So what's it like having new parts rain down upon you, when it appears you had a bottomless budget at the start of your build lol. I want cloudy with a chance of metal cloak fenders.

Another note is that any block used previously with steel cable should not be used with synthetic rope unless you change the pulley.

I wish it was a rain down from the heavens. It's still a lot of out of pocket expense.

But worth it

Trying to post. Got home and took my top off. Took the family for our first topless cruise then put on my bikini.
Only in a jeep forum can that sound normal and ok. Lol.

Meet up place and time? This will be my first run on this trail in almost 20 years. So basically I am calling it a first run.

Thats why I finally ordered the Cobra 75. Inside all that will show is the mike. It should be here Mar 21. What's the best place to go to for Coax cable in town? I hate Radio Shack cable. Neve had good luck with it.

I'm not gonna give up my full size rig, I love it. Mesa CB usually has good supplies, haven't been there in a few years though. If not call Drivers Den on Constitution and Eubank, if they don't have it they can point you in the right direction.

Would they be able to tune a cb? I work within throwing distance of them.
