What's the tally so far for Sundays little expedition? I'm still in (unless something comes up).

I'm in a stock JKU Rubicon.

A friend in Texas sent me a bunch of wild hog jerky. Jerky isn't cooked, right? My immune system is low at the moment and I'm concerned about eating uncooked meat.

This same friend owns a bunch of acres ot there. When I'm safe to fly, we'll be heading out there to thin his hog population a little. Really exicted about that.

It looks like Sunday will have 4-5 jeeps! Ysb, if your trip to Texas has enough notice, and you want company, I would love to bring my AR, 308, and a 44mag to help...reduce populations!

Doc, just for an experiment, got to your local auto parts store and ask for an electric choke thermostat for any year slant six with a Holley 2bbl. I found one in a wrecking yard by pure luck. Also, mmckeig, where's yojik? Haven't seen him here for a while. Ysb is right, I think, depending on what your rig is for, super/turbo would be better benefit than an 8. At least for mudding and running dunes! Rock crawling, you'd be better off with a good low end cam swap for the low end torque! Most 8s have a higher rpm power range unless you really cam it down to 1500-2000rpm, but your gas mileage falls off too(better have gas cans) my I-6 makes plenty of power for anything I've thrown at it so far. Don't really see a reason for more power(I really can't believe I just said that, but it's true. Im not racing!)

I would just go by something like this
Quote:
Illnesses due to Salmonella and E. coli O157:H7 from homemade jerky raise questions about the safety of traditional drying methods for making beef and venison jerky. The USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline's current recommendation for making jerky safely is to heat meat to 160 F and poultry to 165 F before the dehydrating process. This step assures that any bacteria present will be destroyed by wet heat. But most dehydrator instructions do not include this step, and a dehydrator may not reach temperatures high enough to heat meat to 160 F or 165 F.

After heating to 160 F or 165 F, maintaining a constant dehydrator temperature of 130 to 140 F during the drying process is important because:

the process must be fast enough to dry food before it spoils; and
it must remove enough water that microorganisms are unable to grow.

Its just crazy to me how much stuff for new cars cost. I could build a NASTY engine on a 360, or 401, for the wagoneer for WAY less than the cost of just that supercharge before installation. Or do a bad arse tuned up diesel swap too.

I hated how much it cost to do even a basic repair on my magnum. Modern cars are spendy.
You will get around 100 ft lbs of torque as well and it will make it at a lower RPM like around 2000. I would never buy one. I like NA motors more.

I'm not sure I was back East for the past month. His Jeep is still in the parking garage, so I know he didn't move. haha

I was definitely at Frankies Tiki Room with him and his wife and my girl on Wednesday. He's alive and well.

However he thinks he popped the gears in the front of his jeep, was taking a corner and PING. now it clicks and grinds and pops whenever his front wheels are turned.

Unless he was in 4wd, it's more likely it's the rear spider gears. Mine did the exact same thing...twice! Does it lurch under locked turns? Mine did. Feels like the axles are moving laterally. It's a $1000 repair at most shops. If mine does it again, it will be out of warranty and I'll upgrade to a G2 assy!

He has plenty of land out there. I think it's several hundred or several thousand acres. I'm almost certain it's thousands.

I've only flown to his property, so I don't know how far the drive is. It's west of Waco somewhere. He's the same guy that flw into the airport in Henderson that Saturday we all met up.

I could ask for a future date.

I'd love to shoot a wild hog! That would be the best vacation ever.

Everyone that I've ever talked to about wild hogs says, rifles are fine, even big calibers, but if you miss or don't kill it with the first shot, 44mag is the smallest thing you should be carrying for a pistol. They also say its gonna super piss them off, and you better get the rifle slung and the pistol aimed and fired quick because they are nothing short of viscious!

I grew up hunting pigs in California I've shot will over 100 and have never had one attack back. The people that go after them with dogs and knives are the ones that get hurt.

You dont buy it you build it!!

Supposedly, they can take 223 to the head and it doesn't faze them. Skull is so thick that the bullets just ricochet! Guy I used to know Said he was hunting them with a 30-06 and a 357. His rifle shot winged it, it charged, he ran, jumped behind a tree and shot it in the forehead with 357 just above the snout. He said the bullet rode the skull and came out between the ears. Really really pissed it off and his buddy 44d it right behind the eyes on the side and dropped it. Could be bs, but I'll err on caution!
