Does anybody have an old budget boost laying around they want to sell me??

I just got new wheels and tires (BFG M/T 33x12.5R15) and I am on stock suspension, so I need to get an inch or two for now till I can do it right, my springs are sagging about 2" over stock so the BB should put be back at stock height and should be close enough for now, I can make some spacers for the bumps so it wont rub. I want to do coilovers but looking for a cheapy way to get the tires on for the weekend if at all possible.
Thanks!

Good to see you again Jeff. The food was good at that place.
I went to Fry's and got a CB antenna for the motorhome, stopped at UFO Foam and decided to go with a different, higher quality foam for my son's bed so I had to special order it. It comes from back east (because California's regs ran all the foam rubber plants out of state) so I have to go back to pick it up in a week. I went a variable density memory foam. Expensive but he's worth every penny. But I'm NOT installing an X-box 360 on the top bunk for him no matter how much he begs. He can use the one in the rear bedroom.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

Looks like I can get away with just trimming the rear flares (already trimmed the fronts) and make it clear the 33s, I am amazed they fit, they are purdy big...I just went down the street and found a big hill and tried to get the Jeep at an extreme angle and I got the rear on the stops and the flare is the only interference surprisingly.

Although those 3/4 spacers would be nice fro the front since the front sags waaay more than the rear..

I will PM ya and see if I can get by to buy them from you if I have time before I leave...thanks!

So far planning to stay closer to Ocotillo Wells Ranger Station, don't need the extra towing miles and may do some exploring around Fish Creek area anyway.

I'll also monitor 146.550 and channel 14 as long as it doesn't get too noisy on the CB band - KJ6PKD

Look for the little RV with the Jeep flag on the north side of the highway


Or, if it gets too hot, maybe I'll check into cheap motel and lay around the pool and drink

My buddy lives at the airplane junkyard on E. 78 about a mile east of the county line. We can stay there if you want. There's plenty of space to park some RV's.

I didnt know anyone actually lived there?? I alway pass by since I camp very close and peek over the fence, so much cool stuff in there, I wanna go inside and look without being attacked by a dog, lol. Also looks like a VW junkyard in there!

If you go there I can stop on by since my camp is about 2 minutes by dirtbike. Sometimes I see old Bombers doing a touch and go on that dirt strip out there, crazy...

I am bringing the race radios so I can monitor the aforementioned channel for chatter...and see if anybody is within range of me since I am using a handheld without an external antenna so my range is limited...
