Rolled the Jeep in Calico

Well thanks to Mark and John and their extensive optimism. We managed to get the Jeep running 😁.

Re: Rolled the Jeep in Calico

After pulling about a quart of oil out of the intake, we got it running and Johnx's neighborhood should no longer have a mosquito problem.

It took a gallon of trans fluid today to make it move under it's own power.

Wow. I didn't even think about that. Let me know what kind you want to replace it with.

Rolled the Jeep in Calico

So my oldest wanted to go work on the Jeep today with me so we headed up to Johns this afternoon. I managed to get most of the rain water vacuumed out of the carpet. Then we set to removing the broken windshield. This is the one part my daughter really wanted to help do. So she at in the Jeep and pushed with her feet while I cut the windshield rubber/glue out from around it. Now that it's out the damage doesn't look so bad.

Pull the seats, drop the headliner and go to town with a floor jack and a 2x4.

Exactly. A Highlift, a comealong and a tree helps too

Re: Rolled the Jeep in Calico

Did you get that Jeep a nice tarp?

I swear it seems like it will never stop raining. I have a yard to landscape and I can't get it dried out enough to work on it. I better not hear anything about a drought this year.

Rolled the Jeep in Calico

So we got a little work in on the roof line before I brought it back down to HB it's a little more headroom but the passenger A pillar I think might be too far in to fix. Gonna have to play with it some more while I think of other options.

On another note however I did get to go pick up that '99 from AZ with the help of Mark (sidewaysstarion). We took JohnX trailer and drove out Saturday morning. Got back last night.
