    We met last time at Stark Street Pizza on Stark and about 79th. Pretty close to I-205 for ease of finding and traveling. Need to ask chevyfumes if he is up for it...........and Aaron............anyone else? Still don't know if I'll be in town.

    Re: NW CK5\'er Mandatory,LOL

    Okay this sucks...
    I might not be going up there[​IMG]
    My Jeep Cherokee decided to do it's version of Old Faithful!!!

    I tried to go wheeling in the snow. By the time we all aired down, my jeep had already blew up. The XJ's don't have a radiator cap, they have a pressurised overflow tank. So after we bi-passed the bottle it quickly got hot again. So we wired the aux. electric fan to be on with the lights. This got me about another 1/2 mile father. And it quickly pegged out on the temp gauge....like way past 260*. So we stopped right there and built our fire and plinked off a few rounds from my freinds 22, not at the Jeep but at other targets,LOL. After it sat all day we tried to limp it home, only to stop 10 mintues later cuase it quickly pegged out again. This time we pulled the thermastat and added water and were able to make it all the way home. So, tomorrow I have to go to the dealer and get a new bottle. You're probably thinking" THE DEALER, YOU CRAZY??" no I'm not, it's just that was the problem with the old one, it was cracked all the way around the bottle it just finally got hot enough to split out the side. So I'm hoping the new one will make it 143,000 milkes like the last one. Oh I also won a auction on ebay for the right radiator design to allow for a radiator cap. If the thing runs I'm coming up if not, it may be awhile.

    and again, most of us don't understand the Jeep thing [​IMG]. Really though man, that sucks! If I were able to get off work Tuesday, I'd drive down from Tacoma and have lunch. I can't though... damn work...[​IMG]

    Where did all these damned dirty apes come from!?!

    Well it was between that or a s-10 blazer...
    Jeep is a straight axle
    Jeep has more power
    and the Jeep was cheaper.
    But the Chevy's atleast have a radiator cap,LOL.
