Haha yeah I know.

I bent the hoses down right away and shook out any crumblies that I could which wasnt many at all.

I drove the gas level down pretty low because I knew I would be dropping the tank, there is less than 1/16th tank of gas in it according to fuel gauge so I might end up emptying out the tank and cleaning it out then refilling with a couple gallons of new gas to get to a gas station and fill up once everything is done.

Depends how dirty it is in there when I pull the pump out and take a look inside the tank.

Started my motor mount replacement tonight. Took a couple hours to get the old ones out, like the control arm bushings I recently replaced, these thing were beyond toast. The centers fell out of them when I dropped the mounts out of the engine bay. Now I just need to cut the metal casings out of them and press in the new urethane centers.

I stopped by a small local off road shop today to get my atv permit. I asked them about somewhere to fab rock sliders locally, and they said they make them. They showed me a couple sets on their personal rigs and some pics of customer rides. So next Thursday I'm getting sliders fabbed, painted, and installed for $275. I showed them the jcr stage 2 sliders and he said they'll be making them like that. I'm also getting some synergy lower control arm sliders welded on for $50.

Was driving home tonight and when I turned onto my street I heard a loud popping sound and had almost no steering. I'm the second house on the street so I got her to her spot and when I took a look I noticed the track bar snapped on the threaded part of the bushing end. Glad it happened when I was doing less than 5 mph, I don't wanna know what would have happened if it snapped just a few minutes earlier while I was doing 65 on the highway.

You should look more into the history of beer. Beer has actually solved a LOT of problems.
