You have to surrender at least one. I have the second for all of mine too.

Also, what is this supposed to be?
Axial, as it says on the grill, is an RC car company. They made the first mass accepted rock crawler RC and have made a huge name for themselves in that market. As time went on, they expanded from their original AX-10 to the SCX-10 which is a more realistic looking vehicle. They are the only RC company to have a signed agreement with Jeep to produce RC bodies under the Jeep license. They have shown a few different Jeep concept bodies, typically run by their pro drivers at RC competitions. Because the front end looks similar to the Patriot, maybe we are seeing the evolution of the body line into a pickup?

OK folks here actually comes a Jeep maintenance question.

Can you drill into the axle tube of an 8.8 Ford and tap the hole to accept the brake line mount bolt just like it is on the D35 for the brake lines????

I am checking before I have to fill a hole. Thanks.

I don't see why you couldn't, it's just a round tube, nothing exotic...



And Greg, this seems appropriate for an unemployed JK owner...

Yes, you can. Just make sure you don't thread the bolt in so deep you hit the shaft with it.

And if you're not using the vent/bolt, you can weld a bolt to the tube and not drill the hole.

haha Khris, I still have 3 weeks until I am officially unemployed. Now if only I could get an interview and an offer by then. If only you guys could hook me up. But I guess networking with a parts designer, landscape engineer, coke guy, bug guy, insurance guy, plumber, military, and who knows what else is not going to help me too much with finding a job. I might even have to take a step back and do help desk work if it pays enough.

You do IT work right? Check out the UHC.com website careers section. There are a few IT positions open under IT for Vegas. Search the other job areas too, you may find something you qualify for in the other areas as well.

I wouldn't mention the possible deployment thing. A company this size can deal with losing one IT person. I recommend digging through each of operational areas because some of us have IT people on our teams maintaining tools and databases.

Thanks for the heads up Rodney. I just applied for that position at HR.

As far as disclosing that I might be leaving, I was not going to do that until I know for sure. One of the troops that my wife supervises just had his orders to Italy canceled 1 month before he was supposed to be there, and he is leaving Korea next week. I do not believe that we are leaving until our house is packed and we have plane tickets. With my luck if I tried to milk out not having a job until we left... we would not leave. Besides I need more experience to help with my career progression.
