Hey Pat I was just wondering if you still have those springs laying around. I had to sell my lift because of some trouble, and need cash, so I'll be doing the bastered/zj spring lift for C4C

With wednesday being the last day of school at the Tech College I go to, its time to bring our boxes home and clean out the shop.

So I brought the Jeep and the trailer I got/added to (Its sole purpose is to haul my box), to school. First I loaded my buddy James box up and hauled it home for him.

Blue Snap-On box



It was not time to go to work yet, I still had a couple hours from leaving school early so I went back and grabbed my box!

....I am more of a Mac Tools guy.

Mac 1080 Tech Series, I will probably be adding a side bank or top within the next year.







And, next to my Craftsman box and china tools at home hahaha

And then, it was time to go to work. So I unhooked the trailer, and loaded up the HP30 to bring back to work since I had it home for doing the balljoints this weekend.

Hahah you dont... They actually made a rule for next year that we need to have smaller boxes. Most peoples are half the size, but I am what most people call a "tool whore" Being I work at IRO, and a full service auto shop I have an excuse. I have worked at the other place for three years in July.
