    None yet......trying to figure out where to start ;)
    So I went to pick up my girlfriend from class last night.
    Showed up early... left my radio and heater on (it was cold), and um....
    ..."kinda" didn't turn the truck on... just let it run on battery power.
    Fell asleep.... and hour later... battery's dead. Out of the 20-something people who walked out of the building... NO ONE had jumper cables :(
    Including me, because they are in my bag....in my apartment.

    Finally found a friend who had cables, started right up :D So yea... I iz jakazz.

    Note: I didn't know that some Chevy cars have their battery in the trunk? :confused: who'da thunkit? :D

    most bmw's have the battery in the trunk for weight distribution. people were always confused when they'd ask for a jump and i'd come backing up to their hood

    Yeah. How does your heater work without the engine running? It will only blow hot air for like 5 minutes with the engine off if the engine is warm.

    I've been thinking about moving my truck's battery to the right side of the tool box. It would move weight to the passenger side for the Taco lean and to the back wheels because all pick ups are front heavy.
