I looked at it and decided that I need to look at why the brake lights don't work, so I turned around and walked away.

Remember: Owning A Jeep is a lot like having Herpes, sure it may act up from time to time but you'll never get rid of it...
went out to drive it to the store for some smokes and found a dead battery!! guess i wont be driving the heep for a little while!!!i guess thats another system i can go ahead and comletely replace and upgrade!!!
Drove it to work and school like i do everyday... freezing my butt off the whole way.
I did the exact same thing...minus the freezing part...So glad I changed that heater core and blower motor last month!!

uuuummmmm looked at it through the window, and realized that
i dont really have to work on it any more cause its practically sold lol.
So I got up off my butt, started up the ole' 351, maybe I spun my 33s without dropin the clutch. Drove through a school zone where a bunch of kids always give me crap....So I smoked the tires real good near them..drove away laughin
Your not pushing the limits of your jeep until your on your side, then something breaks and it's time to go home.
School was out so no work today, yeeeeeeaaaaaahhhh! Fixed idle, remounted rear view mirror, took passenger side visor off and rigged it, ordered my Black Diamond 3" lift (2 weeks of waiting), slipped around on the ice on my bald street tires!
I was running speaker wire in teh CJ so I pulled back the carpet, and found a giant patch of rust on the drivers side around 8 inches in diameter. I also found a similar, smaller patch on the passenger side.
Last time we wheeled the cj was like 3 years ago.... we ended up crossing a creek a couple times. I guess the carpet dried, but the insulation never did, as it's still wet.
One of the reasons we bought this jeep was because it had no rust.
