01 May 2010 - 10:30 AMI did make a thread about this..... Oops http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index...howtopic=181811
30 April 2010 - 07:38 AMYeah, All I say is be careful, and smart about what you do. It won't prevent all that could happen, but, being aware is the biggest part of it.
29 April 2010 - 09:30 AMYeah, the job thing is a bear. We've got transients (homeless) in places that never had homeless people before. Small towns that are usually, well, typical small towns, are now finding people trying to pitch tents in city parks, sleeping under bridges, parking trailers in walmart, all kinda crap. I hope this pulls through soon. Supposedly recession is on the rebound and "Getting better", but..... Go ahead and tell that to the folks in foreclosure, jobless, homeless... Etc.
I actually, even tho I mostly hate my job, feel lucky to have it. It's paying my bills, bought me a house, and, I have no room to complain really. If I had a little more to do so, I'd try helping some of these folks out. It's sad seeing homeless people who shouldn't be homeless. You know the type I mean.... Those who're there because of some choise they made. Not because they got a pink slip and couldn't find a job scooping dog crap because there were 300 other applicants (Example taken from a Seattle news story).
Anyhow, I've been there too. I was homeless for a while myself. But, IDK. It's just tough all around. I sure hope things turn around, ya know.
29 April 2010 - 09:04 AMI have my happy place. I'm always going off to the mountains and fishing, even when I'm stuck at work in real life, I've always got my mind to fill with some sort of BS. And, that does the trick. I'll "Play" a paintball game in my mind, or create my favorite, perfect, fishing hole, or any other such thing. Barring that, getting a smile from some cutie or going over to "save" her from some perv bum also makes my day better. I had one girl, while I was at work, that was being bothered by some funky old dude who was trying, apparently, to go home with her. I walked up and claimed to be her boyfriend and told him to beat it. It worked, and she thanked me, and I went about my business. The rest of the day beforehand had been fairly busy with general BS and I had been in a fairly bad mood until I got the opportunity to help this girl out. It made me smile to see her smile and then laugh about it.
It's all small things. My boy for example, little dude's always doing something that cracks me up. So, I'll think through those too.
29 April 2010 - 08:55 AMAh, ok. Got ya.
Some other thoughts about my truck are...
Second gas tank, on board air compressor, spare or second battery.
I'd like to mold the fenders to flare out over the new meats, I don't like the obviously plastic type that comes stock.
And inside I'd like to get rid of the stock 60/40 seats and swap em for captains type seats. Re-do interior lining and carpet, and see if I can get a custom dash made. The rest will be a new console with a hidden lockbox to put my Glock when I should be leaving it in the truck (like at the courthouse) and have it set up to put the CB and such.
Like I said, I'm very new at all of this, but I know what I want this thing to do for me. Someone once mentioned I ought to just buy a truck to suit my needs, and since I own this puppy outright, and it fits my size (I'm not a big fellow at 5'6) I honestly don't see why I shouldn't just simply build the truck to be what I want.
My use for it is for hunting, work, running around town, and general redneck fun. I don't do alot a bogging, tho I'm not opposed to that, and have never rock climbed. However, it's nice to go back down those old logging roads that no ones been down in 15 years, which is my intent for prerunners actually, to push brush down under me.
I'm really wanting to drop a 302 in there. And I think once done it'll be a heck of a truck. A little paint and body work and it'll be awsomeness. I think it's gonna take a couple years to finish, as you know things need to be saved up for for most of us anyhow.
Other issue here is I have basically no tools. I've considered just taking it in to have it all done. Certainly will be the case for the bodywork and paint. Might be able to get away with doing some of the simple stuff on my own however. When it comes to Lifts, now, I see you mentioned a difference between the rear and front? And how tough is it to change the front end for solid axles?
