    Well depending on how much the PFD is, and how much I save before I get it, I may pick up a full OME kit with 882 coils, dakar springs and the AAL. My coworker is driving the alcan and is coming back in mid October and said he'd pic it up from wheelersoffroad for me. So that'd save me a couple hundred bucks in shipping costs :D I need to buy myself an early graduation present anyway, so why not with the PFD?

    My pops was saying that we're on the last year of a crappy 5 year cycle, so this year may not break 1000...Bummer. But next year is supposed to be better. Oh well, I'm still getting stuff haha.

    Not bad. not as bad as when i was growing up and a "good year" was $500. haha. Its all based on the market and investments over several years. A few more years and i'm sure we'll get back above $1,000.

    So tempting to put that toward a lift....soooooo tempting. Or I could take a vacation. I haven't left the state in 6 years so I think it's about time I do that, lol.

    I think as of this year we start onto the upward swing of things since the economy troubles of 5 years ago. Thats what my pops said anyways, something about a 5 year cycle.

    yep from what I can tell this year is the result of the 2008 crash. The market has pretty much steadily gotten better since then, so the next few years should all see higher PFD's. I won't get my first one till next year.
