case of \'while I\'m at it\'-itice

Well as mentioned in my other post, I have the radiator out of my cj. Well I got to looking around in there, and started thinking, 'wow, I may as well change that water pump while its open in here, and I should look to see how the timing chain is doing, and that power stearing pump is leaking a bit....'
I am sure most of you know the drill. My Jeepchick starts looking at me and saying, 'You better be glad you got that bonus check from work!'
One of the things is, We are going to parker az. next month and I don't want anything to happen while we are there. I hate spending a bunch in one month on it. I want to spread it out over as long as possible.
oh well, thanks for letting me ramble.
in the loud booming voice "NEXT!"

If she starts getting too anxious about it, just explain that you are doing it out of love and respect for her. Explain that you would rather do these things while she can enjoy the comfort and safety of your home (and you can use the BIG tool box), rather than try to get them done in South Po-Dunk Arizona at 2:00 AM on the side of the road in the driven snow.

Kind of makes all that garage-work sound nice, eh?

You know, while you're at it, you might as well spend the $20 on the blazer heater motor upgrade if you haven't already done it. I have yet to meet a woman who didn't appreciate more heat in a Jeep, she'll love you and praise your thoughtfulness.

Someone explain to me how the core temperature of a Woman is higher than the core of the sun, and they still need an extra blanket?

If they are so damned cold all the time, why do they keep the hands, feet and butt in the freezer just before going to bed?

Inquiring minds want to know!!! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

You might even want to think about a rear heater now you have the heater hoses just doing nothing....

So many cats, so few recipes...

LOL my wifes feet are at least 20 deg. coolder when she decides to go to bed. I have always be warm, so she is RIGHT up against me trying to take all the natural heat out of my body.
