You know you drive a TJ when you have the parts for the mod, the right tools for the job, a BFH & still need a Sawzall to get the job done!

So last night I was getting gas on my way to the bar and I had a friend in his civic try to tell me he could out run me in a quarter mile, I laughed and bet him that not only would I out run him in a quarter mile but I'd pull at least one tire off the ground doing it.. Needless to say I drank free all night and he now knows what 4.56's, a 5 speed and detroit lockers can do

Finished installing transmission in son's YJ. Started to replace rear shocks. Going to have to cut a bolt off tomorrow. I am getting good at cutting bolts off of Jeeps, unfortunately.

Thought I'd teach the girlfriend to drive the jeep (5speed).... Her daddy's got a 99' TJ (5speed) and got me to buy mine. But I should have know there was a reason he never lets her drive it. Darn near blew out the clutch. We did an accidental burn out, got some whiplash.. Hm list goes on.. But god I love her and never let her see my frustration. I think she was more mad about not getting a hang of it that I was about my baby (my TJ) haha.
