Almost did a bad thing

I came way to close to killing my CJ5. I had convinced myself that I needed to be longer because I was getting killed on the climbs last year by Cherokees, 4Runners, ect. I had a 72 Commando body just about bought to switch my drivetrain in to. Then a visit to a long time wheeling buddy straightened me out. It seems you can only recall what you can't get over, not what you can. He reminded me of several obstancles I hopped over (Plumbers crack in Livingston for instance) that required much dragging or a bypass for his 4Runner. And snaking through trees and narrow paths only to turn around and wonder where everyone behind me went. I went out to the garagre and appologized to my little 5 and installed some new spring bushings and a new set of front shocks just to make him feel better. I guess my point is the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence but your grass might be pretty good too.


Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
