Default Hmmm... The Jeep made me go broke....

I missed registration for the trail cleanup since I slept in, so I spent money instead. Got my flag mounted on the Jeep (to the hood latch mount), bought my ORV sticker and Fishing license, ordered the tow hooks, a recovery strap, and the teraflex budget boost, and picked up a window motor, since my rear driver side window died.


I am now broke.... Damn Jeeps, they always cost money one way or another.

Time before that, it was the ex-fiance that got $20,000 worth of stuff from me in a years time.

and the list goes on and on....

Im never gonna get ahead........

I guess next weekend I am gonna have to drive back to Flint to install the lift and hooks, since my APT complex HATES me working on my Jeep in the parking lot.

And to top it all off, I was driving around Grand Haven with the flag on to test the mount (I figured it would be really flimsy) The mount works great, BUT..... People were pointing and laughing....

Hell NO! I used to own an S-10. I will NEVER own a GM vehicle again.

I should have seen the light when I had my Camaro, but oh no, I had to get an S-10, and that is where my issues with GM and reliability REALLY started.

Also, don't drive around with your flag on . . .

You'll get the "Dune Fag" label. hehe.

I just wanted to make sure the bracket would hold up. The guys at Sandy Corners tossed it on there and bent it to the correct shape since all my tools are still in Flint , but I was not sure about the durability of it, since those flags catch the wind better than one would think.
