Can you just do an early out exhaust like you did on cmax, stick it out just under the rear tire?

What are the plans for gearing on the front?

Did you ever decide on lift?

While making better of a bad situation my wife suggested that we take some of the ?junk? cabinet doors left over from the wrong size cabinets and make some nice magnet boards.   Got some scrap from my sheet metal hvac guy and used his press brake and cut em out, siliconed them in and used some little picture frame clips to hold it in place. 
Turned out rather nice if I don?t say so myself.

Apparently the clock spring has a sensitivity issue.  I can only blame millennials for the cause of such a stupid device.   Must be left alone, can?t turn to far one way or another, has to be strapped down for other non related repairs.

It has to be a millennial part of these trucks.

Ok folks.

Steering wheel controls have been intermittent, I know the lock spring is bad but that to my knowledge is only the stereo controls I thought?   My heads up display button stuff has been working to cycle through my mpg and A/B miles and so forth. Now none of them have lights or function

That?s I think one of the issues with the trigger.  Some guys reported on the web that if they switched to left hand the trigger worked again.  I need to take mine apart and look at the wear areas soo if it can be fixed.   I have a new impact only for $90 with the three speed selection.  Again used and abused every day

Correct, getting close on having business stuff all moved. That table has 3 inch x 3 inch 3/8 inch wall legs. Years ago I made castors that slip up inside the tube, just need a floor jack and it rolls around, not easy but it does roll. I?ll try to snag a pic when I move it.

I also bought a dewalt combo drill and impact 20v with charger and two batteries for a buck fifty today from HD with carry bag (second set to keep at home) and ordered a metabo 4.5 inch angle grinder 8.5 amp. My dewalt grinder has bearing going out and the metabo units have great reviews, German made off amazon for around $90 delivered.

The impacts gun are having a trigger issue.  The trigger gets kind of sloppy and the next thing you know the trigger pull gives zero response than I does completely.  I have a two year old one sitting and the sales rep said my new one i picked up will do the same


Why no brushless motors?

I as well have a 13-14 pending brand

Duramax is having an issue.  Steering would go back to old school no power indeed slow driving conditions and only unlock after putting power the opposite direction of desired travel.  Trouble shooting showed no wear to any of products that might cause issue.  Gear box was only six months old so I called vendor who next day shipped me a replacement to verify it wasn?t his part.  Blue top gear box for the win

I got tired of the guess and said replace all parts involved. She got a new hydro boost, power steering pump and the before mentioned gear box.   It drives great steers tight and smooth.   Just damaged the steering clock spring in the process.  So I took it to my buddy at the dealership for that part to be replaced

Second shop is looking at the airbag sensors that are going hay wire

Igor sure got some use out of them but I hated most of it. 
My thorogood boots are not waterproof, not advertised as such.  But when that?s what ya have it?s what y wear.  This week has been buckets and buckets of rain passed over from Jr and it wouldn?t matter what I wore I?ll end up wet. Muck boots and framing don?t mix real well on walls and trusses or floor joists.  Flat ground sure but..... I?ll take my leather 8inch boots keep them oiled and wear them.

I have a pair of sorels for when it gets out of control, I also Have a pair of rubber muck boots in the truck also.   All work as intended, the largest issue is water from inside out.   Marino wool socks are great but I still get sweaty feet.  So I toss them on the boot dryer at night to keep them fresh smelling and I like the added warmth in the start of my morning.

I really like the SS idea but have not pulled the plug yet. Had Vivint for a few years, but service was $$$. Live and learn,,,,,,,,,,,

I think a little about hacking with wireless cameras, but not sure if I should. With wired it is easy to add a camera and not pricey.


In a real life issue where someone comes to your home with ill intent what in the large scope will the difference between WiFi vs hard line, secured self contained be? 

Will either stop someone?

I know I ran a bunch of stuff to hard wire cameras but my thought was to not need to change batteries.  My only thought was the power source.

Never had any issues with them being bowed, they are usually pretty floppy.  They do come with a crown from time to time but by the time you add flooring and a second level that is all a mute issue

So what all does this system do Don?  It heats the house via the radiators? It tied into you hot water heater also? You mentioned a Heat Pump?

What do you mean heat pump? Up hear when someone says heat pump I think of the geothermal type where the pump cycles fluid deep into the earth and back into the furnace to reduce need of gas to heat of the electricity needed to run the air conditioner unit
