That would be a rock between the shoulders. Get it right.

BTW, I'm used to getting gas every 2-3 weeks, not once a week. Akk!

Replaced a blown out header gasket today. I still need to re-jet the carb, it's a bit big and running rich. Can't afford $400+ for the proper carb.

Drove it about 3 months and had no problems.

Nah. It's a driver for now. Down the road I can go nuts, but for now I just drive it and work out any bugs. I even registered it for the Lane Automotive show. It'll shine up decent and would be unique for what it is.

How much work does it take to shine up 10 years of dust?

A bath and a date with the vacuum.

Oh, the Jeep. I thought you were talking about something else.

The guy is finally letting these go, they come with 2005 16" Chevy aluminum 1/2 ton wheels. The tires are going on the XJ and selling the wheels.

Got the tires on. The guy I got them from said they were loud, I thought he was drinking the bong water. They are a bit loud but not objectionable. It rides better too.

If you want them, their yours. Otherwise they were going to get cut up and tossed Monday. If I know before 5, I can have one of the people put them outside the door, or else you're fubar til Monday.

I didn't look real close, but I thought they had quite a bit of tread on them.....................How do they look, and what is the actual size. I may just use them for rollers.

They look good but just getting thin. They did get me thru last winter with no problems. I figure they have approx 10-20% tread left. They are 265-75-16.
