    Flashlight for a friend on a farm

    New maglites are no longer that simple, old models or old ones upgrades to leds sure, new ones not so much, have you tried xl50 or xl100?

    Flashlight for a friend on a farm

    If a woman runs and works on a farm, i would not worry about her mechanical knowledge and ability to use flashlight. She is most likely more capable than 70% of men that live in a city.

    Flashlight for a friend on a farm

    this question is getting harder and harder to answer due to sea of flashlights that are almost the same. Farm means .lots of dirt, mud, animal waste..., lights fall down, get grabbed by dirty hands/gloves, i'd look for lights that are not only water resistant but can be submerged and hosed...

    Best H11 bulbs for fog lights (2017 Ford Flex)

    I replaced h11 with h9 in my 2018 pilot, thou it was a headlight, not a fog light. you'll need to modify it to fit, it makes about 50% more light, it is 65W vs 55w stock, you'll need to file off some tabs. However i'd worry about extra heat, since fog lights are usually small, it may cause...

    Nightcrawler hunting lights?

    maybe the reason they barely react to Fulton is that it barely shines. Maybe there is more to leds than just visible light, maybe they feel driver circuit emf.

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    Yea, secret tests that we can't see, so we just have to take their word for it, sure, lol. It isn't a matter of national security, nor ongoing investigation, it is a test of a consumer product. sounds a lot like "we must pass the law first to know what is in it" except they would not even tell...

    Muyshondt has really disappointed. I will never buy from him again. Am I wrong here?

    I noticed that i'm better off in middle lane rather than left following the ambulance and dodging cars that try to squeeze into the left lane, some drivers follow like 2 feet behind not to let anyone merge in front of them, but from time to time, a driver thinks, (judging on behavior) "i'm...

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    That does not look right for a low beam. looks like a flood light, not a proper low beam. Cut offs is not all there is to a light, you can have somewhat proper cut off, and still blind everyone in front of you as well as oncoming traffic. It is about light distribution within the beam. However...

    Tires

    Whatever comes with cars, i rotate them at 15k. and at 30k if i put over 30k in 3 years, by the end of lease they still have another 20-30k of life left in them. I do get set of chains for each car, just in case. but so far never had to use them. If my tpms tells me tire is low i add some...

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    Serve and protect does not apply to you or me, It is literally not their job, according to USSC, nor they are required to know laws, also per USSC

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    Old cars and trucks would have a noticeable difference in mpg at different speeds, but modern ones not so much, my 2021 passport has 9 speed transmission, my rpms at 70mph 2k rpm or below in 8 or 9th gear. However some old cars did good at high speed too, i had several cars with 3800 engine...

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    Rear end are almost always fault of the driver who rear ended another car. i see tons of reports in our body shop, and talk to insurance investigators. Things that drivers say to justify them rear ending someone sometimes are hilarious, but they almost always end up being at fault. exceptions...

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    Lol, cops are not enforcing civil cases especially on the road. cops issue moving violations, which has nothing in common with civil infractions, not even sure where you got such idea. Obstructing traffic does not apply to slightly slower moving traffic. Seems like you coming up with...

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    Can you site the law that you are referring to? If 1 guy going slower then limit, (assuming he not left lane squattering) which is not a crime, i have no idea why you mention a conviction, is creating a danger in your opinion, maybe it is not him who is a real danger. in real world when a limit...
