You will probably beat me, I've got a few projects to finish while I have the motor out.

That is right, I forgot you are putting the 4.0 head on.

It will be interesting to see, I have a lot to do as well while the engine is out, have to clean up and paint the Tcase and I have to fix a bullet hole in my floor. As well going to have to clean and paint the firewall, and cut the new hole for the stick shift in the trans tunnel, so it is going to be a bit of an involved swap.

Bullet hole? I thought I told you not to shoot it out of anger.

When I bought it, it had been being used as a hunting jeep. The hole was already there, along with a lot of other crap I am going to have to fix. Some people should not be allowed to own jeeps, had I not bought this thing it would have probably never run again because the suspension was completely toast.

This is one of the things I don't get about texas, they call driving out into a field, and sitting in a really tall chair all day drinking beer while waiting for an animal to come to you so you can shoot it hunting. It is not very sportsman like if you ask me.

I find it really Ironic that doing this same thing in Montana is illegal, you are not allowed to hunt from a vehicle there.

When I was a kid I'd go deer hunting with my dad in central texas. We'd drive about 2 miles from the campsite to a hunting area, then walk for about 30 minutes to a spot that my dad deemed workable. We'd sit there in the dark, cold and quiet, backs against a tree, trying not to move or make noise. Hopefully around the time the sun came up, we'd spot a deer. It was tough for a kid to sit still all morning but it was worth the reward! We had good times and the only technology needed was a good rifle and about 5 layers of clothing to keep warm.

That is hunting.

For me hunting trips usually involved getting up stupid early driving way out in the boonies, walking in a couple of miles, and spending much of the day silently hiking from one vantage point to the next looking for something to shoot. Often times that included having to hump through knee deep snow.

The great thing about hunting in the snow is that you can use a sled to get your kill out, and when you have 7-900 lbs of moose or elk to get back to the truck, that makes a huge difference.

I have just never been a fan of hunting from a truck or a blind.

On a side note, all 3 or our jeeps are the same color. That is kind of funny.
