My MIL isn't bad, I almost feel bad cuz the wife said something and she isn't coming back (not really)

They were just icing on top of the cake. I offer things to be nice because i know i'd expect it if i was there. But a few days turns into a few weeks and turns into a year. I also know i don't put myself into those situations.

I really feel for you man...

We took in a a sister-in-law because her husband was waste of skin. She never paid her rent on time, ran up our phone, electric and gas bills. Then after we told her to leave she stole a bunch of CDs, coins and even my daughter's girl scout cookie money.

So when my wife called to tell me that her parents were at each other throats and something needed done my answer was
1. No one gets to live in our house.
2. We aren't giving money to any of them.

Re: Important

Ok, so I won the Brown Dog motor mount engine brackets at Winterfest. I plan on installing these on the stroker motor but cannot swing the cash for the BD motor mounts just yet. Will the stock motor mounts bolt up to the BD engine brackets? Anyone know?

Now, I could be wrong but the Brown dog mounts fit without the engine brackets so I'm guessing they should work.

If he's not being an idiot, he can stay!

Re: Important

Thanks for the info guys. I have new stock mounts so I hope they at least last the weekend with the 4.7. Just can't order the new BD mounts just yet. Have to finish paying off the new wheels and tires. Now if I could just sell the 38" Mickeys I would be set!!

What year and what kind of warranty did it come with? Fairly reliable otherwise?

Auburn Hills isn't too bad. I got assigned to the International Logistics Operation. As of right now I am working on sourcing US/Can./Mex. from Chrysler dealers for parts in Maserati concept cars, FIAT in China, and engine parts for Ferrari.
