I just completed installing my 4th headlight wiring harness. this one was on my son's 92. I also upgraded the battery cables. when I went to start it, nada. The problem turned out to be the starter, So I got a little practice in replacing a starter.

it was 18 degrees where I live but still when it's -2 you dont wanna work on the jeep do ya?
anyhow today I had the wifey ask if she could take the coveted XJ to work cause of the snow an whopping 4 inches and I will say its dangerous for texans to drive in the snow cause TX DOT doesnt take the neccesary measures to ensure safety on the roads for motorists like sanding in a timely manner they wait til the snow is THERE THEN they hit the roads...idiots anyhow I opted to get my butt out of bed and drive her myself as I wanted a day to play in the snow before we move to houston where they dont get snow but once every few years.
Ill post pics of the snow and my jeep later.

FYI just cause your area has lots of snow doesnt mean its always SOO much colder
I lived in tahoe area for years but It STILL gets colder here before snow sticks I guess it has to do with the lattitude cause tahoe is closer to the beach than dallas is by about two hours
AND also TRUST me I have seen cold try going through basic training in new jersey during a blizzard we had wind chills at 40 below... that means I was able to SPIT and it froze and bounced on the ground...

I lived in houston and never got that hot matter of fact Im moving there next week. I have come to realize you cannot trust XJ thermometers cause they always read hot mine was registering 50 degrees this morning when I took this picture

It hasn't been over 120 degrees in Houston since the meteor struck in the Gulf of Mexico 65 million years ago.

That's a phony car temp reading. I'm sure the thermometer thought it was 122.

I've noticed on my thermometer that if I am traveling at highway speeds it shows the correct temp, but just sitting there at an idle it will climb, and yes in the summer sitting at an idle I have seen mine reach 122 when its really only around 95-100 outside.

I have also seen mine reach -29

no THAT specific pic was taken this past summer in death valley california... I can attest that was the true heat of the day, street surface temperature registered at 167 degrees... melted tar and asphalt stuck to our rockers for weeks eventually had to use goo gone to remove it all.
