$3.60/gal seems pretty steep, I just paid $3.30 last night to fill up. Was that in a remote area?
Took my son to Gatlinburg, TN for the weekend and gas in Pigeon Forge was $3.08/gallon.

My drivers side cardboard sun visor was hanging by the upholstery cover. While I was getting the CJ ready for a two state jaunt across Oklahoma and a portion of Arkansas on the Trans America Trail, my son Blake fabricated some 1/8" aluminum replacement visors for me.imageuploadedbyautoguide1383739008.082426.jpg [color=gray]Sent fro

Is that your dome light attached to the wiper motor cover?

Found the source of the awful grinding on the way home from wheeling Saturday. The spring and adjuster piece must have popped loose when I put the parking brake on when it was on the trailer.
Now I just need to sledge my frame rail back into place.
Overall, I didn't find any real damage.

It was being sluggish today, noticed the oil pressure gauge was really low so I checked... Apparently whoever worked on my engine didn't seal it well... I was missing a quart of oil. It only has about 600 to 700 miles on it, I got the Jeep with a rebuilt engine and 300 miles on it a few months ago. New project to tack on, still wanting to rewire this weekend or the next, have the harness sitting in my room.

Gas was $2.85 here in Chesterfield, MO last week, it's been really low lately. This summer it was up to $3.80+ for regular. Taking advantage of it right now.
