Our Heros, The "Hooah" or "Ooh-Rah" Place / Re: Tootsie Roll Marines
« on: February 16, 2019, 07:11:28 AM »
Us Army wearing Marine combat patches...We've already seen dogs and cats livin' together, and boys married to boys...So I hate to think what's coming next???

Marines wearing Air Force patches??????? :shocked:

I said I had it, NOT that I wore it.

I only wore 1 combat patch, and when I didn't wear it, I was generally wearing my EIB.

My first deployment (OIF3 05-06), our entire brigade served under II MEF. I'm proud to wear their patch on my right shoulder. Good folks to serve with. I've never had an issue serving with Marines, but that doesn't mean I don't give them a good ribbing. ;-)

3rd deployment (05-06) my BN was split between RCT2 out of Lejeune and the other half was assigned to USASOC. After a spell of up and down the Euphrates river valley we went back together under USASOC. So I have the RCT2 patch and some others.. lol

It wasn't ready as it was.

Springs have settled enough to allow it to ride on and flatten the rubber bumpers. The engine had like no power, not like I'm used to. Suspension not driveline would support where I plan on taking it. And it has spent the majority of its life parked. It needs all those rubber parts gone through, new shocks, and who knows what. The body and interior is great, but while I'm doing all that routine stuff, it makes good sense to go a step or two further and get it done to a good point where it's very capable and a cool fun vehicle to sport around in.

It will work out, you'll see.

Here's what I see:

Replace the springs, yes heavier duty for the upcoming bumpers and etc.

The engine probably had the power, but you've been driving a 6.6 Duramax as a daily so naturally there's a difference in the power you'll feel. I get it as a guy I want immediate power when I hit the go pedal, but you'll adapt to the difference.


Stock shocks aren't expensive, minor upgrades for the suspension and bushing and etc also aren't going to hit your account as hard.

Remember work begets work, well work begets work beget you getting burnt out on a project and having to take a break from said project and the timeline slipping further. I'm not telling you how to spend your own time and money, merely suggesting that you not attempt to get it all done of what you think you want done whereas stuff you should do and get done, are completed knocked off the list and you have a reliable driver for your trip, without going overboard and causing headaches.

My goal at the moment is get to the point I can drive it to start sorting and then move on to bumper building.

It was able to be driven after you finished the motor. Everything that's been bought and planned on buying, planned on upgrading or adding has only pushed your timeline further off where you originally wanted it. It's been mentioned before run it how it is for your trip, have fun and enjoy yourself, and when you come back you'll have a better idea of where you want to upgrade/change. I doubt anyone you stop and visit will deny you and the youngins a cup of coffee and some company if the Burb isn't lifted with a LSD, offroad tires and a 1 piece driveshaft new injectors.... you get my point.

Remember just keep it simple until you see what NEEDS to be done vs what you WANT to be done. Once you got that done then you can go hogwild.


EDIT: How have I become a voice of reason?

Meaning no differential cover? Third member drop out I’m assuming?

That's what I'm thinking. I even called the dealership to confirm and they can't find a part number for it, everything they saw is a 2 piece. Drain and fill from ports but not popping the cover off.

my noodle game is not strong at all, I think I have made fresh pasta once.

I have not found a good Asian market here yet to get fresh noodles like that.  all of the grocery stores here suck on their selection of both Mexican and Asian ingredient choices.

I know what you mean, there's a few small Asian markets around the area, however I never see them open. One day I'll just buy a pasta maker and give it a shot.

Ehh veggie ramen isn't much of a bait. However I do like chicken ramen.. but gave it up awhile ago.

Hey I had to work all day, not all of us get to live the retired life! Didn't even make fresh homemade noodles?! For shame... especially since you're heading to the gym.

Finally saved enough of my allowance to get the new 9mm Glock 45.

The g45 is basically a g19 slide on a shorter g17 frame. It’s NOT a “black g19x”.

1. Does that mean you need to sell the Higher Caliber Concepts G17 of lore? I mean gotta make room right?

2. I am waiting for your review, yes I know there are some on the youtubes but I can pick your brain. I saw a g45 early last month and it made me think.

