I looked and the bottle tree pictures are funny! Assuming you're not completely screwing with us... How much room do those bottle trees really need? Would they work in a planter like what I have here in my front yard?

I'd like to put something low maintenance to go with my fake grass!!!! LOL I'm not opposed to watering but don't really want crazy trimming or crap falling all over the yard either. I've thought about roses cause once they go they're like impossible to kill I've found out with the ones at the front of my yard. They only need trimmed every once in a while too.






Oh and if you ban me, I'll just go hang out in the explorerforums.com anyways! I really doubt JF.com is going to sell my TJ. LOL

ok, was the one girl that was on here for a while fake?
The hose problem has been fixed, minus the vac lines to the front axle. Now I need a computer to research what to look for to fix my problem.

they need more than a 10" planter, haha.

What do you want, a hedge, color, something low something tall?

Throw some Orange Jubilee in there.

anything other than cacti is going to need to be watered pretty much daily in the summer. Do you not have any irrigation?

P.S. i dont care where anybody hangs out. I'm not out to ban people or I would have just banned people.

so frustrating... just got a text from perstige... yeah yeah I know. But they are offering 115% of the kbb trade in values right now. I just looked my year old jeep with 14k miles and it would put my trade in 300 over what I got the Jeep out the door for after USAA and military discounts. If only my wife did not have orders I could have another brand new jeep and I would have basically driven this one for a year for the price of taxes.

Are you guys staying here while your wife is guarding south Korea from the ChiComs or are you going to spend the year somewhere else?

i dunno what mine needs, obviously it all leaked out somehow, and with the cost/scarcity of R12, I'd like to fix it first!

I ought to just throw a vacuum pump on there one day and see if i cant figure out whats up.
