  1. I've had a Schumacher for a long time. Still works great! Worked on a Rincon for a friend. Wouldn't start due to low voltage and the winch wouldn't retract. Found the positive cable corroded and broken, battery was at 9 volts, and the winch switch also had corrosion in it. Replaced the battery cable, battery, and replaced the switch and winch relay box. Found out the cable was no longer being sold new so I picked up a used one on Ebay.
  2. This reminds me I need to put the trickle charger on. Haven't started it since Jan 2.

  5. Welcome!! Good group here for info!
  6. Every time we kill a nice buck, it has a story. This year we had football Saturday morning as it has been for the last few years. I stay focused on when rifle season come in here. I have a crossbow and a blackpowder but they are not my go to's. A buddy called me to see if I would help him go through his dad's '85 K10 ( bought new) that he is gonna sign over to him. Talking he asked if we were hunting this evening since it was youth day. Told him I didn't know it was so we sure were now. That tropical storm had came through earlier so we had an idea the deer would he moving that evening. We get in the box stand about 330pm. Had a fawn come running out from behind the stand and run around for 30 minutes. About 645 a few does came out with a scrub buck. Not long after that 2 bucks came out in the back field about 750 yds away. I didn't think they would come out this way so I didn't pay much attention to them. Another shooter buck came out in a field beside us but he had no interest in the does. At 710pm the does were locked in on something and then we saw them the 2 bucks 750yds away came to us. Told my son to wait till the big buck got close enough. 713pm it was over. Buck dropped in his tracks. He got reaaaaaaaaal lucky. Deployed a head shot.... but was aiming behind the shoulder. He had buck fever and couldn't keep it steady lol. Savage .243 with Corelokts. 180 yds. 16" inside 17 1/4 outside. 8 pointer. Last picture I took through my binoculars with my phone. Between the swing and yellow bush you can make out the horns sticking up from the beans if you can zoom in.
  7. BCS, I've been there before but no where as bad as that. Hope it heals up well for you.
  8. @_Wilson_™ @Fishfiles ... man yall just kicked me down..... lol The truck is lowered 2" spindles in the front and the ZQ8 suspension so it is 1.5" lower from the factory off the bat. Rear leaf springs are 3 leafs which lowers it factory but it has 4" blocks and the previous owner removed the 2nd leaf which ... yes gave the truck the carolnia squat. I had to add air shocks and bump stops back to the truck to even be able to drive it. It was horrible. I am going back with 3" blocks and the correct leaf springs. Still lots to do to this truck. I don't know why I am drawn to clapped out projects......
  9. @_Wilson_™ I despise anything plumbing related. My dad's dad was a plumber. I'm still working on my S10. About to rebuild the rear suspension. Grabbed another set of leaf springs and replaced the bushings. Bought new hangers, solid aluminum lowering blocks, angle plates, and set back plates. Hope to get on this this week.
  10. Happy Fathers day!! Saw all the dads at the store last night buying what they were gonna cook themselves last night!!
  11. Youngest brought home a few carrot sprouts they grew in class. We planted them in a big pot this weekend. If all goes will, we spent $12 on a pot to grow 4 carrots lol Cucumbers are growing and squash and getting big. Potatoes have till the end of the month to hit 90 days.

    Finally had a day of sunlight after about 2 weeks of clouds and rain.
  14. @LedFTed it's 128/8x now. I was on Telmisartan for a year with no good results. Now on Edarbyclor . It got my BP down and with a Vitiamin D increase( mine was at a 22 count) I feel better overall.
