    Randyrule #2. Always have eye pro on. Because getting metal drilled out of your eye is horrendous.

    Good rule. Anything in eye sucks. I've got glasses now. I make sure they're impact resistant.

    @Usroadscholar 1.) I assumed you didn't like us anymore so thats why you were'nt coming around. 2.) Exotic Vehicle Wraps is the only place i would recommend. They did a custom design and print for my truck thats a better scale then what you can buy off the shelf (in my opinion).I chose the middle sample.

    Edit: come to think of it, that wrap would look excellent on a nautilus or CT5.

    Started having to wear readers lately to work on pretty much anything; the one good thing is they keep stuff out of my eyes. That's the only good thing, otherwise it sucks getting old!

    I feel your pain. Mine started as readers. Great argument between me and the doc. Then the distance vision started going. I'm not a big fan of aging. I mean, I could do away with it completely.

    Thanks for the information. Re: 1, I have been trying to understand quantum mechanics for some time and the Covid problem provided time. I have come to grips with understanding how “spooky behavior” works. Also I need to up date my knowledge of virology and the chemistry and physiology involved.

    Now, after my Uwharrie trip, I am studying the forces involved in off roading. Drawing vector diagrams, considering the application torque, control of traction, use of momentum, etc. if anyone wants to get together to discuss these concepts, I would welcome the opportunity. After a day running thru obstacles at Uwharrie we worked with drawing diagrams to understand the forces involved and why certain lines are better than others. I gained so much information that I need to sort it all out. I am having a hard time finding literature on 4x4 mechanical engineering specific to off roading.

    More...it would be great to have Big Creek Rocks obstacles and a mechanical engineering course so that you could have theory and a lab available to learn.

    Morning everyone!
    Spent yesterday in the woods and damn i did not expect it to drop into the 30's. It was a much colder then planned sit in the stand.
    Came out with nada, but did see 10. And 5of those were bucks all chasing the same for at a good clip right under me. 2 of the 5 were bordering on the largest buck I've seen around here.
    But no bucks allowed for a couple more weeks:annoyed:

    Went over to the in-laws yesterday and got the taco up on the lift for some To Do List items knocked out:

    Switched the Dobinsons Leaf Spring bolt next to gas tank (had minor rubbing visible from end of bolt)
    • Before:
    [​IMG]
    • After:
    [​IMG]

    Sway Bar Deleted[​IMG]

    Front Differential Drop Deleted (halfway then completed with skid plate on). So glad the front diff and support arms aren't sitting on the skid anymore!![​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    Removed and upgraded/installed single piece engine bay splash guards (DS and PS)[​IMG]

    Did the 1st interval molygraph grease on SPC UCAs @51,786mi (don't worry I pumped the new ball joints with this grease during install with Elka's).

    Cheapskated the OE fog harness exposed wire between loom and connector with electrical tape.

    Productive. Meanwhile, I'm switching out fluids and hammering on skids. And spark plugs. And propeller shafts. And TPMS sensoring. And washing undercarriages.

    Do you have the sensor codes?

    Yes. You have plugs due. I haven't done the driver's side yet, but they look fun.

    The last time I aired down it wouldn't reload until they reset them. If I were driving to work these days it would have already been done.
