Jeffk1975 When it ruins your day to see 2 dime sized oil drops under it in the morning. Now I'd thinking about oil pan gasket and RMS all day long.

Medixtj01 When your happy you need new tires. Unlike most people who are unhappy when they need to look for them.

Also you have your next set of tires picked out when most don't care what tire they get.

Make sure it's not just the gas cap. I've had a few CELs after putting in a new tank of gas. Codes haven indicated misfires (specific cylinder or multiple). I took off the gas cap, put it back on and reset the CEL.... It hasn't come back. One time it also threw a code saying "evap monitor large leak detected" (P0455?).

HA! Yeah, I find myself thinking that. When I see a nicely modded Jeep, I just automatically assume they must be members here.

Went last year it was nice. Registered the day of the event. Trails were decent. Eye candy(Jeeps) central! Each year it changed based off weather. An easy course may turn into a hard due to rain.

I love owning a TJ simply for the fact that every day is an adventure; even if I'm just driving up to the local grocery store.

This is the first time I heard about JeepFest and sadly it looks like registration is closed Maybe next year; I really want to get out more and put my TJ and my wheeling abilities to the test. I've realized that a lot of learning is great when you find out for yourself, but it'd be great to find a group of guys and girls whom are all willing to teach and help one another.

Are you going to JeepFest in a couple weeks?

I've been wanting to get with some other Jeepers and go wheelin; I just need to get some more recovery gear. Ideally, I'd like a winch, SRC front and rear bumpers as well as some rock siders.

You know you drive a TJ when you want to bicker to yourself about having to step down into someone else's vehicle when you're so used to stepping up to get in.
tri the "step down" when the ol lady drives a pries

04madi_wrongler I've been without a jeep for a year.

So yes, I've been planning on the fleet of vehicles I will need, and exactly what I am going to do to my jeep.
And a coworker is selling his 53, and I can't pass that up.
I have a willys tattoo...
It's my dream "car"
Kind of an obsession..
