    The Automotive Thread

    I would ask this question on jeepforum but all I would get in reply is "aww you need 37's man and a XXXX $50000 lift blah blah blah"1 Lols I think Autozone actually rents them (spring comressors) for next to nothing so may not be a bad backup plan if I cant get them on - All the 4 Wheel shops are like 2 months out in terms of new work... I originally looked at a cheaper kit but you have to remove the springs to install the spacers so I figured if I had to do that might as well go with the new coil springs?

    one house built to last

    I have a friend who had (still has) a house in Cape San Blas, she told me having a house on the coast is almost a 2:1 insurance payment to mortgage payment ratio - I didn't know they had that kind of money but maybe spending 2X the normal cost of the house is worth it, if you have enough money to pay cash for the house and not have a mortgage.. also explains why a decent house is $2500+ / week to rent in that area..

    It reads like the springs just slide on? (or did you mean Air Compressor)? I do have air tools, 1/2 sockets, air compressor and a fridge full of beer..

    one house built to last

    Sure the other houses are old but Its still pretty cool that this one right on the ocean forefront took a heavy beating and stood. Newer isn't always better, in terms of residential construction and the downgrade in quality over the years.. I worked the aftermath of Hurricane Andrews with the Army and it seemed the opposite was true then, the older houses faired better than the newer houses..

    Do you think this would be an easy Saturday project? So 33's fit on a stock wrangler, but now its a little "tight" Runs good but thinking of putting this leveling kit on to gain just a little bit better look and articulation. https://www.extremeterrain.com/teraflex-jku-1-5-perf-leveling-1351500-cust-install-J101887.html Looks like the biggest PIA would be just doing this on the floor of the garage? Id get a real life but I have 2 kids in college almost..

    I am told it’s the easiest one to do? Worst case I tomahawk all the way down to tree line :-)

    one house built to last

    I saw this house on the news and then later saw the news story about it - pretty interesting that the one built above all the codes & with concrete walls withstood the hurricane.. although it looks like some others are still standing but it looks like it saved the house behind it maybe- https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/14/us/hurricane-michael-florida-mexico-beach-house.html
  10. I asked her if I just buy the books and then just open up a shop? Like is this a self help course? Or are Books actual insurance businesses for sale?? She has not responded yet - I wish I had time to respond to all of these and just drag them all out for a very long time.. sucks they always want to talk on the phone!
  11. I have only had a few jump straight to text, but the LinkedIn messenger is running full bore - (this must be what its like to be a pretty girl on instagram) one of my recent favorites!

    Wood for bbq

    The pink doesn't indicate that the meat is "raw" like in hamburger or steak, its how the meat is cooked through the smoking process that turns the outer edges that color.. I normally cook mine to around 150 and then let it sit before cutting and you get an extra 5 degrees out of it, but too much more than that it dry's out.. I've been feeding folks like this my whole life and no one has gotten sick, but maybe you yanks have a weaker immune system... even when we smoke a turkey to 180 degrees it still a pink color & about the best tasting turkey you can find..

    Ski Season is Around the Corner!

    also me and the 15 year old watched Hot Tub Time Machine last night, probably not the best Father / Son movie but defin is a good prep for the season to start! I have a goal to snow shoe up Quandary Peak this year and snowboard down - some of the younger guys at work are going to let me go with them - (taking the Avalanche Class and buying a beacon) the wife has forbidden me to do this, so will do it when she is at work one weekend-- I will leave the EB.com password with someone before I go
