Idk if it's just me or if I spent to many cold nights shivering in the freezing cold while serving in the military........ But I could never see myself doing that work in those conditions on my jeep. Props to you! Jeep On!

I felt the engine was running a bit rough, so I checked for a miss by pulling a wire off of the distributor and go a little jolt in my hand and again in my foot when it came back around.

Wow. I thought I toughed it out when I work on mine in a barely heated garage that I can just keep above freezing. At least I'm out of the weather if not the cold.
My hat goes off to you.

That's why I get a chuckle out of the new Jeep owners that complain that we don't wave back to them. When they do a job like you are doing, they will earn my wave of respect.

Glad to hear your wifes ok. It's nice to have a friend to help out when you need an extra hand.

Got the Jeep ready for a day of wheeling tomorrow. The trucks loaded up with tools and spare parts, I just need to hitch up the CJ and am ready to make the 80 mile tow. I just hope the rain doesn't change to snow. I love snow wheeling, but imagine flat towing on snowy roads would be impossible.



Had to screw on some steel plates to mount my magnetic lights.



Heading up to Wellsville Ohio. Anybody ever been there? It will be my first time there.

Went from 33x12.50, mostly warn, 20 year old tires down to a set of 31x10.50's, five years old and barely used, that I stole from my Suburban. We've got our first real snow storm of the year coming and the tire shop was ridiculously busy - go figure.

Do you wave at night when they can't see you?
