  1. Your car has always had those arms. It was in my camp 10+ years ago. One of my favorite DDs Here it is in 2016 I believe
  2. Its down the street from my office. Been for sale for a long time. If anyone wants me to go look at it i'll walk over and check it out for you
  3. This car looks like you could drive it into a brick wall and the wall would apologize
  4. Sounds like a beefy car. Or you can be a knucklehead like me and take your sand car chassis to both.....I've beefed up just about every heim on my car. Lowers are 3/4" and there's been a bit of added bracing. Going to "box" by lower arms and add some more roll cage bracing this off season as well
  5. If you’re using an exchange to trade and keeping your crypto in a wallet or ledger on the block chain you won’t necessarily be targeted. But as soon as a gain is realized by transferring that crypto to cash, that’s where Uncle Sam gets his cut.
  6. The most important thing to learn when welding is puddle control and heat penetration. You can go spend $2k on a machine and just spew wire all over the place with no idea what you’re doing. If you start with a small 110 flux machine, you can learn how to control a puddle, and for cheap. Then when you step up it’ll just get better and better, and easier too. There will always be a place in your garage for a cheap 110
  7. So in doing more research of the CP4 issues, it seems as though one of my choices being the '15-newer 6.7L all have a CP4. They used an electric lift pump which the LML did not, so that's a plus. But now has me rethinking that option
  8. Looking forward to seeing this come together
  9. I get asked pretty often by people who are interested in welding what to start with. Buy this, it is a fantastic machine to learn on. Being that it's flux it's just pull the trigger and go, no need to try to learn about gas and CFUs and mixtures, etc. You can weld a multitude of steel with it, and yes there's slag, but get a slag hammer and a grinder and go for it. It's dirt cheap and is super portable. I started with this machine, stepped up to a MIG, and now do about 95% TIG. But I still kept this little hobart and from time to time love pulling it out and using it for small project. https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200711842_200711842?cm_mmc=Google-pla&utm_source=Google_PLA&utm_medium=Welding > MIG %2B Flux Core Welding > MIG %2B Flux Core Welders&utm_campaign=Hobart&utm_content=68750&gclid=Cj0KCQiAk4aOBhCTARIsAFWFP9Fg07GivAGDvp9Ngk_kWAvdtaDCwmjqFOp-pisTLBR1BmyVzpoEI0EaAjD2EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
  10. 32 x 9.50 x 15” 10 ply tires. Brand new. $170 each
  11. My current setup is about 9k lbs. But with an opportunity for more I may switch to a fiver in the future. We’ll see. I drive about a mile to the office so gas mileage isn’t a make or break. I get about 10mpg so if it’s more it’s welcomed
  12. Thanks for all the info, and the links to a few trucks for sale. This is really what I was hoping for out of this thread. As I start to dig @Bldrinker has me thinking a Ford 6.2 is a very viable option as well. I definitely need to do more research on the CP4 issues
  13. Considering the pros and cons is the point of this thread. Before I commit to a truck I would like to know my options. A gasser would be one of them I guess, but my focus has been on diesel. A brand new truck for low 50s is a great deal though
  14. Really good info TJ, thank you. I'll look around for an '11+ Dmax as well. Yea, not too much to add to that. Doesn't apply to my truck currently. I bought it for $25k in 2014, and would be lucky to get $16k for it now. But i've also put well over 100k miles on it.
