Not had that happen in my Jeeps (yet). But it happen with my old VW van (it was the left rear also, very strange) many years ago on the Ventura Freeway while going to work. Hell of a shock seeing it roll past you, just hoping it does not hit some other car. Luckily it did not.

Ventura Freeway... Right around the corner from me. Probably a lot scarier in a VW van than a big heavy FSJ.

Funny related story: in the late 90's I was in the Navy in San Diego and was on my way home from work at 3am in the morning. Heading north on the 125 I watched a Nissan driving south on the 125 on 3 wheels, sparks flying. "What an idiot!" I thought as I watched him drive by. After I passed him, I looked forward and saw his missing wheel bounce over the center divider and slam into the side of my truck (I had my cruise set at 70mph and that tire was probably still doing 50'ish). I heard the bang of it hitting my truck, then I bounced up, swerved left, and the truck started thumping. I pulled over to see my cab dented, bed folded under, and my rear wheel taco'ed. Dude in the Nissan was unlicensed, uninsured, unregistered, and not supposed to be here. $1800 in 1997'ish dollars worth damage to my truck. I was super mad at the time. When Highway Patrol brought me over for my statement the Nissan driver was still there. I was ready to let him know how happy I was with him customizing my truck when I saw he had (what I assume is) his wife and 2 small kids with him. "Small" as in a baby and a baby that was almost a toddler. I then realized my truck will get fixed, and I was glad no one was hurt (especially those little kids).
**************************************
I don't touch my Cherk much these days. It is running well and I don't want to mess that up. I have been wrenching on my son's Ranger more. He had Homecoming last weekend and insisted on driving my Cherk. I was SUUUPER nervous I was gonna get a call that is was broken down somewhere but I didn't! Yeesssssss.....

(for the record he is making faces at my better half in this picture)

Dang.. wish you were closer. I have a nice set of 33 x 12.50 MT/Rs I am replacing with BFG A/Ts. We could work out a smoking deal.
Rims too.... I have a set of the original chrome wheels as well.

I too need that grill rubber isolator part.
Is there a part number of it we can order it?
BJs should carry it me thinks !

Cool your son loves the Jeep!

DANGIT!! I would love to buy those tires off you! Those would be PERFECT!!! I really like the raised white/Outline White letters. I think they look super classy on black rims like ours.

I am not sure if BJs has it and I am not sure where SOLSAKS got it. I wish I did, though.
************************************************** *********
Drove my truck the other day on an errand. Wincher asked for a video of my idle. I do think it sounds pretty mean.
Cold start up

My son's Ranger is running/driving at this point (plan to smog it today) so next task is to prep/sell our XJ. Then I will be back to Chief work.

The rubber trim for the grill could be some rubber trim like the old number plates had back in the day.

Rang a stang , that's a cool looking ranger you son has!
