    Porch project was started yesterday. When they got the decking up they found that the framing was shit.
    So....add on to the tab. :spending:
    I think they will be putting the decking and rails today.
    Techno posts going in on Saturday.
    Should be buttoned up middle of next week. :fingerscrossed:

    I would be happy with a real 6 months of snow and straight to summer months. I really dislike the fall, and spring.

    Hi Folks-

    Any guidance about auxiliary lighting in MA? Legality? Advisability? What I saw online referred to a federal guideline that, well, didn't make much sense to me. I hear that in many states it is not legal to have extra lights on the roof. As it is not "mission critical" for our truck I don't need to push limits, but I could see it might be very useful and would be a big hit with my motor head of a teenager. TIA!

    I have seen many vehicles with extra light on the roof and on the sides for that matter.
    Not sure what is in the books for legality. @Blais03 do you happen to know?

    I am running ditch lights, a 30 inch dual bar in my grill, and a 38" on top of my roof. No issues as long as I don't have them on while I am On-Road.....offroad I have them on all the time. Never had one issue. Even getting the truck inspection.

    I believe any aftermarket light technically has to be covered when on the road. They cannot be used on the road. I have been stopped but never ticketed for them being on. I was told at inspection they need covers but they didn’t fail me for them. With all that being said I don’t use them much on the roads and I don’t have any issues with them legally and It’s never been mentioned to me again after that one time at inspection.

    20210323_142649.jpg I have 7" spots behind my grill, a 30" light bar in the lower grill, and amber KC fogs. I use the spots and bar on the roads as they are hooked to my high beams, but only on empty roads where you'd use high beams. I have always been told that technically the lights need to be covered when on the roads, but have never had a inspection person say anything to me.

    I was hassled by the state police once about the amber fogs, he claimed they were changing colors. I told them they are DOT approved and always amber (they really are), then realized he was just fishing for drunk drivers as he let me go no issue.

    3 technoposts in.
    Took him about an hour.
    He said, "some hard ground out here."
    Last hole gave him a little issue too. Hit a good sized rock.

    Coming along.

    Many thanks for your info, folks! I have ordered a rack to which I can add a light bar later just in case we can’t resist!

    I bought myself something. The differential lock on it works great! It was definitely cared for mechanically, just some little scrapes and dings here and there.

    So, @Boston10Taco my old Craftsman is up for grabs if you want a project. The engine, transmission, and battery are good, but cosmetically it isn't perfect, it has a deck vibration that I think is caused by a bad spindle or two and the rear tires lose most of their air if they sit for more than a week . The only thing preventing me from giving it away is the Vanguard engine on it - I'd let it go for cheap, though.
