    Lifted my burb 6\'

    With my thumb!

    Time to service my tranny and my buddy said bring it by his shop and throw it up on his lift. This is his personal garage! MAN it's sweet to wokk on them on a lift.

    Ohh and there are TWO lifts. The second is outside. The Jeep is the one in the Win a Jeep post that is sticky at the top. It's getting close to being done. did some of the engine wiring yesterday while I was there. The second lift is just out of frame behind the jeep.

    Does it ever get cold down there? I noticed the shop didn't have any overhead doors. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    It has comercial doors that go up against the wall on the second floor. Infact Robzilla is who sold him the doors. There is a wood burning stove in there and keeps it pretty reasonable temp in the winter. The compressor is mounted upstairs in the storage loft so you hear it but it's not in the room with you. It's delux. It has a 27 inch TV on satalite and a great sound system too. The 27 inch TV is tied into security cameras with motion sensors. Somebody comes up to the house or the shop you hear a beep and the TV pops up with the image. The guy who shop it is owns a burgular alarm company.

    The place is ultra delux. It's usualy a lot more tidy but that jeep has been an ongoing project since Dec 02 and it's spread all over the shop. finnaly coming together. The boxes near the doors are just from/for the jeep, another engine on a stand in front of it. After the thing is out of there I think it's going to be a mandatory Clean up shop work day LOL.

    hahah Yeah it sucks because he lives 45 miles from me. I don't get up there often. It was worth the $15 in gas not to have to do it laying on my back. I also put some time in on that jeep.
