    Toyota E-Locker Complete Axle $500

    Complete E-locker rear axle originally out of a 4runner, but has spring perches to be used with leafs. The third is good as far as I know (i never wired the locker up but the person before me had it working). The brakes and seals need a go over. $500 located in downtown SLC.

    Fire near Mt. Olympus Trail Head

    I was just coming up I-215 from Sandy, and was passed by a fire truck that was the first on scene. There was a pretty sizable fire between I-215 and Wasatch Blvd. Probably 20 foot flames an a decent radius. I hope it doesn't jump up onto the mountian!:eek2:

    Installing a Yakima Roof Rack on 97 Tacoma

    Black Friday death

    I just saw this on KSL. It makes me really glad I didn't go out and battle this morning. I understand wanting to get a deal and being early, but stampeding an employee is totally ridiculous! I can't believe this is all in the name of Christmas giving :-\

Not quite as sexy looking as the Iphone, but it had some cool applications one of them can read barcodes and tell you where you can buy it the cheapest! I didn't like the size, but I could probably get used to it. Anyone have it...

    Passport Photos

    I need to get a passport really quick and I was noticing that I can go pay 15 bucks for someone to take my picture or take my own but there are some pretty strict rules about it.
