  5. Had an elderly man died in a trailer park next to my shop in Las Vegas no ac in the trailer I called the cops when I first smelled it they couldn’t find anything they finally found him about 2 weeks later middle of summer also I can only imagine what it smelled like in the trailer I closed the shop for a week
  6. What about the 18000 lb winch from harbor freight I know they get pretty decent reviews on the off road forums we’ve beat on a 9000 lb winch pretty hard and not had any issues so far

  13. Acem I grew up around Ozark still have quite a bit of family there I know all too well how crazy they get I live in south eastern Missouri now and they still go nuts up here have several truck drivers I work with that if they even start talking about snow they call out
  14. Had that on several small block gm manifolds used a bolt with a nut and usually a socket or piece of pipe to make a spreader to push them back out
  15. I know in one episode they mention some of ottos past about being a retired machinist and having sold his machine shop
  16. That truck is actually dot legal he runs it all over the USA yes it is a dot magnet but that I know of I’ve never heard of him not passing an inspection no it’s not my cup of tea either he’s on several face book groups
  17. We have Columbia day cab gliders at work they are pretty light not sure exactly on the weight though
  18. I’ve had three escapes an 03,06, and a 15 all were good just watch on the newer one with the turbocharged 1.6 they require a timing belt change at 150000 and I think the tools for it are about 200 just got a 19 Durango and we love it
  19. Yeah my fiancé wanted a Tahoe and I finally talked her into looking at a Durango and she loves it we got the gt plus awd 80 mph it just floats
  20. Don’t know if you ever went and drove the v6 but just bought one last week and fairly impressed with it. It definitely makes the Durango move out. The auto start stop takes some getting used to I tend to turn it off if I’m much traffic
  21. I use rand McNally gps it does pretty good most of the time but you do have to watch it I’ll cross reference it with sattelite view on google maps if the directions seem a little sketchy also have my truck atlas handy at all times sometimes you need to make a quick detour
