Awww, man, I miss those kinds of views. Great work on the truck! That twin beam front suspension is such a weird setup, like half IFS, half solid axle.

Very nice! I can't speak to the hybrid, but I've been very happy with our 7th gen Accord. It's starting to show some wear now that it's getting older, but in the 7 years I've owned it, I've only...

I've always liked his stuff. I really like his melancholy version of Cheap Trick's "I want you to want me". His Folsom Prison Blues/Pinball Wizard medley is pretty cool, too.

My advice would be to use cunifer line (copper/nickel). It's as resistant to corrosion as stainless, bends easily by hand, and flares easily. You can get it from Fedhill (google er').

Thanks guys!

I ended up running CAT5e cable. Gigabit is plenty of bandwidth for what I'm doing. I also have a feed up to the attic, where I have a PoE switch to power my IP security cameras.

That 1/4 mile time is pretty good! Beats out my 6.0L LS swapped 88' crewcab by about .6 seconds (granted, that truck weighs 5600 lbs with me in it, but you're rocking a baby turbo 2.7L vs a 6.0L!).
