I think that area was flooded a few springs back

Someone burned parker bridge a while back and the took donations to rebuild it. Grampa donated a lot as its in his back yard. Next time your there the south entrance has bricks with names of who donated. You will see my name on one. Kinda cool, and pretty small world. Lol.
If your talking about Marion it isn't near findlay at all its i think 30 min south of upper. there are a lot of doctors that we have around here but for the most part in my eyes its kinda crappy in most areas lol. unless you go to to the outer lying areas then it gets nicer in my opinion.

But I guess its not all that bad of a place to live. i didn't even know that someone had burnt the bridge thats pretty crappy of them. My mom and dad like to drive over there on ocassion and see it. I agree with you on it being a small world lol. I will have to try to make it up there at some point and check out the bridge again.

I really need a 231 shifter bezel. Without it, the shifter doesn't stay in place. I went wheeling yesterday and while I was pretty much sliding down a steep incline into a creek with a bunch of pointy softball sized rocks, it slipped between 4pt and N. Started grinding like a mother ****er. Scared the **** out of me because I thought it was my transmission. But then I realized I'm a ******* and it slipped out of gear like it has many times before. But somehow, I had a lot harder time going down the hill than up it. No wheel slippage at all. My friends were all like "how did you do that?" lol.

94 Grand Cherokee 5.2 33in. Federal Couragia M/T's on Procomp Steelies, np231 swap, IRO Hack n Tap SYE, Carolina Driveshaft, 4.5 in. lift, RE front upper/rear lower ca's, RC front lowers, Ironman rear uppers, IRO 4.5 coils in rear, 3.5 and 2" bb (no isolators) in front, Bilstein 5100's, Clayton/JKS adj. track bars, KOR rad support and SS, Magnaflow/Flowmaster exhaust, clear corners, custom light bar w/ Hella 500's

how would the shifter bezel hold it in gear?

Took the front doors off for a couple hours and cruised around. Got some really, really strange looks when I drove around campus with a doorless ZJ. One guy stopped in the middle of the road to stare.

You shouldn't need the gate to hold it in gear. It needs adjusted.
