I whipped up some quick stake sides for wood at Brett’s the other day. Upgraded them.

Wood and compost/topsoil. Probably brush and branches from tree trimming next week, not that that really needs sides. Sand and gravel as needed for beach and driveway.

All things that want it to dump :)

I need a 40s cab on a 4x4 chassis with dump bed and plow. The year round fun machine. After the Chevy breaks in half.

If it fits it ships. Let’s go get fuel oil from the back side of a rando’s house!

That picture just made me think of the Jeff foxworthy bit how you know your a redneck if you have a working TV on top of a non working TV
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...

Need to move the spare tire to be able to get a couple feet closer and shorten it up for campus parking.

Intermittent problem has become more frequent. I think voltage regulator is failing in a weird way. For a minute or five a couple times per hour, all electricals pulse. I had my voltmeter-equipped usb charger in place today and when it’s good I see 14.6-14.7v. When it’s pulsing at maybe 5-8Hz, I see a min/max of 13.7 to 15.1.

I expect the regulator is in the PCM. truck is on its third alternator that I know of, year or two old. Could be poor response and lag in alt? Or bad pcm regulator?

Need to decide between throwing alternator at it or setting up an external regulator, I think. It’s irregular enough that it would be hard to sketch with a scan tool unless it was on all the time. The CTS insight sees a steady 13.0v at all times. I don’t know if it’s measuring, or polling ECU.

You had Lucas electronics on the trailer
I’m sure that had something to do with it...

Try it again once disconnected...

how about a wire brush to the battery contacts and check chassis grounds before we get all nick and excel on this
