1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo: Coil Springs!

Just because you have the tools, doesn't mean you need to use them. This is the lesson I learned from this project. That, and when it comes to safety, don't buy tools from China. Coil Springs pack a lot of punch. They support the weight of a vehicle, and when they compress, the power that they store in themselves is quite high. I am not even going to pretend like I would know how to calculate that stored energy, but it does become practically lethal. Like a bomb that you are going to have to manhandle and manipulate in order to get the job done.

2000 Dodge Dakota

So... Yeah. I have been wanting a truck for a while now. There are a few reasons why I wanted a truck. One being that I figured a truck would be good for transporting gravel, and other landscaping stuff. Another reason was that I have found I really enjoy working on vehicles, and figured a project truck would be fun.

I picked up this truck for $900. It is running and driving, but it will need some work.

2007 Crown Victoria Repair: Blown out Plug!

It seems that my car has a mind of its own. The day after I had posted the last post about the intake manifold repair, the car decided to blow out the number 8 spark plug on my way home from work. If it had been number 4, it might of made more sense, but no, it was number 8. Some people commented that maybe my car had heard me talking about buying a truck, and it got jealous. That is also possible. But guess what, I don't bow down to jealousy, so I ended up buying a truck anyhow.
