Good Morning everyone.

What is your todays agenda? I'll be changing my trans and transfer case fluids.

P.S. Gunner, your wife should be happy you have a jeep for a girlfriend.

I let my wife choose my hobby.
It was either younger women or shooting.

And if the wife goes shooting also, there's a pretty good chance the hubby will realize a younger woman is not such a good idea

I had a trophy I won in a shooting contest, I used to make sure it sat in plain site to remind Mike I don't miss, lol. It must have worked, we celebrate our 31st anniversary in May.

Good Morning, I hope your Saturday is a nice one.

My good friends daughter has a new baby boy and her older son turns 2 today. They are having a bbq and I have to miss it, I have a horrible cold and can't chance giving it to the new baby. I'm so bummed, I really wanted to see him

We have a charity dinner tonight for a Foster Children's program. I'm taking it easy all day so I don't miss that. I'll double up on Dayquill and go, lol.

Tomorrow is a big bbq for my Dad's birthday, it's a busy weekend and not a good one to be sick

I'm thinking a pedicure might make me feel better, haha. Might have to work that in sometime today.

Geri never did much girly things for herself when she was working in the auto industry. Now she goes to spas and gets pedi's and polish. She loves it. She took me once. It was beyond weird for me. So my one and only pedi will have to last for a long time.

LOL you been working on your own stuff too long. Shops cost about 70 to 90 bucks an hour now. But don't you think he will enjoy it a lot more with the FI than trying to get the carter to work. Those are famous for being POS.

I have changed almost everything and tune ups and just not helping only thing I haven't changed was the cat.

I already spent 200 rebuilding this one I don't really want to dump another 300 into an issue that might not solve it.

I have a bit of black smoke out the tail pipe when I rev high.

Have someone rev up the motor while you feel the exhaust flow out of the tail pipe. If it's not really a good push then yeah either the cat or muffler could have a clog. But use a glove. the exhaust is pretty hot.

Never been to Cancun. Not sure if anywhere near Mexico is going to be very high on my list with the problems there. When my wife went she said they kept the beggar's away from the ship, but in town they were everywhere. Use to race down there and it was pretty cool. Ran from Ensenada to Sam Philipe on Hwy 2. La Carrera. 130 mph thru the mountains close to 200 on the flats. Some fun.
