No.

From people I know that have come across them, Rick is a ******, Corey is a nice guy and Chum is smarter than appears on tv and is also a nice guy. Take all of that with a grain of salt.

Even when we don't really care about celebrities, we expect them to be bigger, taller, smarter, or more whatever than they actually are. That's probably how some of the legends and lore came to be back in the day. People were glorified across the land and their image got inflated along the way.
I meet "famous" people all the time. Most are nice some are way to big for their britches. Most of the time the posse are the worst.
I remember the first time i meet a famous person here in vegas was a few months after i moved here my ex and i went to the country shows on Fremont street. Then went to stoneys sitting at a table and one of the head liners walked right past me. Yeah i kinda freaked out and the people we were with just laughed and says that happens all the time. He walks back from taking a piss and comes to the table i couldn't even talk lol. Now i charge famous people for me to work for them while they are here. O how have times changed in 4 years lol.

A guy I raced bikes with sold his jeep to them on the show. They did actually buy it but the real world transaction had absolutely nothing similar to how they portrayed it on the show. It was a few seasons ago, white CJ with a fiberglass body... First and foremost difference, he was selling it super cheap just to get it out of his hair on craigslist, they saw the deal, they contacted him and then went and bought it. It aired though just like every other one, he needed the money so he took it down to the shop to see what they'd offer him. Truth is, they'd already bought it and owned it and paid him the asking price before they even filmed the show. He said they walked up with cash in hand and didn't even try to talk him down.

Last call for the grass patches! If anyone wants them let me know. I can put them in little plastic planter pots. If not, they're going in the trash. Just come get them when they're out. Let me know. Many of you have my info, send a text if you want them.

Marn, expert opinion please! What is this plant?



image-1170817056.jpg

How well do these transplant? I would like to move it from there to an area with mor full sun. What considerations do I need to include in te transplant? I know it's best to move a lot of the soil near the roots with the plant, but other than that, I'm ignorant on it. I'll have irrigation in the area, but need to know how much to give it without over/under watering it and killing it.

Sorry Puck, I didn't get any pics of you, and I totally got lucky that the guys behind me took a few shots. I thought this was a cool sequence of me taking a line I made up lol. Anyway, it was nice to meet you and a few of the WM guys! Hopefully we'll do it again soon!

It is going up for sale soon. I need to stop ****ing around with it and just fix it so I can sell it. I really wish I had a press so that I could do the control arm bushings at home instead of taking them up to base to use the press there. New control arm bushings and a JY sway bar and it will be up on CL. Why?

Andy vs Powrjunkey who is the biggest procrastinator? Powr has a family and Andy is single... will the family man prevail? Stay tuned, now for a picture of a motor cycle jumping over a jeep.

Sad, I put in more work on Khris' ish than my own.

Edit:

Just so that you don't somehow think I was slacking, I put up a picture of a motorcycle jumping over a Jeep!

the worst part is that you now have a DD so it is not something that you have to finish in one day. Take the bushings over to Khris' house and see if he has any extra tubing to fit around the bushings but small enough to lock onto the arm. From there get a long arse bolt with some thick washers and use that to press/pull the bushings. You could even use a floor jack and the bottom of your Jeep to press them in. Redneck engineering baby!!

Either that or you could just go to harbor freight and pick up a press for cheap with a 20% off coupon.

Not my fault, I've sent you tons of ads to get you rolling and even took you out of state to get you to spend your money yet you resist! Put the jeep up for sale! By the time it's gone and you find the new project I should be done with my hooptie and maybe you can get it in line before I start redoing the front on my toyota!

And that's all I've got for bikes over jeep pictures...

How about bike over tires?







Bike past cactus?



bike jumping near cactus?



Bike jumping after passing water tank?



Bike steering clear of really really really scary cactus?



Bike rocking #1 open plate after winning series championship but before I had custom numbers made?



Bike in snow?



Bike racing at night?
