Over a year ago I retired, and have been busier than ever, but I still check in. Kind of depressing, though, I wonder where everyone has gone. As this board was going down I had the thought that two factors were in play. One was that the economy was going bad and people didn't have as much money for their toys. The other was that old Jeeps inevitably go away, and the new ones are more difficult to do much with other than bolt on aftermarket stuff. The aren't many people making the kind of major modifications we made to our Jeeps. Yeah, it's still being done, but I don't think there is nearly as much being done by owners in their garage. Ah dunno.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

My problem was partially the economy and shortened work hours right about the time my kids started hitting college so that cramped my Jeep style quite a bit. My daughter, my youngest is about to finish up her second year now but got a free ride so that helped out a lot. Still have all the Jeep's, started working on the m715 few months back and my buddy finally got me the title for it. This kinda has me urked. My buddy had this in his name since 2004 and tags expired in 2013 I believe and when I went to transfer the title they told me my title was no good and it had been registered in Texas for the last year. He has been going rounds with Texas with no luck. Trying to get a title in Missouri is a pia so he lives in Arkansas and is going to try and get another from them. Trying to get back into the Jeep world but trying to find the time is my problem. Told the wife I want to add another bay to the shop for days like today when I actually have time that I can work on my stuff and it not be in the way.
