You know what you must do, and who you are to them.

Single jet ski trailer behind my Dads CJ7 when I was 16. I got mad, unhooked the trailer, and let is slide down the last few feet at the boat ramp.

Brad Mig welding aluminum. Yeah.......I wanna stick with TIG. But it’s 1/4” to 3/8” and the tig machine keeps popping the breaker. Oh well. It’s getting powder coated anyway so it will cover up all the booger’s

Stick those on the fenders. I have a lowrider car hauler that can't be seen when empty unless the tailgate is down.
I use these on my 6' trailer I made out of a 51 GMC stepside pickup bed . It has aluminum Jeep fenders rather than the gigantic stock fenders. So I put these in the rear stake bed pockets. I can back that thing anywhere with them. But leave them at home and that lil bitch will swing from one side to the other so fast you will swear somebody is messing with you.
I put a small piece of tape on the top at the center of my closed pickup tailgate so I can reference my trailer hitch from the windshield mirror. The yellow balls can then be watched through the same mirror so make sure it's going where I want it to.

True shit.

I have a small box popup camper.

dave_dj1 I heard through the grapevine that my BIL was selling his matching numbers 69 Z28 Camaro that he is the second owner of. I just heard from my nephew that it is indeed going to NC but not sold, it's gone to be fixed up. It's about time!
I found the car in a garage about 3 miles from my house. It took my BIL about 2 years to buy it. At that time it had been in the guys garage for 15 years. My brother in law has owned it for about 10 years, garaged the entire time. The body on the car is extremely nice, we never fired it as the carb is missing but I'm sure every rubber component needs to be replaced at this point. I can't wait until it's back on the road

Heck yea! I had seen those before but never thought to use them like that.

I'll pick up a set, thanks man!

crispins My driveway is a few 100 feet long.
I do not have room to turn around when I have my trailer attached so I have to back out, no big deal I do it a few times a week.
Well yesterday I was backing out going around a little curve I have on the driveway. I have a truck I bought to resell parked over to the side.
Car trailers do suck backing up as they sit low and are hard to see.
I lost site of it for a second and instead of proceeding with caution I just 'sent it' - right into the bumper of the truck.
Fuck me! I've have never hit anything before, not even while delivering firewood
Ordered a new bumper for it today and will have to have it painted. Damn truck was super nice, no paint issues on it at all.
Really pissed that I did that.

Black Sheep Bought a 2013 f150 for a client. Im really trying to like the truck, but I cant. I'd never want to own one.

The auto feels like a rubber band trans. Too much nanny shit in a basic XLT. Way, way too much plastic shit that clips together. Apparently all the driver seat wears out in 100k. The short bitch bed is useless.

Pros- 5.0 has decent power unloaded. The rear electric locker is cool.

Our company structure is such that by my title I am limited to $1,000 wo approval. Which is annoying, because part of my job/title also requires me to order items upwards of $10,000 fairly often.

Hell I wonder if they are going to flag the $1,000 I just put on the card for the hotel I am staying in for the week. Kinda waiting to max the card out, I know it is going to happen sooner or later with as much as I have been traveling. Pretty sure it is a $5,000 limit

conwaymuddy Woke up at 4 to go duck hunting. Thought I heard sirens which is pretty rare out here. Look out the kitchen window and see flashing lights, road was blocked to the few cars coming down at that hour. Squads and firetrucks, dont know what happened but a car got hauled off 5 hours later. Saw one lousy mallard hen all morning, she got a pass, just like the 3 woodie hens yesterday. Replaced the brake hoses on the Colorado yesterday hoping it would fix the dragging front caliper, it did not.

Stupid weekend

And the first person to start a conversation with me is a guy I didn't hire last year. He seemed a little butthurt, makes me even more glad I didn't hire him

I feel you there.
Boss says "just order the damn thing, quit wasting my time trying to save a dollar" Suppose that's why he's running the place and I'm working for him.

Copy. I never got the opportunity to play with a second gen inoperable rear window. I would assume it would be the same, minus the removable top safety switch.

Find that in a junk yard or open it up and fix it.
