Re: Important

Put the rotted out commuter Jeep up for sale on Marketplace. Long evening of dipshits that seem the to think they can dictate to me what I'm going to do with a 23 year old rusted out pile of shit. The ones that crack me up the most, are the ones that offer less than LKQ would pay me to drive it in the gate and then get upset when I tell them that.

I signed up for the offers of cheese covered handies from you guys. It's the idiots that want me to drive half way to Chicago to let them look at Jeep, I already said probably shouldn't be on the road.

Re: Important

I have this 93 Ford Taurus SHO. Car runs and drives, but has no brakes. It's generally in not great shape. I've throw it out there to make a couple bucks and trying to save it for the SHO gear heads. Unfortunately, they are like MJ folks. They all want ME to save it from the crusher, but no one wants to buy it and add it to their collection.

I will likely start parting it and scrap it soon...

The good news is that I will make way more money parting it than selling it whole...

I would love to have it as a fun car but I canít justify a drive to the Fort for that...

Re: Important

I've just been doing some stuff to the red 98 I had in Moab. It's a SE with an OHC and 4 speaker stereo now. Last weekend I pulled out the hiem joint steering it had and replaced it with SFR 7075 aluminum links and Moon GM 1 ton tres. It drives real nice now. It's not like herding a 60s Ford grain truck down the road anymore.

Re: Important

Just bought a 12k winch from Northern for $379 to put on the trailer, $50 more then the 9k from HF. If it lasts at least a month it will pay for its self with how much towing I've pay each month. Next step is a 10k tilt trailer, ramps are a pain in the back!
