    I heard 70 was a shit show all weekend pretty much. And I don't think anyone has seen an avalanche in that area, at least not in a very long time.

    Got a build thread or any pictures of your setup?

    I agree with the lifetime warranty route. I’ve got craftsman Matco and snap on. They all break at some point. Just make sure it’s not a huge hassle to do a replacement. I’d rather deal with quick replacement any day of the week.

    I bought a set of Gear Wrenches in probably 1999 (for $20 at Sears on Black Friday) and the ones that havent walked off and I still have in my arsenal are in great working condition. I dont know if they have been bought by China since then though.

    I just got these since my gearwrenches that you have to flip over to reverse are in storage. I am liking these ones with the switch a lot more.

    Aren't those gear wrenches in pic, or do I need to get my eyes checked again?

    I think you need to get your brain checked again. :crapstorm: I read it to mean his non-reversible GearWrenches are in storage so he is using reversible GearWrenches instead and is liking them.

    Without the switch is is possible to ratchet yourself into a place where you can't get the wrench out.

    What John said. I have two sets of gearwrenches. I like the set I pictured more. Advance auto/ car quest has them on sale for 40-50% off from time to time.

    Anybody have a shop paint a camper shell? Looking to pick one up, my truck is indigo ink, would probably be hard for me to do myself with this color and considering having a shop color match vs. just painting it black myself

    Anyone here have their Wilderness EMS Cert. or go to Colorado Mountain College?

    Looking at getting my WEMS and possibly going after that field as opposed to/in addition to machining

    I am looking at the NItros as those seem to be getting good reviews. Also, can get the REM on them from the vendor.

    I want the ARB in the rear just because I can only use the factory shit in low. I may or may not be installing a TacoBox in the coming months and if it were to be engaged, I would have to be in Lo-Lo in order to have a rear locker and that is no bueno. If I have the ARB then I could have more options for gears and lockers.

    Do it!
