    I bought some snow tires off eBay. Then the sun came out and they melted.

    Ripoff, would not buy again.

    Now that's what I call programmed obsolescence. :happy175:

    I'm on my second set... returning the defective set and getting a replacement set was a *****...

    I feel like I'm banished to the random thoughts section with the truck lol.

    Installed rear cargo rings, mud flaps and some convex mirrors to help with people hiding in my blind spots. For some reason small cars think it's a great idea to just ride as close to the side of my bed as possible.

    Amen!!
    My GF teases me about my organization of tools, hunting gear, basically everything. I tell her that that is the only way a scatterbrain like me will EVER find anything. Nothing bothers me more than not being able to find something when I need/want it.

    Except when you look all over and you know you have one and just can't find it .....so then you just go out and buy one cause you really need it right now.......and then a couple of weeks later you find the other one and you have two now and really only need one.....that's worse...............:gr_grin:

    Which just happened to me last month. Anyone need a faucet seat tool?

    On top of everything else, when I was in the hardware store and asked for a faucet seat tool they showed me this gizmo for tightening down the nuts on toilet seats. When I said "No, it's to replace a faucet seat" I could feel the confusion as they tried to figure out just where you would sit down on a faucet.

    The one tool I can't ever keep track of is tire pressure gauges. There's one in the KL and one in the LR I think but I'm always looking for one.

    Got a lot of them.

    Tricky part is toolboxes on roller carts; When I walk over to them to get a tool the whole cart is somewhere else or the wrong one... Go Fish!

    Sorted taps today and came up with a loose scheme.

    I'll never need any more allen wrenches or drill bits.

    Been looking at Police Crown Vics today
    They make lifts for them:emotions34::emotions34:
    Thinking 3-4 inches of lift, 31s-possibly 32s , ARB in the rear , some aggressive tires
    Good vehicle to drive to work
    Need new project, something sort of off the wall that you don't see daily
