This a feeler sale...someone talk me out of it. :D

Picked up a set of slightly used Donahoes a few months back. Previous owner states he had it on for just a few months and a few thousand miles. I bought it with the intention of doing the Icon remote reservoir and extended travel rebuild, and have been sitting on them since. Now that they are finally ready to accept them for rebuild, I'm having second thoughts. The price is exactly as I expected...~$500 for the rebuild, $400 for the Light Racing UCAs. BUT, not shelling out the $$ for this, and dumping the Hoe's would be a $1500+ swing that would certainly pair nicely with the purchase of some beaten down stocks. ;)

After a few months to breathe, as far as not really modifying the FJ, I began to reflect on how large a money pit this truck has begun. I usually go full bore with all my hobbies, but this has just been insane...I'm sure many of you guys can empathize. That said, the OMEs I'm currently running are sufficient enough for my uses, so I'm contemplating selling the Hoe's for essentially what I paid for them...$650.

Lucrum's swingout may be on sell as well, if/when it arrives. But, that's a discussion for another day.

Oh man, don't even say that :( :(

The only reason I havn't been stressing about the delay is I havn't been healthy enough to install or use it anyway. But now that I am feeling better, I check for an update every day ???

At least I am pretty sure I will get it before AllPro even released theirs

2nd step is facing your problem and confronting it. You need to go cold turkey, so hand over the keys!
