that was awesome.

why did the guy operate the tcase shifter so awkwardly . . i suppose they requested the actor to do it to show the shift pattern and options located on top of the knob. . . still - looked, weird.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

Las Vegas! 98% of the time it IS hot & dry.

On the way to work yesterday I went through a storm. There's high mountains all over obscured by rain.

That is great to hear. I am in Charleston SC and still waiting for what I hope to be nothing.

My sister in law lives in Summerville. I haven't heard anything bad from them. I'm pretty sure they left though. Haha.

I changed the ICM on the side of the freeway and it didn't fix it. Let it sit again and it managed to make it home. Wouldn't start the next morning. Ended up being the fuel pump.

IDC how old it is. The damn thing has never left me stranded. Hahaha.
Jeesh you technohippie bum.
You disappeared like you’d started restoring classic Priuses and iconic yugos.
Yeah I lost ambition for the Jeep. I'm working a lot and just daily drive it. It's worse for wear at this point so I'm back to ensure I do something about it. Lol

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Glad everything worked out and you and your family are safe and sound...

Speaking of a jeep worse for wear...what in the heck exactly is going on here?

How can you lose as an aftermarket retailer for JKs? I hope the JL crowd doesn't get mixed up in this. Probably inevitable though.

I'm by myself so I'm going to have to be real careful. People have died here and it's pretty desolate.
I'll head to the North Pole!
This dune is well over 500 feet high. Since I'm alone and it's getting dark, I'll just look at it...

Some soft sand.
Found it! It's the North Pole. This is where kids put letters to Santa Claus. Santa Claus sends his elves to check this mailbox. The mailbox is to the right.

Time to go home before Joanne reports me missing! Saw a lone camper, had to check & make sure they weren't stuck. They were ok, some vacationers from Europe. Nice camp spot!
Nice sand storm on the way out...
Merry Christmas everyone!

One of the people in our Jeep club can't go wheeling next weekend because she's going to be in the Dallas 'Dub Show.'

I don't know what a dub show is, but I can guess.

Poor 'campers'. They see your HIDs and light bar flashing at them and the paranoia probably ran up their spine.

Chris, leave 'em alone man, they're just cooking a little meth. Lol
