Is this the same one that I saw when I came to visit? OR....have you started another build while I've been away?

So, how do you like the 3.6? Why can't you get the half cab conversion now? And...I have been busy with my 01 Dodge p/u.....I love my truck as much as my JK.

Love the 3.6 so far!! And the half cab and bulkhead were made by Avenger Supercharger. They seemed to have gone out of business. Out of the blue I might add!! I love the dodges too!! I had a Small Hemi a while back. And my company car for a year was an early 3/4 ton diesel!

I've been curious about the 3.6, good to hear you like it....right now, I'm at 103k+ on my 3.8 JK. Mechanically, it's still running and driving like new, the interior is not holding up as well.
The driver seat bottom has been replaced, and is shot again...the back seat is bad too, and my two dogs are the only ones to ride there. I'd like to get seat covers, but the neoprene won't hold up to the dogs.
The JK would have more miles, but since I've restored my p/u, I've been driving it a lot...5.9 V-8, single cab/two door.....it's very quick, no weight, but I tend to drive it like an old fart!
Did you have a day off today?...surprised that you answered during the day.
The forum sure seems to have changed since I was on here...

Ha..I haven't even taken any pics of my truck yet, mainly because of the long winter. I will though....I had it sandblasted and sprayed with an industrial coating called "Full Metal Jacket", much thicker than Linex, had it on my old YJ and slid into a tree, bent the sheetmetal until it got to the Full metal Jacket and stopped the bend. You can literally hit it with a hammer.

I also got some Dura-Tracs on my other work truck, 245/75/17's for $156.00 each (gov. contract) and was wanting them for my truck, without the gov. contract, they were over $300 each. Very nice tires, love 'em, too pricey though...I bought Mastercraft MSR's for my truck. Are you still running Dura-Tracs on your JK?

It's snowing here today....I'm tired of winter Bro...

I'll be 54 in Sept......so I understand!

I will probably not be on JF much in the future, not sure I like the new forum and the tech forum is mainly a rehash of the same old stuff.....
