Ouch. No injuries at the meet. Though my knee hurts from driving my stick shift for like a 3 hour round trip. And John didn't cut his head!

The turnout was a little disappointing but we know you were all there in spirit!

I got there after the 1 inch BL. We finished up the A/C stuff on Kevin's Edge. The rear sway bar install was cool. I am defiantly grabbing one from an Expo for my 31-spline 8.8 swap. We got my rusted out bolts off of my bed so I can get the bed off for my rear shackle mounts. Since we were bored we finally replaced the last damaged item from my wreck from 2 years ago, the passenger inner tie rod. I didn't realize how bad it really was! Pic below. John hooked us up with a bunch of free stuff like time and tools :) Plus he gave me a new foglight, sandbags for winter that he had lying around, plus a bunch of good knowledge about Rangers in general. His house is like a mini Ranger JY. Lots of parts EVERYWHERE haha.

PICS!!

And of course the super sketchy bent and rewelded tie rod we replaced. That thing was DANGEROUS!

We always have a blast no matter where we meet or what we do. I didn't have much time to prepare or I would have planned better for things to do besides work, and we could have had some food. It would be cool to have a winter meet at somewhere with a big garage or warehouse.

I can't believe it lasted 2 years either! I had no idea it was that jerry rigged. I surprised I never hit a pot hole that broke it. I'm probably gonna get aligned on Thursday.

lol thanks Martine. Yeah I turned a half a century in June. I don't mind getting old, I have paid my dues and worked hard most of my life. Sure my hair is moving from my head to my ears and eyebrows and my skin is not soft and smooth anymore but I don't stand in the mirror and worry about it. I never look back at what might have been and just keep setting goals and working towards them. I'll just keep working until I'm done and I get called home...
