My garage! I enjoy learning to teach myself to wrench on it more than driving it.

However I do have a shop that does some fabrication for me as my welding skills are still newbie but I'm working on that too.

I mean i just parked my truck in the garage and some freckley faced, death metal listening, anti social, short tempered weirdo cut the front off of it and welded some parts under it and it drove out 4months later on 37s. no way i would have been able to wrench on it, its not like im a professional engineer/super mechanic or something!

Is it weird or something that I work on my own truck?
Wait, you work on your own stuff?!?! I didn't know you were ase certified! When can i bring my truck over? Can I pay you in a six pack? I need to convert the 4.10's in my fj40 to 3.70 for better mpg's.
