    YES. Nothing bothers me more than when stuff doesn't work out the way I planned it to.

    Next weekend, heading out to Smith/Wellington to put the Kings on, and then some shooting.

    OK I was drunk when I posted that. (fixed it)
    SS Growlers are Lead Dog & rest of description. (my 2nd stop of the day 3rd pint <10.2%> & 3rd Growler<10.2%>)
    Yes Lead Dog is expanding in Sparks. Only been there twice & met him the 1st time. Might have pissed him off twice though. When you go swap the Pug that stares at your junk while you pee for another dog. He told me they each represent an employee.
    Tour was at Pigeon Head where they do $10 Growler fills on Sundays (1st stop. 5 samples, 2 pints <5.5% & 7%> & 2 growlers <5.5 & 10.1)20190224_122814.jpg 20190224_123317.jpg 20190224_133047.jpg 20190224_135251.jpg 20190224_135254.jpg 20190224_134419.jpg

    Finally just finished wiring the Dual battery set up and the truck didn't burn to the ground. Im guessing if it doesn't burn my house down by morning, it should be good. LOL.

    Too many to list, and I've probably forgotten a bunch.
    Or until something rattles loose on the trail, shorts 300 amps to A Bad Place, and the truck burns down there. Been There, Seen That, Saw The Poor Bastard Who Got The T-Shirt. :-(

    On a related note, I bought one of the OGE battery hold downs (for a Northstar AGM, stock size, single battery). The hold down was too wide for the battery, so I ended up machining a spacer to take up the slack and then attached that with a couple of hex screws. Then the tie down holes were way too big (3/8 IIRC). I got some brass 3/8 x 1/4 bushings for those and then used some steel round bar to bend and thread custom tie downs. Made them a little long to eventually accommodate a different battery, so I topped them off with some acorn nuts (stainless). I'll take some finished install pics when I have a minute.

    OGE - 1.jpg OGE - 1 (1).jpg OGE - 1 (2).jpg

    Areas for improvement --

    1. Counter-bore the holes to the flanged bushings sit flush and loctite them in place.
    2. Countersink the holes for the little hex screws.
    3. Instead of holes in the OGE bracket, mill slots so the spacer has the ability to adapt to different battery sizes.
    (Could have done this on the mill, but I was getting the truck ready for the dirt, and time...always time....was short).
    4. Demo this on a drill press. I used my cheap little HF mill, which was accurate 'enough' to mill the spacer to dimensions and accurately drill the needed holes. I know a drill
    press can do this job, and more people have one of those than a mill of any sort.

    Pics? My stock battery is starting to slow down and I’m thinking about duals. But lately I’ve been leaning more towards a bigger single battery like a Northstar group 32 I think?

    I took the 31 approach but the only accessory I run is a winch because I'm not EAF. Igloo cooler FTW.

    @xxmagpulxx next time you do a new mod or need help with truck stuff, just remember while doing it that...

    :worthless:

    I ran a group 31 in the stock spot. Needed to extend the positive lead, modify the tray a little, and get longer J-hooks for the tie down.

    It was a massive battery. I just didn’t want to wire in duals.

    Yeah I have a winch but that’s about it. Not even a light bar or ditch light :(. I don’t think the duals would be worth it besides being able to self jump but I carry one of those little jump packs.

    Check the charge on the jump pack. The cold weather killed mine.

    I take it in and charge it every few months or so. It’s one of the lithium ones so it doesn’t seem to drain like the old heavy lead ones.

    Mines the small lithium deal too...but I clearly didn't charge it often enough.

    I was a youngster but that winter was huge in eastern part of the state too. My dad thought about moving us to Spring Creek that winter. We drove over the summit from Elko, the snow was higher than the pickup roof. He turned around at the intersection at the bottom of the summit, headed back to BM and never thought about it again. Hahaha

    Mine had no problem starting my Taco after sitting in sub freezing & sub zero temps for over 3 weeks (both Taco & jump pack).
    It was at 96% & I had used it to jump start someone else about 3 months before. All from 1st charge.
    Original battery from 2010 got drained because I didn't close the door all the way.

    Bump. I'm tossing the tailgate cap and plastic tailgate skin this weekend if nobody wants them. @4Wheelin4Banger, you'd mentioned that you might be interested in some if this stuff but I don't remember what it was you were after...let me know if you still want any of it.

    I also have an OEM receiver hitch I'd like to get out of the garage if anyone is interested in that.

    I drained mine trying to jump a car that was having some issues staying running because I didn't want to hook my truck up to the tweeker's car but I needed him to move it out of the alley so I could get through...may have asked more out of the pack than it can deliver.
