    OK, so chalk this one up as a stupid question that I am too embarrassed to start a new thread over, so I'll just ask it here.

    Am I correct in thinking that all KJ front shocks are basically the same length?

    Well I have been thinking about trying to buy a house again. Haven't had much luck the past couple of years due to market fluctuation, and the damn Canadians buying all the houses with cash. Long story full of rage there...

    So, I went to cruise by this house I have seen online. House is perfect for my needs, perfect size, big garage, 4 acres of land, right next to a million or so acres of blm land, out in the middle of nowhere, priced right, etc. Ended up having to use 4 low to reach the place and almost got stuck. I don't think the ol' lady's Ford Fiesta could make it to within 5 miles of the house. :icon_lol: All the roads are either sandy as hell or washed out. It's a damn shame too, the place would work out awesome. If a car could make it there I would be all over it first thing in the morning. The search continues I guess. :(

    Just did, got it about 6 months ago. She loves it and I doubt she would want to part with it. Wish they made a 40mpg 4x4, then she might reconsider. :happy175:

    The road to hell may be paved with good intentions but the road to your dream house can be paved with asphalt. Call a construction company and git 'er done. :superhack:

    That's a great idea. But I wonder how much 5 miles of asphalt would cost though?

    And I am not sure what the county would have to say about me paving their road. :D I haven't given up yetthough. Google maps shows another way to the house. Also talked to my better half about it. I am going to call my realtor about it tomorrow.

    Same here. :blah:

    More of a tease for us though... it was sunny here until about 3:00pm. Way to get your hopes up. :emotions34:

    You didn't miss much ... I saw it until it sunk below the horizon. It was just extremely bright. I don't remember the sun being that strong ever. Should have worn a welding helmet maybe I would have seen more. :shrug:
