When are you taking it out next?
Ill probably have it out in October. Rolling it into the shop to finish some loose ends.

Been a day since I've seen you around WJ. lol We'll have to get back out there once you get the Jeep out of the shop. Heard Pancake Rock is a bit rougher now.

The check engine light turned off. Guess there wasn't a problem after all. Love it when jeeps fix themselves.

Did you pay extra for the self-repairing feature.

Mine started beeping at me on the way home yesterday. Funny thing is it was during one of the odd times my check engine wasn't on.

Well at least they did not stop to take pictures before getting you back on your wheels....

This happened to me a while back. I could not get my seat belt off (had to cut it) and someone ran to get the camera before get me out....




I got to drive it out too. all good

I was hung up and could not go either direction. The plan was to get in front and pull me up. Slow motion tip.

"Get me a knife to cut the seat belt!"

"Are you hurt?"

"No"

"Camera first"


After all this I put a fist size rock under my tire and was able to get up and over. true story.

Agree... Maybe I should have just tried to pull him back out instead of trying to pull him forward.

The worst of it was when we put ONE SMALL ROCK behind Jeff's jeep and he hopped right out of the hole ... after getting me back on four wheels
