At least dropping the tanks on Jeeps isn't as hard as some other vehicles. Ive seen some that required the exhaust, and rear axle to come out...

Good luck, Im sure you'll get it fixed.

I just wanted to say, I dropped my phone in the ocean like a month ago.
And my fuel pump died at the end of a black trial at rausch creek, right in the middle of some ledges. Dropped the tank in the parking lot.

This "hurricane" brought some rain so I took the jeep to the river, found some mud and had a blast.

I sure did. It rained so much because we were supposed to get hit by the effects of Irene, but it ended out being really nice out later in the day and it left some beautiful puddles haha

Every time I go offroading though I seem to need a new tps sensor. Not a big deal because its under warranty but this will be the third..

Theyre evacuating down at the meadows. My friend tried to go back there today and they wouldn't let him. Going to be interesting to see how high the river gets. It's supposed to crest tomorrow. I live right near it too.

Yeah as I was leaving the meadows they were starting to block the roads off. I saw the cop that was blocking the road a few hours later at dunkin donuts in town and I was talking to him and he was saying the same thing, they want everyone out of there. I also got the ok to mud down there, no more worrying about cops I just never knew if it was legal or not. But it was pretty damn fun down there and I have a feeling it'll be like that for a while down there, a good few days or so.

Been to long for something to not go wrong with the jeep right? haha WELL.

I was driving and noticed this smell, I couldn't figure out what it was or if it was even my jeep and then I noticed my jeep was not accelerating at high rates at all and then when I pushed my break my jeep pulled to the left side. Then I realized it had to be my brakes so I pulled over and yep, front passenger side was smoking. Man that wheel was hot. Sat it out, hoping the brake would release, which it did a little bit, drove 15 miles home with only touching my breaks about 3 times. Took the wheel off, looked around, noticed that there was some rust and dirt in my wheel and I'm hoping that sh*t just got stuck in the caliper and wouldn't allow it to release. Sprayed some brake cleaner around. Drove it after it sat for an hour and it drove like a champ again. It's been two days and it hasn't happened again. If I does, i'll have to do some tests to see if it's something like my caliper hose or my actual caliper..any suggestions?

I would take it off and inspect you're rotor as well.
