Banky and His Clean Jeep

Meet Banksy, he is is our cat. Much like our Jeep, he is orange and he is family. A few of his favorite places include on top of the spare tire, lying in the folds of the soft top and sitting on the front bumper.

Shrubbery Removal

This didn’t go as planned but the shrub is no more. That thing wanted to stay! My winch and snatch strap didn’t effect it at all. In my defense the Yew was 40 years old and had well established roots. A few swipes of the chainsaw and it is no more.

My wife and I decided that a new JK was in our future. The first step was seeing if one fit in our tiny “2 car” garage. Good news, it did. I feel bad for the sales guys. This was the first 2012 JKU on the lot and he thought he had a for sure […]
