I plan on riding the wagoneer around the neighborhood, its mobile again! Gotta test its drivability though, dont want to discover any kinks while on the trail, haha.

I should probably put the hood back on too, huh?

soooo, the jeep is officially back together and I had it out on the streets this weekend.

Drives like a dream! Well, it drove like a dream until I overheated my tranny and lost 2nd and 3rd gear, then overheated the truck and spewed out a ton of coolant.

CRAP! : :

Fellow Vegas Jeepers:

Anybody here like to fish? I went to Floyd Lamb today, and that pond (more like a puddle) was PACKED. I think I'm going to Jeep into a remote part of Lake Mead next weekend. Anybody wanna go/been before/have any other suggestions on off the beaten path fishing spots?

I've been down powerline road to the river before, definitely want to have 2 vehicles as there are some soft sand spots near the water, pretty easy to get stuck in.

I enjoy fishing but certainly wouldn't call myself an expert, and having just moved to Vegas don't know any spots but I'm down to go ride/explore and try to catch something

sigh, I'm admitting defeat on this damn transmission.
