That's as simple as I can make it.  Sounds like fun to me.

Ammo box makes good tie-down box.  Two heaviest duty orange ones (dirtbike), a medium-duty red one (spare/extra), and a light-duty cam buckle for securing kayak in bed.

I dunno why picture's weird.  Photofucket.

Don't get too caught up in building a bunch of various "systems", you know? Just makes it inflexible, and at a certain point you spend more time dealing with the many boxes of many purposes and keeping them organized than you would just throwing stuff in the bed, etc.

Oh I know.  I had like three different boxes in my cart and then I thought...uhhhh, I really don't need this many boxes to carry the basics.  Just one good-sized box.  Once I get back outside and do some camping in the summer, it'll get fine-tuned and I can add/delete/modify as necessary.

Basically, I just want the tool box to be a general "grab n go" for trail cruising and camping, if im taking dirtbike with me somewhere, or weird emergencies (friend breaks down, dirt bike needs extraction from the woods, etc).  Doesn't need to live in the truck if it doesn't need to be there kinda thing (so I'll probably put the jumper cables back under the seat.

That would make it a compressee, not a compressor.

Fuck!  I bought the wrong thing. :lol:

I still haven't put Taco's old wheels/tires on Craigslist yet.  I'm gonna guess a couple of those tires are pretty flat.  I'll see how it presses on those today.

I think Taco has sprung an exhalation tube leak.

I'm thinking an O2 sensor is going (there was a code for it) and maybe that's where the hole has happened and that's why it's fucked?

It was a code for bank 2, which is the right side I think, and the leak is more noticeable on the right side.  Not sure if the code's for the fore or aft sensor though.  I'll have 2 checque.

I have seen that happen. The O2 sensor was not even in the hole - hanging by the wire.

I'm bored.  I think I'll do some things.

Diff fluid change, transfer case check/change, transmission check/change.

Who knows when those things were done last.  I think the PO told me he had recently done the rear diff, but that was 25k miles ago.

Fack.  One of the skid plate bolts is stripped/stuck in place.  Just spins.  We'll see if I can fanagle it outta the way to reach the plugs.

Oh, maybe I'll do spark plugs, too.  Maybe that's why my O2 sensor went. :lol:

I did brake fluid when I did the brakes back in the fall.  It's nice and clean meow.

I'll have to add coolant to my list come spring.

They're really hot when you hook their butts up to a propane tank or fill them with kerosene and light them on fire.  I thought this was common knowledge.

Or just get a creeper so you're not actually on the cold concrete. Plus then you can creep.
