Anyone note the cost of a 2018 Suburban 2500 HD???...$80K for an LS!!!!!!

You could buy a low mile 13-15 and hire a Duramax swap for that price I?d bet. There?s a shop or two that does that. And that?s insane 80k for a people mover, yikes!
DuraBurb charges $28K for the conversion. You give them your burb, and they give you a LML powered 2500 HD.
One gen older burb, which I actually like more would cost you say, $15K for a decent southwest burb. So you're turnkey for $43K
Still sub $50K for lift wheels tires and bumper

I didn?t even know the numbers, just knew you could have a much better rig for less than 80k!!! I mean I live north of a little town that is basically full of homes that are sub 100k, much of them near the 60k mark! And to think there are vehicles that are the price of lots of houses. What?s crazy is that I see these durned things on the road frequently.... yep, still in it for the old school! Maybe get a totaled 06 duramax with low miles, and take it and an 89 burb to someone, throw some money at them, come back in a few months and get a freshly rebuilt old body duraburb!!!! Ain?t nothing better than old steel!

Farming, Gardening, and Raising Your Own Food / Re: Raised veggie garden.
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:45:58 PM »
HC,

As TRN said there is no real need for deep boxes. Even tubers can grow in 6-10? of soil. Looks like you have that and more every where. Height is nice for putting seeds in and then harvesting, you don?t bend over as much.

I?ve done raised bed of differing varitions, but current is just a 4x8 that?s about 40? tall. We love it.

Brother of mine and master gardener in WY Has grown in boxes exclusively. Since their first boxes when they lived on post in pendelton. Now he has about 15 boxes and pots.


If your concerned about weeds, ?cooking? the soil does help. Cover it in black plastic and let it sit for a month at about 90*. Tough to do I know, but it helps. Also kills viruses that may live in the soil and transfer from one plant to another, had that happen to a tomato plant last summer. Pulled the whole thing, and didn?t re plant. Going to here soon.

Think about what your going to plant where. Vining plants like cucumbers peas beans and even some tomatoes, can be grown on any kind of make shift trellis. Nice thing about wood boxes, they are easy to add too!

Great looking box, should do well!

a majority of what was shown on that link is what has been turned in because it was beyond the $$$ that the gov wants to spend to have it repaired......so in other words it was all broken and considered garbage


What?s interesting is, govplanet stands by the sale. They are provided with an inspection online, and if you get it and it goes awry in a short amount of time (maybe 30 days or something) they will buy it back I believe. Or when they started that?s what they were doing.

Of course this does not apply to the ones they sell that are stated NOT RUNNING.

Govliquidation on the other hand, you got what you got! We showed up to pick ours up,  fired it up, aired up the tire with the hose that was left in the locked tool box, did a road worthy inspection in the lot, and away we went. Right through the middle of Atlanta, as the lot was in south Atlanta. We sold the truck before moving west, as I didn?t want to drive it the 1800 miles from ATL to TUS, I drove it 7 hours to the buyer in central Florida, that was enough! Of course it was well worth the trip though.

When we bought ours it was from a site like that. It was govliquidation.com, govplanet ended up getting the contract I think though. Because now govliquidation just sells tools and industrial equipment, not very many military rigs.

And yea they?re dangerous, but you can also make money off them if one was interested.

One of the many advantages of scoring higher on the ASVAB test.

Not to junk up a shed build further but I always wondered how well those styrofoam walls with concrete in the center would hold up. Particularly if you stuccoed the outside! I mean up north most use the 6,8 or 10? concrete. I?d like to think even 6? would withstand a significant amount of tornado projectiles and lead/copper projectiles alike.... maybe I need to test this.

I do plan to build a green house as that level of sustainability is on our radar.

But... barn first.
Stew,
Watch for the upcoming geo-dome greenhouse/fish farm thing I plan to build some day, err, week, err month, err year, errr, someday.

Don, as I read your post, all I can think of is the Pauly Shore/Stephen Baldwin movie "Bio-dome".... :facepalm:
Didn't that place go up for sale a few years back?

I think UofA in Tucson owns it. It?s north of Tucson about 45 minutes.

Here?s the link, I?m pretty sure this is what the shore/Baldwin movie was based off of....

My 2 cents (and that?s a high valuation btw).....

