      • Hey Aaron, pardon me for asking a stupid question but I need some help with Jeep etiquette.

        Not sure if this in gene pool, socioeconomic, geographical or ????? related

        Why does it seem to be a requirement for the driver to hang his left leg and foot outside the body while driving down the street?

          if you had as great of legs as we do, you'd hang it out there too.

          you're welcome

            • back to this
              I have no idea what's leaking..... dried it off, hopefully it'll start dripping again tonight


              not from the usual seals


              I wonder if this was my squeak...



              hopefully I can get this apart enough to order parts and get this done... to recap, I'm putting an NV4500 in

              • other then leaky, there's nothing wrong with it

                so glue it and put it back together.


                my plan is still the NV4500, but I have several things that need to be done now and this is drivable and useable. I do need to figure out where I put (for safety) the tuning computer... but outside of that.... time to use it again.

                  • I was so afraid I'd have to get rid of Luigi if he didn't match my '40.... thankfully, it's a perfect match

                      • Time to fix an issue. If you turn the flow off to the heater, the truck will overheat. The fix is a bypass that opens when the heater valve is closed

                        the lines

                        installed.... probably should have got the 5/8" line but this worked with a bit of heat

                        • to wash the terrible taste of working on my wife's Jeep out of my mouth.... I worked on this a bit too

                          • what is "some I'll probably never use on my '40"

                            answer



                            the 2" die, that is... but cool anyway

                            what I will use, though, battery tender



                            in that vein, did a bit of rearranging, didn't need double batteries anymore



                            I can use them in the Jeep for the new setup, so I went with a single (which I may move to the front and add an accessory tank in the back to help with its abysmal range)



                            in the jeep



                            jeep is also useful for teaching dog to jump into a car because it's much shorter

                              • backstory. clock would not keep time, rear signals would be possessed and simply come on. The second reason was the impetus of what's next, but I fixed the other problem as well
                                wiring is not something I enjoy



                                why didn't I add 6" to that loom? smh... lurnin'



                                and reinstalled... and it works, now to reprogram
