    Good grief I'm 6'2" and feel like a munchkin with all this 6'6-6'7 talk! I enjoy the manuals on my CJ's, but I've gotta say my old YJ had the Torqueflite 999 in it and I liked it for daily driving and the boat ramp. Keep us posted on what you end up doing with the drunk ex-gf. Sound like the...

    Kim- You got me at the hard labor... This is sounding like punishment. Time for me to come up with more excuses!! Seriously, it's encouraging to see you still at it at 74 years young. My 83 year old dad just did some serious work on a farm tractor a couple of months ago, so maybe there is a...

    CJ7- A couple of years ago during a truly crappy bad back event (they are all starting to run together), for the first time in my entire life I drove a Jeep (in this case, my Wagoneer) to my buddies shop and let them do the rear main seal. I just had no desire to lay on my back with oil...

    walkerhoundvm's rebuild thread

    ^^^This! I remember knocking out my CJ5 in a couple of months (loads of engine/bodywork/paint) when I was in my 40’s. Endless energy. Then one day I was putting one piece axles in another Jeep and blew my back out. Now on the late side of my 50’s, it takes me FOREVER to do anything...

    I’m selfishly happy to see you continue spending money on your rig. This means you’re less likely to sell it now! :geek:

    Tammy Scrambler Gets a Facelift

    Sweet mother of quick work! Good grief, that’s amazing how fast you’ve moved on this. That color is fantastic. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    New Scrambler owner! YeeHaa!

    Anyway, I got to thinking about powder coating bolts. Yes, it’s tough paint, but it’s apt to chip when you put the sockets to it. Which had me thinking “why didn’t I just strip them and give them the black oxide OEM finish? Out of boredom, I was staring at the transmission tunnel plate screws...

    New Scrambler owner! YeeHaa!

    So last weekend we (me and my wife along with a contingent of other friends) decided to make our annual pilgrimage in our boats from Charleston SC to Beaufort SC. Always a fun trip and we generally turn that poor town known for The Big Chill and Forrest Gump upside down. This year was no...

    Man, that bums me out that you’re considering selling; you’ve been on here and JeepForum for a long time. I still remember your rig profile pic being in primer grey. I’m sure whatever decision you make will be the right one for you. I had to chortle a bit at your pedal repaint. I just did...

    Meet Red, my 81 Restomod Build

    I have nightmares about the cowl seal... And will again now that you reminded me.

    Meet Red, my 81 Restomod Build

    It’s ridiculous that we have to go through this mess with aftermarket parts. How hard can it truly be to make a proper reproduction??? Remember the replacement dash indicator lights that were the wrong color? Ugh!

    Meet Red, my 81 Restomod Build

    What a pain! This reminds me of the Cobra reproduction front fenders that fit like garbage. I’m not sure if Dawn or Jody Abbott have been on the site lately, but if anyone has them, they “might”. Want me to text them? PS- I desperately need a rear passenger NOS flare. Send a brotha that...

    Meet Red, my 81 Restomod Build

    Randy- I just got myself caught up on the build and MAN, this is good. I realized about 3/4’s of the way through that, if you have email alerts set up, your inbox is getting hammered with all of my “likes”. LOL. Got a good chuckle at the boxes of shifters you have laying around. Your garage...

    Happy Memorial Day

    I'm obsessed with the CJ3-a (and the MB equivalent). I've been pining for one of these! I really like what the owner has done here. A good reminder of what the long weekend is really about.
