It had no hooks or tow points that I could find. So I looped an old strap (thanks, Dro) around the front axle. The lower control arms were shinny new. What diesel is in there?

I am unaware if there are any diesel LLVs in service...? I know there have been discussions about the fleet for quite awhile. Thanks again for the assist...

Sure sounded like a diesel the few seconds it was on. Guess its bottom end needs a rebuild. I told the driver to keep the engine off. Didn't want my strap cut or get caught up in the harmonic balancer. So he proceeds to start it so he could put the PRNDL into N.

At work on a Sunday but at least some pretty big flakes are coming down! Maybe it'll put some white lipstick on all these dirty snowbanks we still have.

Haha. I should have captured some of my parking jobs around here when the snow banks were really bad. I had to get creative a couple times.

Gratuitous icy/windy Plum Island shot. Took a quick ride out this afternoon as I haven't been out there all winter.

^^ Nice pictures Peter ^^
At first I thought you had some strange pole on the front bumper until I blew it up and realized it was your lamppost.
Let me know if you ever sell that roofrack---ARB, right?

Thx Jeff - ARB just installed a few months ago. Got the mesh floor and definitely feels solid when I stand on top. I've got an old Yakima basket, but that just doesn't compare to the ARB. I'd never try to stand on the Yakima, but it still has some utility.
