I've been using my Jeep to haul my tools too. No trailer though. More like a very small truck that you have to cut drywall down in order to make it fit. I really dig the front clip too. Although I'm sticking with my squares.

If you wheel with the single grooves and like it are you going to groove the inside for kicks or leave it how it is?

Yeah the sad thing is I have a brand new 3/4 Chevy truck, but I can't use it for personal work, only company business. My neighbor's look at me funny when I load up the jeep and trailer on the weekend's and go to work when I have a perfectly capable rig in the driveway lol.

I still plan on grooving the inner lugs before next wheeling trip.

Head out to the Ranch and do a little dirt bikin with my little sister.

This is my oldest boy (8) he just started riding a crf 80. Today was his second time using a clutch, he picked up on it quick.

I didn't bring my bike today so the jeep and I played around on the mine tailings left over from the big ol' gold rush. Couple poser flex shots

So true!! I've been blessed with wondeful wife and healthy kids my oldest sort of reminds me of me. We bought this bike for our boys last year in hopes they could learn to ride with me. My oldest hoped on it started it and did this his first try.

Finally installed my cb. I got this thing used from my dad. I don't remember where he got. It's a radio shack TRC-502 I downloaded the pdf file of the manual from radio shack. Followed the instructions on how to install it. Wired it directly to the batt. I still need to get an antenna so I haven't keyed it up yet but I got power to it.

This seemed like a decent place to mount it. We shall see how it works out.

I have stopped at every auto parts, Walmart, Radio Shack stores in my town and when I say "CB radio" they all look at me like im from another Planet, and say "Ah! you mean like, what you talk on?" Radio shack guy didnt even know wht one was I had to explain to him the whole while his kids are running around the store screaming "daddy! daddy!"

Looks like I will order a firestik antenna from Amazon.com I can't believe I cannot source anything locally we don't even have a truck stop in this town, closest one is 90 miles away lol. Anyways I took advantage of the nice weather we've been having and gave it a bath again.

Our radio shack sucks, in fact I will never shop there again my father-in-law dedicated 30 years to that stuipid store and barely got away from it 6 years ago. Just last month they fired all the employees and hired a new manager to work six days a week and only work for minimum wage $8.15. If you ask me the "Shack" is digging themselves a grave. I'm just glad my father-in-law got out when he did.
They did have what I needed but only sold it in a kit for $65. I said no thanks!!

You have a good looking rig! I love the renegade stickers on the hood. Really the whole thing. It has a great stance from the front. Cant wait to see more.

I cant believe the nearest truckstop is 90 miles away. I have two within 10 miles of me.

Thanks for the compliments on my jeep, I get more "nice jeep" in public since the CJ grill swap. Now im not dissing on the YJ so don't go all Chuck Norris on me YJ grill lovers. I like em all... well except for the liberty's. lol

Yeah its funny we are the capitol of MT but not a major hub for trucking, nor anything else. It's sad really I don't mind the small town atmosphere. My wife hates it, she loves to shop!!
