Re: Important

well nvm about the crown vic 8.8. found a set of jk axles (30 and 44) 30 is sleeved, gusseted with alloy ball joints and chromo shafts and new hubs, rear axle has chromos and they were both re-geared to 4.88. All for about what i would have spend buying a 9", adding discs, chromos and gears. ill still have to get a set of perches but that solves my dilemma.

Jokingly I've said my tires are 30 years old. A friend who claims the Dick Cepeck MUDs I run are from 1987.

Re: Important

I deal with Semi truck tires and they have 4 numbers for the date. I don't think that is the date.

Re: Important

38th week of 1997. Before 2000 tires had 3 numbers. First 2 numbers are the week they were made and the 3rd number is the year of the decade they were made, as tire were not ment to last longer then 10 years. Most, not all tires made in the 90's had a triangle after the 3 numbers. After 2000 they went to the 4 digits but still week/year made format. Thats what I've always gone by.

Re: Important

Stopped at an Out Back near St. Pete. for a beer and there is a helicopter landing in the grass next door. Apparently rich people do things like that. The lot was full of gawkers. I walked by like I see it every day. F that show off.

Re: Important

No shit, must be something in the air. We drilled the holes n set the poles for Case's tree house this week. We are keeping it simple, 8x8 and 8 ' off the ground. Using a tree that is a "V" and I set 2 legs 8' off it.

They replaced the telephone poles by me and I had them lay 5 of the old ones in my yard. Plans are to make a fort/ swing set out of them. Just haven't started on it yet.
