Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in? IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) Quality and overall useability. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? No. Higher-end and better quality which goes back to useability. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all? No, that would not be worth my time and money.
idnative1948 replied to Colossus's topic in Garage & Home, Snow Plowing, Landscaping, & Lawn CareTotally agree with your statements. I still have one of the orginal 18v black batteries that just won't die. I have six of the 4ah becuase the wife bought herself the weedwhacker and blower. She is all excited because her new to her 4runner has 120v plug receps so she can charge batts do yardwork at our off the grid cabin.
idnative1948 replied to MidnightJohnny's topic in Garage & Home, Snow Plowing, Landscaping, & Lawn CareTell me about it! Mine resides outside because the guy that had this house built in the 50's had custom cabinets built in the front of the garage.
The age of 70 is coming to slap me in August. I will say that I have nicer vehicles now that the girls are grown and gone. But, mama's '96 Tahoe had been on life support the last couple of years so she just sold it and bought a 2016 4runner. She doesn't want to put miles on our (my) towing truck. But it is getting kind of long in the tooth at 95k. She did buy me a new bug deflector yesterday though. Back to truck payments again for a couple of years on her Toyo though.
idnative1948 replied to MidnightJohnny's topic in Garage & Home, Snow Plowing, Landscaping, & Lawn CareYou need some of my crap in there!
To those of you who tow a TT- Do you use a bug/hood deflector? I have always used them towing to keep the wind from buffeting the front awning. The one on my truck gave it's life today to save the front of my hood from a rock. I know there are pros/cons about them so wondering whether to replace it or not.
Spent a couple of hours de-funking the bottoms of both front fender wells. Just something I do every spring to rid it of the previous year's sand, mud, leaves from hunting and fishing. I use air and a vacuum at the same time. Tricky to do, but it works. Today I finally came up with this to make it a little easier to reach in there.
idnative1948 posted a topic in Major League Sports, Outdoor Recreation, Firearms, Hunting, OHRVTook brother over to our taxi on Saturday to pick up his euro moose skull. Wll say that it was lighter *hanging* his moose this time. Dammit it rotated!
True, but he just can't get the hang of working a bolt.
Those old things sure have a distinct sound. More of what I would call a *craack* than a boom. At least the rest of our group knows where *gunner* is when we hear him touch it off. He has been shooting that since he was 12 and has tried and tried to shoot a bolt gun, but just doesn't have the confidence. Very, very seldom does he need a follow-up shot as he knows his weapon's limitations. Always giving the newbie guys in camp a bad time by reminding them it is call hunting and not shooting.
Only thing he uses is plain 'ol 150gr Core Lokt.
His rifle is a 1921 vintage Savage .300. Shot placement is everything, but at 140yds and a heart shot he didn't even know he was dead.
