Looks like this is a very touchy subject for you.

Let's move on!!!! Another stupid thing i did was spend a lot of money on a girlfriend last summer when i could've spent it on the jeep.

i would say my biggest mistake is not coming up with a build plan first. ive spent alot of money on bulding things twice or more. ive gone from 31s, 6 months later 33s, then 1 year later 35, now 36s and 35s. way to much money

I should have put more thought into landing that mountain bike jump Just because I've landed it 50 times in the past didn't mean I shouldn't have stopped to eye it up just like I did every other time. Here's surgery #1 and #4. I'm currently 6 weeks out from surgery #7, 3 1/2 years later. Don't take workplace benefits like long term disability for granted.

ZJ-Orvis , that doesn't look like fun . You did more damage to yourself that I did with my motorcycle accident , I hit a Suzuki Sidekick in the fender at 40 mph in Langley , it didn't have much give in it , lol . I walked away , well , limped . Took out some ribs and bent my spine instead . After biking for yrs , I had my new to me Harley 2 days . It was sooo not my fault . 14 yrs later , I want to ride again

As for the jeep :
I spent 2 hours wondering why my flex plate wouldn't line up until I discovered I had the wrong one in there from the 2001 .

I spent good money rebuilding stock c/a bushings with a lifted jeep (I may never forgive myself for that one)

I spent 2 hours taking a freshly rebuild 249(heavy) back out after a test ride showed no speedo , the last part to go on and I install it backwards , damn speedo gear , grrrr.

Once I even punched myself in the face , closed fist and with a wratchet gripped tight . I have a small scar still on my face from learning how NOT to wratchet while under a car , that was over 20 yrs ago .

That's about 1% of my mistakes
