    OK, so got home last night...took the plain white closet doors out of our room and installed them in the spare bedroom. Then installed the new mirror ones in our room! Went in great thanks to my work cutting the end off and my neighbor helping carry these things in!

    Some random thoughts from a guy who sees a dozen of them a day at the dealer... We do see tire wear up front, usually on the inside edges. First, a wheel alignment performed by a competent tech who will not only set your toe-in but will actually adjust the camber to near 0 degrees like it should be. Most of the Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons and Escalades we set up on the alignment machine have very low camber in the front which needs to be corrected. Ask to see the before and after alignment printouts, they aren't hard to decipher. You will more than likely need to rotate your tires more often than every 6,000 miles like the owners manual says, and keep them inflated to what the label on the drivers door jamb says. If the driver routinely takes corners at speed you will cut your tire life in half. It's ok to admit that your spouse does this, I'm married too. We also see worn brakes but more often than not it is on vehicles that are clearly not well taken care of. The majority of the large SUVs will get quite a few miles from the brake lining. The finish of the brake rotors is also of paramount importance, a cut from a lathe with worn cutters will look like a record and you will never get the stopping power from this as compared to a new rotor. Most of the time the rotors will not need to be resurfaced, General Motors actually does not recommend it unless there is scoring in excess of .060". If you have vibrations when you brake the rotors have excessive thickness variation (they are not warped) likely caused from improper previous brake service and/or improper wheel nut torque. The brake rotors on most GM vehicles built in the last 15 years have a surface finish that is carburized and is very hard, the rotor runout tolerance is only .001" so it is important to remove any rust from the hub flange when installing rotors. Needless to say 7 out of 10 techs do not know how to properly service disc brakes, they may think they do but they don't. This type of repair should require a license. Keep your fluids clean and fresh, all of them. And if your vehicle has high pressure direct injection, it is a good idea to have a fuel system service done at least every 50,000 miles. There is no fuel sprayed onto the backside of the intake valves so they get layer upon layer of burnt oil vapor which will eventually causes the valve to hang open and cause a misfire. I literally see this almost daily. There are certain chemicals available to the dealer which will correct this when administered in the right dosage and method. The bottle of cleaner you add to your fuel tank does nothing so save your money. Your trans fluid needs to be changed at least every 50,000 miles. If your vehicle has an 8 speed it requires Mobil1 fully synthetic ATF. Oiled K+N filters and "cold air intakes" have no place in late model GM vehicles. Them sonsofbitches have caused me so much grief while trying to determine why your engine doesn't run right I won't hardly even work on a vehicle that has them anymore. Cold air intake??? Yeah right! Leave those for the kids with Hondas your 6.2l doesn't need it. If you have a 2015 or newer SUV and you have noticed your a/c isn't as cold as it once was, it may have a leak at the condenser. A lot of these vehicles (but not all) have a special policy that will cover the condenser replacement beyond the base warranty. Anyways, I could go on and on about this stuff. Don't shovel your full sized GM SUVs onto the trash heap because you think it is POS, it might be something you have or haven't done that created your problems. These late model SUVs are absolutely the best engineered and most trouble free trucks I have worked on in the last 30 years.

    So... I've "kind of" done this before... We were in Thailand. I was on a bender and a flaming shot kick. I ordered a round of flaming shots. I told everyone what to do, how to drink it without burning themselves. The shots come, we light them...throw my straw in and the girl next to me from the ship..."what do I do again?" so I ignore my flaming shot...start helping her with hers. The guy across from me..."Dude...you're straw is melting." I reach in to grab my straw...burn my fingers. What's the first thing you do? Yep...stick them in your mouth...with molten plastic on them...Now my mouth is burnt. THEN what do you do? Yep...you guessed it again. Take a drink. Which I grab the flaming shot...which has now turned the glass hot red. I burn a f*cking smile like the f*cking Joker from Batman into my face, burned my mouth, tongue, fingers...then the girl says..."well that's stupid. I'm not doing it." So glad I'm here for you all....

    1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. My dad bought it in California in the 80's. Drove it for a little while then he drove it back to Utah in the 90's parked it in his garage and there it has been sitting.He passed away and I went back to Utah picked it up and trailered it back to California, washed it and pushed it in the garage. It has not been started in many years. It is in very good shape. The motor is a 400 with an automatic. It has 78,059 orig miles.It ran great when he parked it but it hasnt been started in 20+ years. It is being sold as is. Vin # 2W87Z6N543781I have the title, it is clean. The pics of it dusty is what it looked like sitting in the garage all those years. Any questions, please let me know.

