Slowly but surely I'm getting parts in. I've only got JKS parts for some reason.



Also put an order in for my new daily driver. Hopefully will be here by the end of May.

Wait until the clayon boxes show up. There will about 6 of them and it will be like Christmas, the best Christmas ever.

I'm sure it is. Every time I see the UPS guy show up I'm like, "hell yes, hope its my lift kit". But then he just pulls out one small box and I'm like, "damn it".

UPS could save gas if they would quit teasing me with just one box at a time.

Ordered myself a 2011 Chevy Cruze Eco M6. Nice little car. EPA rated 36/42 mpg but I've seen some folks get 50 mpg out of them on the highway. Going to tint the windows, do a HID retrofit and call it day.

Just like the Chrysler 200 looks worlds better than the Sebring. What'd it cost you, just out of curiosity? Seems like a nice little runabout. I don't know if I'd feel comfortable driving a car though. They're so...small. Nimbleness, speed, acceleration, braking...mpg; okay, I can see the perks.

You know, I felt the same way before actually test driving a few of them. Once I drove them for a little bit, I kind of changed my mind about it. They come standard with 10 air bags which is nice. Very quiet even though some will say the Eco is louder than other models because it has less sound deadening to cut weight. But coming from the Jeep, its way quiet.

I'll be financing around $18k.

Thanks man.

Never had a problem with the intake and water. But then again, I don't much deep water fording.

And no, I have never had a coil spacer pop out on the trail. Never a problem even at max flex.
