    My Predator was heavy. Pretty sure my Marin Muirwoods 29er is lighter.

    Is there a decent place to ride around you? I got pretty lucky with a skatepark about 5 minutes away. Out in the country, kinda in the middle of nowhere. Pretty good size and it's always dead.

    No where special. I have several little parks around my place in Mounds View. I wouldn't mind going downtown, but then there is the whole gangbanger situation that I don't want to come across.

    Stephen here, I'll take the spot of the "ph." Here's a picture of my Robinson. Man, I used to send this thing of some big jumps back in the day. My mom lived in Champlin, and in some of the wooded areas, there were some huge dirt jumps. Like 4-6 footers. Never broke any bones, but crash landed on that bike too many times to count. Holy crap this thing is light, has to be less than 20lbs!

    Not much for pictures but just got a deal on inner/outer rockers and cab corners for the f350. Tentatively planning a welding weekend before fall to shorten the dune buggy pan, install fastback patch panels/cuts and f350 patch panels. Also may consider taking some welding class refresher

    Upgraded to an 8 Passenger vehicle.
    Fun fact: if you can't afford a suburban, the 2011-2017 Honda Odyssey can safely fit 5 car seats in almost any configuration and we've still got our cargo space. Pretty sure no other minivan can boast that.

    What is a power boost full hybrid? Is that opposed to a half hybrid? 1/4? I’m curious...

    And how does it get "great gas mileage" if it's power boosting and not eco boosting?!

    Set your cam phasers to stun?

    Is it like the Porsche Taycan 'Turbo'?

    You know, all marketing because it doesn't actually have a turbocharger...

    It's a 3.5L twin turbo, AKA Eco-Boost with a hybrid system.

    Picked up a 2016 Mercedes AMG C63s. Quite the luxury upgrade from the 2004 WRX.

    I see you like to get progressively more unreliable too. #yolo

    Got me self one of those Henry rifles!
    It's only the 22LR because I want to start getting my young boys into shooting. Maybe some day we'll upgrade to the 45.

    I'd like to get it on a dyno, but I think most people see around 470whp. The 4.0L TT is a beast, it pulls like a freight train and sounds incredible. I thought the different modes would be gimmicky, but they are actually amazing. Comfort mode is mild, quiet, and plush. Sport+ or Race is loud, aggressive, and stiff. I think the only thing I'll do to it is put better tires on.

    Lol, exactly. The last time it was in for service they "lost the center cap". So a new one is on order.

    Bought coolant, so much coolant. I've had enough people ask me "how much to get it running before I buy it" i decided to slap $10k on it and tell them it will be drivable but i recommend towing...

    5 gallons literally fits in the radiator and lower hose out of the 7.75 Gallon capacity!

    gotta pickup a pair of batteries and a new positive cable and I should be able to start it up again and start sorting out the 40 gallon side tanks, glow plugs, etc. neighbor might have an old peterbilt stack with shield he'd give me so this thing is going to be gawdy
