    Times They Are A Changin'

    Congratz! They are the most rewarding PITAs EVER! My eldest just turned 12 and is begging for his own Jeep, and so are his 4 younger brothers, yet my wife keeps telling me we don't need any more vehicles... I don't agree, of course.

    it's a win in my book, been waiting for years for them to finally bring back a truck body style. I'm working the finances to get one, just wish they'd release the prices so I know how unrealistic it really is.

    7th Annual Secret Santa Gift Exchange Open!

    its imported from Ireland, first showed up in the US in 2017(I think) the red label is kinda sweet, but much smoother than their green or black 10 year, all three are single malt and aged in Bourbon casks.

    I am, whenever the garden lets me. Since we moved to our new place the gardenbeds have been very unproductive, but I'm working to get the soil amended to hopefully fix that problem.

    Definately gonna let him know about the forum. It's gonna be a hard one to replace, but one day I'll find another. And Dain I ain't going no where unless BW kicks me out, not on here nearly as much as I used to be, but I still lurk now and then and don't plan on changing that.

    Gonna probably regret it

    sold the 8 today. Tough decision, but just never used her. Went to a good friend who was the reason I got into Jeeps to start with. It's been a fun ride, but time to move onto something more practical that'll actually get used. Kinda feels like losing a part of the family. Got a lightly modified...

    Why I need to keep buying Jeeps...

    At 5:36 am December 28 2017 we welcomed our latest addition to the Chaotic Connolly Funny Farm weighing in at a whopping 7lbs 12oz and 21 inches little man #5 Finn Joseph Connolly. We are all home now and Momma Bear and Mr. Finn are doing wonderful.

    What's on your Work Bench?

    Nothing even remotely Jeep related at the moment. Bee hive that failed some time between November 1st and last week, gotta autopsy it and try to determine why it dies off...

    DIY Half Doors?

    Since the post about the uppers hdttm started has me thinking, which is not always a good thing. But I have a set of full doors that are kinda crappy and beat up pretty bad. Has anyone ever made a set of YJ/TJ half doors out of full hard doors that will work with a hard top and TJ uppers?