Have Nate & Norm come pick it up. If they are still willing that is? Norm has a big shop, he needs more projects (insert eye roll). If nothing else he has a good place to store it for a bit. It gives us all something to harass him about rather than you. Think delegating the work load here, that?s what guys in charge do right? :wink: Once he gets that new shop squared away and a couple other things that are consuming his time maybe this is something he tackles? I?d call Norm & chew some fat, he?s always good for that & he?ll give you an honest opinion whether you like it or not. You probably won?t but what can it hurt. One last thing, Nate needs more miles on that bling new truck anyhow.....

This was my instant thought, but Shawn beat me to the punch. If not them, I?m sure someone with enough knowledge to knock it out is here.

I don?t think this truck has ever been an idol for anybody, maybe a little bit of jealousy, but that is absolutely overcome by the bonds that have been created, the seeds that have been planted, and those who have come to know THE Savior due to the creation of this sight.....which started with  square D.

This is how we?ve been buying beef since 2012. Bought whole cow last two times.

The most recent steer was right at 2, rancher wasn?t exactly sure. Raised in the mountains down in south east AZ.

1000$ for the steer on the hoof.
815lb hanging
.76$ per lb process
85$ slaughter fee
About 450lbs of packaged meat.
Roughly $3.78 per lb of meat in my freezer. Including tongue, liver and heart.

And a boat load of dog bones!

It Was great, and will be doing it again!

hmm.   Thanks Tate.  I wonder if they'll let me through with a pocket knife?

No way no how. Don?t risk it. We have gone to Disney both CA and FL more than one family should, as we like to run their races they host.

Ask my wife about my thoughts on their security and lack of ?freedom? love, rather hate is what is, and she will probably say something like, ?oh man, don?t get him started.?

Radios, wouldn?t risk it either because of the time everything takes to and from the park and security.

We?ve learned that the easiest option is to attempt to carry nothing other than a phone and a wallet, maybe a water bottle. It is a giant pain in the hind end, particularly because the majority of the security are nothing more than a rent a cop with a badge and a power trip.

You?ll see Orange County sherriffs around, which I believe they end up handling the rough customers. I once asked how they got away with what they do, to a young and motivated deputy, his response was akin to a talking point written specifically for it, ?it?s private property they can do what they want?

Honestly, I have a serious love hate relationship with disney, I mostly hate everything about them.... insane crowds, overbearing ?security?, too much tracking via their magic bands, what I perceive as their discontent towards Christians and American values.... basically it is its own country that can get away with whatever they want, with little to no repercussions.

Oh and I?ve watched their security Increase since 2012. And always point out, while blades and guns will most likely be caught, other ingredients to inflict harm could easily be hidden in food products.

Rant off, sorry for the long post.

« on: December 27, 2017, 01:21:35 PM »
So with Christmas come and gone once again the focus is now back to the Jeep and getting it true trail ready. At the moment I really need to finish up the dual battery install and the lights. I'm wanting to run power to the rear off the second battery to use a spare 9K winch I have and keep it removable using a hitch mount. In the past with welding leads and cables I always used a large punch and made do. However, for the cost I have been eyeballing these and with an amazon gift card I received from my youngest daughter I decided that it was time to purchase these.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GVAODYQ/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Also right before Christmas I contacted our very own Tate at his day job for Randy's Ring and Pinion and had him order me in a compressor to take care of air power duties. II order an ARB 12v unit model #CKMTA12

http://store.arbusa.com/ARB-On-Board-High-Performance-12-Volt-Twin-Air-Compressor-CKMTA12-P21341.aspx

So it has been ordered and should arrive shortly.

We ran this compressor for 8 years in our 4Runner. Used it quite a lot and was pleased. Glad to know I can source another one from one of RMTWS own.

The one thing I am going to probably do is add a storage tank on the next setup or setups, cause we want air in the 4Runner and the crew cab.

As for the Huskers....

The tailgating at Memorial stadium is world class...best food and widest variety you have ever seen I wager. Visiting fans eat free is the tradition. Drinking free is also quite normal.

Frost was the plan 3 years ago....now we shall see what he can do with the present mess we have. May be a rocky year or two, we shall see. We spent a boat load of $$$, lots of restructuring, fired a AD, corralled some alumni.....ducks are in a row, now we just need to see what he and the boys can do.

Never been to memorial stadium, but mom and dad have, she graduated there. And then the rest of my extended family lives in NE, one in Lincoln a few in Omaha, grand island and blue hill and Hastings. All big red fans or alum.

