Ha! Maybe so but I just don't have the time or the patience. I probably don't have the skill either but we can analyze that another day.

I'll run out and get some grade 8 bolts. I know what to look for now. The bumper is staying and for the two times a year this thing sees dirt it should get me by. Besides, the groups I sign up for mostly just drive down dirt roads and we drive around pot holes. I'D HATE TO SCRATCH IT!!!
Oh don't forget my torque converter in front of all those transfer cases!

I coulda got you a great deal on a CSF 3 row radiator. It is pretty easy to install yourself and you would have been in under 200 bucks. Shoulda called!!

when they were testing the radiator after the flush, it wouldn't hold any pressure, so i was kinda stuck there. i guess i could have towed the jeep back home and did it myself. i was watching the guy install it and i'm pretty sure i could tighten up a few bolts and connect a couple hoses.

got any other deals mr clifford?

That's one thing I have leared over the years. When you go to get one thing done and they tell you you need something else extra either go somewhere else or tell them you will bring it back so you have time to check around and check on prices for parts elsewhere. I paid 500 bucks for a brake job when I was 17! not no more!!

hurry up and get the order started before Scout changes his mind.

i also want lots and lots of chrome. i heard it improves traction on trails.

the chrome wouldn't match your jeep

it really improves traction when you start slipping on the curbs

that's alright. I only bought small stuff. New steering wheel, quick release, inline cooler for my steering, new K&N filter, and a new dipstick. No biggy.
