Are you talking infrared thermometer? I have one, if my truck gets released from Customs by then. I'll PM my phone number and we can sort the transportation sit-choo-ation.

I think Tony and I are on track for tomorrow, so we'll see you guys there.

If anyone has any of the following that they could bring tomorrow so that I don't have to wait on parts, let me know. I may have to write you a check though as my ATM card is in the mail.

-Infrared Thermometer - borrow real quick.
-Potentially a thermostat.
-Extra Winch line for a Warn XD 9000i? Long shot I know

I have a few thousand feet of 5/16" 7x19 galvanized air craft cable at work... It meets Fed Spec RRC271D.


We can install it at my house. I have the crimps to put thimbles on.

------ Follow up post added June 10th, 2011 10:51 AM ------

I have some errands to run in the morning. Want me to pick one of these up for you...

Thanks

there are some different ones depending on when they open. I found one the other day that was 74C or something like that. opened super early. I think it was for a Jag or Mini but fit our trucks too. I want to try it out if I can remember where i saw it.

We're here. Sweet view. Defender got nervous and the alternator died on the way here, but we made it.

F you. Never saw the sign or anything. Drove up and down JFK Blvd. Went all the way down to where BP and some dinner, hung a Uturn driving over some "compact parking only" lot (S3 109) at the dinner on the corner. Went the other way past the Hess station, then back to the Hess to fill up. And twice drove down to and along the waterfront area. Never saw another rover, except for the range rovers. Oh well at least I tested out the transfer case and new muffler lol.

We were wondering what happened to you! You should have taken down one of our numbers or something. I don't recall the exact address, but it is located on the East side of JFK Blvd East at the intersection of JFK and Pershing Road, between 47th and 48th Streets.
