    Ft.Myers shores huh,that area is nice. I like the buckingham area because it's a little more secluded,I am born and raised SWFL and hate the cape. And downtown Ft.Myers is a nice area as well,the party scene lol.

    As I've mentioned before your "backyard" is beautiful. And Joe's Crab shack. I love that place. That location in particular, right by the water. My wife & I go to Miromar Outlets sometimes. Once we leave there we drive further north to Joes & then back home to Miami.

    Sounds like a plan! Will do.

    BTW, twice only since the 70's sounds pretty damn safe to me & yes, knock on wood.

    Hey South Florida,

    Hope you all had a good Easter Weekend. Mine was awesome, got my Rock Sliders welded up and my ARB Fog lights hooked up. Here are a few pictures.

    What's up nammer the shop that did the welding is Karnage Motor Sports. We had a couple pending things so we just canceled out one another with this job.

    I recommend you call Nick (786) 355-9685 or Will (305) 609-4747 Don't quote me on this but I think this cost $250.00 or so.

    $250 to weld on Sliders is pretty dang steap IMO.
