Daniel, the Jeep issue maybe inside the ECM. GM had issues with wiper motors doing the same thing, ended up being a bad solder joint on 1 or 2 spot on circuit board. 

My Firebird had an issue with the BCM, the radio would go off/windows wouldn't work. Hit a bump and back on. I pulled BCM from under dash, re-solder a couple joint points, been fine every since. 

Wonder if Jeep had an issue like that?

Yes, Jeep ECM's had the same type issue, but I've taken the ECM apart as far as I care to and tested the usual areas of failure, and all were good.  So that means my issue is deeper inside it, in the motherboard area.

Daniel, when you have time, send me a PM about the Jeep. All pertinent info of the Jeep plus what you have done to it and what the issues are. I'll have Steve read it and see what he says. He has worked on several of these things and knows some of the issues they have! Like I said, When You Have Time!

No roofing the new shop again today....rain & windy.  Same for tomorrow.   We lost a cow last night.  She got in a bad position calving & she couldn't right herself, and they don't last long when they do that.  Her bull calf is fine at least.  There goes a solid $1,300, what she was worth for slaughter.

  Today I did get where the old metal pile was all cleaned up nice.  5 scoops of bits of glass, dirt, etc in my Massey's FEL bucket.  I also got the lower 2x4's nailed in that the inside metal will screw to down next to the concrete, plus got most of the framing done for the man door at the front.

  Raining heavy right now, so I'll wait a bit before doing the afternoon silage feeding.  Just issued a severe thunderstorm warning for my area too.

Just now finished the man door framing, and finished filling out 2x2's on the sides of the 16' door opening.  It's time to call it a day.  12 hours working with a painful shoulder/neck is enough.

Naw, the severe stuff broke up just a couple miles before it got here.  Nothing bad here.  More rain coming in, but nothing severe today expected.

  Likely start putting up the interior shop wall today being it's gonna be wet.

Been raining on & off all day, so started on the interior wall today.  Got the wall up, and 2 pieces of metal up.  This is the old faded red off the end of the original shed.  Doesn't matter what it looks like being it's on the inside.  Has some tears on edges & such from removing it.

The man door framing is ready.

No rain expected tomorrow, so hoping wind is light enough to allow some roof installation tomorrow, as it's possibly the only day we'll have till next Wednesday due to rain forecasts.

Glad you made a bit more progress on this. Hope you get it closed in before the 'cold' hits!

Yep, me too!  In a couple weeks it'll be corn shelling time, so the shop building ends.  But once we get the roof on, then it'll go fast.  The outer wall metal will go much easier/faster than the roof of course, then we'll have the overhead doors installed by the seller.  Once boxed in, the colder weather won't affect me much.  I can work in 25 to 30F weather inside out of the wind just fine.

Looking good, Daniel! Thanks for the pics!
