    Absolutely. The birth was an adventure (baby got stuck, needed oxygen) and then we got home and all was well until my wife started having breathing issues. She went to her PCP and saw the LPN which dismissed it as an upper respitoary infection. The next day she was worse, called back and a different nurse said get to the ER ASAP. Next thing she's hooked up to oxygen. She's fine now, but figuring out how to balance the 2 year old and the new baby and get everyone out in time in the AM is going to be an adventure.

    Thanks! Yeah, I've had an Alpine PWE-S8 for a few years which is okay for bass fill. I just did the ever popular Kicker speakers in the front doors and I find myself thinking I could use some more highs and wishing I had more low. I figure I'll eventually do Kickers in the back doors and then the Subaru / Kicker PnP tweeters. I likely won't do a different sub, although I really, really want to. My STi had two amps, components and subs by the time I was done. My Vette came with a full audio system done, custom enclosure, etc. My buddy had a CarPlay HU left over I just swapped in and that still thumps like I'm 18, so it's hard not to want it in the truck.

    I just really don't want to pull door wiring again. I did that with the STi, overgauged everything, etc. It was fantastic, but I think in the end all it did was damage my hearing.

    I have Monday "off" because it's my regular day off but I still get paid for it anyways. I put off in quotation marks because when I leave on Sunday to drive back I'm still in the truck until whatever time I arrive Monday morning.
    Glad she is OK.
    I'm going to go this route next time because to me all the newest phones get is like one new little gadgetry thing and a slightly better camera.

    Sounds like you have your hands full enough with the kids, never mind the cars lol.

    I got a 10" android HU for my STi, and for some reason the front speakers aren't working... It's very frustrating, and I haven't had time to screw with it.

    The F-250 needs some bass. The seller claimed it had an upgraded stereo. My drive home proved that his claims were false. It is VERY stock

    Are you using the factory speaker wiring or pulling new wires? The only time I'd lose audio is when my wife accidentally pulled out my RCAs on my old AVIC since I pulled new wires from the amp to the speakers. I would assume you've either got an incorrect config in the HU itself or have a bad wire.

    Little late here, but I wouldn't sweat it even if the maker was removed. Any surveyor that comes to the area will be able to calculate the original point, regardless if it is there or not.

    If you see a fence being constructed, then I would be a little leery and get that property line surveyed - or better yet, ask the neighbor who he hired as a surveyor to build the fence. Otherwise it would probably be a waste of money to have a monument reset. As a side note, in Massachusetts it is illegal to remove property markers. Can come with a fine of up to $10K

    Reminds me of what our neighbors did by one of our rental properties. They did a land survey and it showed that the outer edge of our wall was the property line and it was staked out. They then removed the stakes and made a retaining wall butting up right against our wall and continued further down. We got another surveyor to come down and check it out, and they built their retaining wall/driveway/fence a good 2 feet into our property, so they put a property marker on their asphalt.

    I cant even begin to count the number of times I have been hired to resolve a discrepancy where someone thought a wall or a fence was the property line and did something stupid like build a shed pulling a steel tape from the line. I get that people do not want to spend money when they aren't required to, but when a mess up happens my fee is pennies in the bucket compared to the cost to fix their mistake.

    Factory wiring was used. I might try to solder the connection, however I had pulled the unit out, disconnected and reconnected, and the front speakers worked. I did a key cycle, and they didn't work again.. I'll have to do some digging. I just have too much crap going on to worry about it haha.

    It should be updated. I have it set to connect to the wifi at home and perform updates automatically. The difference with this unit is it is essentially an android tablet with audio outputs. So its a little different than a run-o-the mill android HU

    Battery corrosion is crazy, charging system alert and truck wouldn't start without a jump. Will have to call service department tomorrow, also have a driverside visor that fell out somehow.

    Installed some new fancy mirrors with better angles and a flashing signal. The "Sumo" ones that just came out. Should be real nice for towing views, or when I have my bed full with crap and can't see out the back. Maybe I won't crash anymore backing up too :fingerscrossed::rofl:

    Excellent advice. Thanks. :thumbsup: Any idea on removal in NH. My neighbor (s) are excellent and I’m wondering if it is an overreaction on my end.:notsure:.

    Forest Rd 71. Let me know if you need some spots. It's a good location if you want to push on to the Dorset caves after

    Very interesting. This Saturday, when I mow my lawn I will get a very good look. There is a spot that looks like the square monument was removed. I have mowed over that spot for years and all of a sudden I noticed that it’s gone. I will also call the assessors office and ask them some questions .
