It's strange how so many people talk about their FSJ being a money pit or unreliable but this thing starts EVERY time, all the time and can be driven whenever ya want. Probably the most reliable vehicle I have owned in my 40 years of driving (since I was 15).
I am super happy with it's reliability and just wished it looked better.. Bodywork (if that's what ya wanna call it) will be finished soon and paint this summer. (soon as I figure out what the original color was. fairway green I think?)
I am running used tires bought a few years ago from one of the Mexican run tire stores in Phoenix. General Grabber ATX tires, I can't recommend enough. very good on road, GREAT in snow and great off-road.
There you go! That's what I am talking about! NOT A TURD! Work horse! Mine is turd because I messed with too much crap. 80% of my problems are self induced.
Good copy on the Grabbers. I'll be buying 5 new tires when I get home in May so I will keep them in mind.

Welds held. I think the shaft hit something on the peak of that hill to bend it, then once it was bent, I think it probably contacted something under my truck that twisted it off.

Thanks for the kind words! Don't be impressed, I am not that skilled. I'm just to stupid/stubborn to admit defeat. I am one step from being a hack (by many standards, I am a hack).
