re: Official Jeep Enthusiasts Thread - TU Rob
I've owned a YJ and my current TJ. And while the TJ still rides like a Jeep it isn't as rough as my old YJ was. Either with a 4.0 and a manual will last a long time. ...

re: If you could change/create a rule for CFB. - TU Rob
Keep the first OT as is, but move each extra period back 10 yards. It may actually come down to field goals instead of forcing each team to go for 2. ...

re: What should I expect to pay for a new 3-ton AC unit - TU Rob
Thankfully the guy that came out yesterday got my Lennox running again. I found a blown capacitor and put a new one on it Monday. There was a smaller, black plastic can next to it. It looked like a smaller capacitor, but all of the ones I've ever seen were metal casings. He confirmed that's what...

re: Question for teachers re: Social Media/Facebook. - TU Rob
None of my kids teachers care. That's what meet the teacher and end of year parties bring these days. This year the teacher did say they have a policy about not being connected to parents in social media. They want all communication between parents and teachers to be face to face, phone, or email. ...

re: When will we see the end of Coaxial cable. - TU Rob
[quote]I believe older coax is different from newer satellite/cable company coax used today. RJ-59 or something like that.[/quote] The newer stuff is RG6. I think the main differences between that and RG59 are a thicker wire inside, more insulation, and more shielding. ...

re: When will we see the end of Coaxial cable. - TU Rob
[quote]yea but there has to be a better cable out there that should be used right?[/quote] Not for getting a TV signal. I remember several years back all the cable companies, BluRay players, etc were touting HDMI connections. Which when you are dealing with a digital signal, that is the best th...

re: Generator questions - TU Rob
My grandmother was partially paralyzed so they had a home back-up unit put in. I think it was Natural Gas and clicked on automatically when there was an outage. They didn't have a huge one, and didn't hook it up to the fuse box for power, but they ran extension cords from it to the few things she ...

[quote]Just put the app on your phone and get a Bluetooth speaker[/quote] That's what I would do these days. About 10-12 years ago I had a unit in my truck that you could dock in there or take with you. It had a little speaker in it, but also a home dock with a built in speaker. I had it at my...

re: Florida fans, question...I need to get a nice fray to some jorts on short notice - TU Rob
More important than the fray is the skoal ring in the right back pocket. Which leads me to think that you need tobacco juice on the end to speed up the fray. Long cut straight will git r done. ...

re: Official Jeep Enthusiasts Thread - TU Rob
Bestop for sure but do a lot of googling for prices. I have a TJ and bought the TrekTop which is the frameless version and uses the roll bars in the back for support. It also has the fastback look which I like and see on many of the JK and JKU Jeeps. I forget the actual prices but the usual places l...

re: Someone struck by ricochet bullet at Precision - TU Rob
Had that happen to a friend of mine here in Birmingham. We were shooting falling steel plates and they were set up on sawhorses with a 2x4 between them. There was a piece of steel across the 2x4 and I guess it hit that instead of the plates and ricocheted back. Didn't hit any of us but stuck into a ...

re: What should I expect to pay for a new 3-ton AC unit - TU Rob
[quote]Really. Bet he sells a lot of those[/quote] Yeah, I think this guy quoted me for a 14 seer 5 ton, using existing ducts, and it was going to be around 5 figures. The guy I have coming out today will probably be half of that. Any advice y'all can give me on brands? I've heard both sides...

re: What should I expect to pay for a new 3-ton AC unit - TU Rob
Thanks. I was quoted 9500 for a 14 seer and that's just using existing ducts. They're in good shape. Thought it was a ripoff and apparently it is. ...

re: What should I expect to pay for a new 3-ton AC unit - TU Rob
What about a 5 ton unit without replacing duct work? The guy that came out today didn't even buy me dinner and tried to bend me over. But he was with a company. I've got some friends giving me names to get a few more quotes. ...

re: SEC Baseball Tournament in Hoover is an Atrocity - 2017 edition - TU Rob
The parking issue could be easily handled in downtown Birmingham. There are tons of decks and shuttles could be run from all of them. I park in a deck on 18th and 5th north. The top 4-6 floors are empty most days. Yeah it isn't your RV parking, but you could throw 1,000 cars in that deck alone a...

[quote]you don't store whiskey on its side[/quote] And please don't put whiskey in the freezer. I'm not sure why but my mother in law and her new husband store all their liquor in the freezer. That is fine with vodka but every time I go over and he offers me a drink he pulls the bourbon from the ...

re: What's your one bottle of booze thats somehow still around - TU Rob
I have a bottle of cheap amaretto that I think is from college. I graduated in 2004. Back then my wife was trying different things and liked an amaretto sour. I also have a bottle of blue curaçao that's at least 10 years old. Every now and then she will get on a vodka kick so I'll buy some cheap vod...

re: Should I use finishing wax after stain/poly on an outdoor table? - TU Rob
[quote]It is an outdoor deck stain/poly combo.[/quote] You should be good then. Is it one of those 7 or 10 year guarantee products? All of them will fade in the sun, but they do a great job of protecting the wood. I applied mine to the railings and posts with a stain sponge, and did 2 coats. ...
