Indeed!

If that doesn't work, there's an extra clip of .45 handy too!

Well for the last 15 months I have been driving around on the original spare tire and the other three weren't much better so yesterday I bought these ones used from a friend and had them installed. 255 x 85 R16's. BF Goodrich Mud Terrain's.

Very productive weekend....

Got all of the rear trim-that's what she said-reinstalled after having new headliner installed, seat anchors and door trim powdercoated, new stainless bolts, nuts, screws, washers, etc. for aforementioned, (some were a bitch) new seals for back door, reaffixed rear door stop lamp, a few new nut/threadserts here and there..blah, blah, blah...

Just generally had a great time listening to my man Jimmy, sipping cocktails and getting the as of yet unnamed 90 back to snuff...

Yes! You never know when you may have to enlist some street justice, as we said in the PD way back when.

I think the bottle of VOSS drinking water kind of dilutes the tough guy image of the handgun magazine

I'm having a hard time bleeding the fuel system. I found some info from other forums about bleeding the fuel lines. I'll give it another try today.

I've done this, very painless on the 5. Bravo though, $100 vs $250 at the apple store is a good investment

I had to do that a few times this winter, what worked best for me was open the lines and continuously crank the engine for a while. The little hand lever on the 2.5 takes forever and doesn't always catch. Having had to do it a few times on my 2.5 n/a I've become pretty good at it haha

the other day I noticed that both bulbs for my license plate were out. the bulbs were hard to get locally so I said screw this, and ordered LEDs from amazon for $10 (for 10 LED bulbs). not bad.
