"But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." - Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1782
Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.

Saturday I peeled back my license plate mount on the back, wanked my back flare, cracked that stupid piece of plastic that you take off for rockers, destroyed the bead on my front tire, and smashed in my muffler. All minor and all well worth it.
The worst break I have had was a long time before I got the tow rig and trailer. I went wheeling with a a friend and his family along the Verde River. Great camp spot and on the way out we got to playing on different lines. Well the rocks broke that I was on and it pulled both the drivers side ball joints apart and broke the front axle. It took a while to get it back together and limp it home.
In Moab on my first trip SOA on 35's with an 8.8 in the rear and a traction bar again no tow rig or trailer. First day spun the 8.8 rear tube. We worked for two days just to get it so I could drive it home. 6 degree shim on one side a 2 degree on the other. When I got home I bought the tow rig and trailer.
I refuse to belong to any group that would have me as a member.

On my first trip with my jeep I got stuck in mud, burned out my clutch, fried the starter and got a flat tire (somehow). Hasn't seen the road/trail since. I've replaced the starter and she runs, but won't move without a new clutch (at least I think that is the problem???)
YJ slid down a muddy hill into a tree and rock combo. Not only did it result in me getting an AJ's man. glass front end (and a weekend off work to put it on), I also got a ticket for an expired ORV sticker...
