    Geek app. It's all crap from China. Typically it takes up to a month to receive your order. This item took 2wk. I ordered them on June 21st. They were "free" but I had to pay $6 S&H, they listed in a 3pk, and I ordered 2pks at $3 S&H on each. They charge shipping on each item quantity.

    Just a coincidence. My boss's kid and another kid, both 22 are always leaving my tools where they last worked. I find all my shit that they forgot or didn't put away when I follow them around checking the fixes they made on equipment or the crusher. Good thing our crusher has a tramp magnet. Ive found some of my sockets and box end wrenches when first firing it up after they where replacing skirt rubber or adjusting something in the feeder. I told my boss I was going to make a signout/sign-in sheet for my service truck. :annoyed:

    Sean’s actually very good about putting tools back in(not always in the right place, but they’ll be in the general area). He’s one of the only people who i don’t have a problem knowing where i hide my spare box key

    Is anyone planning to watch fireworks near ocean shores tomorrow? I'll be heading out there with the family tomorrow afternoon.

    @JimSnell I’m thinking about picking up a set of used Fox shocks. What’s all needed to do a rebuild?

    The seal kit, new shock oil, and nitrogen. And of course a spring compressor and or new coils if needed or want to bump up the spring rate.

    Fox and king use the same style fill port, Schrader, and icon uses a different style with a needle type.

    Yeah I forgot about those. I'm a poor peasant with the normal non RR and non ET version. Good thing it's as easy as taking a spacer out during the rebuild to unleash that extended travel I currently lack.

    Anyone have a go-to source for HID components besides TRS? I need to get rid of my shitty $10 Chinese LEDs I have installed in my d2s 4.0's and switch back to HID. I don't have the ballasts or bulbs anymore, or even the harness only a pair of H4-9006 adapters. I need a retrofit harness basically and bulbs. I've been looking at the 55w AC kits but prices are all over the place. The higher priced ones list having an EMI/RFI filter included vs the sub $50 kits don't. With the interference I'm currently getting from LEDs in my stereo and also CB, I definitely need a filter included. Do I just stick with a universal 55w AC ballast and run the amp-d2s connector or pony up for an actual d2s ballast? Also, bi xenon or just xenon? Since the cut off shield is what determines the output, it would seem to me that a xenon bulb is the right fit? :notsure:

    Any local shops that are good? Anyone purchased from HID kit pros in Issaquah? Not in a hurry and can wait till next week if I use an online vendor but I'm also the impatient type and would pay an extra ~$20 if I could get it today/tomorrow locally rather than check a tracking number till Monday.. one other reason to avoid shipping is my wife doesn't need to know either.... She has Mondays off... :anonymous::spending:

    I'll check them out. I didn't even think about the work delivery. I usually only think of that if I'm about to buy something that is oversized or heavy and ships freight needing a forklift to receive.

    That’s my go-to for keeping things under the radar. Too bad I can’t get ammo or uppers shipped to work. It would be entertaining to see what would happen, but probs not worth my job
