So today started out ****ty. I had to get up early to run across town to pay rent. Then came back to start to take apart the YJ for the lift kit that is suppose to be here today. Cleaned the garage up a bit and go to jack up the jeep and my jack decided today was the day that it was gonna crap out. I have had this jack since i was 14 and never let me down until today. So i hit up harbor freights site and they got a 3 ton on sale for 89.99 that was 139.99. OK cool then seen some 6 ton jack stands on sale for 39.99. OK well thats more then i wanted to spend today but o well. I check my email and got a message from HF with coupons for the jack 79.99 and stands 34.99. ok so i guess i can do that. Swing down to HF and im pulling my stuff into the cart and some one hits me on the shoulder, its a buddy from work. Well i guess he is a manager and told me to have him called up front when i get done. So i get up there and he knocks the jack down to 55 and the stands to 30 and i got jack oil for my old one for 5 bucks. Cant beat that right there! lol
now i know who to call when i need stuff for the garage

wont sell for 82k, they just do that hoping that somebody from out of town will come in to buy it because they have like the only one in nevada or something.

Somebody local will buy it for like 60k.

Perhaps, but it would never have the class that your wagoneer has. Mine has function, but yours has form in spades.

That is the one that I went to. 3.5 hours later my number was finally called. Got to the counter only to be told that the lady that called my number was new and didn't know how to do a title transfer. WTF?? I wound up waiting another 20 minutes for the lady next to her to finish whatever she was doing.

I played on the rocks with my old TJ, had fun, but went a different direction this time around.
