Wrangler’s back

Got the Wrangler back with a new clutch assembly today. Not bad – 137,800Kms on one clutch, with lots of heavy offroading use.

It’s due another service on 1,000Kms and it looks like I’ll need a new water pump, two new engine mounts and possibly a fix to stop coolant leaking from somewhere. That’s going to be another 2,000Dhs or so.

Still, it’s definitely worth keeping it running for now. I’m hoping these fixes will mean another couple of years of trouble (and cost) free driving. It’s been a while since I did anything other than service the Wrangler, so I suppose I should be grateful. As long as it doesn’t leave me stranded, it still makes sense to pay for servicing and the odd fix, as opposed to buying a newer car, something I can’t afford to do right now. Plus, I don’t want to swap this Wrangler for a newer one – more comfy, but this one is clearly a better desert performer.
