Yes it is. I spent a bunch of time looking at it with all the other Michigan experts. No one found anything to complain about. Very nice rig. I actually asked them if they would take my jeep back with them and start a swap. He gave me a funny look and said "no".

Or wait...

My TJ, and my JK for your YJ and your truck...

It's a great truck, Jim, but since I've already demonstrated that I can't drive it I'll have to stick to my DD on Mall Terrains for now.

At the moment, I'm simply burned out and not looking forward to a body swap. As the jeep has been built bigger and beat harder, my wife no longer enjoys going. My kids are married and have lives that don't include wheeling. So, I get stuck wheeling with all you dirt bags while my family is doing something else. It's taken some of the fun out of it[/QUOTE]

Good reason IMO. GLWS

John, you know I've never had more fun in my life than riding with you and Jess for 38 straight hours in a truck., then rooming with you guys for 6 days, and then another 38 hours back home.

your club offered to help with the body swap, Nick is offering his hoist for a weekend. Sounds like you should just park it for a few months and when spring comes you'll get the fever again....in the meantime while my Jeep sits axleless I'd be happy to keep it washed and waxed for you up here bring the stickies too when you drop it off

Good advice, I can't agree more.

Jim, I know you were busy with Snofari and then KOH. It is a lot back to back. Just sit on it for a couple months.

I don't think anyone that went to KOH has touched their rigs. I did a compression test on mine and didn't even bother putting the spark plugs back in yet. I haven't even bothered unloading it from the toter into the garage, I did the compression test right in the toter. We're all burnt out.

pretty much exactly what I told him. A group of us in SMR are going to do a work weekend to help the process along too. We should get some t-shirts made up like "save the old mans jeep" or "help the elderly wheel" or something catchy like that!
