    So true. "The days may be long, but the years are short."

    All the little ones have fun in the garage and the outdoors and they all get to play in on and around all my iron. While it does mean my stuff will always be scratched up, the memories we make are priceless. Plus, it gives my wife some time to recuperate when we are out of the house.☺

    Have you checked out the Dinoot trailers? Thinking about one for when I get my CJ6 done.

    I like Dinoot trailer beds. They are really nice and also affordable but I think I may do aluminum for the box.

    Installed the AA intermediate shaft kit yesterday. Seems quieter although not drastically so. Very straightforward install. Had my son CJ pull the xcase while I filleted a bunch of Calico from ice fishing on Saturday. McRuff machined the gear for the bearing races, worked great. Put the gear in the oven at 250 with my potroast. Froze the races. A little loctite, some gentle tap tap tap, worked great. Thanks Mike!

    I did have to grind the Advance Adapter to my SM 465 on one area. I will take a pic to show.

    I should have done this with the oven and froze. I just hammered them down using a soft face hammer.

    Been running it for 1 year without any issu. But it was not my biggest trail year since my daughter is born 1 feb 2017.

    Using Farm Jeep Willy regularly since our salt seems to have disappeared. On the expressway at 55-60 mph, I think it is noticeably quieter now with the AA Intermediate shaft kit. Or it's just me enjoying the CJ-6 so much that I'm not noticing it.

    1529753422933103853765.jpg I was driving by a Subway sandwich shop in Clarks Summit PA and saw these on the delivery van, a 90s Ford. I asked the staff who called the owner. The owner of the Subway said he bought the van just to have it lettered and I could have the hubcaps for free. What a nice guy!
