Oh Man! Spring Fever!!

Dam# what a feeling! It was so nice after work today, I had to crank up the Jeep, drop the windshield and take it for a spin! Screw streching the wheel base and body. I can't make it that long without driving it! There just isn't much that compares with the smell of a rich small block on a nice spring day. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] My son was just grinnin' from ear to ear riding around with me.. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] He wouldn't open his eyes, but he wouldn't stop grinnin' either! I'm still going to upgrade my axles, tranny, and springs. I don't think I'll go spring over because of the short wheel base. I found a way to move my clutch/brake/go pedal over further to better fit my feet positioning, so I don't need anymore leg room. Happy Jeeping you guys!! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Oh Man! Spring Fever!!

Nate, you gotta move out West. Sunshine for the past few weeks. I haven't seen snow off the mountains since the first week of Jan. If I had a garage for the night, the top would have been off a month ago.

Re: Oh Man! Spring Fever!!

That would be too much!
I wish that it would be that nice here, but the transition certainly takes a little longer, i mean, i am still wearing my long johns!
now the problem of getting the money to do all the "little things" that have to be done before she hits the road.

Re: Oh Man! Spring Fever!!

I think this may relate to CJDave's post about there being 4000 post in about 2 weeks. We all love our JEEPS so much that we come here and talk about them since we cant rip the top off and enjoy them!

Re: Oh Man! Spring Fever!!

Drove to work yesterday and today without the doors. After work today, took the top off and went for a drive. I'm ready for spring to get here too.

Re: Oh Man! Spring Fever!!

It seems like it was forever ago that the hard top went back on. I really had the itch tonight after work to take it off and try to pry the cold, stiff soft top on or at least go for a ride. Can't wait [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
