Driving home from breakfast after work this morning and a bird decided to fly into my truck. Now I need a new headlight assembly. Are non GM ones any good, thinking I'll just fork out double and get OEM. I'm surprised the fender isn't dented. Sent from my Find7 using Tapatalk
A lot of times I can't see car roofs either, truck's butt is high up plus the tool box I have in the bed. My favorite is when I come out and the car behind me has hit me. Especially the newer cars with plastic bumpers, when I pull out I hear those bumpers POP back out haha. I believe having a rear view camera has made me worse at parking. Seems like I pay less attention and rarely get backed in in 1 try anymore. Then again with the dually I have to be a bit more precise than I did with my 2500s.
Wait you're implying that hitting things while backing isn't normal? How do y'all know when to stop? I keep going until my hitch hits the concrete wall, pole, tree, or hill behind me. I've bent a few fences that way at work, they should just have more fence poles so I hit those instead of in between them where I bend the fence back.
Chevyguy85 replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomInteresting. I've been wanting something somewhat secure for storage. The safe variants I've been looking at for years are too expensive for me to justify getting. I wonder if they'll come out with a longer version that will fit items longer than 35 inches. I also wonder how easy it is to pick or force open. *edit* Looks like they have the longer version.
My 01 2500HD had 90k or there about when I sold it, all original brakes. 2006 2500HD had 112k also original brakes. Current 2009 3500HD is 77k and all original as well. Hooray for less traffic compared to up north I guess. Funny that family up north comes down and b****es about the traffic here when I think it's worse up there. Some of y'all go through brakes fast lol
My grandfather and dad taught me some things when they were alive. Sadly I've most likely forgotten most of what my grandfather taught me and he probably forgot more than my dad ever knew. Even my grandmother was pretty mechanically inclined. I guess when you race Maseratis, Ducatis, and own a mechanics shop you can't help but know some stuff. Plus apparently way back then in Italy she had to disassemble an engine and put it back together as part of her drivers license test. Dad helped that neighbor out all the time on his Willy's build, didn't get to see this iteration completed though.
Neighbor and I did the pinion seal. Dealer wanted $383 or about there. We did it for under $70 for the seal, 4 quarts of fluid, and the socket. Harbor freight and the non chain auto parts store didn't have a 36mm, O'Reillys surprisingly did though. I wonder how if he'll volunteer to help fix whatever goes wrong next time. It's great having neighbors who know what they're doing and willing to help out.
Chevyguy85 replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomMaybe if someone made a full size car that I don't consider a midsize I'd consider buying a car one day, they're all so tiny unless you go to the higher end luxury cars. Why can't we have something the size of a second gen impala again? Heck even the crown vics seem to make today's "full size" seem mid size. I do agree with the above though, domestics are pretty bland unless you get up in the higher trim levels. Can't really compete with some of the so called import warranties though.
Early Thursday morning after work I changed the 3rd brake lights to LED as well as the driving (fog) lights to LEDs. Last night before going to work buddy and I switched the tail lights, front turn signals, front corner markers, and all 4 headlights to LEDs as well. Took the time to turn/adjust the headlights so they're pointing pretty much where the halogens were, hot spots and all. They're bright as hell and look awesome. Must have done it right no one flashed me on the way to work or on the way home. Time will tell I guess. Since it was getting dark we didn't start putting the resistors in so I'll have to put up with hyper flashing for a week or so until I get back down to my buddy's place. I have pretty much no experience soldering so I'll leave that to him. Also need to wait for some diodes to come in the mail so I can have my cargo lights come on in reverse and keep the fogs on with the high/lows. I don't know why I didn't do the fogs when I did the high/lows it would have been another 3 minutes. Maybe this weekend I'll wash the truck and clean the glass. Dash cam glares horribly from my dirty windshield, yay Florida humidity.
Chevyguy85 replied to ccdies's topic in Major League Sports, Outdoor Recreation, Firearms, Hunting, OHRVWhen I carry my 4" Redhawk 44 mag I find suspenders help carrying the load better in conjunction with a good belt.
So another feature that can't be used with a hitch on the truck? Just like the backup alert (whatever it's called) on my dually that beeps at me because I have a hitch, who would have thought that someone who owns a truck would have a hitch on it? Certainly not the people that design these things lol. I wonder if this nonsense will be carried over to the HDs.
