    Thats the problem with a 1/2" impact that goes to 800ftlbs. You blow spec away by the time you touch the trigger. You can use a 3/8" impact that doesnt have nearly the max torque that will get you close more safely.

    If you have bolts that need that much torque to break loose, then, um, well, you see, uh, so, good luck.

    So, reading between your lines, it sounds like a 1/2" that does 500ft-lb is more than enough... and if it's not enough, then I have other issues (e.g. reach for the BFing breaker bar, or the oxyacetylene torch etc)?

    Or are you saying 500ft-lb is still too much... and I should "be happy" with (I dunno) 250ft-lb or 180ft-lb?

    My ryobi is great @300ftlb

    I knew a guy that has the high end desalt. Thec1200 breakaway is nice though.

    Bear with me JohnT...

    Should I be happy with option 1, or go for door #2?
    1. Bosch IDH182B 1/2" impact driver (137.5 ft-lbs)
    2. Bosch 18-Volt High Torque Impact Wrench Kit with Friction Ring IWHT180-01 (500 ft-lbs)
    If tightening sheeitt... I totally get using a tool that only goes up to 140ft-lbs or so. But if trying to get rusted suspension bolts off... why not hit it with the BFH to start with (i.e. the 500ft-lb impact driver)?

    Or am I over-thinking this, and my inexperience is getting in the way... several days of PB Blastering and then use a big breaker bar?

    (Thanks for putting up with this noob's questions...)

    Several days of fill-in-the-blank solvent and a breaker should do the trick on anything you need to break loose. Do I own a 1/2" impact? Yes. Is it always with me on the trails? Yes. Do I use it? Rarely. But, they are great tools to have available.

    If you use discretion and understand the trouble it can get you in and use its power wisely, by all means, go get one and enjoy it. But be careful. Use it for loosening and loosening only. Make sure to get one with selectable power. That will keep you in the safe house most of the time.

    Here’s a insurance question for you Colorado peeps. Original autobody shop estimated $4150 for repairs which I received a check from my insurance company. Took it to another autobody shop to get repaired but only the sheet metal work. Not the front bumper, wheels and running boards which were all in the original estimate. Ended up costing me $2800. The estimate that the shop is sending to insurance is for $4900. Insurance company will be sending them a check for the extra $750 which is for work they never did, so basically free money for doing nothing. Do I A) do nothing and let the shop keep the money for the repairs they didn’t do, B) call my insurance company and tell them what is going on or C) ????

    C) drink a cold beer and wait on the people that know what they’re talking about to chime in.

    Check this out boys. Front flares from the tacoma fit on the 80 series. Covers all but 1 hole from the original fenders.
    Hope i get as lucky with the rears.

    Did you rattle can it yourself? Remove any trim, or just carefully masked everything off by eye?

    Oh, but it is. Its not fru fru hippie dippie beer, but I assure you, it is beer. You dont have to pay $9 for a pint to a guy with a man bun for it to be beer.

    How long a breaker bar do you like? 18" long enough? Or 24"? I see some thutties out there, but think they might begin to flex a bit.

    Yes i rattle canned it myself.color is rustoleum satin olive. i sanded it all down and then masked off the lights and windows. Very little regard for perfection on this rig. Im starting to love it.
    Its a low buck truck. Anything i buy for it will be from selling old stuff i dont use anymore, mostly from my taco.
