Just hope it don't happen in the middle of nowhere and here in Nevada we have a bunch of nowhere. I should invest in satellite phone for some of the places I have been. I have even used a point and shoot thermometer and nothing is getting hot. More that usual. My other car is a 78 power wagon that gets 9 mpg. Can't afford to drive it and don't trust it anymore. Thanks for the help and any ideas.
If y'all are near Carson city, there was an old geezer at the last Jeep dealer on the right as you head south that was pretty pragmatic. Dunno if still there or even breathing...
I had torn a CV joint cover badly playing around near Silver Peak and stopped in.
They were busy but he took a look and said as long as it had a pretty good coating of lube, just drive it back to my own dealer and fix it when I had time--it wouldn't hurt anything.
The aluminum pumpkins on the axles seem to allow a lot of noise out that hurts nothing. If you don't want to be stranded somewhere out in the middle of Nowhere Nevada [just past Nowhere City Nevada] I'd suggest getting it looked at.
Front drive stuff can be dealt with by unhooking, but a wheel issue could be a lonnnnng walk.
And if you don't know when the steering stabilizer was replaced, replace it after looking up "death wobble"
