Re: Important

Also re wired those fog lights. The relay that was on there was had corroded terminals and the wires were just laying over the top of the engine somewhat tucked away. And 3 different sizes of wire all inter twined together. A new wiring kit was 11 bucks on Amazon, can't beat that. Wrapped it all nicely with some wire loom tape I've had for a while and shit looks factory.

Soon I'm going to have to spend some actual money and get some sliders and lockers.

Re: Important

I bought a 97 cherokee witga blown head gasket. Tossed a 'spare' motor I had lying around in it. Runs good.

Next mod - buying a dedicated car seat for my 15 month old (swapping back and forth sucks) then time to drive some fire roads

Re: Important

Why am I up at 4:30am? Because it is stupid uncomfortable in my house that has been without power for 36 hours. Even with the neighbor hater humming next door I can’t sleep. Now I’m looking into some type of neighbor hater for future long outages. Lost all our food but we don’t keep much food in the house, just enough to get by for 3-4 days. Supposed to power by 11:59pm Sunday. Hopefully sooner, but if not my family is going to go to my moms in the morning, she has power.

Around 1/3 of the terre haute and surrounding area is without power. Duke has 300 outside contractors here or coming.

Still regret selling my xj, now wrangler prices are stupid high. Might have to look into a bronco that is setup like a wrangler (not the bronco sport) in about five years when both our cars are paid off.

Important

Got a couple jeeps and a yota in the garage. Still trying to get a fire sprinkler company to even look at extending the house system in there, so I don't know when I'll be able to finish the inside

Re: Important

Sold my yota. Just a jeep guy now.

The JK seemed to pull the pop up fine around town. Real test will be next week on the way to MI. Maybe I should install the trans cooler that's sitting in the garage first...

Re: Important

I'm really liking the 4runner, now that I finally got it cleaned up and the dog stench killed.
Neighbor I got it from had a service dog that literally went everywhere with her. I vacuumed and lint rollered enough dog hair from the interior to make a large dog, maybe two.
