I need to get the XJ done ASAP so that I can get to work on the gsxr. I want that done before spring, so it can start being my daily rider.
The PLAN for today was to get to work when I got up, but instead I only slept about 4 hours. I got up at 6am to iron my kids' clothes for picture day. Then I went to work with my wife to get some stuff done around the office for the ladies. I changed the side their fridge opens from. Fixed their laptop and configured it to be able to connect to their wireless network. Changed ALL the light motion sensors in all the offices from 30 sec to 20 min. They are in the process of moving into this office. The poor girls all had sticks, because if they were at their computers for more than 30 seconds their lights were turning off. So, they would wave the stick to get them to turn back on. Silly...
Anyhow... I just got back to the house an hour ago and ate lunch. Now my kids will be home in half an hour, so no chance of napping now. THEN I have to go to MY work tonight at 7pm and pull a 12 hour shift. I'm going to be dragging some serious ***. Tonight is going to SUCK!
Ok, here are the pics of the Scout I saw today. I WISH I was done with the XJ and didn't have too many other projects, so I could at least consider picking something like this up. Then I could fix it up all nice like and use it as my DD and have my HEEP as the dedicated trail *****.
all tucked back in there around all of these boats. It has a for sale sign in the windshield, but no contact info that I could see. Rockers are obviously rusted pretty good, but I can't get closer to see any more detail....
Ok, so as I was sitting there I decided to flex the HEEP for the first time. If you saw me mention it in the "what you did to your XJ" thread this is NOT the major flexing that I was talking about
THIS is the "major" flexing I was talking about. Ok...ok...ok... I was just bull****ting to get you to come look at my pictures It IS the most I've tested out the lift though This is right by myself where they're clearing out trees to build an urgent care clinic or something, which will come in handy since my daughter is a little wild girl and has had a broken arm AND stitches in her forehead just in the past 6 months
Anyway.... here are the anti-climactic pics
Oh, and I tried to pose with the front left wheel up on a tree stump, but I just spun out on the f'n sand and couldn't get on it So, I just pulled it up on that bank instead. If I would have seen myself I would definitely have so feel free to go ahead and give me some ****
Whatever color it is it reminds me of fender guitars and the seventys, I like it.
I used to have a red fender....well it was like a red "burst" dealio if that makes sense. I got that for X-Mas one year and then a fender half stack for HS graduation. I dorked around with it for YEARS. I'd pick it up and teach myself a bit and then not touch it for MONTHS and forget most of it..... wash, rinse, and repeat. I did that for about 5-6 years and then finally just sold the ****er on ebay. I still have the amp though. Well, my wife's uncle is keeping it company in MD until I decide to do something with it. I wish I could play. I need to pick up an acoustic and get someone to teach me a bit.
I have a **** load of guitars I never play. (I collected guitars before I was old enough to own jeeps lol) My favorite one is my 60's sears brand acostic that has a brass "dedicted to class of 1969"on it. It may be worthless but its one of the best sounding acoustics ive ever played.

92 XJ with ARB's, 5" lift, too much armor, 33's and some other garbage
Where in NC is that Scout...I wanna buy NOW.....seriously I will drive to Fayetteville no prob
NOPE... I'm not telling until I get the final word from the wife that I can't even entertain the idea of picking it up. If it's less than $1000 I'd jump on it just to throw it in the garage to work on when I get the rest of the ongoing projects done. If I can't convince her to let me get it and my buddy here doesn't want to take it on as a joint project then I'll let you know. It is SOMEWHERE in Fayetteville, but you'd never find it. That's all the info I'm giving out right now
I just feel like posting pics tonight. Here is a pic from the other week when we had that little ice storm that covered everything in an inch or two of solid ice. I took it when I got off of work at about 6:30am..... It's not the best pic, but you get the idea.
and I just took this pic a few minutes ago... It's really coming down. This is CRAZY for my area of NC. I LOVE it. I'm going to have fun driving home in the morning.
sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, but that's all I have here at work.
[B][I]New Mexico Driving Rules...[/I][/B][LIST][*]As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.[*]Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.[*]NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
[*]Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.[/LIST]
