You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

Got me a nice delivery today. I bought my self a birthday present.



Got 5 16x8 4.5bs rims. From what I have heard so far I am getting enough money to get a set of tires from treadwright. Hope it will be nice.

I also finished my center counsel mod.

Got her back after a new A/C evaporator, t-stat, all front CA bushings, o2, temp sending unit change. Also 3 liters of coolant added. Now A/C works like a jet engine and I don't have the "clunk" sound and feeling the rock has hit the driver's side floor every time steering wheel goes to the right or returns from it. Also, my engine now warms up and goes to center when it's on working temp, going a bit over when idling in traffic with AC on. Before the gauge was reading always on the 2nd line from the left, and I kept reading the working temp is around 100 C (205-215 F) - now I have it.
Also had alignment done - all in specs except for the drivers front wheel, which was 12.6 to the inside. The guy at the shop was all "I can't belive it" but he set it straight. Bonus point - my steering wheel is now straight when the wheels are straight (was like 15-20 deg to the left before).

When I swapped in my 44a I didn't wanna deal with the parking brake hardware. I even cut off the parking brake cables coming out of the body when I was removing the turdy5, couldn't get the stuff apart on one side so I said "don't care." And a wonderful thing about living in Minnesota is that there are no inspections

Went wheeling for the first time since my control arm bracket repair and it seemed to hold up and picked up a 99 GSXR 600 for 1800 bucks. Wheeled the tracker a bit to lol.
