Took my wife for a nice evening drive. She hated it. Hair blowing in her face. All she can smell is exhaust. I hardly notice it. Only the occasional wiff. Too bumpy. Not a caddy but it doesn't ride like a brick either. I guess she just doesn't understand.

Oh well. She bought for me. I will always have that to hold over her head.

Both my ex-wives hated topless vehicles. Neither one would even get in one. Now if I ever get a G/F, she had better love riding around topless.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

That might be asking for a little too much, but you might find one that loves riding around in a topless jeep.

I had a small leak on the rear Dana 44, so I took both axle shafts out and inspected. The driver side was leaking from the seal but the outer side so I just put rtv. But the other side is leaking around the seal and shaft, looks like I will be ordering new bearing and seal kit. Plus the shoes and drums were covered in gear oil, should i chenge the shoes? Also is there suppose to be fluid in the shaft tube of a Dana 44? Also moved the rear seat back 5 inches for more leg room. And last thing was wire brushed, primed, and repainted the passenger handle. All was done a work, I love having a garage and all the tools you could think of.

Worked on my Dad's CJ5 for awhile, then he took it for a 45min test drive.

Then I tore my front axle apart on the CJ7 and started installing the new gears/locker.

Fixed the upside down carby spacer (dang PO), made an exhaust bracket, and some other odds and sods then buddied up with a JK and went here
