Gents, thoughts/prayers/etc. tonight, had to leave my ZJ out in the hills because of the weather. Went out earlier and was just fine, nice and tacky out, hour later the rain started to come down HARD and flooded most of the trails. Couldn't make it back out with the 2wd, had to leave the beast out there.

Really hoping/praying nobody messes with it and that it's all safe, I honestly can't afford to put much more into it to fix it right now, and I need it for the winter months. It's all locked up tight, really hoping nobody messes with it

I have a set of 31's on 5x4.5 wheels that I'm going to bring out tomorrow and stick on the rear and try to make it out, should be able to deflate them more than the 29's on it, and they have more tread.


All about that unibody life.

I'll pray for the ZJ. Hopefully the tires will work to get it out. If I had off I'd lend a hand as well.

His front DS is all screwed up.

My Jeep is still 2wd. Funny thing, he tried to get me to go out with him tonight. I had work so I missed out. Glad I did lol, can't be leaving my Jeep out in the boonies.

You know driveshafts are like 30 bucks at the junk yard right. I have three spares in my garage right now.

I don't wheel alone. Never turns out well if you do. Murphy's Law.

Wasn't wheeling alone, and I'd gladly have my buddy pull me out, except this thing has no tow points on it

Joey you wouldn't have gotten stuck, your Jeep isn't a pig with no suspension like mine is

I am going to have to go to the junkyard and pull a front shaft sometime soon, fixing my computer kinda killed my spending budget this paycheck... Which is about the only good news I have, my computer works again

All about that unibody life.

Pilot error, I was not the pilot. I do not fly airplanes because they are dangerous. I only fly helicopters. Much safer. Trust me.
This is the reason in the picture of my son's belt pic, that the Master on the left was once my student, and is now my Master. I had to take a really long break from Kung Fu and he passed me up. He was a green belt when this happened and I was a first degree black belt. Fate.
Holy crap Rik.

Going down tonight if I can get a ride. Don't feel like walking 2 miles after spending a whole 9 hours on my feet cleaning the dealership

Update, got the pig home safe and sound. Threw some 31's on the rear, aired them down real low, and she crawled right on out. Had to hit one spot with a bit of speed and bump out over it but it's back home. Drove just fine, except the ABS threw a light.

All about that unibody life.
