Just keeps getting better.  ;D
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.

Funny thing is. I just picked up a tj for a friend of mine so he can part it out in the new shop (I'm such a nice guy.).  [worried]. So I took the trailer down the interstate, and the tool boxes flopped around more than a politician.  So I'm getting the same friend of mine to take it to his work. (Stainless steel TIG guy) and weld up some brackets for it.  Best part is he is Towing the trailer with a 4 cyl tj on 35's.     ;D  I'm sure that jeep will love that trailer.

MPG has a lot to do with the way you drive. The best I can get in my PowerStroke is 15-16mpg, MawMaw had to drive it while looking for her a new vehicle, she got 20-21 mpg.Go figure.

Mostly the way you drive.   It is stock motor. 80 hp injectors.   Stock fuel plate and pump.   I know it has had alot of time on the interstate. You can tell it is tuned to run 72 non stop. Need to put a 5 inch exhaust on it.  Almost hit 12 going up some mountains.   I also got 14 last weekend hauling the sami over 3 mountains.  :( ,  just seeing what it would do.  Rolling coal infront of samtrack. Lol. :)

I know it ain't right but all the bicycle riders from Chapel Hill  come out here in the country to ride on the weekends. They think they own the roads. I love having the exhaust coming out the right side after being held up by them. I have been flipped off numerous times for covering them with black smoke,which you have to do to get around them safely.
Never knew ROLLING COAL could be so much fun.

I know what you mean, I was towing that huge  2 car trailer to Potts mountain, (see picture 3 on post 13) and it was alllllllllll uphill. and they almost always have a bike race up this hill section.   They always will cut you off trying to go from outside to inside lane on a one lane road. I don't mind bikers too much, but if you are inconsiderate of 20k lbs, I really love to get down on it, while i pass you   ;D


Reminder, it is p pumped so I only have it set in one tune.  unlike you nice electronic guys. It is set to interstate...   [black_s]
