    Dogs!

    My two boys. Both rescues. Kodak (the husky) is about 3 now and was abused by his first owner which made him very aggressive at first. He was taken back twice to the shelter we got him from due to killing a baby goat and attacking another dog. Thankfully it was a no kill shelter and we got him a day after he was taken back the 2nd time. After months of easing him into socializing with other animals and getting the second dog, he now is the sweetest Husky you will ever meet. Bandit is a border collie (I think?). He is about 1 1/2 years old and we honestly know nothing about his past
  2. Picked up a VERY well cared for, one owner, 2011 WK2 with the 3.6l yesterday. Only paid 10,500 out the door. Pictures to come once it's daylight 😁
  3. I'm actually probably looking at a 2012 GC with the 3.6l tomorrow. It's loaded with every option possible, has 106k on it, 1 owner with no wrecks, crystal black pearl paint with leather charcoal grey interior, and 4wd. They're asking 12,900 for it. I'm still not sure if I want 4wd or not honestly though...
  4. Thanks for the replies! I've been researching, crunching numbers, and talking with the warden (wife). If the right deal came up then I may end up grabbing a 11-14 GC. Does anyone have any experience with the 3.6l Pentastar engines that are in those? Are they any better than the engines in the earlier models mentioned above? My main goal is to have a reliable vehicle so if I have to have a car payment then I guess so be it 😂
  5. So the time is soon coming to retire my 97 Sentra that has possibly been the best car I will ever own. It has reliably driven me for about 5 years now with two of those years driving 700+ miles a week. It currently has 230k miles on it and is mechanically perfect and the AC/heat still works perfectly somehow. It's not leaving the family, just simply going to be parked at my brother's house so he has a spare vehicle for when someone in the family is in need. So now down to business; what in the world am I going to replace it with? I'm stuck between a Liberty
  6. What is this method? I can get my MJ to most of the posts easily. My yard isn't big at all. That home made post puller is a great idea though, thanks!!! I will look into a concrete mixer/auger rental. I like just having extra tools laying around so usually I buy instead of renting. The dirt here is soft so I expect it to be easy to dig. Also I will look into doing the posts every 6ft instead of 8. Everywhere I saw recommended doing 8ft stretches
  7. Been working up plans to build a privacy fence around my yard and wood prices are finally getting low enough to do it. Anyone have any experience in this? Currently I have a 4 ft tall chain link fence that was built when the house was built YEARS ago so it is sagging and my 60 pound husky/45 pound Border Collie hop it easily when they see a squirrel on the other side. I've already gotten permission from all of my neighbors and and I am paying for it myself because I am the one who really wants the fence (honestly I hate how my neighbors yards look so it's mostly to make my back yard look bette
  8. I would be interested in a SWB one depending on the cost. Don't really know my limit honestly cause it depends on how much my wife spends that week 😂
  9. I completely forgot about this thread honestly. I got caught up on the house and taking care of her that week and forgot to check back. I appreciate everyone's kind words either way! The update is that thankfully everything was fine for her. She was stuck in bed for about 3 days. The worst days weren't the first few, but the last few. She still can not smell anything and the doctors say she won't be able to for about 6 months at least. Otherwise she was perfectly fine after 6 or 7 days of symptoms. I somehow didn't contract it from what I can tell. I never had ANY symptoms despite
  10. I think I'm going to try to pull it out of the Jeep next time I'm up at my mom's house and take a look at it. I drove it consistently for a couple years and the BA10 was fine other than the whine in the 5th gear. Either way I will keep the Aw4 handy in case the BA10 went out all of a sudden. I know most of what I need to grab from the manual Jeep to swap it over, but do I need the computer from it as well? Or will my automatic one be fine?
  11. I also just realized I put this in The Pub instead of MJ tech that's what I get for typing this up at a red light on my way to work
  12. My MJ is fine other than death wobble at 60MPH, and either the flywheel is cracked or I have a low end engine knock (has been happening since I bought it 5 years ago.). The rest is all just minor issues like the dash being demolished and the driver side window regulator went out. The MJ that I'm planning to pull the BA10/5 from would require a lot of work because it has been sitting for 5 or so years and I have been pulling parts off of it to fix my current MJ as needed.
  13. So I've been wanting a manual transmission for quite a while now. There are NO AX-15's around me in decent condition for a decent price and honestly right now even a decent price is too much for me due to me paying cash for everything while I remodel my house/replace appliances with new models. I originally was looking for just a 2wd one but recently decided if I'm going to do it then I'm going to go ahead and put a 4wd in even if I don't replace the front axle with a 4wd one immediately (2LO with a locked rear end sounds nice to me). I got to thinking about it and realized that I still have m
  14. Well my wife, who is a respiratory Therapist at UAB (she works with Covid-19 daily) finally caught the bug. She tested positive. She is perfectly fine other than a few small symptoms, but due to us being married I am out of work for 2 weeks or longer if I end up getting sick. She called me and told me today while I was at work so I promptly told my manager, left work and stopped by Lowe's for a quick supplies run to make sure I have something to do for 2 weeks. Going to install new ceiling fans throughout the house, finish my washroom remodel, and start on the kitchen remodel. Got family and f
  15. You guys now have me convinced enough that I'm saving up for a set of 15x8 Mammoth Boulder rims. They look great for the price.
