    Thank you for that. Him and his wife are looking to be able to take the travel trailer, and be able to park it, drive around, then hook up again and move on. The air bags might give a rough ride without the trailer.

    So $13 or so pay cut. Also take into account that cost of living is a little less, and houses cost a lot less. $600k might get you into a dump over there, but will buy a lot more here.

    I had some vibes after I lifted my taco that I figured was driveline. It hit about 40-45. Pull the carrier bearing off, stack a couple washers under each side, and put it back together. Washers are cheap and easily obtained.

    My local got a pretty good contract negotiation a few years ago, it would be closer to a $22 pay cut. I would love to live over that way but I’ll probably have to stay here until I’ve built up my retirement and more equity in my house :annoyed:

    Ive just resorted to ignoring the problems. Like the loud clunk that happened ~2 years ago now and provide funky noises when stopping and idling. I mean everything works so just dont touch it right? Only added ~15k miles since then

    It's the new normal!


    Like we say at work, "yeah it's making some noise, it's fine. When it stops making noise then it's probably time to give it some attention."

    Things definitely don't fix themselves.

    Are floor mats a mod?
    whay has the media not grabbed on to when Joe called 45 a clown when they asked the covid response question? I thought it was the highlight.

    I heard the next one is confirmed for a fisticuffs in a Chili’s parking lot.

    Marketshare makes a difference. ID is right to work, which holds back wages in E WA. There are a lot of people commuting from Post Falls and CDA to Spokane everyday for work to get higher wages. Minimum wage in WA is about $13 now. I think ID is still under $10.
    There are also a metric fuckton of ma and pop electrical outfits out here from all the individuals who are getting by on their own rather than be part of a shop like Valley, Veca, or Cochran. The big shop over here is Powercity.

    So CVJ will core if it’s repairable which it appears it would be but will confirm when I tear down later.

    anyone running RCV? I think it hardly be worth it with just running 33s and also don’t want to blow up any internal differential components.

    I think they're more concerned about the axle shaft and splines, not the outer joints. RCV isn't worth it unless you're going really hard.

    Awesome, my boots were always rubbing, but they never tore from that yet. As for RCV is what I thought too. My buddy that has a full buggy build on his ranger runs them but he’s climbing boulders and shit lol.

    You can stretch the boots out and re-clamp them so they don't rub.

    yeah I had wondered that. I think CVJ is still cheaper than OEM so probably going that route as I don’t trust the auto parts ones too much for the trail more so as a pinch part.

    I guess there’s Lotus development as well for axles but haven’t really heard muc about them
