  1. Basic 4 pin trailer wiring harness?

    I see the 70 to 80 dollar harnesses as well. I have zero interest in running a cable to the battery to power two 4 watt trailer light bulbs. Although I could just tap into the rear cigarette lighter power. But.... ....what is the deal with the little black box that comes with all of the...
  2. Basic 4 pin trailer wiring harness?

    Do these exist? I'm not interested in spending a hundred and something dollars and that's all I seem to see talked about on here. I do not have the LED lighting so I think I can just tap into the factory tail light wires. I've done this many times before in years past without issue, but it...
  3. Aftermarket bumpers for towing, any experience?

    Thanks for the replies. The EAG ones LOOK like they are pretty chintzy. But I'm only seeing online pics. I know that most things seem to come from China these days. When I said Chinese bumper what I really meant was one from those ebay and amazon sellers that are super cheap. I'm wary of...
  4. How to deal with extended "off grid" camping. ie - WATER

    Fresh water shouldn't be an issue. I'm not too concerned with that. And yes, even most state parks have communial water spiggots that a hose can be attached to. Freezing is of course an issue. I'm prepared to handle that however I need to. And use antifreeze in my poop water lol. I dont...

    Wow! Thanks for the tip Skippy!
  6. The Great Rust Proofing Poll

    hahaha. What in the name of fuck makes you think billywilltinyd knows shit about shit about shit about rust proofing. Some of you guys make me laugh. While I smash my head in to a wall repeatedly because of your ignorance. Guy 1 - "I have no idea what to do" Guy 2 - "Hey guy 1, what should...

  8. College isn't worth it

    Another major problem with college in general is that you're asking a still not even fully developed mind to make a choice that is going to be one of the biggest in their lives. For some it's mostly fine - Like "I've wanted to be a doctor since I was 3 and still do." OK, that may work out...
  9. College isn't worth it

    Also did first half of my degree at community college and then went to a big name, local university. I graduated at 27 years old. I worked the whole time however. The 2nd, expensive half of college took two years while working full time and married. The first half took 7..... that could...
  10. College isn't worth it

    On campus experience....lol. That scares the shit out of me. Especially when your school is 20 minutes from your parents house. It is good for some, but man what a gamble.
  11. Dealer's crazy reason for larger order deposit

    That's crazy, but yeah, the dealer had probably been stuck with a special order before. It definitly happens. My 2000 Silverado was somebody's abandoned order. That truck is a fng unicorn. Half ton, standard cab, 8 foot bed, Z71, 4.10's, posi, dual batteries, towing package, auxiliary oil...
  12. Mounted & Balanced Tires Online

    Got my last combo from DTD. Mounted and balanced and are perfect.
  13. How to deal with extended "off grid" camping. ie - WATER

    Thanks for the crappy tip Cap Obv. Lol. Staying at a park with electricity isn't going to be an all of the time option. They just don't exist in my area. Best you can get NYS park-wise is a camp ground that has a dump station and a spot to fill up fresh tanks. Zero electric. I got...
  14. How to deal with extended "off grid" camping. ie - WATER

    a 10,000 btu unit needs about 700 watts once running, which gives me a 30 hour run time at 25% on the genny. 15,000 btu gives me 15 hours at 50%. So that's about 43 cents/hour fir a 10 or 86/hour with a 15. I'm just gonna have to find out. I'm easily swinging 50 cents an hour right now at...
  15. 35" vs 37" Tires (and lift) on a JLRU for Daily Driver at 70-90 mph

    Would love to see JLUS on 35's with stock suspension and a set of EAG fenders. That's what I'm shooting for. Prolly not gonna happen until spring but that's the plan. Already have the 35's or would be going 37's. If 35's and fenders can work well together I may do a simple spacer kit and go...
  16. 35" vs 37" Tires (and lift) on a JLRU for Daily Driver at 70-90 mph

    I hear ya. To be honest if I could go with that one size up deal I'd use both size coupons on the right one so it matched the size of the left one, which is a bit on the hefty size already. Hard to point out size faults when you're running a lopsided set and leaning hard to the left. Like...
  17. How to deal with extended "off grid" camping. ie - WATER

    That's the basic info I'm looking for. If anyone else wants to chime in...... I should be OK with power by charging with the Jeep. I may get a quiet generator, especially come summer time. It starts to get pretty brutal around here come late May-ish.
  18. Set of tools... which one?

    It's been 8 months, I imagine the OP has either purchased some items or decided agasint it. ANy feedback OP? I'm a major house and car tool nut, been using them professionally for 3+ decades. I certainly have my opinions.
  19. How to deal with extended "off grid" camping. ie - WATER

    Something to think about. I'd sure prefer not to, lol. Especially with my little girl. I want to keep things as "normal" as possible. Luckily she is amazingly adaptable and has the most positive attitude of anyone I've ever met. I guess her mom and I cancel each other ot in that respect.
  20. How to deal with extended "off grid" camping. ie - WATER

    Thanks. Yeah, I know I need to be at that paid spot out of necessity, I just don't know how long I can go in between and what tp do to help myself out when I'm not there. This place, like just about everywhere, has a two week in and then two week out rule. And it gets reaaaal busy during the...
