If I didn't just dump almost $300 into it to get it going for the rainy days, I'd be all over it.

Suppose I could trade him mine for his, plus cash, so I can have a Jeep and harness and HVAC for the donor....

All about that unibody life.

This run went awesome today. Lots of hikers out there today and it was a nice run. Got to watch a Montero do some handstands. We got er done though with only minimal damages. Just some scuffs.

So much fun when you do it by yourself with a 1/4 tank of gas in it. I forgot how damn heavy and cumbersome that one man job is. SO after I got the tank down 1/2 way I had to disconnect the vent lines. SNAP. There goes the vent line 3 way tee in.... Off to autozone.. After that was fixed I still had to address the carriage alignment. A simple dowel took care of that. After all that was done and I got to put the tank back up. Did you know that you cant put the rear of the tank on 1st then the front w/o it hitting the track bar? Me either. So the track bar came apart. I couldnt get my rear left and right body lift mounts in because the bumper sits 1/4" higher plus a hair. Now i get to loosen all my mounts and attempt to slide it it. I did, but now I realize my bolts are to short. They were pushing it before and now, no way. Home depot carries BARELY any grade 8's.. Lovely.
So that's where I am today. Bumpers in, tanks back on. Tomorrow is off to K Hardware in chula vista, trackbar, and then it's paint time.
You should try doing this type stuff for a living.

Then ya simply forgo the bolts get the welder fired up and get creative. There are many ways to get things done. When you work on commission for a while or try to make money doing warranty work, you learn to be creative or you starve
