    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    Yall, I wouldn't touch Kyle, I hear he has the drip lol!

    On a taco note, wasn't there a recall on the wire harness in the steering column? I've been driving my dad's truck for a while now and the seat belt light has always been on but now it's almost impossible to get it started. The ignition locks up and I have to bang the column up and down to get it started since the ignition is always locked. I'm trying to save him money on fixing it.

    That says all you need to say about Kool Moe Dee, right there.

    Yeah the wheel arches were already off (Previous owner did away with them), so that's basically it.

    Losing the arches and running boards, at least appearance wise, looks like a 2" or so lift between one with arches and boards, vs. without either.

    Yeah, Eric's (brewery owner) wife had a baby last week, so he's not available to host us at the brewery. He was actually up north on a disaster recovery team and had to fly home when she went in to labor like 12 days early.

    The guy is up north working the power issue and I haven't heard from him since before the storm hit. I tried contacting him but nothing. If he comes back and contacts me, if I don't have it fixed yet, then I will sell it to him but if not then those are my plans. Halfway there for the motor though, got Christmas around the corner though.

    Any body know of free/cheap internet phone options? I don't want to shell out my money to comcast if I don't have to.

    None are as cheap as you'd like, as far as vonage etc. Sip Trunks can be bought by the minute really cheap though.

    We ended up just upgrading our cell phones to unlimited since we get good signal at home.

    Also your new gif is great.

    If you've got internet on the cheap you can do a google voice gateway and backfeed the copper phone lines in your house with it. I've got a coworker doing this with two of them, has them set up as lines 1 and 2 on his existing phone lines in his house.