Frost did well with UCF so there's hope!

well dang it norm, I could have come out that way and showed you how to make one for $160.

but for real, congratulations, you'll love it.

when you get it, let me know and I can either come out there and give you all the block of inst on how to use it or I can try it over the phone.

just make sure that you get "lump charcoal" they sell it at lowes.  it burns better and longer than the briquettes.

on another note, my cow is done and i am heading out to the cordova meat locker tomorrow to pick it up.

Can we get a write up on the $160 one ;)

On another note, if koot goes to husker games or did when they were decent, he's probably happy to have Scott frost as the new coach?

There is a reason I am not a rep! Just a buyer of other brands. I have only met one rep who didn't push it hard, the rest that's all the wanted to do was push it.

Their potency can be hard to handle in confined spaces, but the "aroma therapy" can be most effective in small confined spaces. Of which we never do! We only use it as a topical. But because we have seen it help with many things we find it worth having.

What exactly constitutes an essential oil anyway?

It's any usable "medicinal" plant that has been pressed, boiled, steamed into an oil.

Think frankincense.... a potent and amazing oil.

Some really common ones are lavender because it's inexpensive (comparatively) and serves SOOOOO many purposes. Tea tree oil, great for lots of things, peppermint powerful for a few things, lemongrass is another one, great for muscles!
What about the eucalyptus? Isn't that about the second best thing next to sliced bread?

Oh yea, that's an extremely commonly used one as well. All we use it for is respiratory issues. Relieving congestion helping open up  our lungs. But I use two blends called breath ease and deep breath more than eucalyptus. It works well and doesnt make your eyes tingle when you put it on the bridge of your nose.

everyone I know runs the Saiga, but only the ones that actually work, and only after figuring out the gas port thing.

Note: With a Saiga, you need to figure out which ammo it will digest, then stay right there. Mine eats green remington 2 3/4 00 buckshot and the 2 3/4" 1 oz slug with no issues, so I just leave it right there. 500 rounds of each tucked away and a couple thousand Italian 00 buck which I haven't tried but feeds well into my 930 Mossy

I feel like this is because of its some what commonality as well as its more readily available. But who am I, I don't own either, or any semi automatic shotgun for matter. However wife and I sure do love our 870s with knoxx stocks on them. My pint size wife can accurately empty the mag tube shot after shot and not be blown away, so that's good nuff id say.

So, after junkin up another spot, getting ousted but not fired by the boss I figured I'd post up a topic on essential oils.

Who all here uses them? What for? Favorite ones?

We use them for all kinds of things from cuts and scrapes, achey muscles after long runs or hard work outs, head aches and respiratory issues. We have had great success with using them and plan on continuing to do so.

So how about if you use them add your uses which oils for what. If you have questions post em up, we'll be able to get them answered.

So you just pop a clove of garlic?  Is chewing it required? How much do you have to eat to be effective?

Bear chewing makes it easier to swallow because well garlic cloves are bigger than any horse pill you can get from the doc. I usually do one or two, depends on how I'm feeling. If terrible I'll do two several times a day. Has worked thus far.

The magic in garlic is called allicin, this is the compound that boosts our bodies as koot pointed out. It is strongest and bestest raw, but cooked you still get some of the effects. And by the way it sounds koot eats it every day.

Garlic isn't new science really, but rather a re-found effectiveness because people want to stay away from medications.

Also as koot pointed out Turmeric is amazing for our bodies, in so many ways. Strangely enough it can used to aid in whitening teeth, yes wife and I have tested this. One of the big ways we use it is in yellow rice!

As it is that time of year, and one has already been beaten hard with some Crud, here are what we use in our house.

Eat raw garlic if you can stomach it. Seems to have always killed any bug I might catch, as I never stay sick long.

Equal parts ACV, lemon juice and raw honey with some hot water, helps heal a sore throats and fight the cold.

Eucalyptus oil on the bridge your nose will help clear it....if you have any. Obviously keep it out of your eyes, the fumes are bad enough. But it helps tremendously!

Oregano oil, clove, and black pepper are also great oils at fighting crud, however they are considered hot oils and need to be applied with a carrier such as coconut oil or almond oil. If applied without a carrier, try a small amount on a small area to see how your skin will react to it.

Eh, lets stop with the negative vibes, man (My Kelly's heros interpretation).

And we were talking about a radius arm suspension mit der 7" 94-98 springs.

