Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

I've been doing small repairs to my Jeep

Replaced the gas struts on the hardtop hatch - no more "bonks" on the head

Put in a new shifter boot bezel so the boot stays put

Drained and flushed the coolant system

Drilled out the door strap anchor screw that had broken and replaced

put in a new battery - old one was still working (poorly) but was gonna get me stranded now that it's getting cold.

Been driving the Jeep a lot - snow to play in

You only get so many miles....enjoy em

If you want to argue...go talk to yourself.

After getting some things stolen out of my Jeep, I got a new lockable steel 3cf box and attached it with aircraft cable to the loops in the rear.

It could still be stolen, but someone would have to be using cutters and not just reach in and grab. So I'm happy.

Pics to follow.

It's pretty bright and disperses light well since the stock housing for the third brake light is small plus you don't have to mess with or change the flasher since it's not on the flasher circuit. Make sure you buy it it in RED to match the color of the reflector though. You may find it cheaper on ebay as I only bought mine from superbrightleds since I had good luck with them in the past.

The 2357 bulbs for the two tail lights are just standard bulbs you can buy at even walmart and they are a bit better than stock. I do have projector LED bulbs as backup lights in the stock housing which work great but took some minor modification to work properly so it was about the same price as buying off-the-shelf backup lights from walmart.

Thanks for the response. Gonna add it to my list of bulbs on order and see how she works. Now to figure out which LED dome light replacement to order.

I'm always get things stolen out of my jeep. I miss my McGregor batting gloves dearly, also miss my 4-way lug wrench.

I recently installed these http://www.mcgard.com/index.php/auto...eep-door-locks as I came out to jeep one afternoon an didn't recall removing the doors. In fact I just put them on for a wet weekend camp/trail ride.

Bastards!

I had to explain to roommates at school that my jeep was no less secure in our parking garage topless/doorless & in fact overall it was safer having my windows & doors locked in my room than on the jeep

Don't worry tomorrow she'll take away X2! that's my luck anyway

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.

Are you sure it was actually filled? I've put gas in mine before where it cut off and the handle wouldn't stay held in (as if it was full) but later realized it had only put a half a tank in.

Eh I don't know, I used the self pump handle thing and stared into the sky as it filled. Clicked and I assumed it was full.

Did some light-duty wheeling.
Just running through some trails along the river ... we've had a lot of rain the last few weeks... lots of mud and LOTS of erosion ... made for a slow, rough, but fun ride! (and went through a few hundred rounds of .40 S&W while we were out there )

The driveline issues have gotten serious enough that dad does not want me driving home. Looks like my step dad is going to have to drive the Powerstroke and gooseneck all the way to Raleigh and back to get my POS home. I am so done with this POS.
