did you know mexico pays for everything in cash? Novel concept for a government huh?

"we need a new road here"

"we'll put it on the list"

flash forward 5 years

"Here's your new road people. Here's a check for the work that was done, mr. contractor"

Its the American mindset of instant gratification without consideration of long term effects. Where that came from, i dont know.

Mexico is also classified as a third-world country. For a multitude of other non related issues.

The American mindset comes from the "me first" mentality. People aren't courteous anymore. No one gives a ish about anyone but themselves. It's a ticking time bomb honestly. Just ponder it. It also seems to be a common trend on this forum of attacking people for posting opinions and practices. If it works for you, go with it. Marn, get a credit card, and Khris, get a smart phone! Lol you guys know you don't need those things, and it's great for you. Others may disagree, and that's fine. If you don't like it, don't read it not respond to posts about it. It sucks that others feel the need to belittle you for those decisions.
The same mentalities can be seen in every political issue. "You have guns, I don't like guns, so no one but the cops should have guns. Lets ban guns!"
"You have money, I don't, and don't wanna work for it. Lets get more welfare programs so I can have more for free!"
"You like jeeping in the wilderness. It hurts animals and uses lots of gas. Lets close off road trails to everything but foot traffic. It's how they live originally and it's a pure existence(in hippie voice)"
If someone says or does something you don't agree with or find offensive....don't read, listen, look at it and mind your own business. If it isn't hurting you, EFF OFF!
My two cents, carry on!

wow power. The fact that you think some of the things people say on here offends people just offends me.

I honestly can't think of a single time that I was offended on here. Maybe it is just that I don't give a rats arse what is said on the internet. I have met most of you and I know that you guys are cool, so therefore I take everything on here as mostly joking. I think this place would be very boring if we all go along and talked about starbucks, iphones, and other hipster stuff. Heck just think about how boring it would be in here if Khris did not post up all of the pictures of his stuff. Just to make sure that Khris is reading this could you post another picture of the motorcycle jumping over the Jeep?

I have four patches of this grass. I don't want them anymore. I have other plans for their locations. Can anyone use them. They're cool and all, but I just don't want them. Whoever wants them, come dig them up and bring me a rose bush or some coronas or something we can figure out. Or just take them. Whatever. Otherwise, I'll take them to my parents' house or trash em.
As can be seen, the dogs like to make them beds. They may or may not survive. They've been in full western direct sun and seen to do fine.

Merrick, you need a header right? I'm in need of a 99 specifically and I think that's what year yours is. Read below, this applies to you too cause of your specific model year! Yours might not be a straight forward install though and may involve a hammer or a grinder, won't know till we do it, that's the reason for using your specific model year though!

Sorry guys... Unless someone else has a '99, then I'll open up the offer below to whoever can out bribe Merrick! LOL

For the rest of you though!!!

I'll bite... I've gotta clear some details with the bossman in the morning but I'm betting he'll be fine with what I have up my sleeve.

Anyone want a free exhaust header? What's the catch you say? Keep reading...

Must be a '00-'06 TJ, 6 cylinder with 100% stock exhaust in front of the muffler. Also, must be able to do the install at my house in my driveway on a weekday in the next week or two. Also must be able to be at my house earlyish to get started on it. 7-8am arrival time, when we're done, we're done. Also must be willing to help out! I'm not doing the whole install myself, sorry! I'm down to get dirty and do the work but you're getting a free header out of the deal so some extra hands would be nice. LOL You also have to be willing to deal with me taking pictures of virtually every step along the way.

Now why am I offering this? What's the hidden agenda? Well, really not much... We've got headers that we sell but in all honesty, we've never done an actual install. It's a product that we buy from a manufacturer and sell under our product name. We've had less then a 1% return on them. Basically as simple as it gets, on the 00-06 model specifically I want to see first hand that they fit with no problems. (There's a different hidden agenda on the 99 model I mention above with Merrick) We also don't have install instructions so if I'm doing it I might as well take the photos and notes to knock them out along the way.

Last and far from least, owner of jeep must arrive with cold 12 pack of mtn dew!


First come first serve, right now other then the '99 specific offer, it's only open to 1 owner with a 00-06 model.

Oh and Andy, I don't mean to point you out of the crowd cause I honestly would just text you and say bring yours by and lets do it but honestly, I'd rather give it to someone that's going to be keeping their jeep and I know yours is short term. Sorry bud, no hard feelings... It's not going to make or break your jeep sale.





What I need to clear with the boss is just verify he's cool with me doing this at my house rather then here at work. Our tool selection here at work blows compared to what I have at my house so I'd rather do it there to lessen the frustration. Cause I'm doing it at home, I'll be solo which is why I would like your help on the install. The other thing I need to clear with the bossman is what we'll do if for whatever reason the header turns out to not fit, or the rest of your exhaust doesn't mount up to the flange or something. Are we paying for an exhaust shop to fix it or do I have to pull it back out and put the stocker back in? Basically I want to clarify details first.

looks like lilly turf to me.

decent plant. look good around the bases of palms and whatnot.


transplanting will be a craps shoot tho, those 3 look kinda junky (no offense) and stressed, likely wont survive.

I don't own nor have I ever owned any of these things you mention! I'm still learning to read!


And I can't remember every being offended by anything anyone on here has ever said. I don't understand a lot of others and question them but have never once been offended and I don't judge either. I don't believe in god yet find speaking with believers awesome cause it's really interesting to me. Same with addicts, I've never been one so I find hearing about their issues fascinating cause it's such a foreign concept to me. Same with living out of your means, if you can't afford it, why did you buy it? That's a crazy concept to me and I find it interesting that people do it. Simple as that... If you think I'm calling you stupid or dumb or something, I appologize! A lot of my comments have a sarcastic I'm superior undertone, it's my way of typing...

BTW, all you jeep owners are dumb!!!! I've already got Andy drinking the coolaid!!! Who's next? LOL

When I said "you" it was a collective public "you" we all have the same basic views on stuff. If I have ever been offended, and I can't think of when I was, I just read it, and took it as opinion and moved on. People too often feel that they should be compensated for being offended. Compensation should only be given I real damage has occurred. People need to stop being sensitive about a lot of issues. We all take jokes in here, but when the same, lame old jokes and insults pop up repeatedly, it gets more annoying than offensive. I know most of it is good old fashioned ribbing, but hen the same topics of jabbing are beat like a dead horse, it's lame. We all seem to be a pretty close knit group and any of us would likely drop everything to help each other out for no compensation, and that is completely awesome! I'm glad I found this forum because I have made some great friends and had some great times with everyone here.
Long winded story short, ribbing is ok, but sheesh, get over it and move on from the same topics of attack. Khris doesn't want a smart phone. Stop attacking his resistance to getting something he doesn't feel he needs. Marn doesn't want a credit card, see above. Puck has his own ideas about what he wants to do with his rig with the money he has, let him be. Give opinions, but don't berate him if you feel he is going about it the wrong way. Be supportive!
