Flooding is an issue with a levee bank on a neighbor's place needing work.
Those with wetlands & swamps are happy as they are not so flooded. No big deal.
When I have water over drive, only 10" at worst, no one comes down drive complaining about the runoff from my place.

Slow progress with the jeep, WW is helping with good information! No ground on the MAP is current problem. I hope I dont need to send the ECM out for work.
At least yours is only mechanical now!

Just saw a couple videos about land slides on steep mountains with heavy rains. Hope you're not near any steep slopes, but it may be a way to fill in the low spots.

I'm still waiting on parts to ship for my beast. They're expected to go out on the 25th. I'm starting to look around for an alternative source in case my suspicions come to fruition.

The landslides are in the high country, about 2 1/2 hrs from me.
Not the first time. Have had landslides following bad fires in the past.
The vegetation holds the hillsides together.
It has cut off some great camping places.

I just sent a message to an ebay seller about some things I am purchasing.
Been over 2 weeks since I ordered & paid yet has not been posted.
Normally the EU is fine, will wait & see what reply I get.

I am never buying from JEGS.com again. Their parts prices are fine, but their shipping is ridiculously expensive. I purchased 3 parts on Oct 30.

Front axle bearing: $12.99 FedEx Priority $49.34
Front axle shaft: $89.99 FedEx Priority $56.94 -- Not yet shipped
Front axle seal: $7.99 FedEx Priority $34.35

Crown Automotive is crap.
Dean.

JEGS' supplier (Crown Automotive) first said they'd ship on Nov 11, then on Nov 25, now they're saying Dec 8. Several resellers are offering the same Crown Automotive front right side Intermediate drive shaft for $85 to $105, but none have it, and all say it will ship from the manufacturer. Other resellers are offering the same part (Mopar) for $250 to $285, but I just don't want to pay that much. So I put the beast together today with the old, sloppy intermediate shaft and the new bearing made a difference. Problem is there is still a clunk in the right drive line.

Unfortunately I put the wrong new CV half shaft in which I think is the source of the clunk. I do have another new one that I'll have to put in soon. The beast is drive able as long as I listen to the clunking.

Getting this far, I treated myself to a cigar and a glass of Spiced Rum. Amazing how that makes a soul feel better.

Next week I'll swap the half shaft and hopefully be completely on the way.
