I'm not sure a grab-n-go camping trip, overnight, qualifies me as father of the year, but I DID let him kayak with a cast on his arm... alone. That earned me a hug. If he woulda flipped, momma would have had my hide. He had fun, ran around barefoot for a full day.. IMO that's what kids need. Less computer time, more dirt time. Thanks for the compliment.
Some of my fondest memories of my childhood with my dad were impromptu trips. They are always the best. You love and care about your kids. You spend time with your kids and do things with them. That's awesome man. Most dads nowadays seem to want nothing to do with thier kids. I also afree less video games and more social interaction in the real world is derinitly needed.

That's awesome man. My thanks is extended to you and your friend (lsturbo:sp?) There are to many deadbeat dads out there now. Its not surprising and very nice to see that deadbeat dads are very rare here.

I agree 100%!!!!
My little one love going wheeling, and wrenching, and pretty much doing anything with me and I love taking her! She's my little buddy

She loves the Jeep so much. In fact she always gets excited since we have the top and doors off and never complains about it being "too cold." Whenever I have a passenger complaining about the temperature, I'm always like, "yeah well my four year old girl doesn't seem to mind!" Usually shuts people up really quick haha!





I love my little girl more than anything in the world. She's picked right out of my ear haha!

Cheers to all you great fathers. It's you whom make the biggest difference in the world.

Was already to take advantage of the memorial day sales for a new set if wheels, then girls night happened. Heavy rains pulled my wife's Denali into the curb taking out her front wheel and tire. Stealership wanted $1100 for the new wheel and tire. Found a new pulled set local on eBay. After swapping the three good wheels and worn tires I got a complete set for $850. Thinks eBay.

Installed new D ring shackles on the front bumper. Does anyone know what those 4 rings are? I thought they were spacers but they are only wide enough for the threaded side of th pin to go through. They came as part of the rough country kit. And only 4 came with it?

They are there to keep the shackle from rattling, your supposed to put the pin threw them so there's no side to side movement from the shackles!

That's what I thought but the pin doesn't fit through them. Only the threaded part of the pin fit through the rings. So I can't put two on each pin. Unless they both go on one side. I guess I could ream them out a little so they will slide over the whole pin.

Jeeps must simply attract that type of person. The ones willing to put in the effort. That let the little things stay important, and that can see the end result in spite of the rust and dents.

Traits that make good dads and great moms.

Meh. My dad had a Jeep(I'd suspect CJ or new YJ) and I've never met him.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

He isn't a forum member though. My dad was a dead beat. He dissapeared when I was 12 he reappeared when I was 25. He actually acted like a father should. I guess its easier for dads once your an adult and self sufficient. He died 9 months later. He was trying to reconcile with me and my sister before he died at the advice of his church. Guess he figured he could keep the act up for a few months.
