I had that look once in my 99 when I was in Florida. Made the mistake of listening to a buddy of mine saying he just went down the trail, so I can make it. He didn't tell me he was in his jacked up Ford on 44s! I ended up driving through it all, but the end result was water over the seat cushions in the front and rear seats. After getting back home me and the wife stripped out the seats and carpet, then took them up to the car was and cleaned them with the pressure washer. Set them out to dry for the rest of the weekend. I was actually surprised how clean it all ended up. All that and no damage to any of the electronics. (Thank God the radio is mounted a bit high on the Jeep.)

Thats what I did with mine. I already had two dead power windows so I junk yarded some manual ones (preferred them anyways). I pressure washed the carpet about 3 times. half of my speakers don't work now and I had to replace my plugs, wires, and IAC sensor. As you can see it runs great now.

I want one of these. Then I could just tell it to go down the trail on its own at Windrock while I cry in the corner.

Interesting system, that is for sure. Not what I want. No challenge if you don't drive your truck yourself. Really cool though.

Well, yeah, I was kidding about the Windrock part. Apparently they're being used to transport supplies without fear of IEDs hurting soldiers. I thought that was pretty awesome.

Not yet, I believe it is the second wire down on that connector. I've been thinking about cutting it, but just haven't gotten around to it. I'll probably go in with a pin puller and disconnect it from the clip and tape it off instead of cutting it.

I am considering getting new rims and going with either the 265/70/16 or 285/70/16. Basically 32 or 33 inch tires. Hard part is coming up with a good set for what I can afford. Looking at Treadwright tires right now. Seems like they have some really good deals, and Dave had them on his 2nd gen.

I think the 265/70/16 is closer to a 31" tire you would need to go with 265/75/16 for a 32 and 285/70/16 is 32 and 285/75/16 is 33.
