    Got my tire break down hammer in. I get to test it this week and see if it was worth the $50 on Amazon....

    If it doesnt then the stanley 36" crowbar from Home depot is made as a pressure bar for breaking down tires. it wedges under one side of the wheel great while applying pressure to the opposite side of the tire when you hit it it breaks both sides at once.

    I just started using it. It broke the bead on 8 LMTV combat wheels on the first hit on both sides. I was like yeah something isn't right till i actually looked at what the bar was forcing on.

    Now this is a socket:

    Bought my supply of pellet fuel for the winter. It only took me 2 hours to fetch them and unload them into my garage when it normally takes at least 4 trips through the winter in my Outback. This was a big convenience and time saver.

    It's a trick threading that truck through downtown Annapolis traffic. Much respect to 18-wheelers who make regular deliveries to all the shops in cities. Since the truck is still relatively new to me, I made sure to perform a careful pre-trip inspection before I headed out, especially the brakes.

    And then you have to admire those drivers backing those rigs into alleys and the like:

    Thank you for the praise, Ajax MD and Ahab. It can get pretty challenging at times, what with where we have to go, let alone back up a circus that is normally around 73 feet long. Small, OLD places like you find on the Northern East coast are chock full of those places! (Oh, so <many> choice words for the "original" old cities over there........... NYC, Philly, et al.)

    I've always been careful to give ample room in front of semis when passing and getting in front of them but yesterday I did get a small taste of how stupidly passenger car drivers interact with large trucks. It was eye-opening.

    Replaced pinion seal that started leaking a few years ago. I think I know why it was leaking lol. Thanks to those that have done write up's on the repair, made it an easy job learning from others experience!
    I have to do this same job tomorrow. What is the torque values for the 2 1/4" nut and all the smaller bolts?

    Bought a truck from Georgia, had someone haul it up to Fort Lee NJ, then I drove it home.

    Much thanks to Luke Deuce, helping me through the process!!
