The Difference between Men and Boys is the price of their Toys
 
I am sure a lot of you have toys and hobbies that soak up your down time. So what do you have? Lets see what the folks of Chiefsplanet like to do when your not talking football. I think it would be pretty cool to post up some pics and videos of your toys in action or just posing.

Here are a couple Pics of my FJ Cruiser, its great for bombing through the desert and a pretty capable rock crawler. Great for exploring and camping in the middle of nowhere.

I've got
1948 Willys cj2a "lefty" I'm restoring and a
1948 Willys cj2a that was gonna be a parts jeep bet her frame and running gear is too good so she's next.
I have one running, neither road worthy quite yet but should be cruising in the lefty by this fall.

Those things are pretty cool. Me and a couple guys restored an old Willy's when I was in the Navy for the command I was working at. Talk about good duty!. It wasn't a "lefty" though.

Do you own a torque wrench?

I was looking at some online and didn't know how safe it was for me to take of my tires and put them back on. There's still some research I need to do.

These days, my toys primarily come in the form of gear. I could post a picture of my new skis I suppose, but that's not all that exciting. :)

Yeah I have a few torque wrenches. Its no problem taking off your wheels and putting them back on. You can ask Discount what they are torquing to when they changed your tires. I think your probably around 75 Ft Lbs.

I've been pretty blessed in the toy dept this past couple of years. Built a cabin, bought a farm, built a pond and some work on my 2nd son and I'm planning a new motor for him when the time is right. way more projects than time these days.

It would help if I know wtf any of that meant.

I sorta jumped into this thing feet first, but I plan on learning as much as I can, asap.

Buck 02-26-2013 11:28 PM

Ok now I know what a torque wrench is and what it does and I feel sorta dumb for asking if you had one lol.

My boat, my guns, with 3 kids I'm pretty fortunate to be able to have those. One of these days I'll get me a JEEP.
