I sold the stock wheels today via Craigslist. I drove about 45 minutes away after work to meet a guy. I get there and we start talking Jeeps. Turns out he wanted the wheels for his WJ. I didn't know that until I got there. I told him in an email they will fit on 93-98 Grands. Apparently he didn't believe me. I did a quick forum search to show him otherwise but he bought them anyway, for my full asking price.

What percent tint is that on the front windows? Also did you ONLY tint the front windows or did you tint ALL the windows at the same time?

Apparently he's going to pull the tires off the wheels and mount them on his WJ wheels. I'm pretty sure WJs have larger stock tires than ZJs though. Oh well. I tried to tell him but he insisted. I'm not turning down $200 for stuff that was just taking up room in my garage.

Proved once and for all that 5.2l exhaust does not fit right on a 5.9l.

How is that possible? They are the exact same dimensions on the outside besides the bling and thicker rear drive shaft. The only real difference is inside the motor but both motors are the exact same block.

sacrificed my third metacarpal. Drill press is outta commission so i pulled out the Hilti. Bit got stuck and SNAP. There went my hand bone.

So while at the ER I contemplated selling it. To just focus on school and drive my warrantied Challenger stock. X-ray'd, splinted, slung up and sent home. First time to be in an ER for myself and i'm 26.

But I'm SO close to having her done..where she can only be maintained.

this has taken forever to type. And yay for Valium.



so i cant weld or make any progress on the jeep for 6-8 weeks. sucksssss
