    Trying to keep up with you and mods is hard @EatSleepTacos
    But I scored a pretty sweet deal today thanks @FadedComa for the tag the other day. I'll just leave these here. These are what the seller sent me.

    Trying to get everything done for work so I don't have to worry when I get busy. One time fee since I moved from out of state of like 90 bucks, inspection was 25 for safety and emissions. Luckily here, cracked windshield doesn't fail inspection so I didn't have to replace. But we do have yearly safety inspections

    I won't be getting this until the weekend of the 11th and I'll still have it on before him. I think Bri got tired of my open threats to steal his he kept his nose to the ground to find me one.

    Well I can’t wait to see that bad boy mounted. Do you have a winch in mind?

    Since I had to recharge my ham radio, figured I might as well paint my mount. It’s been bare steel for like 7 months now. Just don’t tell my wife I like to paint indoors.

    Yeah I have a hook up for smittybuilt where I can get one brand new for half price so I am going to go that route once I recoup the funds.

    I like mine. I have the lowest level, steel line, corded remote $300 one and it works well. Pulled my heavy ass up a steep hill and barely broke a sweat. Which one are you thinking of?

    I do. I have an NMO antenna in my roof but I leave it disconnected. To be honest I was a little too gung ho and drilled the giant hole in my roof before realizing I really don’t need an external antenna. The handheld works great. Eventually I’ll get a hardwired ham to put the extensral antenna to use.
    i have both my my CB is shit. I constantly get “robot randy” where I’ll try to talk but I’ll sound like a robot fucking a fax machine. So Tyler and I have our ham licenses and I’m trying to convince others to get it too. It’s much clearer.

    What I did when respooling my line the other day was put up a stopwatch on my phone. That way I could easily do 30 on and 30 off. 30 seconds goes by real quick and I’ve definitely been over working my winch when using it.

    Ham wasn’t too hard as long as you study for maybe an hour a night for a week. There are even apps for it. All the questions are publicly accessible, but there’s a large pool of 400 or so.

    And yeah it’s easy to take your time while respooling. I just meant that’s the first I’ve ever truly followed that rule to a T and I was surprised how fast 30 seconds goes by while winching, and how slow it seems while waiting for it to cool. Definitely doing the stopwatch thing from now on on the trail.

    Man I’m from CA!! Never been to tejas
