It’s bad when you look forward to going for groceries.

Look forward to going plant shopping today. :party:

That is awesome, Chad! Brings a big smile to my face! Me, I literally went 4 times to the supermarket yesterday to just get in my Jeep (not cross country like you). Once for meat, once for fish, once for sour cream... Man, this lockdown is something else...
Teaching Megan to drive and so far the only vehicle she is willing to drive is my Jeep. Think she is plotting to claim it for herself. She had already mentioned trading my Q5 for a 4 door Jeep so she always has a Jeep available.

While it looks like my long summer road trip with my daughter will need to be cancelled may still get a trip in. Wife is talking about driving back to Wisconsin for a 4th of July get together her family is looking at having.

The summer cancellation is kind of a bummer. If we would have been able to get it in Megan and I would have been to all the lower 48 in the past 4 years.

Maybe a late summer thing but I really see no reason why, with a little bit of work, that you should be able to pull it off. It will definitely take a little more planning.

Had hoped to do that but with the current environment I have gone form a semi absentee business owner to needing to be more involved with day to day operations. The trip we had planned was about 3 weeks, unless the economy really gets going in the next month it will be difficult to get away that long. Also, with the school year starting mid August the summer ends kind of early for the kiddo.

Wow! That really sucks. Its amazing how this virus affects everyone in every little thing. Hopefully, maybe it will work out for you and your daughter. Never had an opportunity like that with mine.

This would have been the 4th summer in a row doing this type of road trip with her. Looks like worst case we will end up finishing the Arizona trip we cut short over spring break either Thanksgiving week or over Xmas break.

Anyone deal with death wobble here on a stock JL? My JLR got it probably 6-7 times on the way back from miller jeep trail last night. All stock, 11,500 miles, recall done at purchase. There's a slight mark on my steering stabilizer where if you run your finger over it, it feels pushed in a tiny, tiny bit on the cylinder, no fluids leaking. If I apply back-and-forth twisting force on the trackbar and steering link here's the absolute slightest amount of give that has been there from day 1 and I've observed others have with the stock components. Shocks aren't visibly leaking and the Jeep drives butter smooth on the highway all the way up to 85mph up until I hit a bump.

Everything else seems tight from a solo crawl under the jeep. was running 33psi on stock KO2s with about 40% tread left. I don't know where to start with this and would honestly rather just fix it myself or with the help of a local Jeeper or shop than have it sitting around in the dealer for weeks and weeks.

Been having so much fun with the rig, finally something comes down the road to mix it up.

this thread die in a pile? Borla is using us as a mule and promised a quite tucked install that boosts performance a bit, was just wondering if there was a great interest or if they were any good? looks like a nice kit, all stainless. any input welcome. i have zero experience with exhaust since i did my old '93. this ones a cat back Ca legal set up. they call it the "touring crawler" for the 4 doors. in my day things were different that old 93 got headers, hi flow cats and hi flow mufflers. not sure a cat backs gonna do too much. but since my stock stuff is all beat up, why not?
