    Almost forgot this gem. It takes a badass air compressor, five guys, two high lifts, and two winches to get a tire off an H1, and to reseat the bead, all while still on an obstacle.

    They don't come much more full size than that!
    We are an automobile hand car wash and detail shop that customizes itís services to the needs of our customers: that's The Auto Spa in Plymouth, NH. For some people, automobile detailing means bringing the commuter car in a couple of times a year for maintenance-level treatment: auto waxing, wheel cleaning, UV protection, exterior trim care, and other services that are a few steps above the basic car wash routine. For those who are passionate about their cars, it means getting a complete auto detail every month or even every week. Then there are customers who are selling or have just purchased a car and need a reconditioning-level detail: clay bar treatment, scratch removal, the works. www.autospanh.com

    *sigh* I was chasing the hummer up a bank that was filled with logs and loose soil and apparently dislodged my (unknown to me) already broken front diff from it's mounts, which then fell forward and wrecked an unknown quantity of steering parts.

    The wife and I are planning on going looking at trucks this week. Living out here in the middle of nowhere is a miserable idea without a truck so having a truck is a safety item for us. We're going to pickup something that the wife can drive in the snow so when I get my truck back together we will both have something to drive that's 4x4 for the bad stuff during the winter months.

    Needless to say I'm going to be doing a lot of riding along for trail rides instead of wheeling for the next few months.

    sounds like it's a good time to dump the IFS and swap in a D60 and some leafs...

    sorry to hear that! sux to have your rig down. fwiw, and not sure if you are looking at pu's only, the Jeep WK2 series is a great DD and fantastic in the snow. My first one was a '11 and was the base model. Not sure if you are looking that new or not. the new ram 1500 will be avail with a diesel which is cool too
