      Well there has been a lot of unrest at the prisons lately! They've been on lockdown more than ever. Pretty bad when even the prisoners become prisoners!

      So I finally got a letter in the mail Friday, telling me my new plates were ready to pick up. Knowing the truck had to be smoged first I dragged my feet and waited to smog the truck so I could take care of the new tags and plate all at once. BAD IDEA!!! :mad:

      Truck passed smog Saturday no problem, so I went over this morning to pick up the new plates. I actually saw them….and then was denied! It turns out that when you smog a car in California there is a 3 day hold on the current registration. Know one can access it. So with that they could not transfer over the plate…DENINED!:frustrate

      I will go back next week and redeem myself!!!! And I will be victorious!!!!!

      Sheesh.. I'm glad I don't live in CA.. Here in Az I get my emisions done and in < 30 minutes I can renew my registration online.. Or I can go there and do it.

      Heck, this morning I was in/out in 30 minutes and I transfered titles on two vehicles, renewed one registration and registered a new to me vehicle.

      BTW.. Nice plate...

      There are a couple conversion Explorers with the hightop around here. They have an enclosed fiberglass roof but i'm going to snap one up if the owners ever decide to sell just so i can do the jp treatment. I'll just have the front section airbrushed to look like a window.

      So I moved the Explorer out of my 1 car garage for the last time yesterday, in preparation for us moving. The guy that lives next us came home and his Boyfriend, jumped out out of the car asking what happen to the "jeep":rolleyes: seeing the garage empty. I told him I still had it it's was just parked in a diffrent spot. He told me how cool he thought it was, and that he worked for Universal Studios himself... Good thing I'm moving! :(

      Those who are not very off-road savy, think everything that is lifted is a Jeep. Mine has been called a Jeep quite a few times.
