    good grief! thats a lot of poop. No doubt if I wrote it all down I'd have a list maybe half that long... which still seems like to much. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif oh well, one is never really done with this kinda thing, it just sorta evolves.

    Lets see, i have to

    clean up after the dog
    pick up the kids at the in-laws house
    wash my wifes car
    paint the garage
    walk the dog
    take out the trash
    buy presents for my wife and kids
    explain to the neighbours kid that if he parks his F**cking Civic in front of my garage again I will push it to the other side of the street with my truck and drive over it until it can be used as an ashtray, did I mention that he bothers me.
    then when i get through being whipped I will try to find time to Herculine the interior of my truck

    Merry Christmas to you all and try to at least spend one day with your family before you lock yourselves into your trucks for the rest of the holidays /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Just tell the kid that the next time it's in your way you're going to hook on to it and move it. And say if you're feeling real nice that day you'll hook it on to something besides a control arm. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    What I need to do: Save money for new rear suspension (Either Springer Suspension, or BDS Lift springs) 35" or 36" Tires and 8 lug rims. ORD 1" body lift and new poly mounts. That will get me wheeling again. Ofcourse, Then I'll want some new bumpers and a winch. Yes, it never ends, but then again, I don't think I'd be happy if it did !!!!!!
