Nice fit. Don't lock it though, somebody will just tear it up getting into it. Man I love that color contrast between the windshield frame and dash.

It gets locked everyday. You're not going to beat it apart. You could certainly steal it though!

You apparently haven't seen a Fireman use a axe and a haligan tool.

This is a awesome tool, Ive forced quite a few front doors with one.

You should bolt it down, so it isn't a projectile in a accident!

Nah... I just don't have much to talk about. Between two jobs and the family I'm... I'm... well, busy! I have been concentrating on Fallon's XJ. We're at that point where everything you do is MAJOR accomplishment. You remember how you'd lay in bed thinking about finishing something? That's me right now on the XJ! I'm completely stoked about the bastard pack spring lift and relocation brackets. All I can think about is getting them on his XJ and seeing what I end up with. Fixin to go out and weld gussets, then prime/paint. Ironically, there is virtually NO feedback on the Cherokee section of this forum. That's a HUGE disappointment! So I joined another forum! Cherokee Forum. That's where I've been. I will keep posting results over here as well, just in case SOMEONE has a need for my info. But I'm getting critiques "over there", and that's what I need.

I check in over here just to rag you, Bill, George, Matt, Jim, Bill, Chris, MoC... pretty much everybody!

Hey Bub... there's a full moon somewhere at 12:00!

I thought you might enjoy this marquis sign. It is outside a local truckstop. They are rebuilding the place from the ground up, and they have a little modular for a store. I pulled in for some red diesel and snapped the pic. This little hick town is moving up!!

Shoot, Chris... you know country boys don't buy nuthin!




Painting the hood on the Astro van today. Got it in primer. Hope to finish it tomorrow... if it don't rain.

I think the input shaft bearing on the T176 is going out. How hard is that to change?

Lawn mower is broke. Yard looks like a jungle.

Ordered rims for Fallon's Cherokee... Soft 8s. He likes those.

Guess I'm getting ready to pull my Jeep off the road.
