Stress Relief

Well it's been 5 months since I've been able to drive my CJ, I ordered 4.5 RE lift and was unable to fit the springs due to the PO's fantastic welding skills, tried everything I could to get them fixed myself during my time off from work. Finally I gave up and took it to a "Jeep Specialist" at the end of August who assured me he would have everything in working order when I got back from work in October, 41 days later it's sitting in the same damn spot I parked it outside his shop, and today he tells me he plans on getting to it sometime this week. Unfortunately I leave for another 30 days of work next Monday. Sorry just needed to vent to someone who understands my pain.

Man, that sux. I'd take it elsewhere... just on principle. No excuse to have something sitting that long.
