Congrats to you and the wife Ricky!

Agreed on the red Khris, looks a lot better and should be cooler too since the color isn't so dark.

On the note of cooler, I am also a user of the sun shade in the windshield with the side/rear windows tinted. I keep the windows rolled up though because I don't trust the people I work with and because its a pain in the butt to roll them down "just enough" with the speed my windows go up/down. The sun shade makes a huge difference for heat. I also use it in the winter time to protect the interior from UV rays that deteriorate the dash, seats, etc.

Adjustable ball joints will last longer if you have large tires with a lot of offset. That being said, it's a lot harder to get them in correctly to where everything lines up perfectly for alignment. If you don't get them right, you have to take them out, reposition, reinstall, then try again.

Ouch. Glad he wasn't hurt, he obviously doesn't know much about wheeling and knowing the limits of his rig and his skills. Shame to see a beautiful rig like that in the hands of an idiot.

So its been a long weekend, I'm still recovering. I did paperwork all day today. I didn't get punched in the face like I said I would but 2 other people got hurt because of my actions. There was a big fight Sunday and I was taking out one of the main people in the fight (a friend of the foot ball team that I can't disclose) after he punched one of my guys. When I say taking out I don't mean like we are skipping along. I mean I shoved him back and he tried to swing on me so I grabbed him and drove like a mack truck to his chest, well that turned into about 10 other people falling down and me driving him to the ground. His head happened to hit a rock and cut the back of his head so bad it took 7 staples to close it. Well when that happened one of the POS friends cracked a champagne bottle over one of the guys protecting my back knocking him out and the other one got punched in the face a few times. We are all fine. Its not something I'm proud of but I am sick of this urban bull ****.

How did your weekend go? :haha:

I have yet to see any mention of a turf interior, I really think that will up the resale on that thing.

Buy it from me for $15K, install your turf and flip it for maybe $20K?

Mine neither... kinda saw a couple bugatti's while drinking wine.





I also so probably one of the few acceptable prius cars on the road since it was stickered up appropriately....



The view from our tea martini's.



My drunk friend wearing a bib...



Road a ferris wheel...



This one to be exact...



Saw a bunch of guitars.



Realized being attacked by giant spiders would really suck!



Not quite sure I grasp the concept of the gum wall but whatever, pretty gross if you ask me.



Had drinks up there...



Flew in one of these...



Had Marn as the driver on our duck tour. You did a great job man! Props!





Found my next weekend home.
