    I’m preloaded to head for atlanta in the morning, most likely going to be marble rock afterwards heading back tomorrow afternoon. @motocross25 ive never listened to any of those podcasts, I read the @ping article sometimes on vital but I’m not always a fan of his delivery. Also, vacation was good, went by quickly which is always exhausting.

    I’m not a big fan of Langston myself. He’s always interrupting and making every story about “something similar that happened to him”. When it was not even close to even the same thing. But the guests are cool I like hearing about how things used to be and behind the scenes type stuff.

    Sitting in mobile tonight with my favorite.....scrap. Crazy weather, you’d swear a hurricane is blowing in, pretty wicked wind and rain, made for quite the sunset though. Safe travels to everyone, hope y’all are staying busy. 82840179-71D5-4765-B015-AFBCE3DE6FBC.jpeg

    Quiet in here lately, where’s the regulars at? @motocross25 hows the Midwest dump life treating you? I’m at the shop again trying to get this alignment figured out, was a rough go of it last week fighting that pull. @Arctic_fox hopefully you’re getting the kinks worked out in the new operation. Safe travels.

    @Trashtrucker1707 I feel your pain on the shop issues. I am getting the mandoor installed on my trailer over the next day or so and my truck is in getting the failed nox sensors swapped and the other sensors are getting function tested to ensure it wasnt something else that made them fail. Real tired of random stop engine lights.

    Eventually i am going to find the #### gremlin that is living in my truck and wring its scrawny neck and mount the skull as a hood ornament......or i may put it into a nearby swift truck to live with its kin. Depends on my mood :p

    Make sure your seal on the man door is installed correctly @Arctic_fox im sure if the dealer is installing it, it will be fine. The company shop installs ours and the seals don’t always seem to fit right, I have my ideas as to why but I won’t get in to that. It makes getting in and out much less sketchy as opposed to climbing the wall and jumping in and out.

    Doin good up here @Trashtrucker1707 sorry for the delay in responses. Been real busy and not much exciting to report. Concrete sand around KC, it rained Friday so did salt to Columbia and then got rock from northeast Missouri back to Columbia and called it a day. Today helped unload the granite train and we’ll finish it up tomorrow. They are callin for anywhere from 1-4 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow so that’ll be fantastic. I was hoping all that was over but I suppose not :mad:

    Yup i know all of steves trucks had seal issues. Hence why i got a all in one kit. Between that and a proper dealer doing the work, it SHOULD fit perfectly from the start. Will deffo be nice to be able to get into my rig without the annoying ladder and crowbar setup.

    On an unrelated note, im sure glad i didnt sit on my ### waiting for a nox sensor. The dealer was sold out and said 2 to 8 weeks to get one. So i did a bunch of footwork and calls and found one in ohio thats being over nighted in and another in alaska thats coming via snail mail to go in my spare parts box.

    The heck with that forecast @motocross25 my dad hunts in arcola MO every year, both dear and turkey, and he’s headed out next week for his spring turkey hunt, he’s starting to wonder if there will be much “spring” in the air, based on what you’re dealing with, a good guess might be no.

    Played the waiting game most of today, unloaded in scottsboro Alabama then bounced over to Whitestone Georgia to load up some marble. Heading back to the shop tomorrow to hopefully get this truck lined up, maybe the 85th time is the charm :) BA635F40-4CCB-44F8-84F2-4EC69AE166CF.jpeg
