Those are good trucks. I had to cut the fender to fit the bigger wheels. But, as it's aluminium, that was easy with a pair of tinsnips.

Son's '95 Cherokee loaded to go to a friend's house for an engine rebuild a few years back.
His first vehicle, bought in 2004, now sits in our spare driveway and rarely driven.
Needs to be sold!!

Those were better offroad than any of the later models. It could be argued that the later models are all softroaders.

For lunch, roasted Hatch chile peppers in my homemade guca.

Equinox today. I really notice how much shorter the days are now compared with the last solstice.

Oh yes. What bugs me is that I know that the next 6 months will be even darker than today.


On the other hand, I should be glad I woke up at all this morning - this is what the controlboard of our water heater looked like when I removed the cover to see why we had only cold water...

That could have taken an ugly turn.

Looks like the Magic Smoke leaked out.

That looks like quite lightweight wiring for a hot water cylinder.

No! Not you as well!?! I've long been taught about the compressed magic smoke!

It's only you guys that don't use 230V. It's always 230V and 10 or 15 Amps most everywhere else. I can confirm that a 230v 15A shock is quite nasty.
