Who is that Jedi?

So I just bought a 87 Comanche 5spd.

 

I have had a few trucks over the years. 89 Dakota.. 99 Dakota (totaled in head on w/ 18 wheeler) and 2000 (gave up to the ex in the divorce)

 

After my divorce I got a 2006 xB. Small.. good on gas.. but.. can't haul much.

 

Wife now has the 02 Mustang and I needed a 2nd car. Or a 1st Truck as I would say. Found the truck on Craigslist. Looked at it and bought it on site. After some quick google search's I found this site.

 

I have been on the DodgeTrucks.Org forums for years and enjoy the people there. Problem is they know Dodge. not Jeep.

 

I work for a large Web Hosting company doing tech. I take care of Reseller customers (People who buy hosting for their customers and mark it up to make a buck). Previously I was at GoDaddy doing general support and before that was Suddenlink Cable in West Texas.

 

Been doing Computers since 91.. and Internet since it was the Internet. Got my degree in Web Design and E-Commerce in 2001.

 

As far as cars/trucks I have done a few things here and there.. Dad and I did a full swap on the engine of my V6 89 Dakota.

 

Plans for the Comanche are to get the little stuff fixed.. Clutch Master Cylinder is first on the list.. then do all the other stuff. Use it as a daily driver and to haul Dad's boat to the lake.

Let's cut to the chase...........can you make our home page look mack-daddy? If so, I know a few guys on here that can explain thingamajigs and doohickeys like nobody else and we'll lend you a hand.

 

So, welcome, and since our founder, Pete, did not offer the un-O-fficial welcome, and Taz, one of our resident Jeep parts (and Bud Light Lime) specialists did not either.......I guess I'll do it. Beer's in the fridge :cheers: , take a seat, but not on the tan couch. That's Chico's seat. :brows: (BTW, anybody heard from Chico lately? Dude went MIA)

I was thinking that when I posted a found Craigslist Ad for some wheels last week. ¿Dónde está el loco wedo?

Yeah I can do some Website magic.

 

Been at web sites since about 95.. or so.

 

I have a "Style" that I tend to follow.. I just like simple.. easy.. Hey look thats where I want to go and I click and go type deal.

 

Budlight.. with.. or without lime.. is some of the worst beer I have EVER tasted (Flame.. here it comes)

 

Beer.. should be Dark.. rich.. flavorful. Budlight is for people who don't like the taste of beer and need to piss all the time.

 

Bud Light gives me headaches like no other. 1 bud light and Headache for sure.. 1 12 pack of a good Amber Bock (Ziegenbach if in texas.. Shiner almost anywhere) and I am good the next day.

 

Noticed I left out that I am 31.. and spent most of my free evenings at bars.. about 80% of that was working.. at the bar. Learned a few things.. Never drink with the owners. They will make you hurt. And no matter how cute she is that night. She will be hideous in the morning.

 

So.. the front page. I'll see what I can whip up. I have a Development site I use. The last site I did is on there. A template for a Realtor in Modesto Ca. www.kustomdev.com/kh

 

and the Tan couch... hmm I'll just bring my own folding chair.. or do like I do at work.. Back the truck in and drop the tail gate.. grab a cold Mt. Dew (At work ya know) and sit and BS.

:rotfl2: Well said, although I don't mind BLL as a cheap imitation of a super cold Corona witha REAL lime. But, love a good Guiness as well. Do a search for a good thread in The Pub about everyone's beer tastes. And as a former booze slinger, we'd be interested in your post.

 

PM Pete about site design ideas, I was basically kidding but it might be cool to have your expertise (not busting on ya Pete, just saying he does that kind of stuff every day, know what I mean?).

So I snapped some pics off my cell phone.. Resized them. and here they are.

 

The Crates in the back I just picked up today. Going to keep 3 back there across the front of the bed. I am forever picking up computers and odds and ends to fix.

 

I have the Tail lights. they are behind my seat. The Passenger side Mirror is behind the seat as well. That should go on tomorrow when I do the Clutch master Cylinder.

 

 

(Size limit won't let me post images)

the angle at the bottom (top right now) of the grill should line up with the contours of the header panel and headlight bezel. :cheers:

 

 

added to the "To Do Sat" List

 

So far.. Clutch Master Cylinder, Passenger side Mirror, Clean Fuse Block with Contact Cleaner

 

Sunday.. Lake.

Chico's upset b/c the tan couch got moved in the update! :D

 

Welcome to the forum! :cheers:

 

 

It's not I'm upset about you guys moving the couch. It's I'm upset nobody woke me up and got me off the couch when you guys decided to put the couch on the curb for the trashmen. Do you guys know where couches end up when you do that? Jersey...

Do you guys know what ends up in Jersey dumps?

Ex mob guys from New York.......

 

And Wahoo, I'm still not happy about the chick you let me talk to that night. Friends don't let friends drunk chat with wierd females. :rotf:

 

I'm back, and on the look out fer a brand new used couch.

 

Oh, and welcome to the club. So are you really a Jedi, or Chinese?

Chinese.. nope not Chinese that's for sure.

 

Long story short.. Buddy got me playing Counter-Strike back in 2001 and needed a name. He was OB1Coyote.. and Being a huge Star Wars fan I hit up starwars.com for a good name. I grabbed Qui Gon-Jinn because he was a bad @$$ and it was unusual.

 

 

Never been to Jersey. But know a hot red head that lives up there.. wife won't let me visit her.

 

Honestly though.. I am a big white guy from German ancestry. 6'4" and about 325. Blonde/blue

 

I tend to find side work either fixing computers.. or bouncing at bar's. Computers are fun but bar's have better view's.

Keystone.. we call that Hillbilly Beer around here.. Natty Ice is the same.

 

Tail lights.. are behind the seat. I have been working more since I got the truck then I planned on.. Thought I was going to be able to spend my off time on the truck. I am spending my off time working on other's computers.

 

Moter/Options.... here is what I know.

 

Motor is the I6 4.0L

Tranny is 5spd w/ 4x4

Bed is Longbed.

Truck Runs. 4x4 works. AC blows cold.

 

I know I have some issues in the front end. Need to get the Lower Control Arm Bushings replaced. but that will come with time.

 

I would love to know if it was a D44.. and more about the tranny.
