I think that tattoo is either a scratch and sniff or maybe just the lick and nibble type. Either way I would not kick them out of bed for eating crackers!!!

driveway looks good. I have envy and grow more sour about married life every day.

Same motor but I really think my 5 speed is getting that much more power to the ground and the extra travel I have over the race truck should get it there. Just a matter of if I can get the shocks dialed in cause he has way more shock then I do. That's all once I redo my front end to hold up to that abuse! And if things go right I should have a center console like the race truck but also a headliner, padded wrapped interior cage, carpet, heater and a decent system in the cab too vs. his sheet metal interior! LOL This next phase I'm stepping up the strength of my front end and also giving the interior some much needed love!
When strengthening the front end, are you talking the suspension or the engine cage? Both? When you build the Expo, how difficult is it going to be to retain the A/C? I know driving the Jeep without the windows on some days brought the suck. I can only imagine that your truck was even worse being black and all. I am hoping that what you learn on the Expo will carry over to what I build.

I wouldn't kick them out of bed for much of anything. LOL. As for the single life, dude, the grass is not always greener on the other side. In fact, my love life is a barren wasteland with no signs of life or vegetation. Grass is but a fond memory.

Just turn the opposite direction on 95 when leaving work one day. Plenty of purchases to be made out that way

I cant go to a place like that in uniform. Besides, the strip and a bottle of rohypnol are much cheaper.

Every time that we go to mammoth we say that we are going to stop and take pictures of each other in front of a brothel sign, but it never happens

I had a service call at the one right on the 95, I think it's called Area 51 something or other. Two of the...employees came in to the convenience store section and were straight up trailer trash! The one called herself "Dallas diamonds!" Lol think of the most redneck, hick, white trash chick you can, and that's the...goods! Rofl! I'll pass, thank you for the offer, but NO! Lol

This one doesn't have power windows or locks which I actually like cause my white ones barely work and just about every old ford I've ever been around has hardly working power locks and doors. Keeping it simple. Laugh all you guys want but this thing really is in good shape for a 22 year old ride and wait till I'm done with it... I'd like to see a jeep go as fast or crawl as well dollar for dollar while still being 100% comfy and well mannered on the road.
That's great! And it probably needs new outside handles, the spring inside breaks/gets weak, and get floppy like you said. Or finagle a new spring in there.

I'll mess with the rear ones when I put the fiberglass panels on and extend the door handles out to still work. The fronts, I'm going to look into swapping them with the ones on my white expo. That's the thing... There's a handful of minor issues with this new one but every single one of them can be fixed with good parts taken off my white one so no money out of pocket. I'll admit though, I really hate messing with door parts in general.
