Thanks to everyone who worked on my Jeep last night. It's working perfectly. Almost too well. With all the engine noise gone, I now noticed how much road noise there is. I always thought my ProComp tires were fairly quiet. Not so much now. On the way home last night and the drive to work this morning, we barely said a word to each. We were just enjoying how quiet it was.

My wife and I agreed that it wasn't this quiet when we first got it back after the motor swap which included a new exhaust manifold. It was quieter than before they worked on it, but still loud. I'm wondering if it has been leaking the whole time. Maybe from the gasket or coupler. That might explain why everyone would tell us it sounded like an exhaust leak. Compared to before the motor swap it was quieter and I just assumed all was well.

So, again, thanks to everyone for giving up your Saturday to help. Not once did I hear anyone complain about it even with all the difficulties. The wife and I sincerely appreciate it. If we can ever return the favor, just let us know.

Looks good. Kind of looks like Cracker Barrel, but the closest one is in Arizona.

It was a good time. Remember to get that exhaust flange bolt so we can get all three on nice and tight then in a few weeks we can re check the torque on all the bolts.

Not ballistic. Nobody wants to shoot her. She's too cute.

I was looking for a tactical vest. We do a lot of climbing and I wanted her to have something she could carry everything she needs within reach. Getting things from a sling pack isn't convenient while standing and dangerous on rope.

We've seen many with holsters built in. That would be preferred so she can open carry in the mountains, but the fit is more important. Most seem to be one size fits all which isn't the case.

We've looked everywhere and researched for days without luck. If you have have any leads that would be great.

I looked at it this morning. I would need to drill out the busted one to replace with new. I still can't find the cord for my drill so, it'll have to wait. In the meantime, I think I have an extra c-clamp somewhere.

We are going to start calling you c-clamp instead of Ysb! Also, you new to swing by so I can replace that plastic clip we broke. I have some that should work.

I also forgot to use your grinder for those straps. The ones I'm converting to climbing anchors.
