    Wow! That bad boy is ready for some serious off-road. Does it have the inline 6 cylinder?

    You should come visit, I have 2 challenging driveways you'd enjoy.
    3.8L V6

    2006 was the last year the inline 6 was used in the Wrangler, mine is a 2010

    When we've had a lot of rain I have to put it in 4WD to get out of my driveway LOL

    As weather geeks we've always wanted a better personal weather station, so now that we're on a mountain this is the new setup. It is connected to several online services such as WU, WeatherLink, and CWOP. If you want to check it out either use the Wundermap and zoom in to Clermont, Ga, or look up station ID--> KGACLERM7.

    Here's a link: https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/KGACLERM7

    The unit is a Davis Vantage Pro2. Planning to add a webcam later, along with UV and solar radiation sensors.

    My first go, Spent $39 on a kit for the chain. Went to trail ride. Ended up on the moto X track, a KLR650 is called a pig for a reason. But pigs do fly! They do not land gracefully though. Yeah the helmet was awesome. And it fits my long oval head.

    Bell enduro helmet. No way am I taking my $700 Arai to an offroad park and smacking it on something. Also got a chain breaker kit as I put a new chain, sprockets and tires on my KLR650.

    I bought this several months ago. I missed my old S&W 357 that I traded in on a Glock years ago. Decided to try an old style single-action revolver - an Uberti (made in Italy) Model 1873 "El Patron" imported by Stoeger here in the US. It has a factory gunsmith tuned action and is really smooth. A fun gun to shoot, especially loaded with the 38 special rounds.

    I beat them to death cutting steel and rock/tile (with diamond blades) so I wait for the $14 version from Harbor Freight to go on sale for $10 and get 2 at a time. So far I've only completely killed one of them. That was after a solid couple of weeks of eating rock dust and water for 4-6 hours a day. I would feel bad abusing a quality tool in that way.

    Welcome to the club.

    5 years and 46,000 miles on mine and I still find it incredibly fun to ride.

    Does the current tax situation concerning 401 withdrawals related to Covid mean you don't ever have to pay the taxes or are the taxes just deferred?
    Taxes are deferred for 3 years. I'll have them paid off in no time as I have extra cash taken with my taxes.

    I have been really cautious where and when I pull the trigger on the car. Its just a rush to jump out of second and into third. I'm installing the short shifter parts Sunday. (hopefully)
