    I’ve had 2 lg plasmas (still have one and @Tigerian has the other) and now a lg projector. All of it is still going strong.

    My last one was LG lasted like 13 or 14yrs, this one was a little more than I wanted but given the quality & longevity of the last one I couldn't pass on this one.


    And I gave in and bought a sound bar which I've thought about for years, got a Vizio v-series 2.0 sound bar on sale for $80 & I'm impressed with this little bar, good bass & sound quality for not having a external bass box.

    Even if you don’t switch to the hard on stuff, regular Woolwax is thicc compared to FF and holds up longer. I didn’t even spray mine this year, it has like 3 years of build up still on there.

    Not sure-I have mixed feelings about it. It does get hard, just not as fast as they say it does. It is tough, just not tough enough for the open direct tire spray applications I have. Some of it is my own poor application, so the failure is on me-I did not put it on thick enough. It has to be globbed on there. Where it is it sticks good and seems to be okay. This was such a whirlwind build and also driver, so it is incomplete and really needs to come off and be attacked with a couple of gallons of the stuff. I wouldn't use it underneath... I it will make any repair a bitch and getting bolts off a chore. Thats your warning. My opinion from 1 to 10 is a solid 6.

    HA! Forgot about that stubborn mule of a Chevrolet! truly out of sight out of mind! Although if winter holds like this there is a parade in Washburn in a couple weeks that needs an old fire truck...

    There's a black rope looking thing that should be hanging from the back of the t.v., with 2 maybe 3 metal prongs.
    Those metal prongs get inserted into that box on the wall.

    Okay-I have been cleared with the wife. Going (unless it snow like three feet or something stupid...) Probably going to camp Saturday night-assuming they camp on the winter run.

    I also gave the wife a heads up. I'm not real sure what to expect other than showing up and see what the day brings..
    Was only planning on the day but I'm no stranger to sleeping in my cab if I had to.
    If you guys hit trails to difficult for me I can find ones that aren't.
    Looks like there's plenty of screwing around to be done in the pasture.

    Doesn't look like they support camping for the winter fling. If I am to tired I will find a home in the forest on the way back...

    So in the spirit of bad financial advice, I offer up for your consideration an unused mig welder I bought a few years ago with grand intentions that remain unfulfilled.
    With moving the business, I realized I'll probably never get around to using it. I also bought a helmet and a couple other tools that will be included. Everything is new and unused and in perfect condition.
    I'm tossing it out here first in case any of you are interested, before I list it on marketplace.

    Dang wish you had this up last year before I bought one. Good beginner 220 welder, you should have no trouble selling it. GLWS!

    Well... if you aren't driving your truck, you should be quite well off by now!

    Welders are timeless, like I said before you shouldn't have trouble moving that one. That particular model is usually about the best bang for your buck and lots of people will be interested. You'll be fending off Facebook Marketplace lowballers left and right! :rofl:

    Relentless Fab hybrid bumper, 2.5” Dobinsons IMS lift, RCI skids and sliders, block heater. Rola rack. Painted FJ Steelies. Was trying to keep it stock, now slowly building for the Wisconsin trails.
    With the expected warm weather this weekend I figure it's a good time to mount my winch. For those with the Harbor Fraught badlands winch, where did you relocate the solenoid box to?
    I'm wondering if I need to fab up a bracket for mounting.
