That's not how it works. In most instances, the person using Viagra still needs to be aroused. All it does is increase blood flow. There are sometimes when the bone won't stop. That happened to me once. I got up in the morning and it was up before I was. I was standing at the toilet trying to talk it down so I could pee.

The news is now reporting that it happened at the observation parking area. That overlook near the Red Rock exit. It's looking like he may not have been hiking, but may have been walking on top of the wall that's there to keep people from falling.

That's how the news is reporting it, but they keep showing pictures of rescue vehicles at other spots in the park. Not sure if it's being misreported or they are just using stock footage.

So, yeah. It doesn't seem like the initial report of a climber falling was accurate. So, disregard my previous statement. No need for me to ease up on the climbing. Like I was going to stop anyway.

I have some generic Levitra if you want to give it a try. Same result, but it's released slower and the effects can last up to 48 hours. Not 48 straight.

Nah, I'll just go back to eye drops in their drinks so they crap their pants! LOL, actually I've never done any of this... Does that really work??? HAHA


BTW, if anyone is bored around 4:30-5ish this afternoon/eve and wants to lay under a jeep to help me lower the transmission down that would kick ***. My friend last night ended up having to work late and I'd really like to get this thing down tonight so I can get the converter and floexplate down and get the flywheel and clutch installed and start moving forward rather then tearing apart on Sat! LOL I have beer to offer and it really shouldn't take more then a couple minutes, it's just a matter of sliding it back on the stand I have it on right now, then lifting it off the stand on to the floor. I can probably do it solo but cause of the awkward position I'd rather have another set of hands.

Never tried that one, but I did help to put Nair in someones hair conditioner bottle. It worked better than we thought it would.

I think I'll try to find her online so I can apologize.

In good cosmetic and running condition, how much is something like that worth? Do they have collectible value yet?

I used to have some 120W lights on the back of my old exploder! They were GREAT for setting up camp at night. They also were GREAT for tailgaters!!! LOL

No concern of crushing/breaking them mounted low like that? I'm not super familiar with how aggressive you are with the wagon...

Also, do you tow/haul with it? Ever think about pulling the overload leaf out of the pack to see if the ride is better and if it flexes better?

I told hat trick to a friend of mine and he went and did it to his room mate who was a girl. I felt bad because I didn't know he would actually do it. I am pretty mad that he didn't take pictures.

I would come help you but I'm stuck going to SLC this weekend. Just be careful. In high school I was swapping the trans in my truck by myself and I had it fall on top of me pinning me under the truck. It didn't do any real damage but I was stuck for 3 hrs yelling into the house when my mom finally came out to tell me dinner was ready. I'm a little more careful now.

LOL, that's exactly what I don't want to happen! LOL, my mom won't be here till March and my dog is big enough to help but too dumb to help! It's not that heavy really, me and my dad just lifted it in about 5 weeks ago with no problem and I really think I can do it solo but why tempt it. Last thing I want to do is get stuck or drop it and break the case when I have a buyer lined up.

Ever heard of wagonmasters? Late model (not even old ones) wagoneers that are fully restored to factory new condition (dont actually do alot to the motors though) that generally sell for 30k+

A clean (not immaculate and not even necessarily low mileage) late model or final edition (maybe an 88-91) can easily pull in 7-9 grand.

The older ones can be worth just as much if they are clean. A kid i know on IFSJA drove a total basket case one (all different color body panels, mid 80's, beat to hell and not running well) and got hit by somebody and it was totaled. insurance company gave him 6 grand for it because the only pricing info they could find was looking for grand wagoneers for sale at car lots.

They have become VERY popular with the ll bean eddie bauer, tommy hilfigger type preppy crowd and are making a comeback with those folks. They are a classic, the original luxury SUV.

Keep in mind that in 1988 a grand wagoneer that was pretty much fully loaded cost over $28,000 bucks. Thats a luxury vehicle price right there.

Not worried about crushing them, and if i go rock crawling, i can remove them from where they are mounted in about 30 seconds each, bracket and all, and tuck them up into the frame.

I dont do much crazy stuff, most technical trail i've ever run was potato ridge with the waggy.

I'm planning to tow, and i need those AAL's, they are part of my lift. If I remove them, my tires wont fit. Not that those springs have anything to do with it, but this rig was set up for heavy duty towing by some unknown previous owner (6 pin harness, trailer brake, oversized booster, beefy hitch, adjustable air shocks, auxiliary fuel tank, etc etc).

I dont ever want to tow anything thats heavy enough to need a trailer break.
