    Evening all,

    Long week getting the Museum ready to open all the things we've not done since March is now on us before opening on Friday.. Probably won't have much traffic with cruises and tourist stuff shut down, Mikey Rat or Dismal World at a minimum, Space Center reduced hours and not traffic for chit!!

    We'll see how it goes..

    Y'all have a good evening..

    RJ

    Cooper St Maxx 255/80/17 I am right at 60k miles and no issues it is getting time to replace them though. Same size as the 255/85/16 just for a 17" wheel. I am using them on first gen Tundra aluminum wheels. They have been great in any condition I have put them in. I may try a diferent Cooper but just out of curiosity "0" complaints

    I like them. I'm running those on the Jeep and the next less aggressive Cooper on the Tacoma. Both are doing great for wear. I do need to have the tires on the Jeep rotated and balanced though. Thinking I'll have the same model that are on the Tacoma put on the wife's ZR-2.

    I hope so for your sake. It realy sucks when they just want to push the blame and depend on homeowners that have no clue and will hand out dollars to get it fixed.

    To bad a major snafu.
    Torque rod frame holes do not line up.
    Frame is powder coated.
    Taking to frame guy today however ..
    I do have a fix for it.
    Frame cannot be slotted or drilled as is, cause holes are 1 hole width
    off.
    If it was easy, anyone could do it..

    Good morning all. :hattip:


    I think my TV is on its way out. Everything on all channels had an orange hue when we were watching last night. It’s over 10 years old, so I guess I can’t complain too much.

    What’s the “smart” in Smart TV mean anyways? Is it just able to connect to the WiFi and act as a big tablet? :notsure:

    Seriously, I could go without a TV, but I don’t make all the decisions...


    Have a great day!

    Can't expand on the "Smart". Seems they all do the same functions. Depends more on the set top box for me.
    Wanted to remind you of Prime Days today and tomorrow. If you know what you want, may be able to save a chunk of change.

    Morning all

    Does it make toast?
    I would say weld and drill but the powder coating wouldn't look too good afterwards

    Its still an idiot box.

    However, every channel you can get on cable or dish you can get for half the price if you have good internet. I switched to Roku and piled on a bunch of channels including YouTube TV, HBO max, prime, netflix and a few others. It is still cheaper than direct.
    I can eliminate a few, but the budget still allows for them. In fact Roku has its own regular TV channels for free, so I might drop YouTube tv.TV.


    I think the smart might allow internet without the roku

    Don't really need all the good internet. We're on dsl/wifi and we're good 95% of the time. Sometimes it'll buffer, somedays worse than others. Cable and satellite are too stupid expensive.
