    I'ld lean toward the seats. Overdrive will make it better on the highway and between gears but the seats will feel better all the time.

    Quite the change over 52 years. Some work needs to be done to get back in fighting shape. I hope to make the Hot Springs trip this time.

    Jeeps, like me, seem to have put on a few pounds as they've aged.

    Normally I'm a Summit guy. Good pricing, free shipping, easy returns. Summit had these at $500 for a pair and due to size +$50 for shipping. I got them from Auto anything for $400 pair, $50 shipping and 5% off first time buyer so $450.36 to the door. Delivery end of next week :shrug: Slightly nervous about this new foray but im a cheep basturd and theres only so much loot to blow on this thing... Stay tuned.

    Well at least you waited until Jen and I could each spend a day riding in your Corbeau seats...we both found them very comfortable which is good as we are putting them into the 58 wagon. I will say that the seats are relatively small and seemed designed for smaller people, and both Jen and I fit that bill - I feel like I fill up the seat at 5'8" 160lbs.

    Yea I like the seat itself, the padding and density is nice. My issue is the narrowness. The bolstering gets me right in the kidneys and I'm uncomfortable within an hour or so. I'm only 5-9 anymore but guess I'm too "broad" or i just got fat :shrug:

    It's that hole in the Ozone making things shrink.

    I blame it on Global Warming, all Al Gore's fault.

    My clothes shrink just sitting in the closet.

    Well I finally got around to ordering a new Spectra Premium gas tank for my 74.
    It arrived after 3 weeks and they had shipped the wrong tank for some off the wall buick or something.
    Returned it and the correct one arrived today.(3 more weeks) How it survived the shipping I will never know but it was all intact and not bent. The fill spout would not fit inside the carton so they just cut out a hole for it :shock:. Can you believe that?

    How it arrived unharmed is nothing short of a miracle.
    I am going into town and buy a dozen lottery tickets tomorrow morning!

    I am just surprised it did not land directly on the fill spout when they threw it over the fence:lol::lol:.

    Some one asked me if it was possible to load the trailer without disconnecting it. It is possible.
