They've actually made a noticeable difference; I haven't completely whipped the harsh ride, but it's better. Hopefully the rest of the issue is shock-related...but I'm betting that it isn't.

I've got a nice "Hawaiian Breeze" air freshener I could hang from one of those brake cables...

Hey, there's an Ecto in my driveway right now...I could bring that.

Today's Jeeping: A bath for Greta, some additional aluminum pricing - 6061 is EXPENSIVE, right now - and probably a bit of thought applied to the audio/wiring/electrical situations. I need to order myself some cable, and I really just don't want to spend the caps on it when I still have track bars and steering and eighty-five thousand other, more important things to do.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Come on over! I'll give you a steal of a price .

When are you guys going to URE? Your rig can do every trail out there.

Haven't figured it out, yet. My back is starting to feel a LOT better, but we haven't convinced PolarBeasley to come out of his ice cave.

No, he doesn't, but it's good to know that I've got backup on removing you from the Fortress of Solitude...and you know it's bad when I'M saying that.

I got Greta washed up today, but I need to do some work on the interior; I have all kinds of stuff just piled up in there and it's completely non-kosher. I also need to find a decent cooler that's less than 15" high, and less than the $200+ that a Yeti will cost. One simply cannot go on a midsummer trail run without adequately chilled beverages; it's just not done.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

When I get back from New York I will head down to Uwharrie with y'all . For now I am neck deep in projects over here and I want to get as much wrapped up as I can before I head North . Good luck with the cooler hunt , good ones are pricey

Okay, folks...you heard it here on Live From The Wasteland with Dave: Beasley has agreed to go to Uwharrie when he gets back from New York. If he doesn't, I say we beat him with Homey Socks until he's pretty.

not quite short enough...Maybe another company makes a similar one that is slightly shorter?

http://store.arbusa.com/Fridges-C11.aspx

What good is a cooler in the wasteland if you cant buy/make ice...

edit, poking around online I found this one: http://www.roadtrucker.com/engel/sma...ge-freezer.htm

Yep...the ARB units are just a bit too big...and slightly more expensive than I wish to afford. Maybe I really should try and develop some sheet metal skillz. Also, here's something completely unrelated that I found interesting: Greta's quarterpanel art is on the front page of Victory Girl's new website.
