    Yes but I'm not sure if I'd be allowed to drive it as I'd be in the 'Crazy House' :crazylick:

    Well, at least your 10,000 isn't becoming a 20,000 jeep. I'd much prefer the 750 starting price!

    When you start at the bottom, there's no where else to go but up, right? :)

    Yep, two weeks ago it was 38* C on the trails and I had to keep the rpms up to prevent overheating with the ac on. If I shut the jeep down it would peg the temp gauge and stumble like crazy for a bit from the heat soak. Even when left alone for half an hour at lunch. I also found some split loom after that crumbled to the touch by the front of the fuel rail. Found more by the back of the oil pan on the drivers side that had actually melted away. Getting the hood louvers painted and installed just moved up the priority list, along with some heat rap for the wires.

    Absolutely. We would all have more money, and more responsibility, and more joy

    I just bought a TJ last week, and that was one of the first question the insurance company asked. (If it had daytime driving lights).

    New seats did nothing for the TJs speed/power, but I can drive longer now.

    Which did you go with? Mine are getting a bit crunchy feeling from so many hours of supporting my sizeable ass.

    Don't worry Squatch, you're doing great! Plenty of us others have the 10k to 20k process covered :(
