    Merry Christmas everybody!
  2. It was on Browns Dock near the parking lot. It was entertaining to watch the cars try to go around the bad spots. The Jeep did stall out several times on the paved part of Cooper after it initially died on McClees.
  3. I finally got the hardtop on. I used the cargo strap method like I usually do. I’ve decided I’m getting too old for the cargo strap method, so I’ll be in the market for one of those fancy pulley lifts next spring. My son and I went for a ride around the neighborhood. Our usual route takes us through a small local park with a dirt road. The road was all rutted out for some reason and much rougher than normal. Theo had a great time, so I was heading around the block to do it again when the Jeep died. I was able to get it started again but it would crap out again every few hundred feet. I’m pretty sure the issue is a loose belt, but I haven’t looked into it too deeply. I was just happy to make it home!

    Good morning! I’m going to come down tomorrow. I was originally going to register, but I dragged my feet and missed it. Since I wasn’t registered I didn’t get my hard top on or do any maintenance so I’ll be rockin’ my minivan in the spectator lot.

    What is the status of the trail ride on Sunday? If it’s still happening, when and where are we meeting up?

    I am going to try my best to get to the ride on Sunday, but a lot will depend on the weather and the condition of the Jeep. The squirrels will have Dan’s campsite all set up for him when he arrives

    I have no experience with the Quadratop, but with the Trektop the fabric was a sealed pocket with open sides and you slid the black bar inside it left to right.
  8. Yesterday I got the hardtop off and put a bed rug in. I drove it to the ferry today, I’m looking forward to some nice days this summer!

    I got my my one tire installed and took her for a drive on Saturday, she's a lot of fun to drive, but there are some squeaks and noises I need to track down. My plan had been to do 2 tires and I got the second one off but I couldn't fit 2 in my stupid car. I'll try to get them loaded into the Jeep this weekend and mounted,

    I went to drive the Jeep this weekend and she was sitting in the garage with a flat tire... of course I don't have a spare, so I yanked the tire and it's sitting in the trunk of my car. Hopefully they can patch it and I can take her out next weekend.
  15. Being so close to Halloween makes it tough to get away, there's always a lot of family things going on that time of year.

    That thing is badass, who makes it?
  17. Changed the oil. I was going to do the transmission and transfer case, but UPS screwed up my order, so that will have to be a project for next weekend.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone is adequately stuffed.
