If you got the right tools and prep all the bolts. A bb should only take you about 2 hours max.

That is awesome, honestly. I miss the days when I used to live on the farm; honestly wish I had never moved. I'm thinking that at 22 now it would be tons of fun to go back and live there...

And, good shock choice! My buddy has the same ones on his WJ and they are not bad at all!

You should be able to change the front shocks in an hour if you have basic mechanical knowledge and a few tools, you'll be fine!

Maybe one day man. For now it's all about finishing school. I'd much prefer the simple country life though. Enjoy what you have man; some people look down on that, but it's precious really and you'll see things some people will never even dream of.

OT: on the ZJ, I didn't do a damn thing.

What are you goin to school for? That really is more important. And I know exactly what you mean. I live in a fairly decent sized town. And It really is a farming community but people look down on it so bad it's not even funny. But I proudly walk through school with scuffed boots dirt on them hog sh** and grease under my fingernails cause its what I love. I'd really like after I get out if high school go out west for a few years and work on a farm before I decide to go to school for somthin. Bad bird what do ya say? Want a farm hand in 2 1/2 years? And those are good days when all you do is enjoy the fact that you a bad a$$ jeep and nothin is wrong with it...for now.

Hahaha yeah man. I'm in college studying political science, which is completely useless really, but I was doing well in school and didn't want to just quit after highschool. Regardless, I'll probably end up working with my hands like I love and enjoy.

Badbird has a sweet life, but there's no doubt in my mind that he's a hardworking guy, which is how it should be.

OT: I've been desperately waiting for snow to kick some *** in the ZJ. Wondering if anybody has any experience with BFG ATs in the snow? I know they have the mountain symbol, but I've read that they pack up, unlike my Duratracs did, which is why I'm considering new tires.

Either way, it's going to be a sweet winter, watching the kids in the neighborhood shovel out the BMWs their parents bought them, while I crush the snow in the old $1500 Jeep.
