I can vouch for that, that waggy will flat out cruise. Maybe like he said, go up hills in reverse!

It was nice meeting you guys finally, and do ya think if I get a rubicon sticker for my hood it would help get me to the money shot at the top of the mountain? time to start saving for some upgrades...........

Ha. but Terry doesnt have the sticker....

So i was going to go see Total recall with him and his woman. I hop in the jeep and start it right up, but it wont idle. WTF?!! it ran perfectly smooth under throttle, but would not could not idle. it would stall out.

10 minutes late i "readjusted" all of the idle stuff on the carb and its perfectly fine. maybe something got clogged or gummed up? Weird. it ran fine on the way home.


Sigh, old iron is tempermental. its 100% fine now that i turned 3 screws on the carb.

time for EFI?

Time for a vortec conversion?

Time for a cummins 4bt conversion?!

It's 2" ID, not OD, right? When can I get it, and what do you want for it?

Interesting things I learned this weekend:
If you drink too much during the day, it is possible to get a hangover without going to bed.
I am not 21 anymore.

So I finished taking off most of the paint off of my 1 ton steering that I got from my friend already has new TRE's and now I just need to find someone that has a reamer, 5/8" bit and a 11/16" bit so I can drill out my knuckles and install these.

I'm painting these bad boys green to stand out against my black ZJ.

Do any of you guys know how to do this (have the bits) to install these??
