    I am really impressed with the Milwaukee - it's spendy but the battery life is really good, to the point that unless I'm using it on larger than 8" stuff I almost never run out ..... be sure to get the larger battery - I have most of their other cordless stuff but find the smaller batteries will last less than a third of the big one and seem to provide less initial power as well.

    sadly had to use the 80 to winch the Merc onto a flatbed ....... had to tow her over to Austin to get the intake gasket replaced. Hoping to pick her up this weekend..... upside is that their going to re-tune her on the dyno and finally install the lightweight driveshaft and a 15lb Braille to replace the 54lb anchor Merc Battery

    It’s a special drill bit, but not for drill.

    Tires not aired because tpms gauges not delivered yet. If it be aired it’s been more easy

    Hmm. Daily Driving an 80 on 35's for the past (almost) two decades has been wonderful as long as you ignore fuel economy. Want to talk about what's not ideal? Try daily driving a 2F powered FJ40 on 37's sixty + miles a day for 8 years. :) Loved every minute of it!

    I don't think our cruisers qualify as a compact.:flipoff2:

    Presumably assigned by someone that hasn't seen your vehicle:)

    well long story short, it wouldn't fit down in the parking garage, so they assigned me a visitor spot next to the handicapped parking. oh well. I don't really care, I don't DD, i usually take the metro.

    It looks like you could move the one line over a bit some evening......Lots of room on the other side.:idea:

    I don't either when I drive the cruiser to work - Fridays mostly. I'm allowed to park in the visitor parking marked for contractors and delivery vehicles...with a little printing at the bottom - Vehicles over 6'8"! That's me!

    Not so great weather today, so I just put on new lift gate struts and then plan to check out these emergency valve stems out over the weekend. I decided to stock them on my site mainly out of curiosity, but they are really pretty sweet in person so I will probably stick with them. They are better than I expected, a simple concept and lots of users out there seem to really like them. Once more thing to add to the tool kit:)
