inches on the ground and more coming tonight.

Drove the Jeep around to observe how people were driving. Let's just say that I saw 3 wrecks in about 30 minutes. All from following way to close behind one another. I kept about 10 car lengths front and back or did my best to, at all times.

Some pictures




The we also built an igloo all afternoon!

It is way overpriced. But it has a v8 and it is local and I want to go for a test drive and floor the crap out of it.

I rest my case. Exactly what I want, and I could probably talk him down $8k or so. Rims would be taken off and either sold or left with him on the spot out of principle... butttt my checking has less than $100 so I dont think this will be happening any time soon LOL

Comp, the one for 7K, the blue one, MINE MINE MINE! Hahahaha

As for shopping around to torture myself yes. The slightly sad fact of the matter is that my current WJ is never going to be sold or given to someone else. I could not let it go. It is pretty much mine and seeing how it is the original owner makes it that much harder to get rid of honestly.

Maybe if I could talk my parents into letting me buy a second WJ (04, Overland) and then my brother could use my current WJ. To at least keep it in the family. I just can't see myself selling it or trading it. It is too hard to do. The Jeep has NEVER left me stranded. Has been cosmetically and mechanically maintained to the max, because I (we, dad and I) did it all. It is such a tough decision. Not sure if dad would even let it go for the same reason.

Mine as well has been in the family since 10k and I know it has been cared for gently by my grandma, bless her she's a character, but it comes to a point where you look at what you have and what you want it to be and what you want to put on it and I've realized that I want it no slower than a stock i6 and I want 33s a lift and all these heavy accessories and without some pretty drastic power mods or regearing (at which time ill get the same if not worse mileage than a v8 ) it won't be the same. You and I both want better axles, a better engine, a better tranny, and different interiors (you want leather am I right?) I want agate leather . Mainly though once you've driven a 4.7 you always say to yourself... damn why didn't I get 'this' WJ. When you put your foot 3/4 down and get pulled into the seat and you still have more to go and the things only shifting at like 3500, feels good man feels good.

I was pretty surprised that I was pulling up those hills on the highway last weekend at 70 mph. Once it kicked down it held 70 with more pedal to go, of course it did not kick down all that smoothly. ha. Then again I am running about 220 hp at the crankcase and 255 ft pounds of torque.

I can swap axles and all I want for the interior is to put in the gray leather seats and that takes care of that. But I am still left with the engine (which is a bulletproof motor). But my only honest complaint is the transmission. Which can be built.

Even if I wanted to trade it in, I will have to talk to dad and see what he thinks about trading for an Overland.

Got to love our Grandmas!

How do you figure that? Stock specs are 190/210? Don't think the superchips could add more than 10hp. You're right too most of my hatred is in the 42re and I disguise it by blaming the other components. My 4.0 itself has been nothing but a pleasure as far as maintenance goes. Seems to be loving the Rotella oil. It doesn't sound like a diesel anymore on start up now that I've finally fed it turbo diesel oil... Go figure, Jeep has an attitude
