    Idk it looks high enough to give you a penalty for high sticking.

    I get kinds of tires from lawnmowers to mud tires. Even rims when they are shipped individually that is.

    A desperately needed wash and changed the diffs, t case, and trans fluids. Almost shat myself when the hex key in the drain plug on the front diff started to slip a little.

    Ran out of oil when doing the front diff so I hope full synthetic Fram and Valvoline 75w-90 mixes well. Only used about 1/4 quart of the Fram.

    Trans and T case got the good Redline stuff. Found it weird my drain plug on the trans had no magnet or crush washer. Just took the crush washer from the fill plug and I’ll replace it sometime. Letting the truck sit overnight to watch for drips, but I torqued everything to spec so I should be good. Gotta admit, never really used a torque wrench before and everything felt kinda lightly tightened on there.

    It's the 1000. It's been on for 2 days (I did turn it off overnight last night) and down to about 65%. I'm going to leave it on overnight (I didn't realize you're supposed to discharge them every few months) so I'll run it down to empty and plug it in. My sdhq terminals will be here Thursday, and then the AGM can go it, I have a 100w solar panel to install, might just get a second one, and run the fridge off the AGM and use the solar to keep it topped off.

    The Jackery is fine for me, I got it from a friend that liked the Goal Zero stuff better because you could stack them on each other, stupid handle is in the way on the Jackery, and the new Goal Zeros have a ton of cool features. Is it worth $1000? Idk. You could buy 2 AGM for that and have more capacity, but I'm using this for other stuff too and didn't want to do an inverter.

    I appreciate the response. Looking to get one myself and can’t decide which one is best.

    Depends on how much you want to spend and what it's for. The Goal Zero 1500x has remote monitoring with power output, etc, so if you're using it to backup your house or other things, you'll be able to monitor it from anywhere. Plus it has a 2000w inverter which will power most hand tools even. If you're like me and just need decent wattage and a significant amount of it, the Jackery is great. It also has 1 more AC outlet than the GZ

    Just had the driveshaft, u-joints, and carrier bearing replaced under warranty at the dealership. She rolls nice and smooth again!
