  1. Check out the short dash cam video in the link below. https://www.thedrive.com/news/41371/watch-a-jeep-grand-cherokee-get-kod-by-lightning-in-terrifying-video I don’t think I’d want to try and tackle that electrical repair. You can see the brake lights fade out as it coasts to a stop.
  2. While we are on the wildfire subject, yesterday, June 30, was the 8th anniversary of the Granite Mountain Hotshots tragedy near Yarnell. RIP boys.
  3. Cue the Beverly Hillbilly’s theme song.
  4. @shellback The Mopar parts link you provided is a good place to deal. It is a Larry Miller affiliated company. I’ve had some luck getting one of their Mopar family dealers to honor the online price, pick it up at the dealer, and avoid the shipping charges. YMMV

    Amen!!! Anybody that thinks fireworks are a good idea with the wildfire danger we have is nuts!
  6. Now that you chased the mechanical gremlin all over your Jeep before it jumped off let’s just hope it doesn’t end up on B’s Jeep. The gremlins are never really gone. They are just hanging around waiting. Seriously, nice work. And before the heat index goes nuclear.
  7. Thank you so much Kris for looking into this! I’m up at the canyon and am just now able to get online. I have two (I think) code numbers that I asked politely (forced) the dealer to give me before I would take delivery of my truck. One number I’m sure is correct. I used it to have a couple conventional keys cut to use in case of a lock out. I will look into pulling my Programing PIN and compare it to what I already have. It must be worth something because getting the dealer to give the numbers to me was like pulling teeth. Thanks for the RAM forum link I’ll check it out.
  8. Nice write up as always Kris. Question: Will the Alf OBD App. Program aftermarket key fobs? I asking specifically about a 2017 RAM and I’m computer illiterate.
  9. Off Roaders look like the good guys for a change! https://www.thedrive.com/news/40873/off-road-recovery-facebook-groups-help-find-5-year-old-missing-in-mojave-desert to all who volunteered their time
  10. We used “rattlesnake ready” for our dog this spring. https://rattlesnakeready.com I was pleased with the trainer. It is however difficult to tell how well the dog will respond out of the course. I did try to walk our dog near a fresh road kill rattler that was dead in the gutter near our house. He is normally very observant and will check out anything that seems out of place. He did not want to get anywhere near the dead snake. Cant be sure if it was because of the training but I’d like to think so. Not familiar with Danger noodles. Rattlesnake ready does use a shock collar only as required
  11. Sycamore Canyon is also listed in this book I have. I’d be happy to loan it to you or copy the 2 pages or...... Ive found the driving directions for in the book to be somewhat outdated for a couple of the hikes, but the trail info is usually very accurate Just let me know
  12. Good plan. Many of the forts we hiked to in the Tonto required at least some pretty tough bushwhacking. We did our hikes between Dec. and late March mostly to lessen the chance of a rattlesnake encounter. I don’t know what the brush is like there but I do my bushwhacking in long pants and keep a pair of gloves handy. I also always carry hiking poles and make good use of them at least coming back down. Those look like some great ruins! I hope you get to see them up close.
  13. Ryan, You found a good site for AZ ruins. From the home page on that site I used #6 extensively a couple years ago when a friend and I were searching for hilltop forts in the area north of Phoenix. We visited the 4 that were talked about on the site as well as 4 others. Do you plan to hike to the Sycamore Canyon ruins?
