maybe just bring it inside and set it near a heater for awhile then hook it up and let it charge off the other car for a few before cranking?

It sounds like all you need is a heavy doseage of ether.

My battery died in the garage right after hunting season. So I sprang for a Optima Yellow top. Ouch they are expensive. They better be worth it.

my wife's xj didn't want to start last night when she was at work, in -4 degrees. i'm thinking battery. but i'll test it before dropping another 120 bucks on an optima. not that mine wasn't worth it...

Well the snowplow guy thought he could block me in this morning with a hood high snowbank ....


He was wrong,didn't even have to break out the shovel. Backed up a few feet and mashed on the gas,then i cleaned all the snow off my hood again and went to work.

Happens to me also. Ever since I got the Jeep no one seems to care if the driveway is clear. Especially me.

Pretty wild around here today. 12" of snow, 25mph wind gusting to 35, and going to be -15 tonight. Should be fun tomorrow.

this wasn't the snow that got pushed to the side of his plow,this is the snow the he was clearing off the street and puting in piles two feet in front of my jeep!he saw my jeep,he just didn't care or thought it would be funny or somthing.he pushed it toward it then stoped a little ways back for a second,like he was thinking if he should burry my jeep or not,then just continued what he was doing.

oh well,it was kinda fun puting all the snow back in the road,aka,using my jeep to plow its own parking spot .
