I'm not a hard core jeep only guy. For the most part I'm not a big mopar fan either. I just happened to get a few great deals on jeeps now I spend all my time looking at the forum and not working on my jeep.

well I saved you the click and just posted some of the highlights above. There's a TON more pics in the build thread with a TON more insane detail but you get the idea of the build. Only thing I don't like in the bronco I posted is the front bumper. I'd have done a stock chrome bumper maybe with a skidplate of some sort tucked in under it.

If you still want one, this will be here and for sale toward the end of summer. We built it about 2 years ago, and haven't run it much.

Should have reliable good, non-leaking, functional 4wd by the end of tonight finally on my hooptie!!! Then tomorrow after work I'm hoping to swing by and pickup the tubing I need to finish my rocksliders/running boards. I'll knock those out between tomorrow and Friday evening and then get the plate work for the tops of them done next week. Over this weekend I should be able to button up the couple other minor open ended "to do" items on it and well, then it's game on finally for my hooptie to go see what it'll do!!!! If things go really well I may take it out Sunday morning with some tools and work on some shock tuning even at a spot close to my house.

about time you get that 4wd working. You have been slacking just a little bit too much lately Khris.

At this time I would like to humbly ask that everyone please pray for me and the kids, the mother in law is flying in tonight for a week long visit.

I really have been honestly... I should've had it up and running 6 weeks ago but it took me that long to remember to get a measurement that took me all of about 30 minutes to measure. I just kept kicking it to the back burner and well, it's been a street queen cause of it. May try and get it in some rocks this weekend even depending how things go.

My prayers are with you. I had to drive to mesquite last weekend because my MIL's car broke down on the way back from SLC. I seriously considered just swerving into oncoming traffic on the 15.

personally I have found that dousing yourself with lighter fluid and lighting a match works much better.

Okay, just want to get a couple things straight from the single and no kids perspective. If you're married, your wife is a pain in the ***, doesn't let you do stuff, won't let you have toys, tells you what to do right? And along with her comes a MIL that you dispise, fear, can't stand... right? And then that progresses to having a kid or kids which then take every dime you had for any toys that your wife may have actually allowed because the numbers I hear for diapers, daycare, education, etc are outright insane and along with those costs you now have a burden that takes up virtually every spare moment that you have when not working. Am I hearing all this right? Just want to make sure... And on top of that, from what I've heard is that once your married not only does your wife gain weight but she also drastically cuts back on the frequency of sex and BJ's...

This is just what I've picked up on this forum over the year or two... Well with exception to Garza, he somehow seems to have possibly landed the one exception to the rule. LOL Although the kid just started so who knows, it may be changing...

I'll go ahead and ***** about the choices I choose to keep myself typically overwhelmingly busy! LOL
