You can tow a trailer with 700 lbs of gear down 60 miles of beach and never get stuck but your buddies big truck has to get snatch strapped out every few miles. (This past weekend)

Yep. Got slammed about 2 am Sunday by that front. Tried to hold out till morning in 45 mph gusts but broke camp at 4 and started the trip back. It was a long trip to say the least but at least I was headed into the wind and I had my doors on. No sand in the cab once I started up the beach.

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.

When gas prices have soared to close to $5.00 a gallon. But you would still choose your CJ for that run into town rather than take the econo box out that gets double the mileage of the CJ.

Wow. 5.00. 3.60 here. I will prolly be choosing my cj to take to town over my Jk haha.

But when the autoparts store remembers who you are and what your working on. And tell you to bring it up an show them when your done building it up.

When your cj looks like this.

It was the only one that fit me just right. Got that hat from Mike Sherril at Edelbrock on Power Tour 2009.

Ok I will say it hear I guess.
Well I go to the rich kid school in my school district and a lot of the kids are real preppy and stuff like that. Bit we have this program there called aerospace and engineering which I am apart of and I'm on this team where we design and build a one seated electric car that we have to run for an hour on just two batteries at top speed (which is around 30mph) with hairpin turns and stuff like that on a quarter mile track. Well when we got to the race I was pretty much the crew chief that did all the work because I was wearing a camo hat. (I was a sophomore when all this happened and the rest were seniors). But since I was the one in the camo hat I was designated the redneck which I am kinda and I did all those repairs and such. And now I am the only one except for a couple others that are building a vehicle. And I am the only one building a lifted jeep which makes me one of the rednecks at school.
