Just peeked at my CJ as I left for work while I was remember that yesterday it was in the 70s and I drove it to work. After work, the wife and I took the Jeep and went out to dinner. ....thinking all along, "This thing is running great. What don't I know is about to happen?" ....and... thinking that I need to pull the engine but it's sure running good.

I drove it into the woods in my yard to rescue my son and my tractor. He managed to sink the tractor in a swampy creek. I even got to use the winch to pull it out .

For the first time since last June I drove it to the gas station.
The last time it went it had a 258 under the bonnet, now it's got a 360.
Man what a difference, can't wait to get it tuned up but at the minute it really flies

Drove it to work for the first time in two weeks. much like griswold though this is the best this thing has ran since i got it, also thinking, ok whats about to break. Took a deep breath and rationalized to myself that much like humans, jeeps just need some time off to rest and heal themselves, everything will be ok.

Drove it to work. Wondered what gaskets and seals I'm all going to need to replace to keep water out of the cab during a rainstorm (3.5 inches of rain last night). Ordered a YJ brake cylinder and booster to perform the swap.
