Garage
I have a tiny 1 car garage that has no driveway(butts up to alley) that leaves just a few feet on either side of the jeep to work. besides in winter I would much rather have a nice concrete driveway. Good luck on it man! Hopefully one day I will have more than 0.35 acres lol

Nope just making lots of trips into town and out of town to my boys baseball games. I dont want to be that guy that wheels without ever testing his **** out, and holds up the rest of the crew when he learns his setup isn't reliable. Ive been driving it and feel comfortable wheeling it now that I got all the bugs worked out.

I've been that guy The first time it was no vacuum to the CAD after the engine swap, then it was my ****ty wiring job blew an injector fuse so I was running on 4 cylinders. Easy fixes though.

I should say I try not to be that guy. Of course you cant forsee the unforseen but blantant disregard towards a problem and its not fixed before wheeling just boiles my blood. For example we had some ****** bag in our wheeling club who decided to go wheeling with a questionable clutch rod. Sure enough it broke 10 min into wheeling and as I'm trying to weld it back together with a coat hanger and jumper cables he admitted to seeing the problem the night before but wanted to go wheeling so bad he chanced it. He wasted an hour of our time, and ruined my favorite set of jumper cables anyways off my soap box now. fellas have a fun weekend I should be driving topless by the end of the weekend.

Yep it will work in a pinch but since then I've started carrying welding rods. I posted a video about a year ago on the proper way to use two batteries to weld. That day I welded with the coat hanger was doing it the wrong way.
