Thanks! :fing:
What size tires? I'm going to need some new ones this year.

Matt, 850's with 1" Mr. Gasket spacers should be at about the same height as 850J's, at least that what I'm thinking (hoping). I doubt the difference is more than 1/2", but I'll take some before & after measurements to be sure.

And Chris, if planets align this spring and I end up regearing, I'll definitely have some AT's available, will let you know!

Default 80 on steroids

Yes, Kevin, that was our 80 you saw on your street. Our homework is to drive it 500 miles to break everything in. That should happen before Moab, unless we drive it to NM and back. Do you keep your 80 parked in the street all the time? I'm afraid to do that for fear of getting it either stolen or broken into. Around Thanksgiving last year, I had a 1979 FJ55 and the car hauler trailer it was strapped to stolen from work. Following that, $2,000.00 worth of my personal tools were stolen from the lobby at work. (We put the tool box in the lobby for safe keeping so they wouldn't be in the back of the pickup at DIA!) The Sheriff was helpful. He said there was no use in looking for the stuff since it was probably already in Mexico. Remember all that next time you visit Weld County.

Hi guys,
No! It usually is in the garage but currently it's stall has Amy's Acura in it on jack stands again, waiting for parts that Amy must buy. (It's about to get pushed into the driveway! )
I remember when your 55 got stolen. Never found it or anything?

Are you coming to the meeting Wednesday?

Yep, we'll be at the meeting on Wednesday. Not sure we'll stay for a beer afterwards since we're up at 4:20 and off to the pool at the gym. (Trying to stay young!).
