Ran errands with the wife in it and it died out sitting at stop light. First time that's ever happened. Everything seems ok, weird that it happened.

Took her to the local OHV park where I got a little dirty. I actually think it's the first time the WJ's been dirty since it's been lifted! Got a video of me running through their sluice box, you can hear my friends making jokes about a minivan fording through water

New heater core over the weekend. Agree with several on here that it isn't that bad.. just time consuming. OReilly has a lifetime warranty one for about $80 and it is made out of brass like the original factory unit.

Seems not related to me unless for some reason your steering column shafts didn't get seated all the way back in. I had to pull mine up out of the firewall. Did you connect it well and tighten the bolt that holds it together well?

Otherwise, I would start looking at your steering components for wear or play.
