Today Russ is checking out the Thing to find out what was wrong. He thinks he has an idea. He calls the dealer and they give him the phone number for TJ Sports in El Paso. Russ talks to Chad and they discuss what is wrong. Now back to the dealer to have warranty parts sent.
In about 3-4 days the parts came. Russ installed them and we are back in business.
Ride number two was just out of town on dirt roads heading east towards El Paso. Found a little spot to check out the climbing abilities but the ground was too soft. Back on the dirt road and headed back home. Yes you guessed it. It just flat out died about four blocks from home. I called dad to bring rope so we can tow it. Yes Russ was in the thing and dad and I were in the car. We get it back home and push it under the awning.
