Looks like Bill needs a Shiner or three as well, you are a good man

Take a break Scott, write a list of the remaining items and post it up, I bet you are a lot closer than you feel....

Then on Monday, we will tow it to the garage and have some bonding time and declare ourselves "lunatics" for taking on a rehab project.

Every truck I ever drove amongst cattle was so banged up that hitting a tree would never have been noticed! Never figured out the connection between bulls and truck beds, and why they are compelled to bash 'em! Good times...

Sounds like you guys are going to have a big time. Armstrong steering with skinny tires was almost like having power steering! Have fun Scott...

I ain't in a bad mood, just apathetic!!

That's the RACK, from back in the day, way back, that's how the head Kerrdog and the little dogs got so tall, Beth uses it a a "time out" machine. Scott used to be 5'6". Now he's 6'2" . I guessing Scotty spent a lot of time on it.

As I understand , it's also good for shrinkage in the colder wetter months. at least that's what Scott says. I personally think its BS. He must be preping for Montana.

That is AJ's homemade 50 ton woodsplitter. Not done in the pic, but done now. He clamped my frame to the I-beam and beat the crap out of it!

Scott, your list is longer than I expected but should be a few days at the most...however, I know that Jeep's don't work that way

Thats what I thought but it's HUGE! looks like you could split fence rail with that thing.

Skerr! You changed your avatar! That list might seem long but if your todo is short enough to be put on a list...you are in good shape.

Building out a Jeep is like trying to smother a fire with twenty-dollar bills. You just never have enough at once to put it out...

IIRC, AJ told me it would split a 48" or 60" log. Can't remember which one though. Still, a 48" cylinder is pretty hefty. It's in operation, all painted up, and looks very good. But you would have to know AJ, whio has been integral in out build, always showing up when we really needed help... like he has some kind of sixth sense. He is a neighbor and a very good friend.

No... I'm from the REAL Florida. As is Kevin White (mopar346). Not a transplant. Living in the last bastion of the once-greatest-state in the Confederacy!

That sounds good, but I am moving w-a-a-a-y slow! Why is that you reckon? I cannot get in gear to finish this build. I keep pulling it out of the shop and driving around the yard! What a MOW-ron...




AJ fell from a ladder yesterday and went to the hospital by ambulance. He is okay!! He has a split-level house with his shop being in the side of a hill. You can drive around the back and into the shop. On the shop side, the house is 3 stories tall, because it is on the latter side of the hill. AJ has a deck at the 2nd and 3rd levels. He was constructing a "roof" out of tarps on the "big porch" (2nd floor) so he could do some work. He fell off one of his ladders onto the porch. Thank God! If he had gone over the railing...

He didn't remember falling off. He dislocated his shoulder. He is home and recovering. This man has not completed God's work yet! HE has a plan for AJ! Amen... Ya'll lift up AJ Please.
