Cell phone / wireless discussion & deals

Oh forgot to update this. Wife got me a jailbroken S8+. I wanna say it might be a re-manufacture or refresh or whatever. No idea what she paid for it, but it works like new. Pretty solid. All I had to do was go to the Verizon store and pay $10 or $15 bucks for a micro sim card since my old one didn...

So I bought some useless junk recently...

You can also make caramel from condensed milk in it without constantly stirring the bitch.
Wife did that and was in a diabetic coma for the weekend.

The budget beater Meowta build

Simple green/Purple power, and a parts brush cleans up most things. It needs more than that. I've got a ton of brake cleaner for quick work on some spots. I've also go gallons of concentrated purple power and Sam's degreaser (actually cuts pretty good) that I plan on soaking it in beforehand. I got...

I bought into the air fryer craze. It was massive. Way large than I expected but it is 6 qts. I don't like fried food in general. This is making some real tasty stuff without the grease. Did some fried catfish. It's kinda like a cripsy baked fish. Also did advocado "fries". Flour and bread crumbs m...

:dat: most exciting thing going on around here since God’s Chariot was completed. I got the crank pulley off last night and transferred over the alternator.

I feel you on the comfy shit. And the space. While I love my Silverado, the only thing I don't like is the gas mileage and shitty gearing. The cargo space is pure awesome tho, it's the reason I need a crew cab in my next truck because when I haul my bass gear to gigs and there's a chance of rain I ...

Take them out every hour religiously for the first week. If they're not potty trained by then, you're doing something wrong. A crate shouldn't be used as punishment, you want them to consider it their safe place. Be sure to schedule daily exercise and training activities. Also handle their appendag...

Is potential new to you truck going to still be the daily? I thought about this on my way to work this morning because I saw a Silverado 2500 at a stop light. I remembered a friend of mine has a 2500 and he says it rides like ass unless he's hauling or towing something behind it. It was his daily a...

If I hear this is an issue with the 6 speed in the diesel, I'm considering something else. Alan mentioned the other guys here had the issue but its not as widespread. Blah 6-speed auto doesn’t seem to suffer the same fate. That being said, we do have friends who have had bad luck with the Babymax s...

Well I may or may not be buying these. Real Speedlines off an '04. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190816/dc898b808101b1ebaf26b3d589946643.jpg Fake news.

I just want some low and flush fit with rotatability. I don't track it I just want it to look better on the cheap. See if :melon: has some side profile pictures of his 285s on his. It's likely flush. A common size would be the 275 probably. My 315s likely stick out a bit past the edge of the rim lip.

4 rears? Not speedlines huh? I got a full set of Speedlines from a local guy for $250 because he just wanted em gone. I sold the 2 fronts to Griff and found 2 rears later. If they're just regular wheels and you wanna run squares I'd say go for it. If they're speedlines or even Alcoas, jump on them ...

Common problems are easily solvable, but I'd still prefer to buy a car that they were all addressed (like mine). Buying a pre-modded car is a fantastic bargain IMO. I wish I had bought a heads/cam car myself. Would have been cheaper to start with by a wide margin. Your car is the only thing that mi...

If you don't get into the engine and tuning, I think your fine. Bolt ons like an axle back or :ramz: are probably OK if you keep the stock parts. My car is way more fun now than it was stock, and more reliable to boot. People just don't see it that way. One dude wasted my time with a "I wish the ca...

4.10s were in the cards but I think the stock tune doesn't like the dorman ls6 manifold that's on it. Sometimes the car feels like it has 350+ hp and sometimes it feels like 300hp. I just need to fix the sticky clutch and get it tuned I think that will help. If it wasn't retuned for the intake, the...

You can take the covers off of them. It's a skeleton shell underneath full of foam. I completely removed mine when finding some issues and tore it completely down to the structure.
