Please seek help, or trade in on a Willys jeep.
Not me - my wife. I've owned many Jeeps including a Willys. The Willys was modified to run a 289 Ford, 5:38 gearing, the whole works. I was the president of a 4WD club at the time I built up that Jeep.
A little history on the current Jeepâ€¦
My last Jeep was a 1997 four banger with no air. Didn't bother me at all but my wife hated it if we went out in the desert and ate the dust. She asked if I could put air in it to pressurize the cabin. I told her no. She suggested that I get a new Jeep. I knew what she meant but took her literally and ordered a new Jeep from the factory. It was a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with all the bells and whistles. It has since then become our main vehicle.
Since it is our main vehicle I try to keep the ventilation as dust free as possible. Nevada pin stripping comes along with taking it off road but my wife hates dust blowing in her face when the fan is turned on. That is her big concern about me taking it to Burningman this year. Iâ€™m hoping to minimize the dust by using recirculation while on the Playa. I also plan to cover the vent intake next to the windshield. After Burningman I plan to remove the top and let the fan run full force for a while hoping to clear out most of the dust.
The dust is such a concern with her that she is willing for me to rent an SUV to take to Burningman. I told her that for the cost of the rental and cleaning afterwards that I could get one hell of a detailing plus have money left over. Iâ€™m still working on the situation. Wish me luck.
You've heard of stubborn Dutchmen? My wife was born in Amsterdam!
