The weather is coming around already. Perhaps I'll start it tomorrow. It's going to involve pulling the flares and emblems. After the flares go back on, I'm doing a custom mounting of the mudflaps that will have dp for bracing. The dp will extend the fender liner down to where I can get a firmer mount on the flaps.

It turns out the alternator replacement was a blessing. I guess the brackets must have had the littlest bit of slop. Either that or I put the belt on tighter than before, but I solved one of my banging sounds that occurred on every bump.

I'm still draggin' *** on the vinyl project. The weather is coming around, but it's the fact that I'm the unemployed, home bound parent. The wife works 2 jobs at $15/hr. So we're surviving. But my boys are very time consuming, trying to keep them on the straight and narrow.

If you don't kill your 32's by the time you swap them out, I'll take 'em off your hands you were my inspiration to bump up my tire size. A little taller, a little wider. But definitely MTR's

The darker of the two is my stepson, who wouldn't listen at the age of 11. By 12, he was on probation. Spent 3 years screwing up. Here we are at 15, and he says, "thanks, without you I probably would've ended up in prison." Now he's making sure he passes Spanish so he'll be ready for college. I gotta say, I'm proud of him

I know this is a Jeep build thread, but sincerely, I wish you the best with those kids. We have two daughters, 12 and 9. They are challenging and trying to no end sometimes - but man what an adventure they have given my wife and I.


.......now then.......carry on with Jeep talk..........

Well, I've been held up on projects for so long, I'm ready to go out in this snow storm and put in my new radio antenna.

Skatepark freak, hell ya! I found out his mothers' new husband (guardsman) has family benefits that will get Brandon college for free. He wants to go into engineering and produce his own skateboard brand, SK8NNGR8 (Skatin's Great).
As far as the tires, I guess we'll have spare tires to share cuz I'm getting a set.
