It's not your work internet. It's white man trying to hold me down by blocking copyrighted content.

There'd be as much, if not more, for your buggy as Bridgeport, I recon. There is some treacherous terrain there

Maybe now she works (I used one of the songs from youtubes library, but it seems to let the original play now while the edit is being made)

Can't wait to make it to Tolar sometime with you guys, looks like an awesome park.
Once I get caught up on some work on the jeep I'll be ready to go.
Still need to get my t-case figured out. Haven't been working a whole lot so jeep funds have been low and all my extra time has been spent with the new kiddo.

Completely understandable, and it's not like Tolar is going anywhere (though the park has been pretty much vacant both times I went... donno how they can afford to stay open)

We are going to be doing some night wheeling here in Amarillo next Friday. I need to figure out why the buggy is over heating.

Cause Texas is stupid and it's been a million degrees since march. The Rubicon I was with yesterday hit 258

I got up like 247 for a bit, had to let it idle under a tree with the hood open for about 15 minutes.

Was cool using the bluetooth obdII xmitter and torque app, it has an alarm feature you can program to sound at certain coolant temps... thing was beeping up a storm.

Last time I took it out it got up to 260 I went and gave it a bath in the river. I have a few things I'm going to try this week while I am off and hopefully fix the issue. I'm hoping it's something simple like a stuck thermostat.

Mine is still running hot too. Normally it had been going back to normal temp at speeds under 50mph.

This is where it stayed today, would go up a hair around 60mph. Pic was at idle



Been trying to figure this out for awhile now, new water pump, fan clutch, thermostat, and flushed the fluid several times.
It worries me that I'll be driving down the road with the kiddo and overheat then be stuck in 100+ heat with a newborn.

I try to take really good care of my jeep, but I'm having a heck of a time keeping up on repairs. And my dd is about wore out.

Don't think it is. I hear actual obd 1 is rare as well. Most manufacturers had their own onboard diagnostics, or so I hear. The app is called torque though
