True that. My router crapped out yesterday and today I had to decide which Apple store I was going to walk to to pick up a new one. NYC problems...

You mean there are places with only one Apple store? OMG ... we should start a charity to help those poor unfortunates ...

Oh yeah ... fix the oil cooler lines ... although apparently the 97 lines are better than the 93/94/95 setup there is a still a huge car-b-q risk!

Boost wheels are contagious here in NY. In my opinion, it gives the truck character. That urban aggressive jungle look. Like you ready to tackle that big pot hole. Steel wheels with big tyres looks good as well.

I rest my case as well.... I would much rather shoot 200+ clays at my house with my friends and have to drive 15 mins to an Apple Store than brag about how there are two are within walking distance.
Different strokes for different folks.

Furthermore:
Freestyles rule, boosts drool.

You guys and your "garden" tractors... Do you play songs like "she thinks my tractors sexy" or "take a ride in my big green tractor" when you ride them?


You should see Dan driving his series 1 through NYC! Anyways enjoy your new tractor.

I remove them when I go offroading- which is why my defender has body damage as well. In case you(and the boost club) were wondering.

A good challenge might be to have the "boost guys" go off road and have the southerners drive the five boroughs during rush hour.

Bring it! I grew up in Boston. I'm a dislocated Yankee south of the mason Dixon line!

I apologize for the total thread derailment...

Hence the reason I have Freestyles.

Anyways, congrats Andrew. I'm in Westchester as well. Let me know if you need any advice or whatnot. Keep the truck the way it is for now and drive it. Although, do yourself a favor and change out the chrome lugs on your wheels for the steel wheel variety. Its a safety thing. I'm slowly getting to the stuff I've wanted to do to the truck since I got mine, so take your time. I've also got a 97 SW. Nothing like driving a shit Chelsea tractor.

Sounds fun.
I, too, lived and drove downtown Boston for 5 years.
Sometimes it was like offroading with the massive Massachoosetts potholes and the Big Dig that was going on at the time.


Andrew/OP, how much did you pay the neighbor for your Coniston green 90?
Did you get a good deal?
Looks like a decent truck.

Welcome Andrew! Btw, don't listen to some of these crazy, dislocated Red Sox fans. They're in last place...

And you definitely need to be ready for that..... Had to replace a blow tire from one of those said potholes on a non-LR in the past month.... Blew on the way to JFK (about 1 mile from the terminal, can still picture the trench across the highway.....). Should have taken an LR to go to jungle NYC!
