Other house is sold, kid 2 is still in Jan, shop is not built, jeep skid plate is in back of truck.......will be drilling holes during lunch. Fortunately I don't wheel hard enough to break anything so maintenance is kept to a minimum. I'll be ready one way or another.

Because I still owned a 2nd house that was taking $$$$ out of my account each month. No 2nd house now but I have to put money back where the sale of said house took away. Thank you housing market of 2000's vs now

Borrowing one. I'm going to have to hide money in it because the owners won't let me pay to rent or buy tires or anything. They're great people!!

I'm installing some of that magic canadian sliding board stuff to my skid plate.

I was out of town for work monday so I brought it with me to the hotel parking lot

I scabbed it out of 2 pcs that I got for the cost of beer and food..........which I still have to deliver. See if ALRO plastics or Schupan will ship drops to your work. Schupan in Kzoo has cheap drops if you pick up in person and it's on their website
