Just a bit of info regarding the JK gas tank. On the way to SMORR, I thought I ran the tank close to dry. Nope. Tried again on the way back. Nope. Still had about an extra gallon left in the tank with the needle in this position.

Vice grips being put to work, great tool to have with you. Brake lines are always getting ripped out.

Still trying to figure out why they are clamped there ?

Looks to me like no brake line to passenger right rear and was intended to hold the line in place ?

They are pinching the brake line closed, so hes not losing any fluid, and still able to run.

I've done that a few times on trips and the computer says I'm out. At about 30 miles left the computer says something like, hey dummy you're out of gas, and yet I've always made it to the gas station.
