Hmmm, ok, lets look at this.

Thank you for the video, it was informative and helpful.

Now I would like to clear something up. I said that I was using a common method from gun sites. That was to try and explain the request.

I am indeed a second amendment advocate and activist. The only amendment that I support MORE is the first one. It allows others to live with different opinions and be able to express them as they see fit, not when others think they should. It also serves another purpose, it allows one to identify the stupid people.

Now your response is what it is and I actually looked at my post again to see if in some manner I was rude and in some way deserved a snarky response, I see that it is not the case, I said please and thank you both and was not impolite at any level.

I am not aware of why you generated such a response, however it is wanting at best.

Good luck

I'm sorry that you feel I was rude to you. The animosity was more aimed at joshcraig and his self imposed ignorance. It also has to do with this topic being brought up every other day.

Yeah that just sounds like a WJ that will bring you more trouble, the rust under the rockers is a big nono.

Wonder what it is about overlands??? When I was shopping for my WJ I checked out 3 of then and they were in the worst condition.

Anyways back on topic, had my breakfast and took care of a few small things I had to in the house now I'm heading out to the jeep to cut up the bullbar on my bumper to get it to fit with my recently installed front Iceland fender flares. I'll post some pics later today with the results.
