    I recall seeing a youtube series or something of two guys in vests and carrying a ladder to get into sports events for free.

    Just gotta have that "I'm supposed to be here" attitude.

    Absolutely. Regearing to the proper ratio is more important than most people realize. Especially for automatic trucks, shift points are changed when going to larger tires and not changing gears, which usually causes increased heat in the transmission. I’m interested to see how this plays out with the 4g Tacomas and their new 8 speed transmissions. They come with 3.58:1 differential gearing. When going to a 37” tire 4.30:1 gears are the closest to “factory” that a standard gear ratio can get. Meaning at 2500rpm in any given gear you’re going almost the same speed as you would be with factory tires and gears. Which is a big change from previous generations being that 4.30:1 was, and is still in 4g trucks, a factory ratio for manual trucks

    About to interview my 4th accountant for this year. This time I'm going with someone who keeps 9-5 hours and not doing this on the side while chasing their kids around. I get it, kids come first, but do what I'm paying you to do, and do it on time.
    In my next life, I will be the accountant. Those fuckers make bank.

    Definitely wasn't the arresting part lol, we hardly ever caught anyone. Even if we did, they hardly ever got prosecuted or would take such major plee deals they were back on the streets doing in again within days. It was a 50/50 mix on them going to shops or not. We saw a lot of them being traded on the streets for drugs, then they could end up anywhere from Ebay to ChopShops.

    We were seeing they go for $20-40. There was a theft series, same 2 people, hit like 40 houses in Highlands Ranch then 20-30 in my jurisdiction in just 1 night. Not the brightest folks though because they ended up on like 20 different ring doorbells because literally everyone in Highlands Ranch has one.
