Jeep People are top notch

3AM Sunday the Front axle CV joint goes out on my ZJ on our way back from Florida. We're about 20 minutes south of Columbia SC, or 2 hours south of Charlotte. Sounds like the whole axle is gonna explode. 5AM I wake Bill Carver (wbcarver) up with a phone call, Hey, that's almost sleeping in time for Bill. We discuss it, and at the time can't figure it out. I limp down the road to see if I can get any more clues as to what it is. While Bill searches the internet about my Jeep trying to figure it out from my descriptions. Bill goes to the Carolina Jeepsters board and in no time finds me a local solution.

I call Bill back at 8am, I think by 8:30-8:45, My ZJ is strapped on a flat bed trailer, my family is tucked comfortably in a Crew Cab F-250 Diesel and we're on the road to Charlotte. All this offered up by a Guy I never met before in my life!!! But he takes time out of his Sunday to pick us up, drive us to Charlotte where i just happen to have my Dad's '93 ZJ sitting at Carolina Rock Shop awaiting some bumpers to be made for it. he then turns around and drives 2 hours back to Columbia, SC. and all he'd accept was a tank of fuel. Did I mention i never met the guy before! That's a class act!

One thing I can tell you, my wife will never piss and moan about my Jeep habits and friends again.. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
