Went to the dealership yesterday to diagnose some problems. I told them about the fuel spitting back at me, and that I thought it was the valve, and they ordered a new tank no question. They're also going to look at the front ball joints and replace those as needed (under warranty), and I'm having them align the jeep (I have to pay for that). I've got 1500 miles left on my warranty and I've got a lift and 35's, and they have no problem with replacing the ball joints and the tank under the warranty.

What is wrong with the ball joints or how did you know something wasn't right with them?

and the beat goes on

Dealer tried to charge me 50 bucks to NOT be able to diagnose my/the steering wheel clunk, by diagnose they meant drive around for an hour and not hear anything. Since I'd prolly get banned for mentioning names...if your in Tucson think the sound you hear when you load the barrel.....they also have my gas tank on order and say I have a 100 dollar deductable, they also say if a recall comes out they'll reimburse me, or I could trade it in and get free lifetime maintenance..... on a happier note CalTops/ORH just emailed pics of the hardware for my custom top which will roll forward or back and fit under the Congo Cage in Spice

The front end of the jeep likes to jump in different directions when it hits even the smallest of bumps at medium to high speeds. I'm just getting them to check them out, because I have a sneaking suspicion that they're going bad. They've been known to crap out early, and I want them to check them for me before my factory warranty runs out in 1500 miles.

Went 4x4'n

Guys... I had a dental appointment out in the sticks this morning. So, when it was over, I went muddin' this morning on my way back to the office... I slide it into 4x4... I drive in and it looks pretty burley, after a few yards I was genuinely scared. I was in deeper mud than expected. Wet soggy thick stuff. Felt like quicksand. After I got in another 25 yards.... I went "oh ****, keep going lil Jeep!" I realized I might be in a little over my ski's. I was alone and didn't have a winch.

Momentum started slowing, i realized I was in 4 hi instead of 4lo, I could feel that lowering sensation and loose mud fly....Uhhhhgggg... As the RPM's went down, the engine felt like it was about to start lugging (6 speed man.) and.... she started just creepin' along.... almost out of it.... almost to the end of the bog...allllmost.... The little 3.8 was roaring along, the BFG's were scrappin' for as much traction as they could muster. Stay calm stay calm.... "Sshhhhwoip!" It pulled itself out! Whooo Whoooo! Go Sahara!



Jeeps are so much fun. Welcome aboard to the new JK owner.



As I was leaving this mud bog, I saw another Jeep (a YJ) turning into the area I was driving out. Apparently he was just about to do the same thing. We both smiled at eachother and waved.
