funny that they didnt leave a single scratch..

and I have found out that even the salvage yards want a ton of money for shells, locks, levers, paneling, a total headache and a budget buster.
Fellow jeeper is the only to blame!

True shit there, hopefully I'll have a squad car in my driveway to prevent any theft . My jeep is to tall for garages with the lights up top

Figured out that it wasn't my drive shaft squeaking it is the passenger brakes... I'm going to get the rotors turned. Hope that fixes it

That's too funny! Last week i was driving home and it started raining. I had the top up, but no doors or windows. I had the wipers on and they were going like crazy, but i couldn't get some of the rain cleared from the windshield. I had a brief moment where i thought something was wrong with my wipers

man it sucked... I left my house it was 95° and sunny. When I left where I went about an hour later, I could see the dark sky off in the distance. I got about 5 miles from home and the bottom fell out, needless to say my 8yr old son wasn't thrilled about getting soaked.

Today I explained to the insurance adjuster that driving a periwinkle passat rental car is considered "pain and suffering" while I wait to find out the fate of my Jeep (totaled or fixable).

My 13 year old wheel cylinder decided it didn't want to stay together any longer....



Looks like I'll be doing the rear brakes sooner than I thought

I replaced the rear brake shoes, hardware, wheel cylinders and drums. The hardest part was getting the brake line off the wheel cylinder, all in all it took me about an hour and a half.... not bad for my first time

old leaking cyl


new brakes


even painted the drums black
