The jack stand effect?

Why in the heck do I see all of you other jeepers out there in full force with tops and doors off, the moment my shit goes up on jack stands?

I do the jeep wave thing but it is just not the same coming from some dude in an old German car or even the minivan.

If I want it to rain, I take my doors off.

Made me chuckle.

Mine has been on jack stands for a week with me wrenchin on it till 12:30 in the morning. Everything I've done has lead to something else. Finally finished last night. Leaving for a 9 hour drive to some coastal town in Southern N.C. for a weeks r&r.

Mine starts every time and purrs like a drunk bum on a park bench at 2:00 am, but it runs great.

Been driving the truck for a week waving at Jeeps and getting the fucktard stare.

Same here mine has been on jack stands for 3 weeks now it's damn hot to work on it during the day in desert so I have been getting up at 430 am to work on it. Sometimes I forget I am not in the jeep and wave to other jeepers. But just finished it this morning and it started right up!

eyup... I'm in the same boat as Marcus and the OP.

Put the rig on stands in the garage because I see the weather is going to be crap so it's a good time to pull maintenance. Forecast is wrong and the weather is great. Jeeps everywhere with doors/top off.

Get the jeep back together... now I have to charge the danged battery.

yup....

Not sure. I just drive, the wife navigates. We stopped in Rocky Mount NC for the night. The Jeep did great on the highway.

We always rent a house and the extended families all go. The woman pick the spot, find some houses and then we decide on a house. I don't really care where as long as it's warm, there's beach, fishing, booze and food. If there's somewhere close I can wheel the Jeep it's a bonus. When we get there I'll update.

Yup we're in Holden Beach. Any beach access near by? Anything I should know or do?

Jeep drove better than ever on the highway although it should after all the love I gave it.

I think you can take the Jeep on the beach at Fort Fisher State Recreation... Not sure how close that is to you...

Mine has been on jack stands since February. I literally ripped the front axle out of it wheeling it, so now its getting a 60/10.5 replacement. Just wasn't in a hurry to fix it.
