It looks like the front bumper has been damaged and tilts upward which along with weeds creates an illusion of an XJ-Sish front clip.

This was the last weekend I had "free time" and I didn't even finish with the AC. It'll be a month or more before I can even contemplate tackling this. Dang it.

I didn't find any mud there when I opened it up for service, so I'm curious to what is different in our experience. Travel on unpaved roads?

Well, I can only pass on what I learned when I had to address the cooling system, but feel free to ignore if you like.

Where to start?
