    Most of them are outside. Business owners can practice safe business practices. Unlike the democratic backed violent protests and destruction we see nightly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The same could be said for everything we do in life. I don’t need to make a list it’s just about everything. It’s up to the individual to make a person choice. This is the hot button right now. Don’t worry after the election it will go away. Those riders are very brave. If you don’t want to be around that it’s your choice. They made theirs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Anti lock brakes, check. Bind spot monitoring, check. Maybe back up camera. Every thing else intrusive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’ve never seen exact full. Usually 1/2 of qt was the rule. Unless I did it myself. Never seen a problem because of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So you have all these people riding motorcycles together. You know what happens if one falls. I don’t think there’re too worried about getting a bug that the average death if they get it is 75. I can picture a brave reporter asking one about that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve owned a few business. They were my life, everything was in them. If someone was willing to come to it I’d be there. This damn bug wouldn’t stand in my way. I worked on old pipelines one false move it’s over. This bug id be laughing. I’m older I’d stay away now. Ten years ago and back, no problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s pretty simple. There’re adults. If people don’t want to be involved don’t. Stay away from the area. It’s called freedom. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    Almost like a demonstration. Except they shop in the stores. And contribute to the economy. So if they pass the bug at least they add to the economy instead of destroying it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. All for what maybe 2 miles per gallon. I put a tune in my 14 turned it off. No fuel mileage change. I guess if you chug around at 55 maybe. Who does that, old dude’s maybe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. 12 years ago I bought a 383 92 Chevy truck with a whipple SC. It ran like a champ. I used a qt every 500 miles, no matter how I ran it. 5 lbs of boost or 12. In February I sold it to a young family member. It still uses oil, still runs like a champ. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So GM wants to change their ads from the longest lasting to don’t let your warranty laps? The easiest it seems to me would be, one lose the thermostat or shorten the fluid changes. I can’t believe there’re that stupid. Well they did come up with cylinder deactivation, twice. Never mind. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I recently had my teeth cleaned. There’s an occupation that could be stressful in these current times. I’d stated I’m very conservative, and worry about some overreacting in certain areas. Mask wearing is a no brainer for me. It’s provides comfort to the other guy. It lowers their stress. It reminds the user of other habitats to being healthy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I like to keep things simple. Back in the day we use to put on a cooler thermostat. If pulling a external transmission cooler. Now for fuel mileage and emissions hotter is better. Doesn’t the transmission fluid still go through the radiator and air-water cooling? Seems the water temperature would have to drop. Then emissions and fuel mileage suffers. With our pulling trucks we simply changed to synthetic (Amsoil) problem solved. This was starting with C-6 transmission up to the present day. The manufacturers have switch to synthetic. The transmission doesn’t have the problem with the heat, it’s the fluid. We found that with many different transmission over decades. With synthetic we never had a transmission failure again. Our combined loads were over 20Klbs, with our one tons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. We had two 05 Ram diesels have the over fuel problem. One on the freeway at night. It went boom. The second about the same time in town it lived. Bad injectors. Big problem for awhile. Both trucks had banks equipment. We never bothered with the dealer. Fixed them in house. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    People. Local and Texas state news reports daily there’s additional testing sites. More test more results, daaa really? The dashboards show trending down, I check twice a day. The US dashboard shows the same. Yes there’re upticks. Probably due to some mailing and other backlogs. Hospitals stays are down as well as deaths. The lack of attaboys keep up the good work is amazing. Maybe the goal is, there’s no use in trying. We’re all gonna die. Amazing. I see compliance daily locally and on trips. Maybe panic is the goal, baffling really. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    Seems to me if New York or any where for that matter had hand sanitizer available and mask requirements this would be pretty much mute. Probably New York should think about keeping their police force around to hand out tickets for non mask compliance. Since they don’t need them for anything else. According to their mayor. For a city that’s doing everything right, according to some. That should be a no brainer. I’ve been around to a few of my usual stumping grounds of late. With the requirements post covid it’ll be pretty hard to get the bug where I’ve been . With the few places open in New York it should be a piece of cake. But of course complaining and pointing fingers is easier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    It’s seems strange that one of the most lock down states can’t seem to get their act together. Just by the shear numbers of people fleeing the state their numbers should be declining. The fact is the numbers are declining. But is true if there’s one positive case the positive cases rise. Some people just can’t handle good news. Just have to be negative downers. The truth is from now and for evermore there will be a rise in positive cases, that’s a fact. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Every new truck I bought I tuned. The 2014 truck got tuned. I’m glad I’m retired and don’t need to buy new anymore. The junk that’s on these new trucks would drive me crazy. If I ever have to replace my current one do to a wreck. I would be a clean old one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    All my southern covid dashboards are trending down. Just in time for my August trip East. Some rapidly so. Myrtle beach had a very good June. Not so since. The scuttlebutt from people I talk to in the area is. The northerners brought it down. Infected the area. Then blame Myrtle beach for sending it back north. Typical. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I’m about as conservative as they come. I live in the most conservative country in Texas. Every where I go 99.9 percent of the people and every place is following the guidelines. Hand sanitizer everywhere and six foot floor coverings. It certainly feels like an infringement. I willing to do it temporarily. Saying that I think everything should be open and follow the guidelines. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I know several people that drive the 5.3 equipped 1/2 tons the have high mileage from the 2001 model up to the cylinder deactivation 5.3. I’m one of them. There’re very reliable and durable. That’s what I’d pick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    The last one that came through was with the prior administration. Older people had herd immunity, it wasn’t new. It was scary at first. No lock downs not much was done. The young got herd immunity quickly it faded. The difference was who was president and who backed him. The news media. This is worse no doubt. But the hysteria is whipped up for obvious reasons.

    Coronavirus

    Someone said hydroxychloroquine isn’t effective. From all the reading and watching I’ve seen. It’s seems to be as effective as a flu shot, 30-50 percent according to the studies I’ve seen. Some posted here. The trick is when you take it and what combination. People get a flu shot every year. So for the people with an agenda, don’t take it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. With just about everything new on these trucks geared toward fuel mileage. The temperature being controlled by a thermostat in the transmission would be a bad thing according to some. But a costly maintenance and repair cylinder deactivation system is good. Interesting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    I believe mask and social distancing is helpful. I’ve been noticing these dashboards have been going up and down for awhile. Even in states with the most strident lock downs. So we’re probably on the right path sort of a complete cure. If that’s even probable. School opening will be interesting. So will flu season. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
