not really in the Jeep, but you guys reminded my of it
My grandpa had had knee surgery and had had his knee replaced. He could not walk very well and is used to workin almost all day doing projects. he had been off his feet for a month, and now was not really getting back into doing anything, just watching T.V.
So i decided i needed to do an oil change and diif fluid change and put in the new starter. Asked him if he would supervise since i hadn't done it B4, It was the first time he was out of the house doing a project in months, he was so happy after that back to himself, i wouldn't say he smiled, but as close as he ever gets to it he loves my jeep too (55 cj5, but i think my family thinks it's an M38A1 b/c it i spainted that way and has a puch start)
beat time in my jeep was when i finally go it going after not being able to get it to start, then no clutch, and no alternator, and no battery, and leaky radiator, well the first time i used it to haul 4 ft. sections of logs I was pretty happy and i swear i saw the jeep smile after being dormant for 15 yrs.
