    The Jeep wave...

    When the top is off or the window open, I extend my hand out at an angle below the mirror. I figure it kind of differentiates from a high five typical wave. When closed in I wave over the steering wheel, pretty much like any other wave. I get mixed results with Wranglers the most likely to...

    The Jeep wave...

    I don't think I've gotten a wave or even been flipped off by a 4 door Wrangler. Usually even the unmodified 2 doors don't know...the ones with the rusty factory issue wheels. I figure a 4 door would be a waste. The back seat has been in the barn under a tarp since I bought the 98...

    Jeep on a ledge

    I just remembered digitally altering a shot of my Jeep. This was before I cropped out the one at the bottom (the actual position). This was a pile of pea gravel, which was like trying to climb a pile of marbles. Since it's where I work and didn't want to explain what I was doing stuck there...

    Double trouble

    This is a Photoshop way of getting to the top. This is a pile of pea gravel and trying to climb it was like trying to climb a pile of marbles. So I used the computer to get to the top.

    Jeep on a ledge

    I've done a fair amount of Photoshop and this wouldn't be all that difficult to do. As a matter of fact, that was my first thought upon seeing it. I still wouldn't care to walk there to get the ledge shot. But then there are climbers that would see this as a Walmart parking lot.

    Jeep on a ledge

    Any more I'd be hard pressed to even walk on it.

    Is the Jeep wave dying?

    I like XT's bumper sticker: "It's a Jeep thing, WAVE!". It's a much more inviting statement than "you wouldn't understand".

    Best way to syphon gas?

    That's why I keep my truck. It ensures I can bring the boat to a stop in one piece...and it can pull the Jeep out when I get carried away in the mud.

    Yeah, and what do you do if someone comes from the other way?:D

    Front yard fun

    This was the first major snow (14") since I got this Jeep last spring. I drove around the yard and surrounding farm fields. Got stuck in drifts a couple of times for the "fun" of it.

    Northern Illinois. I have to plow snow as part of my job, so I do get rather feed up with it. But I am looking forward to getting the TJ out in it. Had a YJ with basically street tires and it did great. I've got some aggressive all terrains, on this one so it should be awesome.

    Tires Choices

    I just got a set of Cooper S/T 31 10.5 15. Partly because there was a buy 4 for the price of 3, plus a $75 rebate. They have a 50,000 mi warranty and I got the road hazard protection. I'm hoping they're a good all around tire. They're not too noisy either. Cooper makes an STT which is more...

    front axle U joints

    One added note. If heating the axle yokes, remove the rubber dust flange near the outer end of the shaft. I thought it was metal, until it became a black molten mass. Not a big deal, but now I have to wait for a replacement part.

    front axle U joints

    Yes, those were part of the fun of getting things unstuck. Along with the new U joints, I picked up a Haynes repair book for Jeeps. Without it, I probably would have missed that part. It didn't really get into dealing with badly rust welded parts though. They do mention wheel bearing grease...

    front axle U joints

    Thanks! I figured that might work, I just didn't want to mess up the axles with too much heat. But I guess they aren't much good with the bad U joints either.
