    Oh Crap that is the best!!!I think I apply to "all of the above!".When your 5 year old knows all the tread patterns of the real off-road tires...i.e boggers,swampers,BFG M/T's and the old "ThornCraps".It a true story!!

    We took a few pictures of our 3 year old the other day that were incredible. She was cleaning the drive shaft out of my truck with an old tooth brush. Then she was rummaging through Wayne's tools looking for "her size tools" in her daddy's tool box. She also calls his tools...daddy's toy's. And she get's really pissed when he chases her out of the tool box. She has already come to me tatteling on daddy cuz he wouldn't share his toys with her. God I can see her now when she turns 16. She'll want her own 4x4. Which isn't a bad thing, however.....I for see her wanting it bigger then mommy's or daddy's. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Sounds kinda scary if you ask me. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif Heck we have even watched our 3 year old lay underneath her little red wagon with the sides that come off of those disposable plastic party sun glasses as her tools and was trying to fix what ever was wrong with it. The day I swapped the front bumper on my truck she layed down underneath the truck beside me and said Mommy can I help you. And thought she was a big shot when I left her hold the nut's and bolts till I needed them.

    My son (5 yrs old) has decided that he is going to start saving his allowance now so he can buy parts to have a truck built by the time he's old enough to drive. Of course, it'll have to be bigger than Dad's.

    My 9 year old spotted a set of those fake beadlocks on a jeep last night and asked about them. I told her they were fake Beadlocks. SHe asked what Bead locks do, I explained and went on to say this guy is just trying to look cool (had like 31 inch tires). SHe looks at the Jeep and said "Posure". I just chuckled.
    I have seen a different version of the firs one. It used dipstick instead of Philips head Screw driver.

    most of this applies to me and most of it my wife hates.she cant understand why i want to change my truck to 3/4 ton and also why i spend so much time and money on it.she wont even ride in it unless she has to.a lot more of this would apply to me if i wasnt renting my house.looking for a permanent home for my blazer right now.i already had to sell off one parts truck cause the landlord wouldnt let me keep "junk" on his property.i gotta find a house fast so i can get more "junk" to tear apart and use. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif .awesome post,i never seen this before.definitely going on the fridge.
