I put about 125 miles on mine today!

(Which doubles the mileage I had on these tires until today.)

I took off the hard top, then bought a trolling motor for my boat in Howell. No wiggles, wobbles or anything weird, right up to about 75 mph. Bump steer is almost non-existent. Tank was full when I left, and I'm sitting at a little under 3/4 of a tank, which is pretty damn good mileage.

I'm not quite ready to write it off as hyper-awareness just yet, so I threw 9 gallons of coolant and water in the back

I put mine to work this weekend - dragged the camper to Atlanta, spent the day Saturday running up and down the Atlanta ORV system doing our semi-annual trail/route maintenance, went elk viewing, and dragged the camper back home. It's good to get out once in a while, even if on flat, sandy 2wd ORV routes.

Well, Jeep didn't blow up today. Only had to drive a total of 3 miles, but I still count it as a win.

Jury's still out on my cylinder head. She still runs.

Only thing I did to it today is drive the wheels off to work and back, and used it as a makeshift ladder to get up on the roof to nail down the siding that continually blows off..

Helped a girl flush her coolant the other day. Went to turn the fan on in the car and the whole dash was vibrating along with an awful smell coming out. Found this in the blower motor.

I was drinking this while working on it, absolutely delicious.

I'm going to crawl under my Jeep Sunday probably to get this bearing replaced. I'll do it in the parking lot if I have to.
