Gonna draw them up tomorrow with the pieces I need cut and try to get them picked up Friday evening. Then beyond that... Need to get the hitch coupling piece that actually drops onto the ball when you tow and I bet we'd have everything you need at that point with the random metal I have here at the house.

Dang Doc, that looks awesome! Great job!


Interesting that I am reading all these posts (here and NVS) about scorpions in Vegas but I, a LV native, have only seen one scorpion here in my entire life of being a normal kid (I.e. looking under every rock, log, etc and exploring all the neat hidey holes in hopes to find a critter). We've had an occasional problem with some ants, but that's an easy fix & the only other time we've ever had a bug problem was growing up near a storm drain there was roaches from time to time, but never really had them in the house because our pet skunk considered them a treat, as did our pet ducks. Guess I'm just lucky. I kinda want to go buy one of those flashlights to go poking around in my yard at night to see if I can find some cool critters.

Do you want an A-fram or straight style?

I have a TJ. You have a Jetta. Without the Jetta, you will have room for a TJ again... Just sayin.

Oh, I have plenty of parking space. It is just that the TJ does not have enough physical room for the family.

I hope it works out for the designer. Guy has guts to start a car company in this day and age.
