Well, “Project Cherokee” is officially on the road. While it remains a piece of crap it is now a legal piece of crap with two new tires on the back. The original front tires were HORRIBLE – dry rot, smooth tread that screamed the need to slide across water, and constantly going flat. I threw a couple of Goodyear Wrangler Radials on it for $195. Not bad. Had a neighbor give me a brand new battery for it. So far it is working though it is slightly underpowered when it comes to CCA.
I tested the 4×4 and it is working as I expected. Since the Cherokee sat for a couple years+ you never know. Preevious owner installed a brand new transfer case about a year before he parked it. Should last. Keeping up with oil usage as well as water. Oil pressure is running high. Thinking of trying a “MMO Clean Out”. Basically, drain the oil down two quarts – and replace it with Marvel Mystery Oil. Run it for a couple days then do a complete oil change. Sludge and “crap” should break free with the lower viscosity. At least that’s the plan.

There is a case in California where a man went on a killing spree using an AR-15 he built. It is being reported that this was based on an 80% lower and used to skirt around the law as he was not allowed to own firearms. Those of us who have bought 80% lowers – I can see a time in the not too distant future when they will no longer be available. No link as I do not want to improve their Google rank.
Could be wrong.
