I did go to the dunes on Saturday. Drove the jeep the 130 miles there. Zero concerns @80mph.

I drove for about 15 minutes when we first got there, then I let my passenger take the wheel the rest of the day. She'd been going for 15 yrs and never ounce drove on the dunes.

Still fighting with high coolant Temps. But it's manageable. Hit up the Hansen foods on our way out for some Collin brats, then stopped at brown bear for dinner, and cruised the 130 miles home @ 80 again. It was a good day.

How many people waved at you? The only part of driving that thing that aggravated me Trying to watch a computer screen with every rubbernecker on the road swerving toward you gets annoying

Got the new trans cooler installed. Hopefully it works.

Also verified my timing. It's 2-3 degrees off. So that's good to know so I can adjust that in the tune.

Got back out Saturday with Kyle, AL, Terry and Jordan. I had a short day, needed to leave at 3 for a wedding reception. Original plan was to drive Als and mine to R&v, but als was to unstable at speed so we decided to trailer it and I'd leave on my own and he would take the truck and trailer. Met up with the guys and due to a complication, I ended up unloading my jeep in Howard City and we loaded Kyles B2 in its place, so I drove to r&v.

I wheeled for a couple hrs kinda taking it easy, and headed out at 3 for prior obligations. I took all back roads home from r&v to greenville then to my house. I was pleasantly surprised how well my jeep did on fuel. Def gets better mpg on back roads then highway at 80 mph.

Fresh from "almost loonie" 2019

Great weekend in a great place with great friends.

I only drove the first few hours, let my buddies drive me around the rest of the time. I'd get out at obstacles and walk as I didn't wanna chance any impacts to my low back.

Met some friends down to the badlands in Attica a couple weeks ago. Great time. Managed to bend another upper ball joint. Guess it's time to add that to the winter projects on the Jeep. Gonna have to get some bigger elminators.

The same climb/obstacle I bent the ball joint on, cut the sidewall on a mtrk a couple yrs ago.
