    It sure is! But i try to use the wood stove more often or the giant torpedo heater every now and then saves a little money and I've got acres of woods for wood burning! That's probably only a 3rd of it what you can see!...I'm actually extremely fortunate that the company I work for pays for my house and shop since I'm the only one in the city that i live in for my company, they need a shop and it's cheaper to get a mouse with shop than for them to find a shop in town available and plus I'm here all the time so I can make sure it's always secure not getting broke into etc. But it's not an easy job and I work my ass off and hate every second of my job other than being very physically demanding I like that lol

    It's nice but for some reason I find myself in here all too often, changing oil's sooner than needed, tearing saws apart just to rebuild and hopefully make run like new when not needed haha I'd let ya in I'd even open the garage door for you haha

    I got a feeling that you are of of those guys that can fix just about anything. A real life Mcguyver. You got an awesome Daily driver. That rig looks like it could climb anything and not get stuck.

    Thanks @Bob!!!and @Palerider I can fix alot of things and Jerry rig them to work but I'm suspension retarded lol all my other trucks I've bought and added little things, this is the first one I bought bone stock and did everything 100 percent by me so I guess I know some about suspension now...I tell you what though doing your own lift and research on what to do what not to do really really improves your knowledge on whatever it is my case suspension lol

    That's incredible. If I had you and Ol Blue as neighbors I'd be happy from now on. Always seem to get the folks that don't work on crap. Don't even come out side. Lol. Welcome to the site I think you bring a tremendous amount of knowledge.
