In plumbing we have "fluge" room for pipe joints and fittings. So if things don't line up, fluge it a bit.

Not the ones that built my house. Whole house seems to be half a bubble off plumb. Maybe they got confused converting from metric lol

When I worked for my dad he was super anal about everything lining up and being perfectly square. Even tar paper had to be perfect even though you would never see it.

Getting closer, need to trim the front panel to get the bypass reservoir mounted and get some coils installed on the front. And align it too I guess... Front suspension is almost 100% done though. Oh, limit straps also but that's just a measurement and about 15 minutes of work once I have them. Okay, so maybe I'm not close!!! LOL

Don't worry though Marn, there's still no wires anywhere so progress has not been made.



These are with the panels actually 100% secured in place though finally...

LOL, I was down there this past weekend too.

I don't know what cooler I have in my garage but for the most part it works decent. If it's blowing right on you it's great. If I plan ahead, block the back door, crack the big door and let it run a bit I can get it down to low-mid 90's which isn't bad on the hottest of days. I once left it on on accident with all the doors closed, that sucked!!! It was like a swampy jungle in there! SO HUMID!!!

I actually just pulled it out earlier this week. Every summer it's always a surprise of what part will need replaced to get it up and going. This year it's the float valve to control the water level. No big deal, $8 and I have it at home, just need to install it. For now I just manually turn the water on and off as it needs it.

If it helps you guys out it has only gotten above 80 twice this year.

Khris sorry to hear about the new db at work. Every office has at least one.


On a sadder note, my jeep has lost its spot in the garage for the wife's car. Not only that but the only time at it saw 4wd was when I rotated the tires.

can anybody give me some insight as to a rough value on 2 stock factory dana 44 axle shafts? Rear that is.

I dont know if a set of shafts is worth $50? $150? Or what, I literally have no idea. I've kinda sorta just been giving the stuff to people for whatever they offer me, but I'd like to have a rough idea to know.
