5.3 CC with a 6.5 bed? Thought all those were 5.5s?

Good mileage for sure!

TRN, making the door from steel too?

Hope the 6.2 are better than the 5.3 for mileage. I normally got 11-12 and once 16 on the highway! ONCE,,,,,,,,

Iron block 5.3, tune it a little and save some $$$. 20+ on the highway and you have cheap gas there anyway!

I think the Z71 should be lower. I mean a demo Z71 for just a little less than a new Denalli? Plus a smaller engine and you do want a DD right?

Even the 5.3 have like 350hp and a mild tune would always help that. You aren't buying it to tow withe bus around. Heck a dodge is 40k new, tell them that!!

Picked up a new Kolbalt Double compound miter saw, to replace my single miter. Stayed with the 10in, cuts almost everything and I have good blades for it. I also got tired of flipping boards for diff cuts and the motor seemed to get in the way all time, this ones up on top vs DD. 

Got 15% off when they gave me the standard 5 and I asked for the 10 and kept both! Little under $200 and selling the single will offset that alot.

Most of the wall now framed. Hoist came in handy getting the saw upstairs.

Hey, you guys notice Lowes is now selling Craftsman?? They bought Orchard which got them the line.

This could be the first time I drove in on my "Road" and didn't trash out the truck.

I avoided the mud holes and went very slowly!

Thats no fun, but saves washing.

Sean we are playing with vacation transport also. Going on a cruise in mid July and flying into LAX. Have a friend who will get us to Sac and back but transfer to LAX and the Long Beach are $25 each both ways (x5 is more than airline fair). We might just try uber, only a 10 mile

Looking good and never to much storage!

Something hit me with the windows though. Couldn't someone just break a window and get in? Maybe add a bar or cover that with the bars you have to block or close it off, out of site, out of mind you know.

But then again if your on site all the time as you plan on, no biggie.

Are there plans to this or are they winging it like me?

Its 25in across, about 10 tall and 8 deep. 9500 btu cooling and 7000 btu heating.

Sure they make smaller ones. I was quoted 2K for a misti unit of the same size, wholesale!

Now I am framing up the little hallway and 1/2 bath. It will include a closet on the right at the top of the stairs and a barn door to the main dad room.

The plans changed a little from the ones posted earlier and I licked the wall out a few inches and moved the sink to the other side and a cubby for the toilet. I will see what I can draw up.

With the room done it was time for the HVAC to get hooked up. Last of the hook ups went just fine, ending up not needing 110ac at the head unit so I capped off the lead but will still us it to run the system. Had a buddy come by with his pump and meter and it took about 15min with a vacuum check.   

Fired it up with the remote and it is quiet as can be in either heat or AC mode. Has full manual or auto controls on the remote, no controls on the head. The unit shows the temp setting on it face and the vent open closes per the operation, very nice.

This unit was $550 on ebay and worth every penny if it lasts at all. I really like the split system and the garage will be next!

15
Adding a little to this, the vacuum and nailer are working great. If I was to add another nailer I see Hitachi has a cordless framing nailer that works like the Senco.

The Hitachi is #NR1890 and is 18v lithium cordless like the senco, IE; no cartridge just battery. It is still $399 but they have 10% off right now at Lowes.

If I needed one I would go for it but I use screws for almost everything. Now figure someplace like the farm this would be great for! Reviews seem good;https://youtu.be/uRYrLlv_f68

Something about gravel drives I like, looks good.

The Z71 should have a firmer ride, don't go soft on us! I too think a gasser for a DD would be a good idea.

Down answers a lot. Been there plenty of times just trying to keep it straight! Sure that slug in the engine bay didn't help with the short wheelbase.

Glad no one was hurt is the biggie.

Maybe a doner body?

Ouch. Was that a run uphill, picture looks level but the other looks like a run was in the works?

Is the roof that bad? Looks like it took the brunt with the rack.

Have a couple friends with the 3.5TT ford. Runs good and good mileage. Even tows great but the mileage dies when towing, really dies. One of them cracked an exhaust manifold in AZ on his first trip.

With the room done, been working on the garage again. Can almost walk around it again.

Bought another roller cabinet for the mill. Got another Husky that is 24" deep. Other 24s were over 1k and this was just $350. Original was to narrow at 32" and this is 46". 36-42 would have been perfect.

27
Any victims with all the trip to the farm?

I like that. You should see the fan upstairs when I was painting with the airless!

See if I can find a washable filter?

Even stores like it as cash can be pushed through and CC/debit have a trail.

Got the split comp. hooked up, not a lot of space and sitting on the roof.

Thought the AC line was dedicated, but it also goes to master bath and shed. Adding the comp and upstairs bath is way to much for that circuit.

I will run the line over from the head unit which I know is a dedicated #12 line right from the panel.

I would simply form a plate that goes between the 2 tank mounts. If yours mounts like mine you have a bar across the front and a strap in the rear. Couple bolts in the front, zip ties in the rear and a piece of plastic plastic sheet.

I have the skid for my tank and it would not accommodate that sump well.

Looks good under there. Covered with diesel is better than gas!!!

Is there a way to protect that pickup line or run it on the inside. It just looks exposed there asking for something to happen.

My lift and filter are in the same spot. I added a piece of tin there for protection. I could just the you know from the tires doing something to it.

Maybe just add a resonator vs a new muffler. Muffler would change the tone, but not the wrap like a ford has. A resonator might mellow the poping sound.

Spent all last night with mom at the ER. Was crazy busy, finally got in bed at 0400 and slept until 10. Was nothing to worry about but now everything seems like an issue.
 
Heading out now to pass out cards and get a script for here. BBQ for mom tonight and now she doesn't eat red meat I am told???????? Guess I'll leave her in Ca when find a nice place.

Put shelves up in the daughters new room and listened to everyone argue about moving stuff. The Seagrams will get a dent tonight!
