After 32 years with pick up trucks, I finally had to get a step. This one by Amp Research.
Picked it up Friday. So far, it’s been reliable!
First decent trip in my Mitzi. Just over 1,800km in the South Island - even did some gravel...
Not mine but kinda cool !!!.
Cool trucks that aren't yours, is down the road. > https://advrider.com/f/threads/cool-trucks.292207/
BFG AT’s were on offer, it would have been rude not to.
How do you carry the spare - or did you go with a smaller tire for #5?
Number 5 is chained up under the bed. Same size Bridgestone AT on a steelie.
Yeah, that's what I did too. I would like to get a swing-gate bumper mount, or some other way to put it in a more accessible location though.
A swing away is cool on a kitted out rig, but mine isn’t so I won’t
Also, we live in a city and tend to visit countries with iffy theft stats, so I’d rather keep it low key.
Haven’t posted mine in a while.
Have to store the cargo trailer for a few days.
Next up in ydarg’s garage.....replacing the charcoal canister, EVAP purge valve and PCV valve.
When the clock strikes 8 hours the air tools are put away and the hand tools come out.
At least that’s how the Cat guys used to work.
I only use air to remove lug nuts, everything else is done by hand. But I’m not workin on tractors and heavy equipment
Thanks for taking such good care of my future truck.
Air and cordless unless I cant use them, tools are cheaper and easier to replace than body parts.
To each their own I guess. The stuff I’m working on at work is very expensive and I have better feel than an impact or ratchet
I work on pretty expensive stuff to, just a lot bigger than you do and being in the midwest means battling rust-tight. The biggest thing for me is trying to cut down on repetitive motions or jarring force to hopeful protect my body some.
A good tech like you stated knows when to put the power tools away to avoid breaking stuff.
yeah, we don't have the rust here really at all.
vintage mercedes shit is super expensive. lower shock bolt for a 300sl roadster is $240 EACH!! for example.
