The mighty little tj soldiers on

So I'm setting off on semi cross country trip number two in 6 months in my TJ. Lafayette Indiana to Salt Lake City. I have no doubts 90% of the Jeep will make this trip but my transmission isn't long for this world and I only have 3 shocks if you see me somewhere out on the 80 give me a wave! Or a 42rle... That'll do too.

You know you drive a TJ when you have the parts for the mod, the right tools for the job, a BFH & still need a Sawzall to get the job done!

So... I had a minor setback. I stopped for fuel outside of Omaha, popped the hood to check vitals and a neat 4 inch long (horizontal) hiss was coming out of the top of my radiator. Luckily I caught it before it completely let go and I was next door to an Advance so I ponied up the almost $200 to swap in a new one. Keeping my fingers crossed that's the only issue i have. Tomorrow is a new day.
