Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

So, most guys suggest Toyos and you get something else? This will almost certainly generate some "told you so's" down the road.

Re: White lettering on tires

Or use a grinder with a well worn sanding disc pad to just remove the paint
If you try a grinder on some BFGs, you just get to more white. How do I know? Inside rubbing on a set of flipped 35s on my old GMC.

It is clear we have a problem with the gun laws in this country.
Stack is only partially correct. We have a problem with criminals and crazies in this country, regardless of their choice of weapon. Best current example is the Austin bombings. Aside from that, Stack is a fool.

My barber's grand daughter just graduated from the LAPD Academy. Got her mother's actual badge, not just the same number. Her dad is a cop, too. She could kick my ass six ways from Sunday. That makes me feel safe.

Re: Checking In

Well, it's about time. My '05 is still the best truck I have ever owned, and I plan to keep it for as long as I am able to drive. Also retired, and too damned busy to enjoy life.

Re: Good N Useful land anchor?

I think a Pull-Pal is a better solution if you have a winch. This thing takes almost as much space as a Pull-Pal, weighs almost as much, and is too close in price. If you look around, there are used Pull-Pals available for cheap. I have three Pull-Pals, all from Craigslist. Got a small one (Jeep siz...

At least in CA, Dick's is the worst excuse I have seen for a sporting goods store. No guns or ammo in the few that I have have visited, but lots of stylish clothing and useless crap. OK for baseball bats and jock straps, but I think they should stop selling those because you could beat someone with ...

Re: Good places to move to in the southwest

Take a look at Prescott AZ. In the mountains near Phoenix, but high enough (4500' ?)to stay relatively cool in summer. Gets a little snow in winter but usually not enough to be a problem. Close enough to Phoenix that you can get to the big city if you want to. If I could convince wifey to leave CA, ...

Re: Morimoto fx’rs

Amount of improvement depends on which year truck you have. Factory lights on my '05 were complete crap and I spent a bunch of money on various high watt halogen capsules and tweaks to get better light, but nothing was adequate. So I bit the bullet and ordered a set of retrofit projectors from Retro...

Re: Daul Battery --2014-2018

Even my Cabela's Pro Series 20 amp x 2 charger, set in AGM mode, only keeps them at 13.06 volts. I have the Odyssey 40amp 3-bank charger and their newest 20amp single charger, and neither one will finish my 2150 above about 12.65V OCV after a 12-hour rest. Full charge on that battery is 12.85 or hi...

Re: Daul Battery --2014-2018

Grill area looks tighter on 4G. Hesitant on air flow blocking too... Air flow is not a problem, at least on mine. That Warn compressor is bigger than a pair of Grp 34 batteries and my truck spends most of its fun time in the AZ desert in summer and fall, with ambients up to 128F and lots of slow ru...

you would thing someone would make an adjustable voltage output alternator, so we could run AGM batteries & charge at 14.8v or more.

In fact, I do have a PulseTech Solargizer mounted on the cowl and connected to the starting battery. PulseTech said it would work, Odyssey said it wouldn't. Danny (aka Redman) had one on his truck and he swore by it, so I figured it was worth $100 to try it. It was a waste of money, and now I have f...

Re: Daul Battery --2014-2018

Starting battery is an Odyssey Grp 31 Extreme Marine. Alternator is 270 amp and cables are 3/0 welding cable. It's a good idea to match all batteries if they are not isolated when the truck is not running, but not necessary if they are isolated. Mine are all AGM with similar chemistry and similar (b...
