Good job. I'm about to begin getting myself back into shape. I'm 260lbs right now, want to get back to about 225. I haven't been under 200lbs since I was 16.

Great job Jim.

I dropped just over 20 pounds this year. Got to 223 lb, I hadn't been 220 anything in probably 10 years or more. My back went out and I have already started putting it back on. The hardest thing for me is hitting that plateau and then not pushing past. I need to get back to it, my goal is to get to 200 or less.

I'm the same way. I haven't been less than 200 since I was a freshman in high school playing football.

I hear you guys on the 200lb thing. I'm at about 216lbs right now. When I moved to Florida in 2010 I was about 255lbs or so. Managed to keep it off with a little fluctuation, up to about 225lbs and then back down again.

Good for you guys getting healthy...I've been hitting the low carb thing hard again but with a vacation coming up this week...we'll see how that goes.

Several of you guys have this radio and like it, right? About to pull the trigger on at least a truck radio, if not one for the truck and a handheld, both of which this radio seems to accomplish.

Thanks!

That's a popular alternative to the Cobra 75WXST. I personally haven't used that radio, but I've heard its a very good one.

It one ups the Cobra by being able to become handheld, where as the Cobra has to be hard wired into the truck.

when I'm not romping through mud holes at work, I'm driving through the warehouse






background story, were putting CBs in all the yard trucks, already got one in mine and another truck. we're setting up a base station in our warehouse distribution office and after putting the antenna on the roof and running the cable down into the warehouse, I drove my yard truck pictured there into the warehouse and plugged the antenna into the CB in it and the other guy took the other truck with the CB in it out and I into the yard to check reception. only reason is because the base station radio hasn't came in yet but it worked out great, prooved my theory that once we got the antenna up on the roof and out of the metal warehouse the reception would be fine

Thanks for the help Nammer, I think I better go find one on a lot to drive or something before I order one.

Looks like my bumper is taking the long way to get here. Went by my local fastenal this morning to check and its still not here. The manager called some last and said it is currently somewhere in Minnesota. It should hopefully be here Thursday.

The one I had on my F250, I removed the front glass from the shell. I could see out of it a heck of a lot better then. My advice would be to get the shell without the front glass and have them install a gasket that seals the shell to the back of the cab. Barring that, get one that has the fold down front glass so you can clean it and the back window of the truck easier.

As was said, keeping the glass clean is critical if you're going to be able to see out of it. I know that sounds like a no-brainer, but you have to be extra diligent with the shell glass than you normally do with the truck glass. Or you could just get used to using your outside rearviews. It's really not a bad practice to use anyway.

I thought it seemed a little out of the way. But the guy who I think is the manager at my local store has really helped me out a lot. Hopefully Thursday, if not then it might be next Monday.
