The answer is in fact two! One before take off and one during flight.

I don't blame you. SLC is cool because in literally ten minutes you can be climbing to 10000ft and when you come back down, the land is FLAT!!!! Plus, on Sunday all the Mormons stay inside and don't leave. One day a week you get a ghost town! AND its less than 4 hours from Moab.

Wish I would have went with a Burb instead of the Hoe. As far as mufflers I've got a Magnaflow knock off on my 5.3 that I'm happy with. Sounds decent when you get on it, but the drone is almost non existent on the highway. You can barely hear it with the windows up, and not at all if the radio is on, or the HVAC fan is on high.

You have way too many original teeth to live near B'ham.

I got offered a job down there a number of years ago. But the money wasn't enough to live far enough away from that craphole and still afford to send my kids to private school.

The only redeeming part would have been living close enough to Morris Mountain to be able to go play whenever it was open.

Speaking of moving. I might be soon, but the jeep is going up for sale if I do. May be taking over my FIL's house for the taxes he didn't want to pay.

Re: Important

Melissa just applied for an assistant management job at the good tire shop in town. It pays well, most likely has benefits, has a good schedule and she is a good fit for what they are looking for....benefits alone would cut $900 a month off healthcare expenses. She still hasn't quit the hotel...she has had several meetings with the owner about all the issues. One of those included the health i inspector...she is taking steps in case she has to
quit or gets fired...

I hope she gets the tire store job...

I am still around lurking. I bought a 98 XJ Limited yesterday, gotta pick up tomorrow. It is just for parts so I can get the 97 back going. No big plans but to part it out and get the grocery getter back in the rotation. I am looking daily for the next "buy it, wheel it, sell it" WF rig. Last year worked out great and I made money on that deal!
