    Forgot to mention yesterday was the start of 10 consecutive nights working before back to back 4 day weekends. I'm stoked for that.

    Damn man, that’s tough. What’s your industry? Things have been extremely slow in the northeast. I know the stocks looks great but it really feels like things are not going very good right now. Maybe things are just artificially inflated right now.

    My shift coordinator (friend) with 21 yrs is getting bumped to 2nd shift. The 2nd shift shift coordinator with only 3 yrs.....gets to keep his job because they are eliminating most all of 3rd shift and 1st and 2nd are not affected.

    ouch, that really blows. Im concerned for the future of the airline industry, the market is just so oversaturated, and nobody has made any major improvements in any areas that matter. its only a matter of time before we start seeing airlines close their doors again. Plus, the pilot shortage issue is going to become a problem at some point, and either the FAA is going to have to do something to make it easier to get commercially certified pilots, or theres going to be a massive reduction in air travel and air cargo capacity.

    Years ago GE had a big plant in Utica NY where I grew up and I remember that parking lot full three shifts a day and then just two shifts a day then no shifts a day. Sad.

    GE has been having a tough few months it seems. Stock is taking a dive. One report I saw said they might have to do away with dividends to pay debt.

    We just bought 6 GE engines here at work 2500hp & 3650hp hopefully that helps the cause.

    I'm only gonna lift it 2" - 2.5" maybe.

    I shouldn't need brake lines for that, should I?

    I'll say this from a 1st gen prospective.
    A) Yes, I absolutely needed extended length lines even though I barely wheeled.

    B) Stainless braided lines offer a ..I won't say huge performance adavantage. But you can definatly tell a difference in braided lines over rubber hoses.

    Better safe than sorry. I've had a complete brake failure (Ford product) not fun!

    Agree!

    Keep your head down. Good luck.
    I've never understood the whole reapply for the job you already have thing. Company making employees jump through hoops because they can. Seems kinda petty to me.

    What am I looking for then for a third gen (is there a length or type or brand I'm looking for)? Also, what's the best way to correct for "Taco lean"?

    It's my first lift and I'm trying to do it right.



    And how the HELL do I multiquote??? Can you quote a post with multiquotes? :anonymous:

    In. 5 of 5. TGIF.

    Basically the same setup I'm saving my pocket change for. I concur on the extended brake lines though. Spend a few bucks and get the braided ones. Brakes just feel more responsive with them IMO.

    The button in the lower right hand that says "Multi-Quote+" right next to "Quote"
    There is a vendor on here that sells braided brake lines. I can't remember the name. Found it after an exhaustive search! OCTaco sells steel braided brake lines.

    3rd gens have Taco lean?

    AFAIK "Taco lean" is the very slight listing to the driver's side, due to the weight of the gas tank. I think it's a 1/4" shim or something folks put in to correct it? I thought I saw nylon ones talked about somewhere here, they were pretty highly thought of if I remember correctly.

    Mine has a slight list to port. I thought Toyota corrected that particular problem.
