Finally fixed my rear locker wire then promptly got the LJ stuck on a mound of overflow creek ice on a down hill section of a gully road. Dropped the passenger side front into a small ditch to the right with a scrub bush and large rock to the front drivers side between the Jeep and path down.

Trying to back up only slid the rear down hill so the Jeep was facing the side of the gully.

Needed to turn the Jeep 335 degrees around to the right using the winch anchored to four different places in order to get the Jeep turned around to get it facing down the hill.

Fun.

I agree, really upgraded the ride on mine also. Did you get them from Nick @Kolak he gave me a smoking deal on a set?

Got an auto dim compass/temp rear view mirror for $7 at a pick a part. Pulled it and the temperature sensor out of a 1500.


Also got a throttle return spring and throttle cable to finish up my hand throttle build.

Haha, all the FL cars aren't used to "cold" weather...my mom's car needs a battery now too.

I've read good things about the Sears diehard platinum batteries.

I'm running an Optima....supposedly they aren't as good of quality anymore, but it's the best I could get at the time & it's held up well for 4ish years so far

I got a *cheap* redtop & have had no complaints yet & it's held up to everything well. Granted we don't have many cold starts here. I have jumped quite a few cars/batteries though.

I tried to jump a diesel truck...haha, but I don't think it was the battery's fault....it was a diesel truck
