https://www.sciencealert.com/skin-mites-that-mate-on-our-faces-at-night-may-soon-become-one-with-humans    :yikes:

They have buttholes and poop on our faces at night.

This gives the term :pokinit: faced a whole new meaning.  :laugh:

They have penises and mate all night!

Does your MIT degree suggest that?


Nope.... that's my Mensa I.Q.  :thumbs:

52 years of experience off-roading.  :biggthumpup:

22 years of hard core highly active rockcrawling with some the best drivers on the planet. :gap:

With that said.... the sport is for fun.

Fun means different things for different folks.

I've seen it too many times..... 

A newbie comes to a club meeting.

He goes out on his first trail run.  It's more fun that he expected.

He chats with the guys and gets excited about the experiences they talk about.

By his 2nd trail run, he gets a little shot of the addictive drug and the adrenalin rush.

2 or 3 years later his once beautiful $30K, $40K, $50K 4x4 is thrashed beyond recognition.

He dumps $5K, $10K, $20K into making it a "THAT is what an offroad truck should look like!"

I might have been that guy.  I experienced two Toyota pickups being totaled.

My first 1986 wasn't my fault - it was bad driver.

My 1985 shortbed was my fault - I was a bad driver.  After that, I decided that maybe that was a sign.

I was tempted to build buggy, but I invested in real estate instead.

Now, I 4-wheel vicariously without that fun.... I miss the comradery, all the club activities, and nearly every weekend of locking in the hubs and airing down the tires.

The reality of the carnage and destruction to a vehicle, new or a classic, always hurt my eyes.

There's no such thing as too much ammo, too much money, or too much FUN!

Do you already have a complete running 3.4 and trans sitting around? Not to be a forum troll naysayer, but I feel like that would be the only real reason to do the swap other than "because I can". You're going to put a fair amount of time and effort into any swap, so why not start with something that's a bit less of a boat anchor?

The B.S.C.A - S.2938 has passed the House. :thumbdown: 

They are chipping away at our 2nd Amendment.

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, when Biden signs it, will spark some civil unrest.

Is the price of guns and ammo going UP!!?? :yikes:

There, their, they're, your, you're, yore! How is it this group of monkeys can't get the simple use of a word right? I misspell a few now and then and my punctuation gets a bit lazy, but I know the difference between two, to and too. Good grief!
