The gas price posts a few pages back brought back a fond memory. I was 15, turning 16 in a few months. I got my first vehicle, a '91 YJ with the 4.0L and a 5-speed. The reason we got it before I could get my drivers license was so I had time to learn to drive a stick. I had done it before in my granddad's old S10 when I was 13 (probably not a lot of that going on these days, but he lives in a very small town). Turned 16, Dad took me to get my license. Passed the test with flying colors. And about a week later, the first time I filled it up on my own. $14 later it was on F. Gas was under $0.90 a gallon, and it was a 15 gallon tank. Ahhhhh, those were the days. The freedom of being 16, in a Jeep with the top and doors off, and cheap gas. Fast forward about 16 years and it takes about $50-60 to fill up my TJ.

I remember when gas broke two bucks a gallon. I drove past the gas station one night, needing gas but feeling too tired to stop and thinking "yeah I can make it home. I'll just fill in the morning."

Next morning came and I stopped at the gas station. Gas had gone up something like $.08 overnight and was now at $2.03. I remember panicking and thinking "Sh*t well I guess I won't be driving anymore. How the hell could people afford that?" It cost me like $35 to fill the TJ up. Fast forward to now and I would do a lot of things to be able to fill the Jeep up from red to Full for only $35!

Cheers

What do you guys think about using a poly tank from a '92 sahara in my '88 sahara?

Edit: NVM. Dude sold it.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Good service from TeraFlex. My oil pan skidplate arrived today, 2 days shipping time. Top shelf.

Too cold right now to install it.
The skid uninstalled:
Medium beefy, perhaps 1/8th inch thick.
Looks easy enough to install. the instructions say for TJ only, but it IS drilled out for a YJ, depending on the exhaust pipe. I have a TJ style pipe, so I am hopeful on the fitment.
Not real sure what kind of hit it will prevent, but one can never have enough armor.


Will post a pic when the deed is done.

Psh my Facebook is like the Maury show with all the people I went to high school and college with. Need to feel better about my life? I just spend an hour or 2 scrolling through some of their posts and I smile and crawl back under the jeep. I had a girl complain I haven't changed the profile pic in 2 years, so I changed it to a pic of the jeep. First reply "it looks better in pics then it does in person"

Nah she was right, I used a 2 year old pic of it when it was shinny and one color. She got to ride in it a few times and enjoyed it thoroughly

Nope. As far as I can tell, you me and Canman are in that club.

The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.

I'd rather be tied to a chair and forced to listen to Taylor Swift for ten hours than waste two hours of my life scrolling through Facebook... I think IQs drop ten points as soon as people log in there.
