We're home safe & sound. Grunt's Jeep wants to know where his Dad is.

Hey, come on now. What is a trip without a GRUNT's YJ break?

 

I would like Tom for yanking me out of the bowl, Ksmith for towing me home, Tom for helping Ksmith and I up the mountain and then George for towing me home!

 

I am 2 for 2 on the Cinders. I think I am going to keep the YJ down for the winter and do some mods, rewiring, cleaning. Perhaps once apart, the jeep gods will tell me that a driveline mod is in order. I will be using the XJ for the winter now.

 

Thanks for a wonderful trip ORP!!!

 

BTW - Picked up my jeep from G & D's. What a beautiful house! Very polite hosts, thanks for the beer and pulling my driveshaft before I even got there!

Sunday while exploring on the way to the River Lava Tube Number 7's fan motor started squeeking

And then it ceased

George had pre-fabbed our old motor to fit the new shroud

Luckily the swap worked and Miss January and I got Number 7 home with no further trouble

When I got home we used Number 7's winch to get Grunt's Jeep off the trailer

Thanks goodness the brakes work fine even though the engine isn't running. I had a tire chalk handy just in case it got away from us, but his Jeep came down nice and slow.

 

 

Let me know if you want copies of any; I'd be happy to email to you or burn a disk.
