The worry is that if I go over there for some hard top seals. I'll talk to them about some regearing which may well lead to a D44 with a locker. Which will lead to...

So should I:

1, Let it leak and avoid a costly addiction?
2, Take the Admiral with me and hope she says "no" at the proper time? The Admiral has a habit of saying "yes" too often when it comes to my toys. She even buys ammo for me.
3, Put on my Big Boy pants and just go over there and try my best not to ask about other upgrades?
Lol. Man up my friend. But on your big boy panties you'll be fine. Will you come home with something else maybe. You know you can always call and he can ship it to you I am sure. But the experience of the knowledge and conversation at Jpi is on you will not get anywhere else. I say GO in and have fun!!! Maybe if we get you addicted to Jpi you will come play with us sometime! All these people are so amazing and your and the warden are missing out!!

Now Rhonda, I thought you knew better. I don't have a warden. I live with an Admiral.

Had a blast down at Valley of the Moon an Elliot Mine near the border. Great group of people. Got a new go pro and the footage is so beautiful I can't wait to edit it down so we all can see it.

Here's a couple pictures in the the meantime...

Stan, I hope your trip went as planned. Unfortunately for me I had to miss it. With our daughters wedding that weekend I just couldn't get prepared.
Can't wait to see some pics.

Hi Serg. I am in the planning phase right now. Armor first then gears, axles, driveshaft's, axle tubes and welded c's. After that it would be a suspension lift and wheels and tires. Finally bumpers and a winch.

Bob how big are you wanting to go on that beast? The great thing about JKs IMO is that you don't need to go super tall to fit big shoes

Joe my big thing is that on this jeep I would like to keep my fenders intact. So 35's or 37's. and what ever Stan and I come up with as a smooth riding and flexible kit. But what ever it is I am going to want to do tuff runs as well as the easy ones.

Hmmmm hadn't thought of that. I'm also thinking the full Dark green camo would be cool for a base coat.

So it's official I broke it off. Packing up all his things is a bit rough but really can't do this anymore. He didn't even put up a fight to keep me. Oh well. On to a new chapter of my life. House spotless all laundry caught up and my room rearranged. New start. New week! Less stressful happy days coming my way without having to worry about taking care of someone who obviously doesn't have any ambition to take care of them selves.

Sorry to hear this, but it sounds like it was a while in the making. Now we can find you a fellow Jeeper when you are up to it.

Lol ya I need a man that doesn't drink everyday that enjoys jeeping (an absolute must) understands my troubled kid and feels that work is more important than video games. I have to be at least on his top 10. And he has to have ambition in life and enjoying taking sporadic get aways. Lol. Maybe my expectations are high. Maybe they aren't. But that's is what I want! Lol
