Well, serves me right for cleaing out my carport on a nice winter day... temp climbed to ALMOST +1 the other day lol, so I cleaned out my crap from the carport, figured I would return the bottles from the holidays, loaded up the jeep, and mind you its like 2 in the afternoon, head to hte depot, come around the corner and out of nowhere, BLAM... roadblock.... something like this


RCMP... 'nice rig'

Me 'thanks' :confused0006:

RCMP 'where ya headed...'

ME ' I turn look at hte load of bottles...'umm the depot' :confused: then to pick up the kids from school', its like 2 blocks from where I am

RCMP 'whatcha do with this'

Me 'take the kids fishing' 'haul u guys out of the snow in the winter' :rolleyes: figured I would try some humor... we do some help me Im stuck work in the winter for the locals.....

I know whats coming, my jeep currently has no mirrors, no mud flaps, no ebrake and a burnt out taillight, its know around town, (small town) so its not like Im some local gangbanger.... anyhow

RCMP... 'ssoooo.... when did ya have it inspected last'

ME ____________________________________________ you can fill in the blanks

I bit my tongue and figured, well I had it coming.....

So over course of hte next few months I guess since my hand is forced, I will tear down and rebuild AGAIN.... if ya know me I JUST finished the SOA springs basically, and this year was the first year I had to go wheeling in a couple so Im a little peeevevveeddd......

It NEEDS, small ****, ebrakes, the mirrors, nothing really glaring, when we did hte SOA, most everything got replaced/fixed etc..... I have a couple of concerns wih the highsteer and the frame fix.... most here wont know what the highsteer is, so Im gonna check wiht my shop here and see what they say...

anyhow here it is in all its glory..... :eek:

ahh man gotta hate the hassle some times eh, but i guess its a good excuse to do the v8 swap. Were you all ready running the welded 30? did you brake it much? nice rig and good luck with the rebuild and inspection.

That sucks. I was in a roadblock in my jeep but it was midnight so they couldn't see shit. That and mines pretty street legal I think besides some minor stuff like flaps and a mirror...

Good luck with the fix
