Had a new power steering line made after mine blew out. Guy put the wrong fittings on it, bummer. Had to drive my jeep off a trailer it had been sitting on for the past two weeks with no ramps. Just rolled it off the back, the front of the trailer poped up once the weight was centered past the rear axles. Actually worked pretty well.

I think leaving the jeep on the trailer that long warped the trailer frame. the line blew out while i was backing it off the trailer. I got to close to the side of the trailer and the tire got pinned then the line blew, so naturally the jeep was positioned on one side of the trailer for a long period of time. What a DA thing to do.

And now they will not flash, any ideas?
common problem...LED's do not draw enough current to work with a stock flasher, you'll need to change it, or add something (can't remember what it's called) inline to help with that

Wouldn't you want to go the other way and get a less heavy duty flasher?

Well...

I picked it up from the shop at Hampden and Santa Fe where they determined (finally) that the miss was because Chrysler engines are not compatible with splitfire spark plugs. Switched the plugs and the miss is gone, engine like new. Crazy right?

However, the assumption that the running stall was linked to the miss was incorrect and I only made it to Hampden and Havana before it stalled. For those of not familiar with Denver that would be exactly 7.21 miles of joy before the stall.

As for the cause of the stall? Don't know...it was being put on a tow truck the last time I saw it.
