Spent 4 hrs cleaning up the work truck. Tried to post a pic from my phone but sight says its too big. I don't think I can resize them on the phone, any of you smart college kids know?


It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.

Cause I still gotta get this under armor on since my wedding plans have now changed and money isnt too big an issue right now.
We just had another shop put up. Its a Morton and its sweet. May want to check them out.

Or use a resize app. I use SimpleResize. Also, if you take pictures from Camera+ you can choose to save them as a smaller size.

Only if you are ok with 2WD. On the bright side, being that they only have to run 45 mph, they have some low rear end gears.

Here is what you need to get started. http://ncschoolbussales.dpi.state.nc.us/ Somewhere in the $2000-5000 range will take a bus home. Steal the driveline or chop the chassis down to fit the YJ body and scrap the rest.

Granted they have around 230,000-260,000 miles on them. Skip the 8.2l V8s. The 466DT is a great engine but a mite bit heavy.

I'd love to get my hands on a school bus. It wouldn't look like a bus by time I was done.
