Speaking of wrenches thrown into plans. I'm flying to Burbank Ca tomorrow for an interview.

The pattern is right and the price will be right. Just not sure if you really want them. I'm absolutely 100% fed up and over these wheels. I'm gonna make a last chance hail mary attempt at making them work tonight. If they don't, I might scrap my bullheadedness of buying a 5 speed exploder and just start looking at autos and get one asap so I can park this current pos! Between the lack of heat & a/c, the crappy MPG cause it's not running right and now the flat tires every morning due to the wheels not holding air around the bolts on the bead I'm just over this one. Get the fresh one and I can have a normal reliable ride again with a plethora of spare parts for it. LOL Not to mention, it'll be there ready for me to start building when the time comes!

Good thing yours is just a deployment and not an actual assignment.

Having two newer cars has spoiled me. The wife backed out of the driveway and I notice a nice spot of oil on my drip pan. For a second I got worried, then I remembered that Andy drove my Jetta while I was out of town. So he more than likely parked his Jeep in the garage. So Andy you have a light rear main seal leak, either that or it is coming from the back of your valve cover. Just guessing based on where the oil spot was on the drip pan.

Greg you are right on with the new cars. My truck I almost never pop the hood because it doesn't leak so I'm not constantly checking levels. I took my truck to team ford for an oil change right when I bought it. Drove to SLC through a winter storm and I kept thinking I was hearing some lifter click but it was very faint so I figured this is what a new car sounds like. Popped the hood when I got home and found they didn't put the cap back on the oil fill. I had driven through salt covered road for hundreds of miles I was pissed. That's why I do all my own maintenance.

I personally like doing my own maintenance. on my old Jeep I bought an oil change package 4 for $60 I believe. I could not even get the oil for that cheap. This one came with 1 year of free maintenance and my vw came with 30,000 of free maintenance. I just check everything once I get home. The guys at prestige suck, they got oil and trans fluid everywhere. To top it off they have mechanics gloves soaked in oil, which left oily prints everywhere. Then when they cleaned it up, they used suck a strong solvent that it took with ink off all of the warning labels. Just a bunch of assclowns

If I still have the Jeep and you can promise that you won't break it and no body damage... In other words, don't wheel it like I typically did.

Now you have me a little worried. I have been getting a ride to work so I haven't been driving the Jeep much. I'll take a look tonight and see if there is oil under it. Either way, I'll let you know. As it sits right now, the Jeep is due for a good going over. I know she needs at least new front brake pads, an oil change, air filter, a thorough cleaning, and it probably wouldn't hurt to take a look at the plugs.

Last night, I got a call from my Dad. He wants me to build him an AR so I have other parts to look for at the gun show. The cool part about that is he basically told me that he knows it is going to be expensive and all I really need to do is let him know what it costs not only for parts but for my time as well.

I had some time yesterday and I was getting caught up on some extreme 4x4 on spike. They where welding together a full buggy from a box. It was basically every part of the frame, you put it together and weld all of the joints. http://goatbuilt.com/ Takes all of the guess work out of a buggy build as far as the frame goes.

Didn't see the episode but was he using a chassis jig/fixture of some type?


Also, gun nuts... For those of us working, where's the bullet points of what he wants?

The jig is included with the kit. I saw the episode and it is pretty neat. The whole thing can be built in a garage with minimal tools.

Doesn't look included looking at the webpage or if it is, why would they have a different part for the fixture kit? Oh, nevermind, you've gotta buy the "full kit" for $7700 to get it included for the 2 seater. Thanks but no thanks on that deal! You could buy a running CJ, a welder, a tubing bender with dies for not much more and go to town on a vehicle with all the parts included. 4:1 in the Dana300, junkyard 9" rear with gears, find yourself something beefy up front, set of air shocks and build your own 3/4link kit since you own the tools now. I'll bet you could do it for $10-15K.

Buy that complete kit for $7700 and I bet your push $20K before all said and done...

Or go buy something used and ready to go for less then both.

(yes, these aren't vegas, I'm looking elsewhere for stuff I can't find here...)

Add $2000 to that complete kit and you've got this and don't have to lift a finger.

or

http://mohave.craigslist.org/cto/3523157434.html

Or here's a chassis for $700 to start off.

http://mohave.craigslist.org/pts/3533208631.html


I'm hypcritical considering I build my own stuff but honestly, buying already built used is hands down the way to go!!! Way cheaper in the long run, you have a life still, just mod it to your needs and go have fun rather then slaving over it.
