Well either way I am interested. Put me down for one.
Will do with no commitment needed if you dont like something
Check, the couple of things I have bought from you I am impressed with the customer service and just your willingness to talk to a noobie.
Since am working on the 80s cooling system after it's maiden trip 2 weeks ago, I took the 100 to death valley to hang out with these cool 80's. #GoodTimeOnly with @perrobravo (HDJ 81) and @Dan2722 (96 TYT)
To panamint springs..
Leaving Jail Canyon...
At the racetrack..
I pulled stumps out with the 80 while planting 55 damn citrus trees on our new land
..... with a bit of help from the dogs... we delayed our Big Bend trip to catch the nice weather to get this done... hoping to get later this month.
I'm sorry for your loss......good luck with the front axle!
I got another chance to get out and explore the parashant national monument in northern Arizona. This place is so remote and beautiful. I love the Grand Canyon country.
Took the old gal to work
Don't pull in reverse!
Haha - I only did reverse pulling lightly, enough to get the roots visible so I could cut them wit the saw....agree forward for hard pulls for sure - learned that the hard way on my old 91'....
Cool, I loved when I could take the 80 to work, instead of a company truck.
Is there many canadian drilling rigs down that way now? I'm under the impression a lot of that has moved down to the US with the oil price/economy. The wife and I have even talked about going to texas for work.
I see one chainsaw is a Stihl Farm Boss but what's the other red one? A Echo maybe?
Finally fixed a courtesy light switch on the rear passenger door as my ten year-old can't understand closing the door "firmly" vs slamming it. Note if you ever do this, if you connect the switch to the wire behind the door pillar but don't mount the push part into the door it won't work. Needs to be bolted in to give it ground to the truck body. Don't ask how I know.
don't forget a plate for the cats. learned this when I crushed one at Moab last year. I bolted mine to the bar coming off of my Slee sliders.
Looks like a Milwaukee cordless saw.
@RS6tofj80 I am curious how you like it? I have a Sthil as well but am going back and forth between the Dewalt or the Milwaukee cordless chainsaws.
Took away our trucks, but I see it as an upgrade. I can stretch out without the seats in the back. No idea if they're displaced from the great white north. I see a lot of H&P Flex Rigs over the deeper S. TX gas plays
A buddy of mine bought a wrecked truck that had a nice Alpine 2 din that he didn't need. Don't mind if I do for $50!
Bought a 96 lx450 a month ago from @catfishhands. 96 lx450 with 168000 miles, 2.5" Dobinson lift, 37" cooper discovery pros, fn wheels. Might go down to 35s yet. Don't really need the 37s.
So far it's been an interesting journey. Always have wanted an 80 after having grown up with them. The body and interior were kinda trashed so starting on that. I took the seats out to clean the carpets and this is what happened.
Guess now there's new carpet in the garage and new leather seat covers coming. Got the bumper installed yesterday
Keep the 37s. 35s aren't exactly DD friendly either if that's what you're after.
I wish I went 37
