I don't think so bud. At least I don't recognize them right off.

Man! Just got back in from the garage. Pulled the rear springs, shocks, track bar, and whatever else out of the Jeep AGAIN.
Mostly gathering measurements to get ready for relocated shocks mounts and what length shocks to get. I've done it all ten times before, but I've done it so many times, and with so many modifications, I never know what numbers to use. :D
Two good things came out of the work. First, I noticed my passenger side bump stop bolt had worked loose. This could have been bad but was caught before anything got pooched. If I hadn't have had the axle dropped and the springs out, I wouldn't have known.
Second, after fiddling with my pinion angle and axle location, I was able to go back to my JKS adjustable heavy duty track bar. It's reeeeaaaal close, but it goes.
When I first did the flat skid, I couldn't make it work and was forced to go back to my stock one. I was not happy with that setup. It was a little short, so the axle was shifted to the passenger side a little. It also caused binding at droop, and limited my flex.
I need a win once in a while. :D
My dad came over to see what was cooking in the garage. I told him if I did the math, I'm sure I spend more time under Jeeps than in them. :D
Was just under Old Red the day before yesterday. Pulled the front driveshaft. Ordered the parts for a rebuild today.

Those be MAYAPPLES! Incredible that yours are up....I saw them today and they are just stating to show the canopy.....

That Jayster is quite the mechanic......for real, around here there's a lot of rich kids with new Jeeps and they have no one to do the lift kits. I can't think of a four wheel drive garage within 30 miles of here and the Jayster would make a mint..but ...he already has...

Well, I was out fiddling out back looking for fiddleheads and I found a million of those ferns....all over the place along the streams. I really don't know what to look for so I picked a few and mom says they smell like beans, like they are supposed to.....

The tops of the ferns were curly....here's a pic.

GAMEKEEPER WINS! For you you Mr. Gamekeeper, I award you a pair of Meghan Markles used underclothes.....I really don't think you want them though.....looks like pieces of steel wool all over...

OK, on to business and fun times.....I have a million rifle slings from 1900 on .......I bought these single point slings for my AR's when the slings first came out and upgraded every time a better design came out.....Sooooooo, I keep this stuff and TODAY I found a use for one and it's PERFECT.....a single point sling that's elastic........sooooooooo I go out to the garage and get an old hose connector (I don't throw those out either) and replace one of the screws with a wood eye hole screw and VIOLA! ....a perfect adjustable and elastic shoulder strap for the semi mighty Ego power trimmer with the NEW powerhead!!!!

I get so excited at meaningless junk....that's how boring my life has become. ----006

Hey buddy that's a great idea with the slings. That would work great on my brush saw!

The fiddleheads would be gone by down your was I imagine. They would be all unfurled ferns. You guys are way ahead of us weather wise.

Hey dude.....you like the name change to Jay Bird? You see, i was changing my handle so often the moderators fixed it solid .

Jay Bird, in real life was an old black guy who used to hang out at the old Wawa at 202 and Rt. 1 in the late sixties/early seventies...don't think you remember that one...it's where Delco Steaks and all those restaurants are now.......Old Jay Bird used to sit outside of the Wawa with an accordion and a mess of old license plates.....he would bang away! As teenagers we would throw him money for wine and such.....he was a cool dude from the old school.

By the way, that's a nice BAR you have there!---Yo papa

Hey dude......go look at your profile that I changed......Nome, Alaska has about 3 hours of daylight a year and I put down beach patrol, growing cucumbers and I work at a surf shop.

Six does Quadratec do any work or just sell parts? Not far from here there is a 4wd shop, I won't go in there, I ordered shocks from them years ago and they sold them out from under me ! Then I needed a ujoint for my 88 Jeep, called them and was quoted a price. Got there and they charged me double what I was told on the phone. Bad business practices I won't tolerate. The name of the company I won't say .

I ordered an output yoke for Old Red from Quadratec yesterday. I've had pretty good luck with them over the last 20 years or so. I think they do work but we don't have any fancy places like that around here. There are maybe a couple small build shops in the state, but they are small and private. Most guys are stuck doing their own work or getting help from friends.

Raining hard here this morning. Like monsoon season hard. Ditch out front is overflowing. Roof gutters are overflowing and downspouts are a solid 4 inch jet of water gushing out. Probably a 4 inch per hour or more rain.

Is it really Friday ? Cuz today was more of a Monday as nothing went right. New Anderson slider, special order burnt bronze color and they install the 'weather block' - its WHITE! The aluminum sill is mill finish. WRONG WRONG WRONG! Can't install the door. The wind blowing directly on the side of the house where we need to install 2 windows, owner said not to do those. Then it started to rain... whole day shot to pelosi.

Looked at the bunker schedule this morning- uh oh a 100 bird fun match today! Throw my guns in the truck , do my 3 'S-es' ( pelosi, shower & shave) and head for the Commonwealth to the bunker. Oh how the wind is HOWLING! I'm betting a 4m straight away is going to go maybe 50m distance (if not come back at the line) and not the regulation 76m. Did I mention the wind is blowing!! Wonder if anyone is going to show up...?

Trying to hit those clay pigeons is almost impossible for me when they get a 30 or 40 mile per hour tailwind. Wind speed much above 35 to 40 started to make lots of things difficult back when I lived out near the windiest part of North America. Between Dodge City and down through Lubbock is where anything less than 10 miles per hour is considered a dead calm. In 1983, Dodge City did not officially record even 1 second of wind speed below 15 miles per hour. They had more than 1 full year of that. Once a clay pigeon tips and the wind catches it, at 15 mph or more you never know whether it will dive, go up, or just go full speed ahead with the afterburners kicked in. Seeing a clay suddenly pick up speed about 30 yards after it was thrown is fun.

