going to put it in the jeep now..or i will forget it.

edit;; when i looked at it it looked like it was too short for some reason..after checking it out i realized it was one of the best ones you can get. it is 23 inches closed and extends up to 40 inches"sweet" for you lol..its heavy braid outside with a heavy inside slide thingy with a sleeve to tighten it,after install you cut the excess cable off..
you will need 1 tiny barrel clamp from lowes,or off a old lawn mower cable..it has the piece that goes to the carb and clips into the bracket on your intake"hopefully" like 1 inch ob-round hole chevy uses..
its in the jeep..
becky and a jeep buddy of hers is going to meet at the store at 10 am sat again incase you wanted to wheel..i may but more than likely wont be able to..

Today I picked up a air filter, changed the transmission filter and mounted the aux tranny cooler.

Black is going to show EVERY imperfection in a finish, and Red, well that's just what everyone thinks when someone says Jeep or Corvette.

Orange is a great color, take Yellow and Red, two of the best colors out there and now you're talking! If you think it's a crazy theory take mustard and ketchup (or catsup) and mix them together, you get orange something and it's pretty good on a burger.

In all seriousness I support your decision to paint this machine orange.
