    Major upgrade to the Duckworth!

    Ummm, who's going to blow it back up fix it when it leaks malfunctions. Autopilot on a boat is nice. Not familiar with that unit as I've been out of boats for 20 years.

    Rear diff covers put to the test!

    Not true. I NEVER have.

    I got a new Diesel in the garage.

    Ivan and I both LOL'd.

    Nice looking ride! Ivan and I passed you going the opposite direction the other day. We were out at the property and heading to the range. I had told Ivan what you were getting when I told him about your Jetta and he blurts out "There goes Ben!". Not too many of those rolling around Longview.
  6. I don't hate the planet, just most of the people on it. The rest, I just haven't met yet... present company excluded.

    Fall is here

    Crap, that reminds me... I've got to see if my chains still fit my new tires. I went to a 285/75/17 from the stock 265/70/17. 32" to 34"... My chains had slack but I'm not sure it is that much.

    Fall is here

    2016-2017 repeat would be fine. Just don't make it like the 2008-2009 ( I think that was the year). We did not see our yard from mid-December until February. Christmas Day, we had over 18" of snow. I was clearing 3 trees that came down across the driveway to get to work and stepped off my packed drive. Snow was a little deeper than crotch high. That was an unwelcome sudden surprise. We had a mound of snow from where we cleared the driveway that was in the shade. It didn't fully melt until mid-April. I'm still not ready for winter this year but I am tired of the heat and smoke.

    Lope at idle

    I was thinking injectors. Mine was idling rough but when I changed to the BBI injectors, things smoothed out very nicely. That was at 220K miles. My one experience with an FCA issue (wire unknowingly disconnected) led me to believe the truck would be essentially undriveable. Mine ran so poorly there was no way I could have continued driving the truck.

    Transfer case output shaft seal and bushing

    We're disappointed! We expected some custom fab job for us to drool over for something like this. You have a reputation to maintain on this site!

    OUCH!! That left a mark. Get a rope!

    Annual August bomb party! Aug 18th

    Have a great time guys! Sounds like Hoss is getting his meat ready for you. Ivan and I will be out marshaling antique planes around all day.
