as much as i wish it was sadly it is not. Tyler and i have been friends since kindergarten. i have always considered him one of my brothers.

give me a few weeks until i can help his family through this time, i will be sure to make something here on the forum for him. if for no one else, but for my own selfish reasons. i am sure many of you will also miss his in your face sarcasm and vast knowledge of jeeps he used to help us all.

Ratmonkey donation page. all proceeds will go to his family.

it's not much to look at... but it's mine.

Sorry to hear. Never met Ratmonkey, but he was always sharing his knowledge and giving advice with others. RIP.

As soon as I read about his untimely death my computer screen went blank and the PC turned itself off.....never done it before..but seemed appropriate. I obviously never met the man myself but he was a knowledgeable man whos views and experience will be missed on this forum. Thoughts go out to his family. R.I.P.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
