Yeah, something like that! I'm not going to wake up at 600 in the morning after working until 100-200 the night before. Going to bed at 300-400 and getting less than two hours sleep sucks. It sorta makes the trip like a french fry when it should be a pizza! Lol i would venture to wager that no one here could come home from work, and immediately go to bed and be asleep within 30 minutes. You have to decompress a bit and relax. I don't like trying to function while completely exhausted. Mistakes get made and jeeps get rolled or people get shot, then there's lots of paperwork and police involvement, and it just goes downhill from there! Getting up at 9-10, I can handle and function well enough to not roll a jeep or shoot someone!

I may be down for shooting. I usually go out the 95 north to just past corn creek road. But if you don't go early it gets crowded in a hurry. I've just been going to the county range because it is close and cheap. It also gets packed on the weekends.

Man I can sleep anywhere anytime. When I did valet I would work all night get home to load up my atv tear it up for 6 hrs. Get home sleep for a few hours and be fine. Of course I was 19 and could get away with it. I I did it now I would probably die.

Yeah, when I was 19-24, It was commonplace to spend all night cramming for chem and bio tests, and then get to class at 730-800 with like an hour of rest(not sleep) and do well on the test. Now, I can barely make it through my day. Haven't had a refreshing night's sleep in a few years. Insomnia sucks. It takes me about 45-60min to get to sleep, then I wake up 4-6 times a night, just to roll over and fall asleep again. Or I lay an think about random ish all night!

With me around, you would lose that wager. I can sleep pretty much anytime after about 5 in the afternoon. My problem with sleep comes from being on shifts my body just doesn't like anymore. I have a hard time sleeping at all when I am on mids because my body wants me to be asleep at night and awake during the day.

And today in Jeep news...check out the interior enclosure sealing out the fuel tank....AND.....rear outboard and shocks are in. Now for a brain teaser....I have 12" travel shocks......we were able to achieve 7.5" uptravel and 5.5" down. Man I can't wait to see what this thing can soak up with REAL tuned shocks.

LOL, gotta love the magic of shocks at an angle. Does the coil allow for that much travel too?

I set the roof back on the truck last night. I'm a little bit pissed off at myself but nobody will notice what I did if I don't point it out and I'll make it work, just isn't as slick as I'd hoped for. Kinda lame that the lack of space in my garage is actually a little bit what messed me up tonight. Oh well... Keep going and don't look back. LOL


BTW, it's not uncommon at all for me to get off work, walk in and kick on the cooler in the garage and then pass out right away for like 45-60 minutes. Then put on the grubby clothes and head out to the garage and work till bed time.

Actually I know the angle plays part in that some, but whilst having the 1st tune done, we removed the internal puck that robs you of 1" travel. Nothing spectacular just something I thought was cool lol. And yes coil is good through full range of travel without coming unseated.

Khris have you seen this? Cracked me up!

I'll have to watch it at home, I don't have sound on my work computer...

Internal puck? Talking like the spacer that's usually between the seal head and the actual piston itself?

I'm not 100% sure that's what it is, but yea I think it's the rod spacer.

That would make sense. Every shock I've ever had apart has always had that spacer in there and I've never really understood why but at the same time I've never had the guts to pull it out and see what what happens without it. If you don't have limit straps and you're shocks are your droop limiter I'd think you'd want some sort of spacer in there so that you're not slamming your compression valve stack into the seal head at full droop but even like just a 1/4" spacer I'd think would be enough to keep everything safe yet give your shock more travel. The only thing I could ever think of for reason of having that is to help keep the shaft straight and guiding correctly at full extension. It keeps basically a minimum distance between the seal head which is also your shaft guide essentially and the piston which would act as the second guide for the shaft. At full droop if those ended up really close to each other it would make it easier for the shaft to move sideways and bind. Hard to explain in words, pictures or napkin sketches would make it a million times more clear.
