I've talked to him about it. I don't think it's in the cards.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I'll tell you now, it's $850 one way from here. And James is 8 hours farther away...

What are the things that NEED to be changed? I need to get an idea what we have in store when you get back. I already told you I was coming up for 5 days straight when you return from Afghanistan to finish your Rig.

Make a list so we can stick to it.

Make a list, give me the things you feel comfortable with me doing, and that's that. I understand that you want to do some stuff to your liking, I'm that way too....but I don't treat any Jeep I work on differently than my own. I know I have little free time but if you want something done while you're gone, it'll get done.

When do you deploy and get back? Is this your first or second deployment? Hows the back?

The back is good enough. I'm an E-6 (hopefully about to be a Chief), I shouldn't be humping **** around and being stupid anymore anyways. I'll leave that to the E-4 and below lol. On a serious note though, as long as I'm concious that I'm not built like I was, and I'm not getting paid enough to be anyones tough guy, I should be good. I can do my job just fine. It's when I get pissed at the little know it all ****s and jump in to take over that I end up hurting myself. I just hate watching people do **** wrong. I leave at the end of March, I plan to be gone for a year. They are saying less, but I'll believe it when it happens. Due to the nature of the mission, I can't give any other details. I haven't even told the IndyORV guys what I'm doing.

Jeep update:

If I don't part it out, I'll be making some changes. Now that I'm not trying to get it done anymore, I'm less and less happy with how it has turned out.

James you have the some awesome metal skills. Do you think you could just build your own frame and fix things like you need them to be?

James, take a deep breath, think again about selling your Jeep. DON'T do it!! When you get back and rest up you will feel diferent about it. We will help you get it on the trails again. I still want to run some trails with you.
On a side note, we still have to come over to loan Meghan that item we talked about. Give Steven a call, let him know when would be a good time to bring it over.
