Paul Walker’s Car Collection

Filmed in 2012, the production crew at The Smoking Tire said they originally respected the privacy of who owned this classic collection of cars. “As we filmed this over a year ago, it makes no sense now not to say the cars all belongs to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas,” their youtube page states.

How to Detail a Jeep Engine

After an epic trip to Big Bend. I have a little bit of maintenance to do on the Jeep. The interior and paint was first, now it’s time for the engine. The back country roads at Big Bend National Park were dry and dusty. That left the a fine white coat of dust on everything. […]

The Jeep is Back!

For almost a week my dealership has been searching for the faulty wire that left my Jeep inoperable at Big Bend National Park. They finally found it and ordered a replacement harness. Since it’s not a part that is replaced often (or at all) it needed to come from Michigan, which took some time. Amazon can […]

A little Love from Poison Spyder

The other day I hit up a few Jeep forums and ran across a couple of pictures of my Jeep. I was excited to see the Poison Spyder stamp of approval in the lower right corner. If you’re in the market for top-notch Jeep armor, check them out. They make great stuff.

Jeep Wrangler Hill Start Assist

I’ve found this feature kind of handy. It doesn’t seem to have much to do with the clutch, more with the brakes. When the Jeep is completely stopped on an incline the hill hold assist prevents the Jeep from rolling backwards. I’ve been driving a stick for a long time. I didn’t even know my […]

Jeep Snow Day Shenanigans

My Mom saw my journal entry, Mall Crawling in the Snow, the other day and was giving me grief. Her comment was, “couldn’t you just take pictures on a hill or climbing something?” It sucks to get called out by your mom. So, here it is, my snow redemption shots. As peers and co-workers left […]

Blue Icicle

It didn’t get above 20 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday. My Jeep sat for 7 hours outside. When I left my office I found a few dips on the snow and a rather large blue icicle under it. I think it’s a slow drip from the windshield wiper fluid overflow vent. It’s odd because the windshield washer […]

Mall Crawling in the Snow

Just a few poser shots in the snow. We have 4-6 inches of snow so far. It’s still coming down. It’s time for some snow wheeling!
