Car repair.

Had to put the old Jeep in the shop the other day. It was making a nasty knocking sound. I got lucky and my new neighbors suggest a place down the street. He said they are very good, but a little higher that the average place. Good part, they only fix what you ask them to fix. So, you do not get any extra charges.

Got my Jeep back last night and the knocking sound is gone. The cost was $220. Labor in that number was only $70. My front link Pins and and my stabilizer link pins were cracked.

They are great people, so give them a try.

Jeep Wave

I have always wondered why people in other Jeeps wave at me. Yes, I have a Jeep Wrangler, but does that mean I have to wave? What if I opt not to waive. Will I get chased down like Tony Roy did when he had his Jeep for not waiving back?

Well, I did a search on Google and found Jeep Talk, which has the definition of the Jeep Wave, the General Rules, and Jeep Waving hierarchy. Who would have thought that someone had this much time to come up with rules for waiving at another Jeep.

Based on the rules, someone with a higher score does not have to waive back to someone with a lower score.

Wet Jeep

There is only one negative to owning a Jeep Wrangler in Memphis, TN in the summer and that is scattered showers. If you live in Memphis, you know what I am taking about. It could be raining in your front yard but not in your back yard. Yesterday was great Jeep with the top down weather. The temperature was in the upper 90’s and the sun was blasting. Well, I should have know from the weather forecast and Memphis weather history to be on my toes and expect what was to happen next.

I walked into Lowe’s to get some supplies and while I was paying I could hear the rain on the warehouse roof. Luckily, there was not one behind me in line so I told the clerk to hold on one second while I go put my top up. I ran outside and you would have thought that there was a tornado out there from the rain and wind. I got the top up and walked into Lowe’s soaking wet and finished paying. I then ran my supplies to the Jeep as it was still pouring down. Started up the Jeep and drove down the road and the rain stopped completely. The rain only lasted 5-10 minutes, but I drove away soaked. Good thing is that it was a warm day and my Jeep was able to dry out quickly.
