I bought a 02 Pathfinder about a year ago. 3.5/auto/4wd. Really clean body, nice BFG KO2's, Warn Premiums, nice black interior. Seemed like a good gamble. Well, turns out these things are worthless on the used market. Especially with 300k miles. We're talkin' sub $1500. The truck was a donation and seemed like it had a blown headgasket. Between the plethora of projects, the lack of value and my general distaste for working on Nissan's, I parked it off to the side of the garage and basically forgot about it.

Well, today I dug the ol' finder of paths out. After a good two hours of diagnostic testing and the "speshul" coolant bleeding process. It seems that it just had an air bubble in the system and is actually mechanically sound. Heck, I can't find anything wrong with the whole truck... excluding the missing radio and a shock bushing that rattles. My best guess judging by the engine bay is someone put a new radiator in it and then didn't know how to get all the air bubbles out of the system and then called one of those cash for junk cars hotlines. I think I paid $350 for this thing. I need to find the paperwork. But I am kind of pumped. I had basically written this truck off in my head.

Nice!
In 07 or so I bought a really clean 98 civic, bad head gasket. Disappearing coolant, compression tested good, sniffers good, pressure tested good. Typed off, drove to work, all good. After my shift, I pop the hood, radiator empty, overflow jug full. Bad radiator cap. Gas was $4.50 a gallon that summer, it was a good flip

Got a call last Monday from my boss while i was on vacation.

Another division of the company reached out to HR who reached out to him about me as the primary candidate for a position.

I was in unofficial talks about 1.5 months back on a position for this division that was a friends old position he recommended me for, some things changed at work and the wife & I are now interested/willing to move as a result, however position was backfilled when i asked my friend about it.

Details provided to me on the brief call were vague but i was asked if i wanted to pursue the position and was under the assumption it was this one and maybe my friend was wrong. Asked if so & so was the manager, he was unsure really of any details outside of a job title that was similar enough in nature. Told my boss i had some questions that i needed answered but yes i was interested in pursuing.

Haven't heard anything since which is understandable with the 4th & Friday we shut the shop down, so i rang up my friend to talk to him today briefly. Position is for sure backfilled...So here i sit wondering for the next 18 hrs WTF is the position they're interested in me for and hope i'm not stuck moving forward if it's not what i thought it was.

I'm convinced only a retard would buy a 6.0 Ford, there's way too many other good trucks out there.
Im over diesel pickups for the most part. Especially newer ones. I have my '97 F250 and I doubt I'll buy another newer diesel in the foreseeable future. V10 Fords will do what I want for the most part. If not, I'll use the semi.



On a kind of related note...the blower fan in the sleeper of a semi truck will kill the 4 batteries in approx 12hrs if left running overnight.

I bought an 04 Yukon 2 weeks ago that "probably needs injectors" because thats what their family friend mechanic told them some months back. Apparently popping the hood and take 2min to look at the plug wires was too much trouble, as it had a broken one. I literally electrical taped it back together and drove it 30mi Autozone and put a set of plug wires on it. Runs fucking perfect.

It will get a full detail next weekend and a 4th matching factory wheel then Im gonna see if I can get 3 grand for it.

I put a non bent bumper on my truck and a front hitch receiver and bought a dana 60 front end for it.

In case anyone was wondering when a 2000 suzuki viterra has the valves start ticking from being low on oil it will take between 4 and 5 quarts to top it off.

On my envoy its time to add oil when the pressure drops under acceleration. On the plus side no need to change it if you just keep adding it....

On a 1990 Toyota Celica it is 3.75 quarts to top it off. Drove that car for several more years and then sold it to a friend who drove it for at least 5 years after that. No worries.

Was in the driveway and heard some euro doves. Went in the house to grab a 12ga, loaded some 4's cause fuck those invasive fuckers. Walked down in the oaks and boom, boom 2 down...in the poison oak. 3 dogs, 2 heelers and a lab...the young heeler was my retriever. Go figure. Anyway, mama was fixing supper when all this went down so I did the right thing and cleaned them and added them to the meal. Gotta love fresh food.

I just bought this thing the other day



Its my first Jeep so what i dont understand is how does this Jeep thing work? Do i have to wave at every Jeep or just jks all decked out, or do I stick to only pick up versions of jeeps cause that will make it easy as i dont think i ever seen one of these things anywhere around here except for the brand new ones which are starting to pop up all over town.

Also is there any good sites to join where I can ask newb questions like what size tires can i fit, how do i inflate the tires, and how many cylinders does the v8 have without getting picked on, thanks

I don't think the JK crowd will wave because the won't know that's a jeep.

You could always wait until tomorrow and ask those questions here...

Son ditched the training wheels on his bike this weekend. He was ready but super scared. Lots of tears and "I don't want to do this anymore". Wouldn't let him quit and made him keep going in a oval at the bike path in Alamo(he had issues turning the bars, he just tried leaning). When he stuck it and did a few laps the smile on his face was worth it. I feel bad it took this long because he will be 7 in October but I was working waaaay too much the last 2 years. Tried the Strider balance bike thing but he never got going fast enough to get to the point of coasting and needing to find the balance point.
5 year old is next. She's got riding down, turning, steering without pedaling. Tried to get her to flip the wheels up(they pin up and down) and go straight Onto the grass field but she didn't want anything to do with it. Will make family bike rides a little easier. I had one of the tow bikes(one wheel, pedals a arms bars) and the trailer behind that.

Kids are so much fun! The second kid is so much easier to teach. In my case my little guy took it personal that he was using training wheels. He made us take them off at 4.5 years old. Now at 5 hes rocking a razor electric dirt bike like a superstar. Im sure Im a bad parent for getting them a dirt bike at a young age but I want them to learn how to crash at 12mph and 20 off the ground vs 36 and doing 40.

Enjoy it brad mark my words in a month hell be pulling wheelies and doing skid turns. Make sure you encourage that behavior when the mama bear is not around.

Pretty sad, they have taken over here. You see very few morning doves anymore. There are hundreds in our neighborhood alone. I wish I lived where I could cull them with a shotgun! I could have a freezer full of em.

Have a left over 24' stick of 1" square tubing, need to cut it to store it. Debating 2 12's or a 10' and 14'. I am certain no matter how I cut it, I will need 2" longer next time I need it

Luckily it was only $14, so not a big deal. But I hate hard decisions.

I'm sure you have the capability to making it 1 piece again. I say 2 12s

Yes, but something about not having to do that seems nice.