And just so everyone else is clued in here, Norm suggests as soon as I get it running, before the brakes or transmission dial in, I rip off the front leaf spring thing and build a radius arm coil spring setup for the truck...just to be clear...;=)

Yes! Because this something I have talked about maybe one day doing to our old dodge.

Hmm. I do remember him talking about it somewhere, maybe just in passing. Thanks.

Wyo, the first one (the smaller PD35) went a couple years before I dropped it just right and caused a bad connection in the led chip...that's after dropping it 50 other times. I've had the new one for about 8 months. I only have to charge it about every 2 weeks, sometimes less, sometimes more. I use to go through sheath lights every 6 months (Maglite style AA led), then switched to Lensers (my second favorite), then to Fenix. I'll never go back. It's as bright or brighter than all of my Streamlight c-cells in 1/3 the size, a bunch cheaper, and lasts way longer. Sorry it's long winded, but I really like those lights! can you tell? lol

That's good info! Long winded is probably better anyways. 

Here I am a huge fan of our few streamlights and have just been shown the light! Will have to look into them some more. Thanks Ken!

Ha!  This one needs to blend in.  It will get a green paint job and I may camo the far side with some brown in addition to the green
How much did it run ya tex? That size out here is 4K ish delivered 60 miles.

I bought the CWOinstead of the WWT (cargo worthy, instead of just a wind and water tight) the CWO is more but its usually in better shape cosmetically and structurally.  Delivered 140 miles from the Port of Houston was just under $4k.  Bought it from a broker online, called Western Container Sales.  Pretty smooth process.

Dang that's a pretty good price I feel. We got ours from a dealer in Tucson. So I guess it makes sense why they are cheaper there, direct from the port probably helped.

When our box was purchased we were told by the dealer it was a one tripper. It does appear that it is as close to brand new you can get. It was 3600 delivered. Neighbor bought two 40' one high cube the other regular, he paid over 4 for the first one and just under 4 for the second. Interesting to see none the less.

I will  enjoy watching it on paint and build in and on it.

Nate, have you seen the light thread from HC somewhere? It was a Fenix review iirc, and that's what I have been running ever since.

note: Fenix has been the best lights I have ever owned, period. They get used and abused at work every day, and normal use at home. I got the latest 18650 battery version that has a small usb charge port, so you don't have to remove the battery to charge....it's the UC35 model.

What's the life span you've seen Ken?

That's an intense strobe! Seizure mode or strobe to most with a thousand lumens!!! That's a lot.

I like cr123 lights because they are often powerful. But I can't buy an ultra mega huge pack of batteries from Costco like I can the AAA or AA. Which is sadly an important consideration for buying a light I believe!

May have to give that one a go though. As I'm pretty sure I bought a tiny Fenix from REI last year, but reverted back to the microstream as the daily light.

Thanks for the heads up on a good flashlight.

Hey, someone is on my side. I have been cleaning slowly (another project) but did find I have enough ridge shingles from my garage to finish this room. 

I like that mod Don. Hard to believe they provide no coolant drain on a 50K truck!
$60K JR...$60K

And that is why I'll drive it a very long time!

Thats if your buying GM, ferd wants 80K plus, and they have now claimed the title of having the first 100k truck... We too will be driving our oldies but goodies until they turn to dust!

Build Threads / SquareD Part 8, This thing ever going to get finished?

Wyo, I was just startin' to like you, and then.............




...darn hippies are everywhere.


I didn't have any other reasonable time reference.....


On serious note, what's the date code on those tires? Now that I think about it, if you've had them since pre 99 they may not have a code, I feel like that is when tire manufacturers were mandated to start printing it on the tire.

I got nothing other than they ride like a steel turd! Being that they have basically sat for what seems to be a lifetime underneath of a non moving pile of steel, I'm wondering if they now have flat spots.

Time will tell, and ken's tires he posted up there that he has had laying around in the AZ sun since H began her campaign 27 years ago sure shows positive possibilities of decent tires.

I believe the one we have is the 391, it's about 6 years old now. These things are truly amazing! I wouldn't want a different saw.... unless I needed a bigger than 20" bar, then just get the 461 (441 maybe?) and be done with it. Good friend of mine who cuts 10-20 cords a year has one, and ran one for the BLM on a fire crew. They just run! Oh And destroy wood.

Just getting here, but dang that's a good looking pile of steel! It is amazing to see that it is capable of moving, even if by outside forces! Glad to see it getting the medical attention it needs!
