    Looks like I'll be living vicariously through all the cool kids that get to do fun stuff to their truck for a while... this remodel is kicking my ass and tapping me out. lol

    Stumbled on to a couple pretty damn good deals at Lowes last night.

    I burned up my corded drill hogging out for a second shower valve (through porcelain tile and 1/2 cement board). So I was looking for a new one. I also like corded drills for when I'm working with metal. More torque and don't have to keep switching batteries.

    Anyway... Lowes has 3/8 and 1/2 chuck Metabo drills on Clearance for a SUPER good price.

    https://www.lowes.com/pd/Metabo-HPT...-8-Amp-3-8-in-Keyless-Corded-Drill/1001299652

    https://www.lowes.com/pd/Metabo-HPT...ls-9-Amp-1-2-in-Keyed-Corded-Drill/1001360756

    I bought both :anonymous:

    Stock would be just fine... I'm itching to just get out and explore Stanislaus Nat Forest more. There are some spots that can stick you when it's muddy, but I've got a winch and straps and so do a few of these other guys.

    But most of where I want to go doesn't open till end of next month, or later.

    So.... where can we go and explore, and who's in for exploring? I'm f'n tired of this remodel. I need to get out and do something.

    I want to go here, to my spot, but those gates probably wont be open for a month or so... anyone have a snow mobile I can borrow?




    I just realized, it's been 2 f'n years since I've been to this spot :pout:

    I’m pretty sure it just dumped fresh snow up hwy 108, so most of the high country is probably closed above me . It snowed Monday at my house .

    Lol... They don't give that much lift. More like 2 to 3 inch lift. But coilovers are more adjustable, because you can infinitely adjust them by threading the collars up and down.

    Also the rear shocks don't lift anything... you'd need shackles, an add a leaf, or a leaf pack, to actually lift the back.
