    Re: 9:00 am Group - 20th Annual Crown King Run - Aug 25 2018

    Hey all, this is the guy with the black TJ. I made it home ok, had to replace the radiator on the trail. It seems the idiot mechanic who put in the radiator (Me), either didn't tighten or left off the bolts holding the bottom of the radiator down. Going up that first obstacle, it swung back into the fan, which chewed a number of holes in it. Fortunately, I stopped in a spot with at least intermittent cell coverage and was able to get in touch with my wife, who brought me a new radiator. Which I now need to mount properly as it's pretty much zip tied in place so I could get off the mountain before the thunderstorms really hit.

    Thanks to all who stopped and offered assistance, it was appreciated!

    I was wondering how your repair went. Good to hear you and your Jeep made it home.

    Really should have collected a beer from everyone who offered. Of course, then I'd never have been able to fix it to get down the hill

    Turned out to be related to the D@mn power seats. Comes along with owning a ZJ i guess. Pulled the Circuit breaker for the seats and got Gauges, AC and windows back. I found out I could lower the seat to get more head room, very close to when we swapped batteries. Motor is jerky. Funny thing is that the seats only work when every thing else did. Very weird. Only after 2 trips to the JY/PnP and trying the BCM, Drivers window lock panel and PDC relays.
