    I finally finished this tensioner pulley job. As a novice to this, I'm glad it's over with but I'm happy that I got it done. No more squeaky rides.

    Well I struck out at every single Auto Parts store. I was looking for the correct hose size for this little guy so I can run the tube up and it's not open top anymore and then I was going to put a breather pod filter on it. However nobody had the right hose size so if anybody knows off the top their head what the right hose size and what inappropriate breather filter would be please let me know.0309242032.jpg 0309242032.jpg

    If the hose runs a tad too small you can heat it in boiling water to make it more pliable to squeeze onto the fitting.

    Here's what the first gen offroad kit uses. Looks like 1/4" or 6mm heater hose.

    It's a weird phenomenon how our perception of time changes. You've heard older people talk about it, and us older folks here get it.
    I've wondered why that is, like are we just going through the motions and not as aware, and then check in to see another month is gone?
    In the last 4-5 years the vision is slipping, body starting to show some wear and tare, and some memory gear slippage as well.
    I used to make fun of the older guys @ work... now I AM that guy :rofl:

    if it's a lifetime warranty, they basically last for life?

    That's why it's hard for me to hate on harbor freight. I'll go in there w/o shame. Shits cheap and for the most part gets the job done and if I break it I get a new one. And there's almost ALWAYS a coupon for something on their app.


    "novice" has a lift. I hate you.....

    It kinda bugs me how perverted "Lifetime warranty" has become due to offshoring of everything.

    It once meant, "The quality is so good, we'll guarantee it for life". It was highly unlikely the product would die, but if it did, you didn't need to prove anything, you march it back in for them to check it out and they give you a replacement if it wasn't egregiously obvious you did something to kill it. Even if you did, some places would still replace it for not making the product bulletproof enough.

    Nowadays "life" means "lifetime of the product, which is an arbitrary value we decide", and they don't give a damn about quality, "we know it's going to fail sooner or later because we hire slave labor to do a shitjob making the product, but don't worry, when it inevitably fails within the next couple of years, we'll replace it, if you're the kind of weirdo who actually saves proof of purchase and doesn't mind going through our pre-defined dance in order to get your part!"

    The former is the American way.
    The latter is capitalistic bullshit. :poking:

    I'd really like to see American manufacturing come back to its former glory. I really wish folks were more-OK with spending a little more money for American-made goods.

    Don't forget that it's sometimes void if you don't register the product ahead of time.

    Yeah, I saw that damage when I stumbled on his add for selling his topper.
    And I faintly remember several accident photos, plowing over a sign or something?
    Think that was Tundra2.

    Thankfully I wasn’t driving, I was on the phone with my sister and I went silent with her after my partner swerved around one, and then another was just standing in the road about 20 yards further down. I saw the brown in its eyes as it’s nose kissed the mirror

    1 deer, probably down to 25-30 at impact, couldnt swerve because some jackass was speedmatching me. Deer bounced off the bumper & door, then ran back into the woods. No blood anywhere. Had to use a ratchet strap to pull the bumper off the tire.

    I have all the parts in a labeled box and bins for this including 3x ANL Littlefuse trays to distribute aux power and blue sea relay. Only the one aux battery in the ‘16 for now. Someday I hope to get to it.

    @shifty` the ‘Mercian way is my general concept for FBC, but the problem that I’m realizing is all the communication / questions really add up. So if I’m to properly account for that, pricing becomes insane. It’s already more than double the cost of stuff produced overseas. So, right now, I’m basically a non profit. Which takes time away from family and that’s seemingly more and more counterproductive to my life goals.

    I might shelve the whole thing at EOY. Then I’d have time for my own work. On the one hand I don’t want to quit now, after paving the way and working through the major kinks. On the other hand, taxes and accounting fees eat up 15% or so, expenses are 60+% so my forced payroll is about 25% and below minimum wage.
