    When I was living back there I did a big power wash job on an older beautiful colonial home. Perfect reason I needed to buy that big Honda power washer I always wanted:D
    Anyways, I'm washing the ground level deck porch and I'll be gotdammed if one if those mud things didn't start after me. I dropped the wand and hose faster than you know what and took off running and jumped off the deck, only 5 or 6 stairs, and then landed and I slow a little and turn and it's right there wanting sting my ass for disturbing his home. I turn on the jets and promptly make it 20 ft before my feet definitely couldn't go as fast as I thought and I ate shit and in panic I froze. Didn't see it anymore so sprinted to the taco and waited 15 minutes for my heart to fail and it didn't so I just went on washing lol

    I'll let you know. I have both sitting on the shelf waiting to be installed. Maybe today, not sure. I have until the 20th before the return window closes so need to find the time.

    Weird, I don't know then. That's the second time I have used that p/n & both matched exactly the same length as my stock one.

    You talking about the stock skid? I'd remove it. I keep my steel skid on and just make sure to lift right under the point where the cross member is. Never had an issue

    Maybe, I'm not sure. Or he could have got a fake one. Lots of fake ones on ebay. Fake ones go for $40-$50 and look like a standard o2 screwed into a flange. Real ones won't have the hex & cost $100. My first one I got from Amazon, the last one I got from RockAuto. They last 8-9 yrs for me.

    Watching people who think they're getting chased by a bee or wasp is funny as hell to see...unless you're that person that thinks you're being chased. I've fled from many a flying insect before.

    Never been stung by a wasp but I have been stung by several bees.

    The autos and manuals have different length wiring. When I got my rear 02 sensor I had to use my vin to get the right length one. At least for the rear sensor that is

    This. I despise not having a tool or part I need on hand when I'm balls deep on a job. Having to stop once you're rolling is such a huge time killer

    That would make sense. Mine does clip on a bracket that is mounted on the trans. Rock Auto doesn't mention anything about trans type though, they're usually pretty detailed. (Edit: I was wrong)

    I've lifted the cruisers and the tacos and everything from about every place you can. The easiest way to get it high enough to get a tire off usually is under the lower control arm, like sperruner says, for me
    Edit: also take off the skid plate whenever you want, before or after lifting it, no matter. It's kinda nice dealing with the taco, because everything is so light compared to the world we came from

    I always jack from the center cross member, with two stands on the frame rails behind the tires.
