Oh, I got an idea. Take my trailer, cut off the tongue, shorten it so that it slides into the reciever hitch just behind the spare, thus creating a TJ-XL, or TJ- Six by Six! Think that would work?

Can we put a second engine in the trailer and make a power assist?

Lol! Quite the contraption brah! function over form? Lol!
We shall see about the function! It may work as well as it looks.

It's one tool for similar jobs. Using the same gauge for both draining and filling will satisfy a couple curiosities I have.

Are you finding a inaccuracy between gauges, or is your OCD on overtime, lol!

I'll be in Phoenix through Wednesday with some time to kill. Any recommendations for things to see? Museums, historic sites, interesting things?

When we visited Phoenix for a Nascar race, the Casa Grande Ruins was cool.
Pueblo ruins are right up my alley. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with the light rail and Uber. I wish I was driving the Jeep down instead of flying.

Incidentally, I have noticed a clunk coming from the rear driver's side. After rocking the Jeep side to side, I finally figured out that the spherical joints in the rear Foxes shocks are worn. I ordered a set of four replacements from Kartek so I can replace everything.

Do you like to hike? If so, I recommend hiking Camelback Mountain for a nice view of the city. There are two trails to the top: Cholla Trail and Echo Canyon Trail. Cholla is a bit longer but is also less strenuous. Echo Canyon requires a bit of bouldering. Either way, take plenty of water!

Plenty of craft breweries in the area. One with fairly easy access from the light rail is Four Peaks in Tempe.

What part of town are you staying in?
