Alternatively, you can get one of these...



...for snowy days.  It even seems to have knobby tires.  You can plug it in at work and save the cost of charging at home.

I’m not doing a trike, maybe outriggers for SAVaGe?

Understandable.  A sidecar would be better though.  You could take the dogs for a spin.

Too bad sidecars aren’t readily available. I would totally do it if I could pick one up for $2K or less.

It'll be far more impressive.

Kudos to 2WD Jeep today. It hauled my trailer around with snow blowers and furniture all day, and never actually got stuck. If I didn’t weld the rear end, I wouldn’t have been able to do anything today. Good tires and fancy driving help, of course.

It needs a few minor things. I had to borrow another BLOWER to actually BLOW around my house.

I did most of my driving as a teenager in a Ford Courier and that thing was great in the snow. Of course, you could get it sideways pretty easy if you wanted to:)

I flushed the brakes on Jeep today with the power flushing masheen. The rear bleeders were so clogged up with sludge that nothing would come out until I took the bleeder screws all the way out and shoved a pick in the holes. Now the rear brakes actually seem to do something.

Only fill up with liters. Then you'll use fewer gallons.

Exhaust pipes carry hot air just like furnace ducts. Duct tape!

Right now it’s a straight pipe out the engine

Maybe you can weld up a split manifold to get a more interesting sound from a straight six.  Generally, they just make a buzzing noise.

That’s a bit of a time/money/practicality issue right now. I’m just going to throw a new muffler on it to quiet it down.

Jeep is gonna roll with a cherry bomb that I found buried under some junk. Quiet muffler supposed to be here a Friday. Other than that, trans fluid&filter is changed. Now every fluid has been changed.

Changed out the rear end oil. After welding the spidey gears and driving a thousand miles, there was a lot of metallurgy going on. A couple quarts of fresh, synthetic 75w-90 should make a few more horses powers and mpgeez.

The good news is that removing the downstream oxygen sensor device has triggered the check engine light, so now there is some nice orange interior mood lighting. If I want it to be a little more romantic, I just pull the handbrake up one click to add some red.
