The Garage at Ballz Deep

Got word that my Gladiator is completed and currently in line to have the spray-in bed liner applied. With any luck, it'll be completed and shipped toward the end of the week, then it'll be a matter of how quickly the facility that handles leases can get it to me. :excited: :hubba: Should be there ...

Zildor's Garage

I've been debating solar at some point on our camper, but I put the biggest battery the battery box can fit (a Group 29 IIRC) and we've yet to deplete it over a weekend. And that's old incandescent lights, running the water pump, etc. We'll challenge it when we run the furnace this fall :doe: How d...

Not that I noticed, but I wasn't paying close attention. I will on our next road trip. The 2.0T is great overall...really solid engine.

I can't think of an aspect that isn't better. Pretty remarkable, really.

I wouldn't pay $50k for it...but $50k is pushing the upper limits of what I'm willing to pay for any vehicle. Low $40k like we paid is more palatable. Still pricey :doe: We'll see how well it holds its value, but hopefully it won't matter much if it stays for a while. It'll be over 30 for 3 years.....

So service director at Toyota liked my plan to grow into the management job, despite it being poor timing based off their immediate needs. My old service manager was there in the interview, and is now director at a sister store. Both of them have apparently told ownership its worth investment in me...

Stomach is feeling a bit off this morning. There’s been something going around.. wonder if I’ve finally caught it.
You got the Craids.
This was my thought too.

Careful, it can be terminal if gone untreated. Avoid :dolphin: s and :hibachi: for at least 48 hours...72 to be on the safe side.

Should be assembled today. :excited: Drove the JL for the first time yesterday, it's really quite great. Steering is tight and leagues better than the JK was.

That is :neat: and should make for some great adventures ! What kind of amenities are inside ? A mattress, audio w/BT and cockford foozgate speakers, AC with heat strips (not sure how effective those will be), but nice if the temps get down into the 40s I suppose. I'll look into retrofitting a heat...

I had a dr. appt this morning so I got in late. The "competitive" lot in BFE was full, so I had to park on the roof of a 5 story parking garage (roof is only where competitive vehicles can park).

I like the slide-out galley over the rear galley like traditional tear drops. Seems like a far more efficient use of space.

Looking forward to seeing more on this for sure.

Probably going to get serious about selling it in the Spring. My dad's leaving for the winter and I should be able to squeak the car into his heated garage. Out of sight, out of mind for the winter.
