    So I Bought a Niner

    Hey, Speed Freaks, Schizo here. Maybe you've seen me on JF or elsewhere. I've had an Orvis for about 6 months now, and I had a Laredo for 2 years prior to that, but I just picked up a Niner today, for the low, low price of free. So McClouds told me to join up, said I didn't have an excuse anymore.

    If I offend anyone tonight, I apologize. That's not my intention. I'm not going to guess what your personal line of decency is. I cross my own from time to time. It's how I know I still have one.

    Yeah, the same. The hail damage is not as bad as the PO (or would it be the OP in this case?) made it out to be. The worst thing about this Jeep is the headliner sags harder than Edith's tits. I'm pretty sure the rough engine is a bad injector and nothing else.

    Actually, I said as much in as many words on Lone Star Jeep Club and got a warning from a mod for using foul language.

    Why does a forum dedicated to a type of car have to be "family friendly"? I thought you had to be 16 or more to drive them.

    Yeah, that's my Orvis. Got into her 6 months ago with 80k on the clock. Spec'd out Orvis, all the trimmings. It even had the factory running boards when I bought it, though a trail scar has made it impossible to reinstall them.

    I towed the Niner home today. 186k on the clock, injector #5 is toast, and even on 7 cylinders it's faster than my 5.2 Orvis. God it's intoxicating. Who needs hardcore street drugs when you have TORQUE?
