Re: Important

I always ran GDR 3 core in my old jeep.

This jeep has a stock radiator, which is all I need for Walmart wheeling.

Nothing wrong with Walmart wheeling, I prefer Fleet Farm wheeling though.

Yeah, or American eagle. Same company. Their customer service was really good, but the swirl marks are pretty obvious.

Re: Important

no strip joints in my town, plus I'm getting too old for that. On a side note the new Wrangler rides like a caddy.

I wonder if the old jeeps had better studs. Never broke my older ones either. My 01 broke all four.

Drove around the end of the road where I will be moving and noticed an XJ with a front right tire that has been flat for over a month. Tempted to see what they are doing with it. Looks pretty rust free from the rear.

Going to apply for my carry license in two weeks. Some people have applied in Jan/Feb still haven't gotten it yet. Others are getting them in 7-14 days.

Ha! Sometimes I just get behind on this thread. Hell, it only takes a day or two to fall behind 4 pages.

Good poke, though!

He acted like he was fooling around without good results while he was switching the tanks. We had a good laugh when I started it back up and filled them in on the joke. They were not so happy.

Good to get away, but damn good to be back in the comfortable setting of couches and real beds.
