    Bear spray?

    Regarding ammonia, I grew up close to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and have done a lot of camping there. When 4X4 camping and of course lots of cooking I always poured a full container of ammonia in a bowl and put it under my truck.

    4 Cylinder Diesel

    I saw a post on FB. Real nice new Cummins 2.8 conversion into a 60. He had a shop do it and when the final bill came it was $28,000. Ouch! He loves it and claims to be getting 28 MPG.

    Anybody used cool cruisers seat covers

    I went with the Duck canvas ones from SOR. They fit like a charm but were a little spendy.

    First things to do after buying a 60

    Yep, stay away from synthetics. Delo or Rotello diesel engine oil is what I use.

    Suspension Lift Kit 101 questions

    Can't go wrong with an Old Man Emu suspension. I went with the medium springs and the ride and stance are great. I purchased mine from Kurt at Cruiseroutfitters in Sandy, Utah. MY 33" BFG AT's fit just right. Welcome to the madness.

    Any Tesla owners

    Agreed. With all the advances in automotive engineering you would think they would get better. I always admired the Defenders from the 90's and came real close to buying one but glad I discovered Toyota products.

    Any Tesla owners

    Tesla finally had to give it up regarding quality rating information. They appear to be in close proximity with Tata Motors.

    Retinal Tear/Detachment

    No mac degeneration, just damage from the tear. I am RT eye dominant so the battle has begun with my left eye. No eye patch for me in that my doctor wants my brain to begin to adjust to the altered image it is getting. I drove today and ran a few errands, even stopped by my golf course for lunch...

    Retinal Tear/Detachment

    Ok...Just got back from my appointment. We are at the 3 week point post surgery. My Doc told me something that she didn't tell me the last visit and that I sure as hell didn't want to hear, that the retinal detachment also went into the macular. So...instead of having some residual, slightly...

    Retinal Tear/Detachment

    Yes, I am still doing the drops. The dull ache was in the RT eye, the one with the detachment. Seems OK today. Had me worried and I did call the Doc about it but she didn't seem too concerned as long as the vision is unchanged. One day at a time for sure. This has not been easy. I am a super...

    Retinal Tear/Detachment

    Thanks for asking! So far so good. Bubble has gotten smaller and the Doc has now given me more face up time. !/2 hr down, 1/2 hr up and free to walk around. I go back this coming Thursday to see where I stand. I have had bouts of a deep, dull ache and sudden, burning/itching eyes. I take a...

    Retinal Tear/Detachment

    Had my week follow up. So far so good. The doctor cut me some slack and now I have to be face down 1/2 hour then free a 1/2 hr. She also lasered two retinal tears on my left eye as a precaution. Boy that really hurt to the core of my eyeball. I wasn't prepared for that one, anyway thanks for the...

    Retinal Tear/Detachment

    Thanks for the feedback Bilt, face down isn't fun. Yesterday after my appointment I now have a blurry green hue like looking out of a fish tank hope this is normal kind of off balance too still not over the shock of the whole thing

    Retinal Tear/Detachment

    Thanks gang for the support and responses. My Vitreo-retinal specialist Doctor said that the surgery went well. Right eye had 5 retinal tears in addition to the detachment. Try to adjust to the uncomfortable face down positioning for recovery. I go back next week for a check up. Still in a bit...
