    Steel spacers for filled tires?

    I put the Bro-Tek’s on today. Very fun job. Wheels were heavy but I didn’t have too hard a time moving them around. I just let them rest against the front tires. When I went back on I just let off the parking brake so I could turn the hub to position and lowered the jack as needed and the wheels...

    Need quality trailer wiring kit.

    My biggest concern has been the wiring itself. As others have mentioned UV light really affect the cheap readily available wiring that is included in many aftermarket LED lighting kits. The insulation will crack and the wire corrodes inside. I have yet to find a good kit with good wiring.

    Need quality trailer wiring kit.

    Something like this may be an option. I’m not a fan of the pinch blade connections but it may be doable. Yeah I always use corrugated wire conduit and good straps/routing. Grounds can become an issue with weather. There’s always a length of wire that’s exposed or on a bend and those cheap wires...

    Trailering passenger car

    Ive seen tow truck drivers do some jenky stuff. I had to have my barracuda towed once when my clutch Linkeage broke. The tow truck driver was very happy that I had welded on tow straps on all four corners. He said he swears bullets sometimes on classic cars due to lack of places to hook to but...

    Are people lazy, don’t know how to help or scared of liability.

    Same goes for college students. My Wife teaches med students and it’s unbelievable the amount of entitled, lazy brats that think they don’t have to do the work and demand that they get preferential treatment. They whine and complain to my wife’s boss who just laughs at the ridiculousness of the...

    The one thing that you wonder why you didn't buy sooner?

    very cool Newbury. Here in the Appalachians we get some freaky storms and there’s usually at least one out of 5 motorists with a chainsaw.

    Second to my pistol I can’t go anywhere without at least one chainsaw . I bought a dewalt 60V cordless chainsaw and have used the ever loving snot out of it on many occasions.

    Dealers Not Accepting Some Brands on Trade

    The dealer I got my TYM from told me they sell most of their tractors out of state and can hardly keep up with demand. They’d always be willing to take my trade and they’re about 9 miles away from me. They’re also opening up two more dealerships and they currently service many other makes and...

    What is it with Harley riders?

    It doesent bother me that they’re loud and they blip the throttle. In many cases it alerts people at intersections to their presence so those that may be driving zombies might not jerk into the lane the bike is in. Just today I had a guy on a Harley doing this exact thing and it was clear he was...
