Got off call today, got in the heep for the first time in a week, put the key in, and it no start. Yeah broken actuator pin. Gettin a ride to the homestead so I can get some tools to take the column apart and get it started. Won't have the parts until tomorrow.

Hooked my regulator up from my kegerator to my oba tank. Total cost for my oba ended up being $96 and that includes filling the tank.

Got the heep home. Took the actuator out and a piece of metal fell on the floor. First things I said was look at this cheap P O S sintered metal thing. No wonder everyone has one break sooner or later. It just a cheap P O S!!!!!

New Mopar Water Pump, Dorman Water Pump Inlet Hose, Mopar TPS and Mopar CCV Elbows and Grommets installed today. Went pretty smooth. Finally got to test drive it to test those parts and the ZJ tie rod. It's running good and at temp, no leaking coolant, no codes (until the O2 code comes back) and the steering feels much tighter. No side to side wander and the 45 mph wobble is gone. Looks like I'm going to make it to the ride Saturday.

FINALLY got my heater fixed. Farmers almanac has this winter as a cold and snowy one. After troubleshooting, I pinned it on the heater core. So I stopped at the stealership for a quote... 500 for labor and a whopping 550 for the core. I walked right out and into the local parts shop and got the core for 53 dollars! My local mechanic did the install for 400 bucks, and now I got razor hot heat!

Old Man Emu steering dampner, 31" Goodyear Duratracs, inadvertant disconnect, lots more planned

Hmm, there have been a good number of threads that basically you should have got the Mopar one as the aftermarket ones don't last. You can also order Mopar ones online for mid $300s. I would have bought the Mopar one online and take it to your local mechanic.
Hopefully yours does.

This might just be the stalker in me but that looks like you're at a sheetz?

Also, good choice on the duratracs, a good set of at tires in the snow will surprise anyone..
