Happy new years everyone, I dozed off at 11:30 and woke up at 12:08... Just in time to miss all of the fireworks all I got to see was the smoke clouds over the strip, maybe next year

I may drop the fuel tank so I'll have enough room to hammer or drill it out. I'd rather not. It's a PITA especially since I just filled the tank today.
Yea I have seen them at Autozone with there hardware... Yea I think you stuck droping the tank.




And Happy New Year!!

Hangovers suck!!! "thank you captain obvious!" right? Broke rule #1-never mix beer with booze!! And #2-know when to stop drinking!! At least there was no retasting of it all, but I feel like I've been run over by docs waggy!!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Finally got it fixed. I pulled the fender well out and using a 3 lb hammer and chisel I was able to whack the old bolt from the side. It never came off, but I was able to bend it back enough to get to the top of the frame cross member. From there, I just dropped in a new nut and bolt and secured it.

It only took a little over three hours, but at least my Jeep is safe again. My hands are so swollen it looks like a three year old drew them, but I dodged a house cleaning day this Tuesday!

Finally installed my spacers today, they really do make the stock rubi look that much better and the wider stance felt a little better on the road too.

It only took two separate purchases due to one from the first set I bought used being damaged (Thanks Blaze for the good price on the second!!). Then took forever to get the wife to hold the brakes while I torqued them on, if only she knew she has to do it again tomorrow when I recheck the torque

Nice try but I doubt it. Looks like out of state plates and the back round doesn't match. Also the chrome is just to awful.

I'm driving back from Cali right now. The PO was Persian. Can I park it in your drive way for a few days? I am having some work done on mine.

I've seen a few TJ's but they don't like it when you pull parts from the parking lot.

Lol! I'm guessing you've been caught red handed?

So, with my enormous amount of free time, I have decided that if I ever have a choice of super powers, I would choose to be able to manipulate time in a way where I can slow or speed time for everyone else, but I would be able to enjoy it at my own pace. Unfortunately, I've also decided that I would not use my super powers for good, but for my own wealth and entertainment.

For instance, I could swipe a chip or two on the casino floor and randomly punch a guy as hard as I could.

I need a hobby.
