It’s my daily, but 10 MPG is ruining me.
True in many, many ways.
Haven’t had a chance yet, no.
You’re doing it right.
Agreed. Though even a 5k discount wouldn’t do it for me.
Eh, not a fan of the SBC swap; it deserves a Jeep engine. Also agree with others that the huge lift and tires kinda detracts from the Wagoneer’s epic stance.
One quote I forgot to include of Ben’s: “It’s a deathtrap.”
He’s got a pretty good idea of what he’s getting himself into.
Smaller tires don’t necessarily mean a smaller contact patch if you keep the tire pressure the same. It’s the shape of the contact patch that changes.
Definitely say hello next time.
Glad I’m not the only one here using ride-sharing services as roadside assistance.
Nothing actually “hit” the bottom of my tank other than the float, and my tank is plastic, so there’d better not be any rust in there.
But yeah, I swapped it anyway.
Also a relevant point^
No ticket, thank goodness.
I need that to top off my leaky trans! I’ve got a whole gallon of ATF in my cargo area.
They haven’t been particularly quick for me either, but that’s only when I needed a tow. With a can of gas, perhaps they’d be quicker, especially in the heart of metro Detroit.
I just wanted to get off the shoulder asap, tbh. I don’t like hanging out on the shoulder of a major highway. And also, I was curious to see…
Everything is JUST FINE over here. Just fine.
I’ve got it totally under control.
Except yesterday I noticed that my daily driver, the Wagoneer, mysteriously developed a misfire. But again, it’s FINE!
Retrospectively, perhaps AAA would have been quicker with a can of fuel. I’m honestly not sure. I wanted to minimize the time I spent waiting on the shoulder, and the Lyft came in about 10 minutes.
Hmm. Not sure why I wrote “three hours,” as the whole thing took about one hour (fixed that in the story). And that was the whole point; using Lyft was relatively quick.
There is no trip on the Waggy...
But yeah, there’s really no excuse other than: I was unwise.
