I took Clay's Maxxis Mudders and put them on my 7. I took my Wild Countrys off my 7 and put them on my 3B. Thought I'd post a pic of my 7 with his tires.

Note- The Maxxis Mudders are physically 33.5" tall with hardly any tread left. Does that mean they were originally 35s? The Wild Country tires have nearly all of their tread and are 32.25" tall, even they say 33 on the side.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Wifey is sitting right here. She says "No". Sorry Fellas. Not in the doghouse now, but certainly COULD be later.

Yeah the 315/75/16" is listed as a 35. That's what I was running on my F250 before I got rid of it.

I'm looking to purchase a 15x8.5" aluminum mod wheel with gold anodized center.

You go from in and out of the doghouse more than any feller I ever seen. We're starting to think you're bad.

Yep. Wonder if he's been in trouble all week.

Hey Fellers! Would you believe I am about to start on my own Jeep!? It's true. I was out messing around with it today, and I decided this is where I am going to start. The windshield frame! My plan is to get it driveable and then, well, drive it! Immediate needs are a clutch (already have the kit thanks to Bill), reassembling/reacquiring the parts robbed from it for Clay's Jeep, including reinstalling the intake (again, thanks to Bill) and the headers. I need to get another alternator (mine was new, but it ended up on Clay's Jeep!). I also have to reassemble and install my power steering pump, because it, too, was sacrificed for Clay's Jeep. I have all the parts for it, just gotta put it together.

The windshield is rusty, and I don't know how bad it is going to be. Initial investigation shows that it is still solid, but there is too much rust, IMO. So I expect some pinholes. I will probably use a glass or epoxy material to fill the holes. I don't plan to cut out any metal and weld at this time. Later, after I have enjoyed it for awhile. It is not getting a paint job right now. Gone be uh ugly Jeep! Future plans include another bench seat, possibly a 60/40 split with a center console... Ranger? S-10? Something along those lines if I can find one.

Anyway, here's a couple of starting pics. The Torx head bolts don't want to come out. I will try to find a bit to fit my impact driver... that should do it. They are soaking in Blaster as best I can get it onto them.

If the Torx don't come out after a half dozen hits with the impact, either drill the heads off, or weld a 1/2" washer to the Torx. Then weld a 3/&" nut to the washer. You don't want to strip the captive nuts inside the frame.

Got a little Freebie today!! All I had to do was take it down. Sister lost her house to foreclosure. Wish I had the money to buy it. It's a nice little house on 5 acres, surrounded by farm fields. It's yours for ~$75,000. House is dirty, but in excellent shape. Wood floors, new tile, new well... what a shame. Now she lives in the "projects" in low income housing.


Here is my work crew... my two youngest. They did well. DQ for them!
Here is a wooden shed I can get if I can figure out how to load it and get it the 20 miles to my house. 8'X10" outside measurement.
Here is the carport on the trailer. Took about an hour to disassemble. Now to figure out where to put it.
And the lost house.


You discover the mettle of a man when you see how he overcomes adversity. It seems like every day that some inconvenience, some minor, some major, slaps you upside the head, and tries to bring you down. When you make an effort to defeat that problem you always win! Never have I been left without resources or strength or health. I will always pay my bills. I will always live within my means. I will conquer everything that causes me discomfort. I will treat people with respect. God gives me the Grace, and I give Him the Glory! Amen.
