hey Dana, did you ever get that windshield banner on your jeep?

also: today i discovered that i had coolant being sprayed all around under the hood...so i took it to advance and borrowed thier pressure tester. sure enough, when i got it up to 15 PSI, i found the leak. the freakin radiator has a leak on top where the plastic part is crimped to the metal part. looks like im gonna have to deal with that till i can afford an all aluminum radiator.

the list of things that need to be fixed stands right now as: new radiator and rebuild transmission.

Damn I never thought I would ever miss work. Have been out of work since Feb.
I need to do the visor repair, my passenger side visor flopped on the floor like a fish today.

Pulled the pitman arm to try and center my steering wheel (PO replaced the steering box right before I bought the Jeep), only to find that with the steering wheel centered and the tires pointed straight ahead the alignment of the key/keyway in the pitman arm and steering box output shaft miss by only about half the width of the key/keyway. I didn't realize that there were keys/keyways in the pitman arm and output shaft, I thought I would be able to just rotate the shaft one spline at a time until the steering wheel was centered. With the key and keyway aligned the steering wheel is almost 90 degrees off center to the left... I hope the steering wheel can be centered by way of a front end alignment, it really bugs me being off center and the left turn signal doesn't self cancel after a left turn.

You sure they aren't just unfocused?

I have they same lights and they are pretty bright. Sometimes I wish I had some nice led headlights, but for the price they are fine.

It's not that big a deal. They have to cover by law, but with all the rain we get that's probably not a bad thing!

I learned my lesson about drving into water. The river pic was taken from the bridge. I thought about driving over the creek bridge that had water going over it, but I came to my senses

I wanted to drive down to the river bottom, but there are trees down and it's swampy as hell.
