This is a good deal for tires if anyone needs any.

That is a steal. I think YSB needs new tires and he has procomps on his now. Same size.

I thought that too but it's a bit large for a bobcat. Unless that is one big bobcat. Maybe chupacabra .

Thats a cool rig. Looks like it would be a tad weird to take out wheeling tho.

Not really digging it. I don't have sound so maybe they discuss it but the fact that the rear tires bounce off the ground on that small bump at 1:04 tells me it's really nose heavy and wouldn't take much to endo it. I wonder if you brake hard on the pavement could you ride a nose wheelie with it?

I noticed the rear hop too. I'm sure that would be something they fixed if the idea went forward, but it's probably something that will never go into production. AEV has had a pickup conversion for many years and Jeep has still only hinted at it. Something that radical is too far in the future to even wish for.

Didn't really care for the plaid interior. Not sure what that was about. For the interior, I think it would look better minimally. Maybe something dark. I did like the use of coilovers. I hope they added lots of sound barriers having the motor inside.

We were almost ready to head out the door to go mining again, but instead I'm sitting in bed with my foot propped up waiting for the bleeding to stop and pain meds to kick in. I was about to make a cup of coffee and knocked a mug off the shelf. In that split second as it fell, I made the decision that I didn't want the mug to break so I put my foot out to break its fall. It hit me right where the nail of my big toe meets the cuticle. It burst and there was a 2 1/2 puddle of blood almost instantly. This hurts so bad.

I did save the mug though.

It would have to be a monster bobcat. So far, the closest match I found was a bear, but bear haven't been in these parts for thousands of years.

Not sure why that would seem unlikely to me though. We've found sharks teeth in the mountains and didn't question that.

I lost two different big toe nails from people stepping on my feet when I wanted to do something else with them. It does hurt. On one I went to the doctor and got treatment (they actually put it back in a gave me betadyne to soak it in for a few weeks) and the other I just let run it's own course. Wish I had gone to the doctor for the second one too.

Anybody here know if I can use a ball joint press to press in a factory style track bar bushing? I am going to try either way, and I have a 2 piece bushing coming in case it doesn't work. I just want to know if anybody has tried it.

Hey Ysb....remember your serial killer comment last week? Yeah, well, uhm, yeah! It's actually true for the pigeons. Got another one today. That's three in two days! Waiting for more! Is that sick? Oh well!
