Re: 3G parts closeout RockAuto

The clutch kit is tempting me, but I cant be sure of fit and quality!

Re: Torn Bicep Muscle

First time to the forum in a while, and I see we old 3G owners are all falling apart. Time fly's, you'll be out working in the garage tomorrow I bet. I had to have emergency hernia surgery 2 months ago, my right hip and shoulder hurt too...retirement is hard on the old bod. :D

Nice score....I went on the Rubicon Run in this friends jeep. It's/he has been doing it for over 10 years. Not fancy, but well built. I drove half and was super impressed where you can take a well prepped jeep. :patriot:

Cell phone reception at home help

My cell phone works everywhere at home, except the most important room, my basement Man Cave! If I just step out the door into the backyard, it works…15 feet into the room at my computer desk, no reception. So can I solve this without spending $$$.00 - i.e. Outside and inside small antennas connecte...

Re: Firestone Vs AirLift

For a PW that's not lifted I can recommend Firestone. Had mine 10 years now. They have been squished and stretched a lot. I did go with the Daystar cradles a couple of years ago. I went with the on board compressor and dual controls. I use it to level the Truck for camping and for scary side slopes....

Enjoy - But keep busy - That is the ticket for a long lasting life in retirement! My dad has been retired for 30 years. Every day he is out and about working on projects that he mostly enjoys. :D Most of his coworkers retired and kicked back as couch potatoes - and then passed away within 5-10 year...

That's awesome. My dad retired so 10 or so years ago and couldn't be happier. He get's up, walks the dog, eats and reads the paper, then takes a nap. Does what he wants when he wants. Enjoy!

Retired

I can't believe that after all these years I finally made it to retirement. Friday was my last work day. I am so fricken happy...every day is a Saturday. Time to start adding to the 39000 mi on the PW. :D I got a new toy too - A $1500.00 flying camera (quad copter) should be fun on trips to Nevada.
