    I miss you guys

    My Wingnut was gone, so I just picked something random from my old Photobucket account LOL I currently have 5 vehicles in my driveway. 94 Jeep Wrangler, 2006 GTO, 2012 Rogue (wife's), 2013 Tundra, and 2015 Tacoma (flipping it for family). Tundra is my DD. Life's too short to keep buying the same thing over and over, so I went with something else...At the time, it had the biggest back seat on the market (other than the megacab, but I don't need 3/4 ton) and I had two kids in rear facing seats, so that's what I went with. I'll probably buy a ZR2 Colorado Diesel in the next couple of years, because the kids are now in boosters and I LOVE the size of this Taco I've been driving around.

    Life gets busy, time consuming things get shed due to priorities...Get used to not coming here... Life!
  4. I think it means you've won! Won a free hangover!
  5. I am sadly, no longer a member of this club.
  6. Probably less rare than a Syclone. If you've got one of those...POST EM UP FOO.
  7. Some of us didn't buy a 5.3 BECAUSE of AFM. Oil consumption is a very well known issue with these engines. My buddy's Chevrolet Dealership has been advised to keep quiet on the subject - "unofficially" of course. They are busy replacing lifters. Good call. In the 3 months (and around 4k miles) I've had the Avalanche, I've had to add two quarts. The sad thing is... the 5.3 is an absolutely FANTASTIC engine. It's the AFM components that are failing. Yup...Which is why I'm not too worried about it. I'll get it fixed (under warranty), pop a Mentos, and call it a day. You mean to tell me that GM issues TSB's to work on this, yet GM knows nothing about it. The "Marketing Team" is who wrote that. You'll sooner get a straight answer out of a politician than you will out of any marketing team.

  9. Jax is 1/10th the size of the largest city land-wise, and is #5 in regards to largest US cities in area. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Unite..._cities_by_area Largest in the lower 48 is your claim to fame /OKC is #8

    lol...You know if you shop around, you can mix up a 55 gallon drum of that stuff for around $20.
  11. Chimes never bothered me THAT much. But the one in my wife's Camry does. The seatbelt chime is DAMN loud. And it never shuts off. Matter of fact, after about 20 seconds it goes from bing bing bing bing to BINGBINGBINGBINGBING. And that's from pulling her car around back to the shop...30 seconds and I'm ready to stick a screwdriver into my ear.
  12. Doesn't actually shut them off on an '02. Mashing it 4 times just gives you full manual control. Which would be AWESOME...If it didn't reset back to default every time you start the truck
  13. Same here. I can't tell if I don't look at the dash. And I no longer leave that display up, as when it's on, I can't stop staring at it.
  14. Mine doesn't have a light either, it's the display I was talking about being so bright.
  15. I don't care much for my backup camera at night. Great picture, but it's WAY too bright. I can't see out of the mirrors in the truck due to how bright it is. Actually...The whole navigation radio sucks. I've wanted to punch a hole in that sucker every time I've used it. I think a team of drunk monkeys programmed the user interface.
  16. The juice from my conquered minion's eyeballs. *squick-squick*
  17. Actually, it does. Have you seen some clothing made in China? How one sleave is shorter than the other, and things are sawn together crooked? I have seen some horrible workmanship on leather seats made for GM vehicles in Mexico. It is not just the spec, but workmanship skill. And they often hire unskilled labor to do jobs where some skill is definitely required. You know...If you're going to start slamming somebody for shoddy work, you might want to work on your spelling, as it reduces the impact of your point.
  18. Yeah...Non-running...3 grand if you find the right buyer. But probably quite a bit less.
  19. Very nice trucks in here guys! Charlie...You've got the detail gene...I'm surprised you need to be told about this product...It's called "Round Up", and you need it BADLY on your driveway
  20. And for what it's worth, I've never had a vehicle that didn't dump snow inside when you opened the door.
  21. What's worse...Leaving the wipers on and coming out the next morning and there's 1/2" of ice covering the whole truck...Start it, wipers kick on, wipers DON'T MOVE, strip out the wiper I've done this TWICE now.
