Nervous? I'll bet. But you ran that company any way, so no worries.

BTW: My Jeep ran flawlessly on our trip. I put a lot of road and off road miles on it, did some pretty steep 4 low climbs yesterday, and it performed well. Glad we did that nutter bypass.

It's funny I called the general we have been doing a huge job for over the last year to let him know I am no longer with that company and now he wants to meet with me tomorrow about work. OH YEAH.

Glad the Nutter worked for you. I am having a hell of a time with this new carb. Now it won't idle or run right. I think I have a bad gasket somewhere but I need to be focusing on getting me some work and don't have time to figure it out.

Trace back alll the vacuum lines. Leaks wreak havoc on a carb.

Good luck at the meeting!

man! Got a lot done today!! Got most of the re-wiring job buttoned up. All my relays mounted and wired back up. Need to replace 2 light bulbs in my rock lights apparently. Got my new cool bicycle water bottle holders mounted to the down tubes of the roll cage and moved the old ones to the back of the center console. Mounted yet another ammo can. Sprayed another coat of Scotch Guard on the new Mastercrafts. Got the dash board all painted and put back together. Still need to tidy up some of the wiring under the hood and finish zip tieing everything in place where I want it. And I still need to get and replace the inner axle seal on the Dana 30. Want to go hunt down one more ammo can too. At this point all thats really left is basic maintenance, check the fluids. Change the oil and diff fluid in the tow rig and finish wiring up the Hellas I am installing on it and I'll be ready to go for TDS.

I had it in 4LO twice yesterday climbing up to the mine. I could have gotten out and walked along side it as it climbed on idle.
I had to gas it a bit to get up the tailings tho'.

Plenty O pics in the Winterblast thread.

Premo, I'll be out there most of the day again tomorrow. You must've swung by when I ran to Auto Zone. Needed some 12 gauge wire for the Hellas as they now have 130 watt bulbs in em. Stock wiring isn't big enough for that much juice. I'm gonna run to Napa in the morning and see if they have the inner axle seal I need in stock but past that i'll be out there workin on the YJ

I'll be up in bigbear this weekend. But i'm guessing the trails are buried under snow so i probably won't wheel. I need to get out in the dirt soon.