Hey....you shoot those birds Gunny! Every one on dem!....(I like those 3 s'es......our here in redneck land we call the 3 s'es, "shoot...shovel...shut up". Up there in Jay land they have what is called "SLB" which stands for "shoot" let it "Lay" and "Buzzards"......and sometimes it people..sometimes it's old refrigerators.....sometimes it blm

Wind was craazzzyyyy yesterday and still is today a bit but not as gusty. It's 2:15 and I'm not even dressed yet, but for me, it's nothing more than a T shirt, slip on shorts, my Redwings, and of course my "Trump 2020" hat...

I never was any good at trap but I rarely practiced but when I did shoot at our upstate deer camp "pre-hunt shootfest" I was the top guy using a Lafever double field model.....only gun I could hit birds with.....

Targets were sporty for sure! We shoot facing due north, NW wind gusting to 15 or 20! The targets we throw are fast, 3-4 times faster than a backyard machine, these buck the wind a bit better but put them head into the wind they slow real fast and a tailwind well you shoot behind every time! One of my buddies is teaching his 9 yr old son to shoot, with the spring cranked down and s l o w target speeds they really duck & dive!

Jay how many machines are you operating at one time?

Well, last night they wanted me in inspection. I did keep a Mori-Seki machining center going on prep.
I was going to let the 5 axis Twin spindle Turbomills run. There are 5 of them. I calibrated 2 CMMs too.
It's ridiculous. There is no way one man can properly keep track of that and all the tooling in an effective way. If there is a problem, it's spit out half a dozen parts between all the machines. Hate it.

I can't hit anything with a shotgun in a dead calm, let along a 40mph wind! I'm terrible with them. :D

Jay.....Forget about competing with Gunny with a shotgun....he's in a class waaayyyy above us.......you know those boxes of clay birds with 144 in each box? Well, some company just came out with a clay bird thrower that throws refrigerators! You can use washing machines and dryers in a pinch.

You and I could hit those but I'd need you to pick up a few if you happen to see any laying along the road.

You were by yourself at work and "didn't care?" :D well, if you are anything like me, you make it LOOK like you care, but really don't. I used to drive around the warehouse with the same pallet of soda...looked like I was working.....when I went past the shipping office, I'd gun the engine then slow down for another 1/4 mile trip around.

During my trip around I'd usually run into a buddy who was smoking a joint or having a beer, and I'd stop for a bs session.

Use dryers- lighter and will go farther! I tried to get guys at school to get onboard the home appliance grand slam but most weren't willing to shoot their stuff. It all started with myself having an A.D. and shooting the tv but that's another story :lol:

You can bring your buffalo coat, just that it is too bulky for shotgun shooting, just leave it in the Jeep when we are shooting.

I'd really like to find one of those antique miniature traps that throw Ritz crackers, then I'd have to find a .22 smooth bore.

Gunny, I can't help with the Ritz crackers but Westley Richards used to have the first type of trap that threw glass balls full of feathers. If you can find a Webley and Scott .22 garden gun they have a choke barrel, I found that out when I fired a hypervelocity .22 out of one... :oops:

Dang!...I was thinking of Gamekeeper last night and I wanted to ask him something....should have wrote it down......

Summer day here.......80 degrees and a 10 mph wind.....funny thing, when the temps get to 90-95 and the humidity equals it, the wind stops.........

Gunny.....I can't think of nothing I have not shot...except for the obvious.......TV's, toasters, washing machines, cars, (junkers). dirt, bicycles, lawn mowers, (running).....trees, even an abandoned house .....we were small game hunting and I found a 12 ga rifled slug in my vest so I shot this old house and then walked in to find the hole and there in the room was a recently deceased homeless guy with his arm still twitching.........I flew outta there..... :D (please don't take these statements as gospel as some people just like to cause trouble for others.......I did shoot the house though...)

Ahhhhh...close......skunks that found a barrel of musk oil, not grasshoppers.

As we almost always eat outside...weather permitting.......we get surrounded by animals all waiting for a handout. So today, while munching down on mom's specialty cod fillets and her secret sauce recipe wrapped up with in a soft taco flour tortillas Miss Apple demanded she get a seat at the table...at the head of the table, of course....

She is very well mannered but did not like her taco so she got 2 hotdogs cut up.

This is the sequence of her "at the table" adventure.----006

I will say, I don't give Zoey any either. My wife may on occasion. That's why Zoey pays her attention at meal time. Me not so much.
Now, if I head for the garage, she is front and center. She loves to hang out with me there. Especially if it translates into a Jeep ride.

Our Chihuahua, Mija, will fight for popcorn. She loves it.
That is the ONE thing I will share with Zoey. She loves it, and it's always a treat for us both.
I never had a dog that didn't like popcorn.

Hi all! I am still alive. I have been reading all your adventures and day to day stuff but didn’t have much to add sooooo. Work has been busy and I have been playing mechanic on my old truck. Rebuilt the rear axle all new seals, diff bearings, parking brake cables, brake lines,axle bearings, backing plates, blah blah blah.! Went shooting today
Marlin 1894 in 357 and Marlin 1894 takedown in 25/20.
Happy with all that. Hope all are doing well. Tom

Hey! Welcome back. Sounds like a project. Rebuilding an axle ain't something you want to mess up or half azz. You were probably wise to avoid our influence and distractions. :D

All new ujoints in three driveshafts next then a complete rebuild of the front axle and suspension including ball joints and NEW axle shafts, steering parts, shocks, bushings, wheel hubs blah blah blah. Ordered a new bed crossmember kit too. I was looking through the want ads locally at newer super duty found my dream.... beautiful blue with silver, diesel, crew cab, nice but not ostentatious, 2019 with 34,000 on it AND a MERE $77,000.
So decided to put a boatload of money into Moby.
