That's why you need a Mac Decent amount of editing can be done just in iPhoto (the basic photo browser). And you can set your iPhone or certain digital cameras to dump any new photos on your Mac automatically over iCloud without you ever knowing having to click a button or plug in a cable.

JUST KIDDING - NOT TRYING TO START A MAC vs. PC DEBATE!

My actual advice is to use Photobucket as your photo hosting site. Upload your photos to Photobucket (it's free, just make an account) and you can do things like re-size and rotate photos. And Photobucket automatically makes pictures the right size for uploading on forums and such to begin with (not too big or too small) but you can make them smaller if you need to.

And I believe you can use Photobucket with phones, too. There's probably an app, actually. But I've done it without apps in the past. Otherwise, just search google and find out what app you need to edit photos.

Well, finally home again. While I was out of town, my bearing I was waiting to get done in the rear axle couldn't wait. had a god awul noise, but that wasn't it, although good I got it done. They checked the diff and all supposedly ok with that. Still the noise. Said it souned like it was inside of the drive shaft. No play in the driveshaft ujoints at all. Tranny and tcase sounded fine though. Turns out that the rear ujoint was almost fully seized inside causing the issue. No real wear and was no play, but definitely the culprit. Now it rides and shifts a lot better, and have to get used to it as it's like driving a different vehicle now. Flip side is I'm really noticing the front bushing issues now even more. Got a set of RE upper control arms to replace the old stock ones, and then the drivers side ball joints.

What I can't figure out, is why the hell are all the control arms so much worse on the drivers side? plus the ball joints? Front wheel hub was shot same side when I first got it that had to be replaced, as with the TRE's, and the seat was total wrecked. Frame and lower seat wise. Any ideas?

Slowly everything is being fixed though.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

Sucks. It rained pretty damn hard too...

Is it broken?

Don't know who had it before me, but honestly I suspect so. On the drivers seat, back little brackets for raising/lowering were literally severed in two. The front when I got it out was already welded. We ended up just weldding it until I oculd get a new set. (upgraded to heated leather that matched the interior. WOOWHO!) The bottom of the seat itself was all deformed, and the wiring that keeps the seat shape was also bad, like it was pressed down, and pushed out on all 4 sides at once. Couple that with the control arms worn a lot more on that side, ball joints and hubs. Do the math.

It is a shock on your steering. It helps maintain control of the vehicle.
