  1. Where in CFL are you? I'm in Oviedo. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  2. You should be fine, mileage-wise. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  3. I would just change the mirror caps to chrome. They don't get ruined by bug splatter like the painted ones do. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  4. Dry ice bomb?! [emoji23] What are ya, new?! That's one of the oldest tricks ever. You drop a piece of dry ice into a partially filled bottle of water. This causes the solid dry ice to sublimate. It pressurizes the plastic bottle until it can't hold it anymore and it makes a loud bang. It's harmless... Mostly. We did it in 8th grade science class to learn about the 3 phases of matter, solid/liquid/gas. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  5. Those aren't kids. Those are regular ole hobos. They're the disadvantaged ones, so if you retaliate, the police will be all too eager to punish you for it. So if you're gonna mess with them, they can't know it's you. You have to remain anonymous. They like tagging, get a paintball gun and tag their ass when they do it. Make dry ice bombs at odd hours of the night so they can't sleep. Wait until they leave their camp and ransack the piss out of it. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  6. The only time I've ever heard any whine coming from the engine bay of any truck I have ever had was when my belt tensioner pulley was on its way out on my '93. I've never heard an AC compressor running inside the cab. My old truck made a definitive click when the compressor engaged and disengaged. Can't even hear that in my new one. It just blows cold air. It still does what it is supposed to, what are you hoping to do with it? Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  7. With all the shenanigans going on, I've recently completed my 5th build. I put a 1-8 20" stainless steel HBAR with flutes on a Rock River A4 finished upper (I've built LOTS of uppers in my day from scratch, the forward assist pin is always a ****** and I didn't feel like doing that a 5th time), Hogue free float tube, low pro gas block, rifle length gas tube, PSA BCG, Surefire ProComp 556 brake (loved it on my 16" competition rifle) I put it on an Anderson 80% lower, my first foray into 80%s, and it came out beautifully. I initially put a standard GI trigger in, but being this was intended for a full length barrel, I sprung for a CMC 3.5 lb trigger pack, and WOW. I had negative opinions of 80% lowers for a long time, but this entirely changed my stance. It's my tightest, best-fitting build I've ever done. The VLTOR A5 stock and buffer kit is common on 20" builds with a collapsible stock, but I used a standard carbine spring and a H2 carbine buffer because the VLTOR is mostly out of stock or incredibly expensive. Historically, I prefer AimPoint optics, but I got a good deal on a Vortex Sparc, and while it isn't as precise on dot size as AP units are, I can't find anything wrong with it. The real eye opener was the charging handle. I usually just buy standard GI CHs, but shipping would have taken a long time, so I bought local and got a BCM Gunfighter. I'm familiar with them, but always felt they were overpriced and not worth it. Wrong. They are EXCELLENT. Offhand, single hand is all it takes to cycle the bolt. Just wanted to "brag". Apart from trucks, this is my biggest hobby. Anybody else love their BCM Gunfighter? For me it's a huge game changer. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  8. I am a human radiator. I always have it full cold. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  9. I put my radio bracket on the little compartment door where, traditionally, the ashtray would be on the lower part of the dash. It's 2 holes, if it bothered me enough later, I could just replace the door. My coax is just routed up between the front and rear door, between the weather seals. If you zip tie it to the grab handle, and route it on the floor under the mats, it's not in the way and you don't really know it's there. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  10. The entire cab cools down pretty fast if you crank the fan to maximum speed, open all the front vents and point them straight, turn on recirculation, and set your temp knob(s) to LO. The problem occurs when you have someone in a front seat who closes their vent or angles it towards the window. Blast that ******, it's gotta make it to the rear! My rule is no messing with the vents, the temperature, or the fan. If you're thin blooded, bring a jacket. I'll take the fan speed down after I can see frost building on the rear glass.

  11. You have 23,000 miles. I'm inclined to believe that's still some breaking in of the engine. They are not the fragile little flowers they are made out to be on here. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  12. Window motor is probably dead. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  13. If you look in the owner's manual, they actually recommend removing it for off road driving. It's just a couple screws. Pop it off if you want to. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  14. Could you imagine if this post was about collapsed lifters and Amsoil as the culprit? [emoji23] Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
  15. Definitely in-channel, they look WAY cleaner in my opinion. I've had my AVS on my 17 CC for over a year. They're great, holding up fine. Sent from my SM-J810F using Tapatalk
