    Ceramic coating treatment

    Didn’t mean to throw shade at their work, that makes sense that your drying agent was causing the streaks/smears. If the Tw does it without then good, may have to trial and error a few more.

    Ceramic coating treatment

    I’m surprised by the recommendation to use Dawn, that’s what I (and a lot of others) use to strip wax and polishes from vehicles. Dark vehicles are harder, from your description it sounds like the product removal, after it “flashes” may have been laxidasical. I did all 3 of my families DDs...

    Your towing rigs and trailers

    Thanks, next to the tilt deck is a 10k dump trailer. This was the first tow with the Ford, coming from an ‘06 Chevy 2500, it was amazing!

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    Thanks! Good 100 mile shake down run to get it home, very nice to drive. I have some plans for it to make it my own.

    Yes, I was under the impression that the aluminum started in 16’, found out otherwise.

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    Yes I’ve been educating myself on the 6.2 upgrades. Very appealing. I like the newer body style better, but not crazy about white either. My must haves are super cab, long bed, upfitter switches, integrated trailer brake controller, 2.5 inch hitch, back up camera, cab clearance lights, power...

    And forgot, the Chevy goes down the road tomorrow for $5800! I pad $5k for it 3 years ago.

    Enter player 2….probably going to get this one instead. Until I make the 16’ the way I want it, the price difference will be negligible. https://fredbeanstrucks.com/work-truck/used-2018-Ford-F250-pickup-truck-4726692#

    Recent projects with new trailer

    I also have a Brimar 6x12, 10k. I have 4 D rings welded to the floor from the factory. At times stuff will hang up, but it’s usually not a huge inconvenience.

    Trailer Tire Rotation?

    I do it every other year or so, usually the passenger side has more scrub wear (outer shoulder)

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    Never figured mine out, but pretty sure it’s average is 10-12, it ain’t great, but I do think 7 is way low.

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    Would have never guessed by your screen name, lol. I considered it, it’s main job is towing a 10k dump trailer and a 20k (registered at 10k) tilt deck, but even with a busy side business year, I’m only at 4K miles for the year, so with that limited use, the up charge is t worth it.

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    It’s absolutely insane. This is the most sane one I found as far as price/mileage. There was one I looked at, 19’ f250 XL, crew 8’ bed, 4K miles. They wanted $69k……lol, I told him give me $29k for my Chevy and I would buy it.

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    Haven’t driven it yet (they won’t let you drive it if not inspected, it’s like a weird new age dealership) but did see it and climb around under it, it’s super clean. Truck prices are insane right now. Yeah at 3-5k miles a year and the aluminum body panels it should last me forever, lol.

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    Yeah once I “reserved” it they took it down. $39800

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    I’ve always had GM trucks by default (hence the question), but I’m not really brand loyal. This one is equipped right, decent price and the low mileage make it for me. We have a 15’ F250 (super cab, short box) at work that I drive from time to time. No complaints.

    New (er) truck time, tell me what you think of this one.

    Forgot, Chevy is a 6.0l base. Having power windows will be luxurious…lol The Chevy has never failed to tow what I need towed.

    Do any GC owners fill the tires for weight?

    Mine are loaded with rim Gaurd. Well worth it, I can pick up and move a full bucket with no extra rear ballast. No issue with mowing 2 acres (no noticeable impact).

    Paying customer. The wall is the border. It is surface set, not a proper set wall, that is what the customer requested. I removed wall, graded, removed and hauled overburden/sod.

    Tilt Steering Won't Tilt

    Turn the knob/lever like you are tilting the wheel, pull straight out on the knob/lever, turn it back “down”. Repeat. This should loosen the bolt and allow the tilt to move.

    Craig's List

    Listed 2 bunk beds a few years ago on marketplace, at the beginning of my night shift. By 7 am they were both sold and picked up. Had 56 messages and at least 3 people I had to block, lol.

    Neighbors pole barn, it was very nice. The cheapness of the factory belts I think was the biggest factor.

    Burned up the factory belts! Lol. Extremely tall grass, wasn’t being patient and didn’t have the nose up enough.
