Re: Why do we keep the junk we do?

my wife claims i am a pack rat! i keep al sorts of stuff. dented/bent steering stabilizer...got one under the work table. old u-bolts.....got them too a bunch of them. they come in handy if you have a metal shop like i do i have my linclon 225 arc welder hanging from a couple and a couple more welded on right below that. they are good for coiling my welding leads and hanging them on. i use "junk" for all sorts of junk. my wife hates that i keep all this crap but she thinks it is kinda neet when i turn "junk" into something usefull. power to the pack rats!

Re: Why do we keep the junk we do?

The old parts I keep are a reminder to the ones still in the jeep. It is more of a parts heaven/Hell system good parts are placed on shelves, and enjoy the after life. The very luck get reincarnated as other parts and return to life. The bad parts are smashed, melted, left in the rain, and given an unceremonious trip to the garbage can.

For example spun 2 piece AMC 20 axles are cut apart in front of other axles as a warning. Non spun axles are displayed as a reward for not failing despite design flaws.
