spun caliper bracket on rear axle, broke line to caliper adapter, Thanks to Dune Coon and his kick ass skills he made me a banjo bolt thingy that work great all from scrap, , then get to Choppergar's for the night at 2am, only to get back up at 5AM TO LOAD JEEP ON TRAILER FOR IT TO BE TO BIG FOR TRAILER, so 10 miles on trip to meet up with Wakeboard76, to find my trans front pump seal leaking, so had to park it and go to Dog Party without. Had a good time playin winch bitch again and hitch hiking rides all day. Get back to jeep to try to limp it back to choppergar's only to try to leave with no tranny. Trans is toast. So fukc it, off to bed then get other trailer to load and bring it back. Ever till you I hate fucking jeeps? So time for the SBCtrain game. oH AND CHOPPERGAR FLOPPED HIS RIG! showing off again.

you the only guy I know that can wheel your rig up hill and put a hole in your gas tank on the top of tank inside your cargo area. wtf?

And I must say you have a good looking rig. And I'm so glad the next time I see you I will be signing your rig for fixing it. thank you please come again.

Front leaf springs out set of xj ones in place, need to relocate shackled.hanger.to front of bumper and then a set of boomerrang shackles for it should do it just right then swap tcase and mount up new shocks and should be back in business. :) no blessing this year though.

Obvious troll is obvious. Nobody tig's anymore unless they have it. A good mig is where it's at for the most part. I would like to learn tig but have nothing worthy of it so I mig.

Haven't gotten my rig up here yet but did manage to get out to wheel with some of the local guys. Hit one trail and lasted most of the day. lots of winching was done. Was one of the muddy trails, hitting up more rock trails later this month and looking forward to getting the rig up here and taken it out.





My girl had a blast riding in the XJ and she is a big fan of mud.

I rode with Todd in the jeep buggy and tasted some mud.
