Let's all remind each other about some things we need to do make sure our Jeeps are ready for winter. I'll start it off.

Check your coolant/anti-freeze...One of those little testers with the balls in it is inexpensive and available at your local auto parts store. Make sure your coolant will protect from feezing in the area you live in.

Hmmm, don't have to worry about that much out here in the desert.

But also don't you all usually use a lighter weight oil in the winters also?

5w30 winter 10w30 summer usually works pretty good. I think 10w30 works pretty well all year unless your in a very cold climate.

More advice. Make sure to keep a flask of your favorite Tennessee sour mash hid under the seat.

and another one in the tool drawer. It will ease your pain as you're freezing and reaching for the wrenches to fix the latest trail modification.

or you need to bury someone.....errr.....get stuck in mud.
Man with the little camp shovel that I carry in the rig it would take me forever to bury someone. :( That's why you always make them dig the hole themselves because I would get bored with it. :D
