I installed the air lift 1000 air bags on the jeep to help support loads (mtb's dirt bike, camping gear) in the back and they work awesome. I aired them up to 35psi to check for leaks and it added like 3 inches of lift haha. Running them at 13.5 psi right now and the ride it great. I can tell they are there but the ride is still great. Way better than a heavier rate spring that would be really stiff when the Jeep didn't have anything in the back.

After I finished the install I notices radiator fluid on the garage floor .... ugh. So, today I am going to take the front end of the motor apart and hope it's just leaking from the water pump or thermostat housing. This is the first time I've noticed it and haven't had any signs of leaking before. Glad I saw it when I did though. Just sucks having to repair it now but better now than in the middle of nowhere Colorado in July.

@87Warrior, how's the red Comanche rebuild/resto project coming? I found a 1961 Willys truck I am really tempted to buy as a fun cool old school truck to have.

@97heep - The MJ project is still stalled out, but I am still enjoying the rusty 86.

We're rural but we have one neighbor that's about 500' from our house. Raw land around here is going for crazy prices - up to $10k an acre. We're getting an influx of people from the Left Coast and there's a lot of Texans buying ranches in our area for weekend getaways.
I would say we should have a day of shooting, but you are a little far away for an easy meet up. Be careful with those left coast people, they are famous for telling everyone around them how THEY should live, then watching the place turn into a sh&thole and wondering what happened. Unfortunately, they then move onto the next place and start all over with no memory of what happened. Just endless virtue signalling. If you start seeing Beta for president bumper stickers, RUN. LOL
Have you done any research on the Taurus tx-22? Looks like a nice suppressor host, I am going to pick one up.

I went out and explored some remote old mine sites. Lots of fun, and a winch line works well for descending. It really is amazing how far down some of these old mines go.

Any idea what they were digging for in those mines?

Shooting with friends is always fun, I enjoy looking at and handling other guns and the camaraderie.

You are exactly right about the Left Coasties bringing their toxic 'values' with them. I remember one that called the police or sheriff when they heard gunshots (start of deer season), sheriff told them discharging a firearm in the city limits on at least 10 acres is lawful.

Complainer wasn't satisfied so they went to the city council - they discussed it, no action taken LOL. Then the offended snowflake wrote a letter to the editor of the newspaper explaining how dangerous this is LOL. God, family and guns here.

Beto is one of our state certified idiots, not sure about his ranking in that group - there's so many.

Not a fan of Tarus. I wanted a Browing Buckmaster .22 but those are hard to find (around here anyway.)

I have three stamps for suppressors and I've machined two of them. The .22 can is a huge success, the .30 cal can is heavy and works okay (really good with subsonic 300 blackout). I still need to machine one for 5.56mm.

Great pics!
Wish I lived closer to UT, so much more I want to explore. I really want to check out the area around Eagle Canyon and the San Rafael Swell.

Led 14 vehicles on annual trip I put together every year called the Ghost Town Tour. Did 300 miles without touching pavement and without seeing another soul besides ourselves. It was epic!

I went back to a place I found about 20 years ago. Its a cool little mountain area with a lot of caves and some natural wind erosion that has made for some pretty cool views.
