Justin Townes Earle does his daddy proud with a done-my-woman-wrong song. This is "Someday I'll be Forgiven for This" off his 2009 album, Midnight At The Movies. Sounds sort of like Randy Newman meets Hank Williams, sort of...

  1. As I recall, your jeep is only about three years old, and it needs axle parts already?

    My Dakota is 15 years old and still running on the original u joints and doesn't use any oil between changes.

  2. Huh? What's that got to do with Justin Townes Earle? Anyhow, no, my Jeep doesn't *need* axle parts (and it's 5 years old, BTW). But it needs regearing to deal with the big tires I put on it, it's really sluggish with the stock 3.73 gears and the 185 horsepower/225 ft/lbs of torque available from that old AMC straight six, which is built more for durability than for power (well known for going 300K or more miles). Or I could put OEM-sized tires back on it to get my performance back, but that's no fun.
