    I was just wondering if he would want to come to the thing we are doing on the 10th. He seems like a cool guy.

    Never understood why the estate car never really took off over here. Europe has some amazing estate wagons that sadly we'll never see over here instead we get boring SUVS

    It's all about the image, to most people estate cars are the boring ones and the SUV makes them look "adventurous" and trendy.

    Granted there's also some questionable marketing decisions being made too (like Honda refusing to bring a Type R to US shores for years while people beat their dongs into a frenzy over the STI and EVO coming to the USDM) but it's often a self-fulfilling prophecy.
    If they don't perceive any demand for an estate, they don't bring over an estate, estates don't sell because there are none out there, and then "see? There's no market for it!":rolleyes:

    Its alright here in Farmington. Yes, the job market does suck unless you are in the oil fields, but that's all the way in the Permian and Delaware Basins which is in the SE corner of the state. $64B pouring into that area in the next 30-40yrs. It will make the Middle East look small from the amount oil they have found.

    So who was the genius that decided to put the air handlers in the attic? I have seen a couple of houses that needed surgery to replace the units, like they put them in before the roof was sheeted.

    I have the RXT for the raptor. They are supposedly softer than the stock raptor leafs but they SURE dont seem like it during the entire travel length.
    I did option#2 and dam was it tall. i put 450-500lbs on the rear and only dropped about 1.5". But it lifted the rear over 3".

    Currently i still have the same 450-500lbs with option#1 and love it where it is now. I wanted more weight capacity honestly and thats what i got with option#1. There are rumors that the Icons are made from Deaver. but they are coated where it doesnt rust like Deavers do.

    My air handler is in the laundry room in it's own little closet area. Easy to work on.

    enough of the AC talk


    why in the bloody hell does PHX builders place the electrical breaker box OUTSIDE?

    like dude, put it INSIDE on the same wall location (garage) would save me a bunch of hassle!

    if it were inside, my solar converters would be inside and not baking in the sun all day.

    This was one of the things that blew my mind about houses in the valley. It’s always been inside for me, but granted I used to live in a place where it would regularly rain and snow...

    Just read the 2020 T4R's are getting a hefty price bump across all trims including the pro which will now have MSRP just over 50k before the dealer adds any market adjustment pricing on top of that. Would imagine the 2020 Taco's will follow suit since getting many of the same upgrades.

    Prices of vehicles have been insane, and are clearly getting way more up there.

    It’s nuts.
