I'm still up for it. My jeep is in the shop today, stalled on highway 110 on my way to work. Turns out the negative terminal cable was loose, not to mention the shot spark-plug wires, cap, and plugs. I also just ordered a Kolak custom exhaust this past week after my computer started throwing around p0420 (catalyst inefficiency) codes. I'm looking forward to hearing that 3" pipe + flowmaster 70 purr...

Lol, yeah it was -7 here this morning at 8am. Always carry emergency materials here in mn. I was actually able to run it a bit while I was waiting for the tow so I was able to keep pretty warm. But I only had an additional jacket. I think now I'll keep a blanket too.

Agreed. Although a lot of people just don't have the capacity to help. In my prior car, a G35, I could give assistance if there was a golf-based emergency or if 2 80 lb bags of sand could fix it (the only crap that would fit in my trunk), otherwise I was about as worthless stopping as I would be just driving past.

For some reason now that I have the Jeep there's this deep need to want to find someone in trouble and tow them to safety. In the last 2 weeks I've pulled 2 cars out of snow and yanked (I know, a bad idea but I was angry at my roommate for being an idiot) a RAV4 from an ungodly stuck spot along a hill . Definitely need a winch soon lol.
