Yup. Mil serv will do that for ya, I've always said that everyone should go to BMT after high school just for the grow up factor. I'm not saying that everyone should serve, cuz let's be honest, I'd be concerned serving next to some of these assbags. I just know what it did for me and my bros and I feel we'd be in better shape as a country if more ppl had respect and discipline and appreciated what we have and what it takes to maintain it. Too much laziness and entitlement these days and not enough maturity and discipline, ppl don't want to work to earn anything anymore, that mentality never works out well... Sorry for the rant fellas.

Haha no worries man I feel the same way like I said our youth has been become to rebellious its almost shameful what our country has become I seriously think my generation is the last SMART generation.. I said that out loud at work one day and some old timer came up to me and said "that's a smart remark there devil " I died cause it's true... Its a shame.. But for country right? Sorry for the rant..

Back on subject though Connor has sent me my tb and smoked fog lights ... Still standing by on my SRT pedals.. And the new seat covers neosupreme is the way to go

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I train as if I am in the military (or so I would like to think some days!), don't know if that counts ... one of my favourites is run a mile, 100 wide grip pull-ups, 200 incline pushups, 300 squat jumps with 25kg bag on one shoulder (done in sets of 10-20-30) , then run a mile. Apparently that is an easy warm up in the marines I hear ... but yea, hear ya about getting old .. its certainly is not as easy as it used to be!

Completely agree with the idea that some level of military training is very good for discipline, the youth of today are lost in many ways (from a statistical perspective).

On the Jeep side, didn't get much response on which manufacturer of Control Arm Bushings, but I ended up measuring cost/benefits between Moog and Raybestos. I decided to go for a mix of the two, my 'perceptions' is that Raybestos has better R&D history in material sciences and hence would have better material for bushings, and Moog have a big mechanical R&D spend based on the NasCar sponsorship and would probably have better ball joints .. (assuming we are not talking about cheap outsourced work). Placed an order with Rockauto, lets see what comes ... chaining all lower arm bushings and upper bearing as boot ripped on JBA UCA .. must have been the extreme heat combined with off roading .

That's why when I do my mini-lift, I'm going with the RRO UCA's. They come from the factory with MOOG ball joints and are also WAY cheaper than the JBA's.
