HA !! Thought that was you. I waited for a bit in the parking lot, but had to head out -- wife is sick, and she was waiting on me to get home (I stopped and bought her some flowers so I could get some bonus husband points.)
Nice work with the flowers. I was picking up some steaks and was having trouble deciding on a rib-eye vs. a new york strip. Finally ended up going with one of each.

Just as a side note, have you ever tried Target's steaks? It's a bit further trip, but their prices are usually MUCH MUCH better than Safeway, and the steaks are very very good.


So when is the BBQ at your house? I'll bring beer.

So you guys both live near the Mirage Sports bar (I think that is the name of the place?) I've gone in there a couple of times to shoot some pool and play some darts, and stumbled back out.

I haven't tried Target, but I will now.

Maybe a BBQ late this summer...hopefully we'll be in a house by then. Somebody has to pick up where Jay and Melody left off...

We should schedule a get-together one night at one of the local bars. I'm near Kipling and Bowles.

Spent the weekend, well Sunday, under the heep. Tore the rear locker out and replaced the air sleeve and replaced the o-rings. On an 8.8, the sleeve is pressed on inside of the bearing, which makes getting it off a pita to say the least! Had to get a large bearing puller and grind the little grabby things(technical term) down a lot to get it to fit.
Replaced most of the fluids.
Getting the "list" done before my trip to Moab in the middle of April.
Still have the exhaust manifild to replace and a new transfer case skid plate to install too.

I noticed when I pulled the passenger side axle out that the emergency brake was caked up with dried mud??? (the 8.8 has a set of cute little drum brakes on the inside of the disc rotor for the e brake.)
Wonder where that came from? Thought it was sort of sealed...
I hate mud...


The Jeep is now wheelable!!! Whoo hoo
Anyone up for a bit of snow wheeling/bashing soon? (Yankee hill?)
