As much as I like the idea, JB Weld isn't going to put my catalytic converter back where it needs to be.

Anyway, the Laredo's about as patched up as I think it's gonna get. I can't afford to have the exhaust welded back together and that's gonna make it difficult to sell.
A little insurance scam might help out lol

I tried insurance stuff with the Pathfinder. Turns out brake-checking people only works if your brakes are better than theirs.

But seriously, the Laredo isn't really in a position where I'd personally like to be driving it, though it probably is, strictly speaking, capable of being driven. I just need it off my driveway for more money than the last time I got a ZJ off my driveway.

You know, the Range Rover is the only vehicle I'd put on par with the Grand Cherokee. And that RR Sport gives me that fizz in my root. Of course, the parts are supremely expensive, and the Range Rover was competing (and won) against the Grand Cherokee in the category of most unreliable bucket with 5 doors, so I have yet to buy a Range Rover.

Get a Land Rover, put a sticker on it: "My Other Car is a Jeep"

Bought metal and a cutting wheel and fabricated the parts to make mounts for the LED bar on the roof. Just have to take them to a local shop and have them throw a couple beads down since I dont have a welder.

Got my ford 8.8 axle from a mountaineer w/ 130k on it today. Open diff so I can put in a lunchbox locker. Can't decide if I will keep the 8.8 style brakes for swap the brakes from my 44a, I got time to ponder.

Got to grind off the stock brackets so I drop the axle off at my dads friends house to have him weld my artec truss on that I've had since last March

My goal is to have this swap done by the end of January.

Just get creative I know a guy that knows a guy that knows a guy that knows a guy that knows a guy. Well he took his truck down to the river to fish then broke out the windows and put some nice dents in the body. Well the insurance company totalled of out got a nice 25k check to. Don't try this at home if you got caught you'd be done lol

Made some purchases today. Bought some custom molded floor mats from Quadratec, new headliner off of eBay, and new wheel seals and bearings. So I'm going to do some ignition upgrading, so can somebody point me in the right direction as far as spark plugs and spark plug wires/cap and rotor go?
