Its funny, I see more nice CJ's over the fence than I do on the road here.

You know what's funny, as soon as I saw the picture, I thought to myself, I wonder how he is always spotting these CJ's that are tucked away behind fences...LOL!

This one has some unique decals that I don't recall ever seeing before. Thoughts?

Will you have an opportunity to engage the owner of it to get the details?

The rate you're going, this one will be parked in your driveway next week...LOL!

Lol, did not harrass the owner on this one. It was on a road where all the houses are behind fences.

I wondering if the stickers and painted rims were a dealer thing.

Had a couple of boxes arrive today. My 2 replacement shocks from RE came in.

Also got this big box that came with some sweet goodness inside. I LOVE them much better then the non fitting shorties! Supposed to rain this weekend so no painting on shop. So much to get done before I can start the 360..... Time to get space trucking on some projects!

I "acquired" that light when I was 14ish. A car hit the pole and knocked it down about 8 blocks away from my house. Late that night a friend and I snuck out and dragged it home. Was broken in 2 pieces. My dad fixed it up and wires switches in the side with a plug so it works.

Back in the day, I would have done the same thing....taken it home. Stuff like that is pretty cool.

When we just started driving, a friend and I took one of those things that look like a metal sawhorse, that have a flashing light on them. They were used at roadside hazard spots (a big pothole, etc.). The light ran off of a big searchlight battery.

The legs fold, so we threw it into the trunk of his car. After about 3 days of driving around with this thing in the trunk, which was constantly flashing, we didn't have a clue what to do with it.

We brought it back to the original spot. Now, there were 2 there!

Glad to see you back at it on the 360 MoC. The big thing back when I was younger was to drive down the back roads and shoot road signs. Of course I'd never do that and guns scare me.

X1000

They are coming from BJ's offroad. I double checked the part number on the Thorley site and BJ's said they recently installed a set on a CJ with no issues. They are made for a CJ. Also said they would take them back full refund if the don't fit.

Fingers crossed. Spending this much on headers I will not modify them at all. Fingers crossed some more.

you sea it all started with 10 puonds of bbq pulled pork and a bunch of friends coming over to the house for a get together. Then cutting up a 5 frame with a torch. then turned in to excessive drinking and lighting of the fire pit. The somehow after that I found myself riding a skate board accross burning gas on the concrete in sandles. The it turned into pouring gas on the fire pit. then the gas can catchiog on fire and a unnamed fourm member runnign around with it not knowing where to throw it. all the while another friends wife ran for her life and forgot to see the concrete bench as she ran in to it and face planted. Love ya Carlete! Got to use my fire extenguister to put it all out. then more drinking. Glad its raning now so all the fire exteng powder will be washer away. Partys over!!! yall missed a good one. the grass will grow back i promiss baby! now just need to figure out how to sweet talk the wifey into soem snuggle time. think my head going to hurt. night
