    A Diesel in the New Suburban? Heck Yeah!

    I had one of the 2021s drive by me while walking and was stunned by the lack of ground clearance on the rear suspension. Read a review touting the deep snow performance, usual marketing fluff ungrounded in reality.

    Switching from Ford E-Series to FC/cabover (like Sportsmobile to Earthcruiser 4x4)?

    The 10 has 2 extra overdrive ratios and a deeper first gear. Ford specs list a 40 and 55 gal tank but can’t find the 55 option on the E350 SRW or DRW. Found a couple E350SRW with Unicell 10or 12 ft bodies for around 45k, Ujoint conversion for 20-25. All had 40gal tanks. Looked at 2 with steel...

    Switching from Ford E-Series to FC/cabover (like Sportsmobile to Earthcruiser 4x4)?

    Plenty of new E350 cutaways on commercial truck trader with 7.3 gas motor and variety of commercial utility or box beds. Do a Ujoint conversion and interior and you have it. Interested in the Unicell body vs Knapheide. Fiberglass vs steel

    Fishing neck gaiters

    Looked at them, tried on just never bought. Worried more about losing an ear or nose to melanoma or an aggressive squamous cell. Hand or finger you can do a wide excision and not lose too much function. my motivation for using is more staying cool in high temps than uv protection though. Prefer...

    Fishing neck gaiters

    Simms, the fabric stays cool in high temps unlike buffs. Only brand I buy. They used to make a sunhood out of the same fabric, wear it over a cap when running a boat, keeps the cap on and fits looser than a neck gaiter and more coverage. The solarflex fabric feels like silk. The neck gaiter has...

    Hunting trucks stored on ranchs in South Texas commonly have this problem, most owners use ultrasonic repellents plugged into adjacent power outlets, they say it works. Reviews online are less complimentary.
