So....I'm a jack@ss...

So I went to pick up my girlfriend from class last night.
Showed up early... left my radio and heater on (it was cold), and um....
..."kinda" didn't turn the truck on... just let it run on battery power.
Fell asleep.... and hour later... battery's dead. Out of the 20-something people who walked out of the building... NO ONE had jumper cables
Including me, because they are in my bag....in my apartment.

Finally found a friend who had cables, started right up So yea... I iz jakazz.

Note: I didn't know that some Chevy cars have their battery in the trunk? who'da thunkit?

LOL that sucks...I had that happen to me with my Powerstroke. A durango tried to help me but it didn't work. So I found a guy with a Dmax. Hooked my cables right up and my POS started...

most bmw's have the battery in the trunk for weight distribution. people were always confused when they'd ask for a jump and i'd come backing up to their hood

Are you sure you're just not trying to show off your coolness?

Yea, usually I always leave my truck running. I'm always the guy, to the help the guy, who killed his battery like I did. I don't know what I was thinking....

And no, my heater doesn't work off the battery, but I had my tunes jammin

with just the radio on and no lights or anything else you can run it for quite a long time. i left mine on at a field party for like 5 hours straight and it cranked right up in the morning

I've been thinking about moving my truck's battery to the right side of the tool box. It would move weight to the passenger side for the Taco lean and to the back wheels because all pick ups are front heavy.
