Learned a lesson and new name for my CJ7

I was removing some old bolts so I could put my new swing out tire carrier on and I had my fingers in the crossmember, when this little guy dropped down a little less than 2 inches from my hand, I think I will check for now on where I stick my hand. And my CJ7 is Black and red I think I will call it the black widow for now on. Also lucky that I had some PB blaster handy, but it is one hardy spider PB blaster and carb cleaner did not kill it outright.

I guess it's getting to be that time of year...............

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

My wife and i just bought our first house and while doing general cleanup of leaves and debris around the outside i found a black widow up between the porch and the house, since it was like 20 degrees out either she was already dead or not moving very fast..... regardless I looked like a mexican tap dancer on her for about the next 20 mins. (just to be sure).

After going around the house again i noticed a few "ulgy very sticky" webs but they had nothing in them.....

Looks like it is time to start paying attention and learning how to get rid of and avoid them....

i am almost certian i would end up shooting it or catching the jeep on fire if i saw that.

FYI lysol and a lighter is a great tool for the arachnophobic jeep owner

Only in America do you have the God given right to be loudly opinionated about something that you are completly ignorant of.

Unless I can identify it for sure I use foamy engine brite on them. If they have babies on their back it sticks them so they do not fly off everywhere and drops them pretty fast.

I had a big spider on the floor that I hit with starting fluid and it was still walking so I lit it on fire. It took another step on fire, it was a tough sucker.
