I was just by Findlay Cadillac and there is a yellow tj on the lot.

Yeah, I saw that one on the way in this morning too. I've never stepped foot on the Cadi dealer. Think they'll let me just randomly pop the hood to look around without giving me grief? I've got a couple contacts at the jeep dealer so I'm able to screw around a bit without getting bothered.

Just pretend like you are going to buy it and are very particular. Then tell them to F off. Unless they are decent to you.

LOL, they'd have to virtually give it to me to add another vehicle that's not capable of towing and not capable of 30+ mpg to my driveway collection! My next purchase will involve meeting one of those two needs. And even if they did give it to me, I'd likely just sell it and then go buy one or both of the vehicles to meet the needs in the previous sentence.

Khris, how did the drive rolls look on your welder? Lincoln site says that the drive rolls can wear out causing the wire to touch the guide tube. I am not sure if that is the problem you are having or not but if the guide tube is grounded I could see a problem there.

Sweet, I miss getting that kind of mpg. Glad that you are still liking it.


I still have yet to do a full tank in the Jeep without hitting a trail. The only non trail tanks were going to Colorado. But that trip had a roof rack and the Jeep only had 1500 miles on it. My last tank with Mormon Wells rd on it and pretty much all local driving was right at 16mpg... and oddly enough the computer actually read the same thing.

They're less then 6 months old as I replaced them late summer/early fall. The ones I replaced at that time though looked identical and were about 7-8 years old. I do need to wipe them down. I picked up a new liner so gonna try that tonight.

Is it blowing a fuse or just not feeding?
