    All right ladies. I KNOW some of you get DIRTY!

    Time to post up some pics to show these guys we aren't just wall art! Oh and tell us why "You know you are a chick who wrenches when..." too :D

    Now where is that zerk again?

    2:00am Trail repair. Broken ring gear, Moab... LONG night! (Wasn't my rig though... thank god!)
    [​IMG]

    Another night trail repair. This time it was my rig. The shift linkage kept breaking. Plus I was lying in a creek. Fun times!
    [​IMG]

    Let's see is that a 14 or a 12?

    You know you are a chick wrenching when:
    * They don't call you pig pen for nuthin'
    * You like your drive-shaft to have good extension
    * Having a roll in the mud sounds like a good time

    When called for, wrenching in a dress is totally appropriate!

    [​IMG]

    I hate it when the coil comes un-done!

    Never buy a 2nd gen 4runner from the east or Midwest. RUST is the killer... Me and POR-15 are best friends now...
