    Realistically, I will be 60-62. Can't collect the pension until I hit 60 and can't withdraw tax free from a Roth until 59-1/2. At 62, I hit the maximum possible percent for pension earnings.

    yeah I can’t withdraw Roth earnings or 401k stuff. I’m starting very early level research into it.

    realistically I wouldn’t straight up retire. I’d take some time off then do something part time or whatever. But that’s way in the future.

    Got it done. Finished passenger front while working under the camper awning. Lack of a garage sucks but I improvised lol. Thanks for the input peeps. Ended up talking to @mach1man001 as well. Sounds amazing. Vast improvement over stock. Did dynamat as well. Nothing crazy but definitely in the area of the speakers

    Heating fuel is 2.19 per gallon now down $.10 from four days ago. Usually I order extra and get a credit . Like 20 gallons more. Should give me a good sized credit

    I did before but about 8 years ago the guy loading my truck damaged the bed. Shit happens but the owner basically told me to piss off and "it's only a truck what do you think happens?" FUDB..sued him and won

    It makes such a difference. Wait another month or two until it warms up and you have a day off. Then rip those seats and carpet out and get at it. Even just the CDL tiles in there makes a big difference, and foam or mlv layers is just cake on top.

    Not sure about 2nd gens, but my 3rd gen had a decent amount of factory sound dampening, but still needed a lot. My 1st gen has none, its literally just the sheet metal and carpet. If the 2nd gen is somewhere in between, it will be well worth it. Even without music the added benefits on rider comfort and ability to have a normal volume convo is great.

    Give those focals all the help they can get, you won't regret it!! Although doing the doors is one of the biggest spots and you already got that.

    this help thermal insulation too? I’m planning to basically rip out the back seat and set up a dog crate behind the passenger seat in the 60%. Want a crate I can easily pull out and strap in the bed the next time she rolls in horse shit.



    anyone else watching this tiger thing???

    Seeing how long I can keep stock(ish) OVTuned
    Typically dyna-mat add sound control through mass, making the sheet metal more dense, and less likely to resonate.
    Only insulation it would provide, would be through thermal mass, but, it would work both ways.... i.e. not a good termal insulator. Need more air pockets to insulate.

    On the tiger thing, no... but, my sister went on a littler rant last night about it... apparently its stupid at best....

    There are some foams that help better with the insulation. Ensolite is a nice one, and I've used it. I used the cheaper noico peel and stick red stuff on my current truck and it has made a pretty big difference with how fast it heats up, and once it's hot I turn the heat off and don't need it really because it stays warm for quite a while. I have it everywhere but my roof though.

    This is what I most recently used:

    This is the ensolite:

    My wife is. I watched 2 or 3 episodes with her and couldn’t take it anymore. Too much drama for me and I couldn’t stand listening to either side anymore, they all have some serious loose screws.

    You wouldn't be disappointed. Trust me it's worth it!

    Yes just like @Bridge4 pointed out it's the foam that gives it a thermal resistance. I had asked the owner of Rammat about it because after installing all my skids (plus having no rug in my truck) my feet were burning up. He told me that I could do 2 or 3 layers of both tile and foam (on the floor) to really help insulate it. I did not do that though, I just did the one layer and it helped a lot! Both on sound and heat.

    BTW guys there are quite a few brands that make those 2 products all in one now a days. It's more expensive and wouldn't have worked for my back wall but it would have been nice everywhere else.
