It wasn't a CJ.
It was BS, (billy stupid) that's not the intent of the BS.
It wasn't a Trip.

I gotta go, the YJ to CJ has to be done by May 5th.

Later Dude, Bill
I thought it *was* finished, so what's left and what's happening in May?

You may have missed the Dana 35 problem inner pinion. Bearing rollers lying in the bottom of the diff.
Also the Dana 20 that I'm replacing the 35 with has 3.31 gears, front YJ is 4.10. So I'm changing the front to the CJ Dana 30. This means changing the TC to a Dana 300. YJ's are drivers side drop TC.

May 5 is a dig on Scott

You know Bill since your south of I 80 I was very surprised that you didnt use pigs to pull you Heep away from the ravine. As you stated before they pull sleds in the winter and the lead pig is named Hans and does the pulling with an apple in the mouth!

For starters its not winter here south of I-80. Its like early spring .I had some pigs once, darn those Babyback ribs were good. Pork fat rules Dude.
Its only south of the Mason-Dixon line where they pull sleighs. They don't like cold snow, between there little cloven toes.

Man, if it doesn't involve the Navy Pier, Cubs, Bears, Sox, or the "L". LSD, Oprah, or whatever else you Chi town people do, things need to be explained.
Sorry I forgot, you lived in Califorina for 30 years. Nuf said.

Pictures of what I did for the DD.

Bill Bill Bill the way I see it is you move the Mason Dixon line at will. One day your a sophisticated urban dweller and the next "Yall" act like yer from the south like Shipper. This movement of the line causes your computer to act evil (cause it dosent know which operating system to use, normal or hillbilly lite) It also cyrstalizes metal and causes it to become more brittle. Which is why you win so many awards for breaking things.

I'm a very versatile individual. I'm able to adapt to whomever I'm chatting with, be it the low lifes I see on calls, or hi-falution types like yourself.
I don't have a clue where the M-D line is, this means I can adjust it by my mood.

And what do you expect, the Mrs and I have 2 YJ's. If I were to come visit you, we would drive one of them, Visiting Scott, it would be the Diesel pickup, the "89" 4" lifted 35" tire, GMC JIMMY, or the 1957 Jeep pickup.
Only one of which can be driven on Lake Shore Drive.

Bill

Maybe Scott will train them pigs of his to pull a sleigh.

Hey Bill if you all go to moving the Mason Dixon line you'd better get Gmakra in on it. He's pretty good at siferin all of that stuff, just look at how he's got ole Scott tarckin staright as an arrow.

Then again maybe you better leave it alone, we're close enough to another civil war already!

For your viewing enjoyment.

2 of the guys are friends and coworkers of mine, and are brothers, one of whom was a Navy seal for 8 years This was filmed on the Illinois river.
There is something about a aluminum boat and a outboard motor that make these fish come alive, the closer to shore, the worse they are.
This is the 2nd video they did, here's the first one. Plans are in the works for a 3rd.



Bill


For more videos about the eradication of the these fish go here. http://www.redneckfishingtournament.com/

This happens about 50 miles south of me. If you have a pontoon, or a jon boat, drink beer, this is the place for you. Check out some of the videos.

What do you think? I would like to shoot the fish with a shotgun from the back of a boat.

Probably about as fun as casting a surf rod loaded with treble hooks at low flying geese
