Well I am headed back up to Conroe. My wife has cleaned out our bank acct. and headed back to Oklahoma. It looks like I will be divorced x2 soon. On the bright side, I will be able to save more money for another Jeep.

I feel for ya man. Sounds like your better off. Now marry a Jeep and live happily ever after

yeah well, a 17 year old can tear up a manvel.

I'm just lucky I never rolled my rig or wrecked it before I sold it.

Unfortunately, like most hobbies, this is an expensive sport with expensive toys.

Those of us who don't have mula to burn, sometimes priorities throw us on the sidelines for a while, then it's tough to get back in. However, we bring a lot of experience and appreciation to the sport when we do come back.

I'm hoping to get back inside a roll cage very soon. I also have a few buddies that had to shift their focus to other things...work, family, cash flow, etc. We just gotta stick together and stay tuned.

Things like this forum and my buddies help keep the dream alive. This way I never really left the sport, and when I get back on the trails, I'll have more fun, more friends.......and more to offer.

In response to........"Now, when you find one, you can work on it all night long without someone bitchin at you to COME INSIDE!!!! you worthless @$$hole, all you do is work on that stupid JEEP, blah, blah, blah "

I'm not saying that all wives or girlfriends complain like this, The truth is, it's impossible to be successful and enjoy what we do without a huge amount of support from the people we love. You just gotta find the right one, and balance the wheelin' stuff with all the other stuff.

Way to go John, things usually happen for a reason.

Yo Mark!!! Good to here from you.

I've been meaning to call and see what's been kickin'. Congrats on the square lights. A Cajun buddy of mine lifted his 91' for $40 by taking a few leafs out of a set of chevy springs and slipping them into the YJ springs. He posted a write up to his club, now they are all doing it. I'm thinking about using his idea on a spring over.

Bonsai is running good, needs a lot of work though. The motor has about 1 season left, steering box leaks, brake line twisted and broke where it splits over the rear axle, and the front axle just sounds sick. I'm gonna keep the 4-banger and rebuild it, I need to rebuild the front and rear and re-gear to 4:88's, redo the suspension, do a full cage, and add some tubing on the corners. I'll need your help with the last 4 items Ofcoarse I gotta get Bonsai home first I'm glad you remembered to build that part, I'll pick it up soon.

It'll all come together.......in due time I guess

BTW - You guys gonna be at the shoot out I may take a small group, even if I am just a spectator.