    Unfortunately life is requiring that I change a few things. I am selling my Coach and my beloved Lexus GX470. I started with the best year. 2005 had more horsepower than any other year of the gx470. Low mileage 130k, timing belt and water pump done at 100k. King coil overs and reservoir shocks front and rear. LSK upper control arms and spindle gussets. Heavy duty rear coils. Custom roof rack set up with Roof Top Tent. Foxwing awning, solar panel wired to controller, dual Odyssey batteries. GG lighting 50” single row and Smittybuilt traction boards, also a shovel mount. Custom rear bumper with high lift jack, Titan Fuel tanks 12 gallon tank, and full size spare. ARB 50qt Fridge, aluminum storage containers, Renogy remote solar suitcase, and camp table. Seats in great shape (always covered with molle rear panels with multiple pouches for tools, med gear etc). Weather tech front an drear mats, LED headlights and fogs. 285/70r17 BFG KO2 with 5k miles on them on Method Con 6’s. Custom exhaust with magnaflow muffler. I was about to start the rear drawer set up and on board water system. The longer I have the truck, the more work will be done and the more the price will increase. Truck is a great camping and exploring rig. $25k (at this point)

    Have a friend who married ( for a short time at least) a stripper. She was to say the least the one who ran the house. Well when their daughter was born she named the kid her old stripper name. I still remember asking him if that wouldn't make coming up with her own stripper name a little more difficult when the time came. He found no humor in that......... At least until this past weekend when he told me like mother like daughter. I didn't ask what name she would be going by.

    One of the Vietnamese guys at my wife's work was having a kid and she told me they were going to name the kid Maverick. A little odd I thought, but as mentioned above, not my kid so whatever. When the baby was born pictures were posted on Facebook. Typical stuff, mom in the bed holding the newborn. I died laughing though when I saw that the dad and his buddies/family were all wearing the same Top Gun shirt.

    Until you hit something and it rips it clean out of your hands. Or it breaks your thumb. I guess it would be fine if your just putting around, but not for a balls to the wall run. I can only imagine what a minor witches eye would do to my car without the power steering.

    Thanks, it wasn't easy getting it in there, but it was way way worth it. Aside from the obvious upgrade, It changed the whole handling of the car, got some weight down low in the back, corners much better, surprisingly.

    forced technology transfer, theft of IP, currency manipulation..... I'm a former Wall Street Guy and I listen to CNBC about 4 hours a day. Communist China has 'stolen' wealth from America that you can measure in the Trillions..... Heck, they probably stole 250b from MSFT alone with pirated windows OS. Or the hundreds of billion they stole from AAPL in the form of forced technology transfer that went directly to Huawei to build phones to compete with AAPL. Don't get me started on the currency manipulation, manipulated GDP or manipulation of the yield curve through buying/selling US Treasury's...….. On a side note, the retaliatory tariffs on US tequila, really gonna kill the America tequila industry.... 😕

    Demoncrats can do no wrong! I'm so sick of all of them. Too bad we can't just clean house, clear the slate and start new with non-career politicians.

    From what I read Glen Helen did not want to meet the AMA's demands about financial compensations, the AMA also wanted lap times under the 2:00 minute mark. Big mistake for the AMA. Glen Helen was the premiere west coast track. From what I saw and remember about Pala ( other than the piss poor planning for the influx of spectators) was that it was pretty much a flat field with a track built on it. Unlike Glen Helen where it is a track built into the terrain.

    Seems there's always tension between groups. Sandcars, SxS, quads, bikes, etc, but I don't think it generally extends beyond online BS'ing. Most people are generally cool, as long as you aren't being a dick to them. I've seen way more acts of aggression with other outdoor sports, like surfing, than I have at Glamis. I think much of the animosity towards SxS people is that the popularity of SxS has brought a lot of people who have never been desert folks to Glamis (and other places). Many of these newer people don't seem to have any riding/camping etiquette or respect for public land. Not that there aren't plenty of sandcar/bike/quad riders that dump trash, but the fact that SxS are the trendy new thing and popular for newbies makes them an easy target, if you will. My group is small but you're always welcome with us in wash 10, and I'm sure you will find plenty of others that will say the same. I like being with a group, doesn't matter what you ride, we are all there for the same reason.