I feel like a wimp complaining with my -1 and -30 wind chill

Right now I'm at -45 windchill, and dropping slowly.

It's a small Army (especially nowadays!).

Well even worse is I typed the wrong info in. Ugh coffee is needed bad. So I removed the erroneous info. Early part of 05 I was actually back at Bragg, getting ready for deployment, that we were stood down for "because we didn't need another infantry bn in the area" so to make up for it they sent us to be instructors at West Point for the summer, only to find out that we were in fact needed. So then they sent us to Iraq instead of Afg.

Morning Bobby.  The craziest thing was tailgating at Lambeau and walking up to the beer tub and the beer was just laying there, with no ice.  I was like “where’s the ice”. They said, dude, its -3 degrees, its plenty cold”

I've put stuff I needed kept cold in the snow while hunting.

First time I saw a “minus” sign was in the dash of the rental car I had in MN.  I flipped out.  Had to stop and take a picture and send it to my wife.  I had no idea the thermometers in the cars actually had a minus sign in them....

Well to make you feel better, the road surface temps range from -10 to -23. The road itself has that temp.

I have a 2013 Jeep WK2. I can see what I can do, but might not remember. If I had Square D or something similar like that it would be a bit more impressive of a video.

I doubt that you would ever use all the power that it's going to make in it's current form. You going to pass someone at 6000 revvums? Probably not. If you're power range is 2-4k then you're just pissing away money.
I'd tune it the way it is, upgrade as you see the need. Injectors are easy to swap.

Smart. I like his thinking and didn't Ken's advice end up being a good idea when you finally pulled the motor?

Yup! We had a neighbor, 2 Golden’s who free range her whole house. My youngest daughter still walks her dogs several times a week. She always felt the need to bake and bring us food, dog hair was extra at no charge......

We recycled that stuff every time!  :wink:

Oh it's not really a hair in the food thing. It's a couple different things really, so generally when I get the office emails about the potlucks I always have my lunch with me.

A task to which you would be well suited there, Airborne!

Volunteering to eat free food? Yea I can do that, however if you talked to people I work with I generally don't partake in the potlucks et al the coworkers have. I feel weird eating people's food; well maybe weird isn't the correct term, just don't prefer to eat food some people prepare.

no sir. i don’t need it tomorrow or anything. i just wish i knew how many miles were actually on it. bc the last one i looked at and got close getting one that had 440k instead of 140k as the owner thought. but it has 200ish K on it 3 years ago too. but fortunately was kept up with at the DMV and such. but this one hasn’t had a thing recorded since 2015. so..good and bad? from 2012 to 2015 it only had 15k put on it..

i just don’t know. i wanted to just get a good low mileage runner that just needed up and down pipes. EGR delete and intake. and modified harness.

still awaiting the sellers response. i’ll contact him maybe mid week if i haven’t heard back.

Makes sense, but if I was in this situation and had the storage area and the ability for the time and effort that you clearly put into the other aspects of the build, I'd just keep it and make it better. But that's me. Good luck either way.

Bobby, Might be a little of the camera angle but yeah she was leaning too far back. She is very much a rookie and 20.. so my goal was just to keep the muzzle pointed down range. :)

True, down range is always appropriate. Nothing wrong with being a rookie, everyone was at some point in their life, as long as she's willing to learn and improve it's somewhat easy learning curve.

I was close to buying that watch when I bought my last CORE. Although I still love the old Vectors, wish they never stopped making them.

Wow. Shot detection?  Does it give you direction of incoming fire?

It's for hunting. Drops a pin on the route so you can go back to the original location to start a new search if you lose the trail, or it gets too dark to track the animal.

I still have my Suunto Core, so I have the large diameter watch. I just wanted something simple and I can use for diving and general use. I still have to get a dress watch for those rare moments I have to put on a suit.



P.S. Nate, I'm still waiting for you to decide to give me one of those Marathon SAR watches.
