True, i do work on the side between 2 jobs restoring a 1962 AutoCar semi, next time im over there ill take pics, but tax free money is the best when modding the jeep ha.

I towed a 1995 Pathfinder on a 2000lb trailer 30 miles, total weight was in the neighborhood of 11,000 lbs, gvw for pathfinder was 5,000lb

So what are your plans for the jeep

I think so too.

My stepdad bought a really nice Toro personal pace lawnmower, stihl weed eater and stihl blower when we moved in to my current house. He is nice enough to let me use it all on the other houses, in turn i maintain all the equip and do our yard too.

that works! I use a very nice 14 year old snapper LOL. it still runs strong, and the self propelled system on it is near un-breakable. Hate to see the day when it dies.

I use my dad's gas weed eater (mine broke, gotta fix it), and I got an old gas Echo blower. I tried using an electirc edger machine once, I hated that thing. I just flip the weedeater over.

Awesome! I remember I had to edge a sidewalk where the grass grew over a good six inches over the sidewalk... wow did that suck... used so much freaking line. The worst part is when one of the lines break and you have to re-spool the damn thing.

LOL I know the feeling! I like how the stihl auto feeds string when you hit the head on the ground. So that is nice until it breaks... and you have to reload

AP Physics Exam Today.... Hmmm this could be fun

AP Physics exam suckkkkedddd.

Made 150 bucks on the one yard in one day.

Edit: There is a problem with the towing capacity of the Jeep... I do not think that my Jeep or any Jeep will handle the 2006 Jayco Jayflight 31BHDS Camper Trailer that my uncle has that I was PLANNING on towing to the OBX for beach week....
