They’re “super center Walmart sized” compared to farm and fleet or TSC

One shop stop. Auto parts, hunting gears, fishing, licenses for fishing or guns, clothes, grocery, farm supplies, gas station, etc.

I'm real picky on dimensions, and the HF stuff really isn't "cheap"
The 42" Milwaukee that I think is a really perfect size is on sale for the same price as a smaller, shallower HF box.

If your not in too hurry to find a box iirc Hf is releasing the Icon brand of boxes Sept 30, reviews I've seen are pretty good so far

damn that's a good find. wouldn't be far out of the way at all.

I was just conversing on Messenger with a couple of the boys (read: smike was berating me for poor priorities) how I'm unlikely to be able to go to Crandon due to work responsibilities.  I booked a summer recap for Friday morning. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if there's just breakfast pizza and no me.

crosspost from fb

Need some coil spring sanity check. I need a lighter spring in the rear. It's been marginal, limit strapped to about 1/2" preload, and without the spare hanging all the way off the back now, I need to lose about 2" of shaft on top of that. I'm showing about 9.5" on a 14 and want to get closer to 7-7.5. Shocks on the axle and close enough to 1:1 as not to matter.
14x175 (@10-7/8") over 16x225 (@13.5") now, that's combined rate of about 97#. Spare isn't on and will add about 60# centered over the springs.
A friend has some springs I could swap right on, but slightly odd lengths.
could do a 14x150 over 18x200, that's a little softer all around at 86# with similar progressiveness and almost certainly solves preload fully.
Corner weight math
(16[free height]-13.5[compressed height])*225[rate]/6.5[desired squat]
tells me my target overall rate is (varying inputs between compressed height of 13.25-13.5 and squat of 6.5-7) 80-95#. Longer spring gets me preloaded right. I have about 3" of thread above the spring now.
