I'm usually the one trying to get stuck, but I didn't get stuck this time. I think I could have tried harder.

I will try harder next time. My winch taking a crap really got me burned up. I called 4WD and they have a solenoid on the way, they have great cust svc.

Next run will have to be a Sunday, I'm out of Saturday vacations.

if im doing a Sunday run, i'll probably have to bail around 2pm-3pm. ya, i can believe that your winch kicking the bucket really got you down. all the stucks were a bit bothersome for me, just wasnt looking good and i already got water in my air box once. i'll probably set up a run mid July because i have some work to take care of before i take my XJ back out.

jsebastian, ya my wife took a picture of you peeing lol everyone whos seen that picture has meantioned it to me for the most part.

Did you check your airbox yet? There has to be a small puddle in there.
I checked when I got home... either it drained itself out or there wasn't much water in there...

njfreekshow, i really wasn't peeing. I was, uh, looking for another way around...yeah that's it...

The noise might just be wharton in your brakes somewhere. Happens to me all the time, it usually will go away on its own.

my SIL's bf thinks its a bad pulley bear, because i'll start up my XJ and let it run. after about a minute or 2, it starts to sound like its scraping while idling. i can set on the gas and it sounds like it goes away a bit, but that could also be because my exhaust starts roaring. either way, i wont be hitting the trails til i get all the crap i have to do and its not a small bit of work lol

edit: i have 2 video clips from my cell phone but they arent the best quality.

The pines ate my idler pulley bearings last time. Good thing a replacement was only $8.

I have an intermittent grinding from that area again, but only for about 5 min after I start the engine. I feel like it just needs to work the sand out of itself, and that it will go away on its own this time. My engine is quiet enough that I can hear it unless the music is blasting.

Other than that, it smells like a sewer, and I get a cyclone of sand whenever the front windows are down. It'll work itself out.

right now i stole my wife`s WJ til my buddy comes up and looks at my jeep. im hoping its the bearing in my pulley, but it sounds bad. its fine for a minute or 2 but i started it before i went to bed and it was affecting my idle. it sounded as though my engine was going to cut off. i step on the gas a bit and it sounds a bit better. figures, i pay off my WJ and my XJ craps out on me lol i just dont want to take the risk of driving it and hope it works itsself out.
