LOL I know I've given Raptor a ton of crap but this is one where I could potentially make a 5 figure profit with about a days worth of work and very little out of pocket. But... If Garza will actually line up and race it, I'd rather see him with it then just use it as a profit maker. It's a 92 2 door, 2wd. It's not free but... It's about the same price as a completely stock '92 2d 2wd cherokee. LOL Did I mention Radflo 3" front shocks, Radflo bypass rear shocks, King hydro bumps all around, deaver rear leafs with 1 race on them, spare transmission, blah blah blah... For sale, here in town.

Isn't that the one that has been listed on Pirate for a while now?


Edit: shoulda read further before responding. I swear there was one that looks exactly like that for sale on Pirate 4x4 for a while though

Well, fairly official... It'll be pulled up 2" closer then this at full droop once the straps are installed to account for stretch on those. But... With the bumps installed you get a real idea of what this thing does in the rear.



And this "should" be ride height. Tape measure is showing 15" of up travel from this.



And yes, it's actually sitting on it's own weight on the rear right now. First time in probably 6-7 years it's done that! LOL, don't worry marn, this thing is meant to be in the air, not on the ground so progress hasn't been made yet.

I am glad that work is so busy. For 2 work days I have just billed out 47.5 hours. I still have 3 work days of this pay period left. Only thing is, I am freaking exhausted already. Last pay period I billed out 88 hours in 6 work days. And 70+ the week before. I hope there is a break in this busy time soon. I don't know how much more I can do. ..

Sorry for the random post about work. .. just needed an outlet.

I wish I could work that much. I want to be able to load the bank account for baby number 2 coming.

Thank heaven I have 2 interviews today! Maybe a second job will help out

Eff that salary bullshish! It's an excuse to not pay supervisors the many hours of OT they work. I'm trying to find a new career path as well. My job could be such a nice place to work, but middle and upper management suck all the joy out of it. Example: I got an email asking why my calls per day number fell from last year. It reduced by 0.42 call per day! Less than half a call per day!? Seriously? Let's see, this year, I have had to assume the role of night dispatcher, continue my duties as a tech, plus provide procedural support for other techs, technical assistance over the phone and in person to other techs, send weekly reports of shift activity and personal activities, AND have kept my numbers above required level of 94%! Of 684 calls year to date, I've had 12 repeat calls on my work orders. I can prove that 5 of those are not good repeats, meaning they were issued in error. That means I have 7 calls for the year that weren't repaired right on the first visit! Where else can a company require that kind of near perfect performance for what they pay us? What do we get as an incentive to keep the high performance? We get emails and questioned about why it isn't better or faster or higher volume! Plus, we have been running 50-60hr weeks since January...of LAST year! That's 50-60 hrs average. Last year, we were regularly working 70hr weeks for like four months straight! I need a new place to work.

Ok, I don't feel alone any more. Why cant we all just be millionaires and sit on a white sand beach some place and drink beer all day?

It's the white man keeping us down!!!
