Today started out great, then got a text from last night proving that "No good deed goes unpunished". Many here remember that I gave my 2003 Hyundai Elantra car to my wife's daughter because she complained that she had no vehicle to get her life together and find a job. Nobody knew if she was doing drugs or not. I'm broke and gave her the car hoping for the best. I told my wife I was positive she was doing drugs and won't help herself. Found out last night that she is doing meth and gave the car to her son. I'm glad she gave the car to her son. The kids dad had a bad accident on his job and over dosed on drugs a couple of years ago at 35. Sorry for the downer on here.

Dang Boog one side stinks, but there is a bright spot also!!!!!

Contrary to what anyone says you are still a good guy!!!!!

Buddy my dad passed away and left 10 vehicles-

My brother who stays awake for four days at a time and sleeps for two weeks and is nearly ambulatory during that phase doesn’t do drugs. He doesn’t work, Everything he gets his hands on disappears, He refuses to take court ordered drug tests, And lives in a drug den and has texts on his phone trying to buy and sell drugs. Has no teeth. But according to my mom “ her child” does not do drugs. Her child is 62 week after next.

I admire him for being in the middle of all that and not doing drugs.

So he stands at the funeral home parking lot when we bury dad telling me what he wants- He tried to kill dad and pretty much lost his rights to about anything.

There was one vehicle that was going to be a pain and we gave it to him and it immediately disappeared and the next thing I know it gets found with drugs in it and he had never taken it out of my name. He had immediately traded the car for drugs- I’m sure he did that to get those drugs out of circulation and keep himself and other people from having to take them. He is amazing.

In other words it is amazing how people want to be blind to what’s going on and people like you and I can see right through it.

Mom says she is sure he can quit anytime because he has quit before. Well mom, If he actually quit before he wouldn’t need to quit again.

I’m glad the kid got the Elantra- That little fellow is the one my heart breaks for- losing his daddy.

You did a good thing. I don’t know if it’s always been this way but it’s just hard to help people....At least someone got it that needs it.

Re-installed the painted front exhaust pipes and new painted muffler. Also installed new Tom Wood's front and rear drive shafts, OEM style and a new OEM style transfer case skid plate. Filled the rear differential up with new gear oil, filled the engine up with fresh motor oil and hoping and praying that the rear Pinion seal, the new RMS and the new Oil Pan gasket seals function as intended. and that there are no leaks in the morning or anytime soon....

Don't forget some kind of circuit protection - that high current circuit runs all the way to the front of the Jeep. Both this 500 amp fuse and the solenoid can be bypassed quickly in the field if they happen to fail. I secured the wire end with a strap as well, you don't want to leave it loose as shown here.

Thank for the great suggestion. I bought a couple of these 500A fuses today. Will install tomorrow.
