Hey, it's been 2.5 months since I have really been on, and it was because my new field requires a great deal of focus. The good news is, I am just now barely not 3 months behind on bills, and they just opened a Woodcraft up the street from my house(where I can buy belts and whatnots).

I'll be getting to work on the mountain of stuff owed out shortly. Just letting you all know, I'm juggling as much as I can at once!

On a separate note, I have discovered at my new job that Jeeps are pretty much the performance-knife of the car world. It's an addicting, polarizing, consuming obsession, and I am happy to understand it 100%.

Good to have you back. And best wishes moving forward.

Glad to hear that things are looking up for you, Eamon.

My first car at age 16 was a black 1983 Jeep CJ-7, which could not have been any less practical or more fun!

Glad to see you back in the saddle Eamon. Also glad to hear things are going reasonably well.

Couldn't agree more with you on the Jeeps...we are currently on our 5th jeep in a row: 3 wranglers, 1 liberty, 1 commander. Have continuously owned at least one since 1997...still have my first, and it's still my favorite vehicle ever.

PS. Jeeps shmeeps. Land Cruisers rule !!! :-P

Glad to hear things are going good and you are digging out. But 'Jeeps' and 'performance'?!? :eyebrow: Maybe if you are talking about offroad...

Awesome. Glad that you are taking care of your family. God places us where he wants us to be in life to become who we are meant to. We don't understand the journey sometimes but in the end it all becomes clear. Stay on his track and everything will work out for the best.

You're a hard worker. Glad things are falling into place.

Nice to hear that things are moving in yr direction..

had a Right Hand Cherokee Jeep In Malaysia 14 years ago. had a lot of fun with it. It was a serious guzzler and after 5 years, traded it in for the japanese 4 x4 as it was more economical to run.

The dealer had stopped bringing it in for a few years though you still do see some on the road the 3.0 series. with serious accessories for serious off road driving. A rarity though

I suppose SUVs adn MPVs are also the in thing these days in America?

Alot of 4 x4 wheel drive used to be stolen only to be sold in third world countries to be used din real remote places.

Good luck...
