Easy to use. EAsier to install on a warm day.

Yesterday was 36, today is 35, tomorrow the same and basically like that until mid march. Variations in humidity make it feel hotter.

Temp in ur speak is like 97-100 I think.

Thats dammed hot! It was -19F when I left my parents house Saturday late morning. It's been in the mid to low 30s (F) at my place. We are different sides of the globe though.

I love the cold and snow, but I've never had to live in for long periods of time. I bet its a different story if you had to.

I was the manager for the main warehouse of a carpet company for a few years back in the 1990's. I discovered you could use closed-cell carpet padding as a very good soundproofing for vehicles. It usually comes in white, and can be painted.

'Regular' carpet padding is spongy and water will go right into it. 'Waterproof' or closed cell padding has a smooth finish to it both sides, and is easy to glue into place. It is also washable. I used this stuff underneath the carpet on a Toyota motor home to quiet down the road noise. If you use it under car carpet, it will not allow any liquid to penetrate past it onto the metal.

Just go into any carpet company that stocks their pad right there and buy it off the roll. Say you need some 'white waterproof carpet pad' and they will know what you mean. Comes in a few thicknesses, from 3/8 inch to 3/4 inch. The 3/8 or 1/2 will do just fine. Three quarter is a bit too thick. Always apply more than you need and trim off the edges to fit. If you cut it at a steep angle on the edges, the center part will not show.

Walked outside this morning and started the truck like normal. When i came back outside, i noticed the exhaust condensate was floating around everywhere under the rear of the truck and not coming out the exhaust pipe.

Stupid pipe broke off at the muffler. My exhaust guy cut the bad section out and welded in a two inch spacer. Problem solved cheap as hell. 40 bucks. He also cut the old air pipe off at the cat and welded it shut. That is one less remnant of the defunct pollution control crap gone.

I also changed the oil (used the BOGO castrol high mileage 5w30 from dollar general) and used a wix filter. And i changed the dead oil pressure switch yet again. These things are crap. Thank god they are under 5 bucks from rockauto. In the almost 8 years of owning this truck, i bet that damn pressure switch has been changed 4 times.

Built a new tailgate for the QDM21. Also added an ammo can tool box on the side. AND installed 'new to me' Clarion Am/Fm CD player to replace the stock am/fm radio from Japan. The Japan radio had a very small frequency band from 88 to 90 so It only got a couple stations here in the USA.
Still waitin on 6x9 speakers for behind the rear seat and new 4" door speakers.
