My husband is a brat!! I need to take the TJ tomorrow since the Pumpkin is in shop. I go out to load a couple things and notice the front looks a little different. Well he is sporting a new synthetic winch line, a new Poison Spyder fairlead & a nice Prolink.
So much for my Christmas ideas, I guess he gets his headlights and a bow on the hood He's so hard to buy for and he stole my ideas.

Here is a good example of why we don't wheel alone, why we don't shove 4 people in the back of a TJ, why we prepare, and why we tell people where we go when we wheel:

This family got really lucky. Could have been a bad Christmas for them.

Thanks for the good word on Cerritos Dodge, may have to use them some day as I will NEVER set foot in Hunter Dodge in Lancaster again! They have NO IDEA what customer service is, took them 5 hours to reset the computer for the 35's and gearing.
So bob, who makes the soft top on my TJ? The passanger side window has a problem and I want to start shopping for it's replacement. TIA!

I love success stories and happy endings. I especially like it when the guys in the white hats (us) win (like they are supposed to), and the bad man does not!

Yeah sometimes the greediness of this world just gets to me. I never understood how come people just want to rip others off. Good call Doc.
Lisa I had a great experience with Cerritos Dodge.. My Service Writer was a Lady. Debbie. She did an awesome Job. They were not the dealer I bought my jeep from but you might have thought I had bought 4 in the same day. They oh and Ah'ed my jeep and fixed it no charge. Never a word about Mods. I will make sure to tell everyone about their service.

|Ditchdoc||I wouldn't mad but these buttheads just want to rip people off. Telling me it's to old and parts are not available. I wouldn't mind 300 or 500 bucks but man are they greedy.|

My wife's Saturn decided last week to stay in park, damn. So Friday morning in the shade and cold I start tearing it apart to get to the brake switch, finally get to a point I can SEE the switch but can't get my fat hands in there. Double damn.
Pull the center console and disconnect the solonoid and hey it works! Woo hoo a free fix and a few hours lost but now it will shift. I was afraid I was going to have to tow it to the shop but got lucky.
Now I am thinking I should tear the console outta the jeep to see what I would have to do to it. Just in case, know what I mean?

The Pumpkin goes in for a head replacement tomorrow, that's her extreme makeover courtesy of Chrysler. Haha

|ELMOSYJ||And shes getting a paint job this week as well|

Looks like Pepper is getting and Extreme Makeover, Jeep style Nice!!
90% of the time all we read or hear about is how badly our service dept. treat us or won't cover something, etc. I have to say I'm not one of those. I was going to call my dealership this morning and just checked my phone, I had a call from them first thing. My parts were just offloaded from their truck and they offered to come to my office, pick up my Jeep and get me my loaner car.
Of course today I drove my car, haha. I made arrangements to drop it tomorrow, but they have been on top of the issue and made every effort to make it as easy on me as possible. I just think it's important to share the good experiences too

Yesterday a good buddy of mine welded Elmos 8.8 in for us. Hopefully he is able to post pictures when he is able to take it home. His waiting for the driveline to be ordered.

Well it's a good thing the parts will be in Monday for the Pumpkin, she started running horribly this evening. The check engine light has been on due to the misfire code, it started beeping and flashing at me and the econ light started flashing. I was idling at a stop light and it started running so rough I thought for sure it was going to die. I came home and parked it, the next time I drive it will be to drop it at the dealership. I hope no other damage has been done from me driving it, but it has been running fine and the service manager said it was okay to drive.
We're supposed to make a Big Bear trip next weekend to look at more property, she better be repaired and running perfect by Thursday.

|Ditchdoc||If snow falls good on Saturday I'm taking the kids to crab flats on Sunday. Bringing sleds and stove for chocolate. Crazy driving, just play in the snow if it falls.|

I'm gonna pitch this to the wife and see what she says. She hates the cold though so it's iffy.
|12-06-2013 12:13 PM|
Yes..Slo Mo, Aftahour and I will be going up to Crab Flats and ? tomorrow morning. Supposed to be 2-4" of new snow up there. Meeting @ 8am at the 210 and Baseline it's the exit before the 330. Go West on Baseline to the gas station and StarBucks.

I've stayed at all three cabins out by Striped Butt past Barkers ranch (Manson's hide out)up Golar wash and liked the Geologists cabin the best....has a great view of the Butt and the valley...
Rita's cabin up Pleasant canyon out of Ballarat in the Panamints is also a good stay.
If you like to hike...then any of the cabins up Surprise canyon at Panamint city are a good stay.
Last I heard they had running water too...
Hope this will give you some ideas.

|jeff_in_rc||Yes they are free but I only know of 1 with the flag system. Briggs IIRC, maybe even the Klondike?|
|12-04-2013 06:25 PM|
|Ditchdoc||Anybody been to any of the cabins in Death Valley? Are they still free? Do they still use the flag up leave me alone system?|

|PucktheXJguy||I am going for what is easier for me to install o my own, i plan on running 37's and i know TJ D44's can hold up with the proper parts installed. If you don't want to help locate one, thats ok, i'll just do reserch myself. Thanks for the ideas, but i am set on how i want to build my Jeep.|
|12-04-2013 05:45 PM|
Meh. Junkyard 44 or HP30 IMO.. I run Rubi 44s and I wouldnt consider the front a worthwhile swap.
