  1. Hard Hit indeed. Driver had to feel that. Hope you get more than scrap price out of the junker.
  2. Every club is our enemy, just accept it and move on. They promise service to someone and they don't even own a single truck! NSD wastes my time weekly. Keep calling for a prices on jobs and then never call back. The last few have been 200+mile rental car swaps in the middle of the night. It isn't going to be cheap folks! Can't say how they are for payment.
  3. Looks like the stout frame saved this wobbly box. Nice Work.
  4. ya, SCREW using a tow eye for recovery work... they snap off if using them at an angle. Get yourself a couple 3 ft and/or 6ft green endless loops to wrap thru the wheels or control arms instead. I get around 20 recoveries out of each strap and factor the cost into the rate.
  5. I would return it to them so they can have a chance to fix their mistakes.
  6. I love that you are OCD about your trucks appearance like I am. Just finished my HPL attachment and can't wait for the first bike of the season.
  7. The pink 16 ton(?) doesn't look beat up in the video. Wonder if brakes were really the issue or a driver issue.
  8. ...Most of us don't know what we are doing tomorrow much less 5 months out. Will write it down on the calendar.
  9. I use vacuum caps from the auto part store. ...got to find an older employee who know what a carburetor is. Ha
  10. What a pain in the butt job.
  11. TSperformance 6 position Worked fine on a 2003 at f550 with a 7.3. Truck is gone now so I can't help with the part #. My Hydra in my 99 is on a 350 and high idle is mainly used to jump start big bastards.
  12. I gave up on my hunt for one and chose a TS performance 6 position switch. High idle is all i really needed. Hydra also makes one.
  13. Here Expired WM, School of working everyday in the trenches.
  14. Is this a integrated renegade unit or the separate rebel unit ?
  15. Renegade Stiff legs, These are an option that Twin Cities Wrecker does. Notice how far forward these are compared to the factory ones which look like a toddler just slapped them on the tail.
  16. The time has come to finally purchase a sat based phone or messenger. Do you have one? Looking at a Garmin inreach unit right now but could be swayed to another brand. Keep going out of cell service areas doing 4x4 recoveries and it would be nice to check in every once in a while to keep the boss lady happy.
  17. Gas is Cheap right now Diesel Rig: F650 with a cummins/allison combo Gas Rig: Chevy/GMC with the 8.1 or F550 with V10 (this old version is fine, the new one is out of you price range is the one with issues) Decks: You need at least a 19.5', most are 21' Alum vs Steel Depends on your areas rust situation. When buying a used aluminum deck, look at where the beams meet the bed locks to make sure the ends are not cracked off.
  18. Thats some nice yard art right there.
  19. 7" of snow in 24hrs here Looks like you chose the hard direction to winch it out.
