    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    That's the one I used. Fits nice and snug. I also have it on the bed rack near the tail gate so I don't leave a part of my scalp there when I lean in.

    Just got back, here are the mpg results. mpg not super important, but I've already driven close to 18k miles this year, so I'd like it to not completely suck down fuel. The 35x10.5s with proper toe got better mpg than the 265/70r17s with mad toe out lol. Ultragauge was calibrated with GPS location/distance prior to trip

    Blacksburg -> Mechanicsville and a HD trip (net downhill)
    Dash display (wildly inaccurate, but decent for relative comparison): 18.2 mpg
    ODO Mileage (uncalibrated for big tires): 201.2 miles @ 17.0 mpg
    UG Mileage (Calibrated for big tires): 227.8 miles @ 19.3 mpg

    Mechanicsville -> Blacksburg (net uphill)
    Dash display (wildly inaccurate, but decent for relative comparison): 16.9 mpg
    ODO Mileage (uncalibrated for big tires): 190.1 miles @ 15.3 mpg
    UG Mileage (Calibrated for big tires): 217.6 miles @ 17.6 mpg

    It is interesting how the larger tires on stock gears will amplify either end of the spectrum. In town got worse, but highway (as long as it could hold 5th in lockup, which it did for the most part) actually got surprisingly better. When it was stock, got around 16-17 either way.

    Look what a nieghbor pointed out hanging in our tree over the sidewalk. Near a school bus stop. It's as big as a basketball. Phone calls have been made.

    Not that I'm aware of. Put the warning out on the sub's FB page. I may try and hit it with Spectracide later tonight when they settle down.

    A school bus will be dropping off a dozen or so kids there in a few weeks. And it's potentially more than one sting as they sting multiple times. Don't want to take that chance.

    Edit: My sarcasm detector/meter is low on fluid and wisdom right now. Sorry I missed it.

    What is the edge guard you used to cover the gap between the body and bumper?

    So I finally got to use my Krazy Beaver shovel today. What a fun surprise moving trash cans into the trailer this morning. 41735.jpg
    This guy chose the wrong trash can to hangout under...made quick work of it, no messing around with the dog and toddler running around these parts!

    Last summer our dog accidentally stepped on a copperhead in the dark, so I'm in favor of snek execution. Her leg swole up like a balloon and it was no bueno. She powered through like an absolute badass, but a smaller dog might not have faired as well. Vet said Anti-venom was legitimately like $12,000 if it was actually needed, which is crazy expensive

    not swollen here, just doggo with her legs crossed all fancy

    Yeah a coworkers lab had a similar run in out in King William on their old farm, she made it through, but they said it wasn't pleasant and recall a similar $$$$ shock re: Vet costs for antivenom.

    All the dumb choices in one vehicle
    Eventful weekend for me this weekend:
    Saturday:
    - Replaced wheel spacers with thinner ones
    - Pulled front bumper off
    - Replaced fog lights with Amazon cheapy DOT/SAE fogs
    - Installed winch
    - Removed front lights
    - Convinced girlfriend to help me reinstall the front bumper
    - Pulled the entire gauge cluster apart to slap some electrical tape over the TPMS light

    Sunday:
    "Well it should fail because of those lights, but I put in there that you took all the lights off and passed you"

    "Also, how heavy are your wheels?"

    So I guess I need to buy some opaque covers for my lights, but at least I don't have to worry about inspection anymore

    Nice! FYI tpms light doesnt matter and isnt a factor for inspection.
