Next blower will be at least 10hp/30".

Brand names don't count for much these days when it comes to where something is made. Bought a Simplicity walk behind rear tine tiller. Turns out Simplicity/Snapper  sources the tiller from a company called Ardisam who get the tiller from China. Ardisam sells the same tiller (different color) under the "Earthquake" brand.  Ah well, I said, at least it has a Briggs and Stratton (Intek) motor on it.  Checking the specs on the B&S website I find out the motor is made in China too.  

That said, it's been a good machine but it would have been better if it was made here. Put a new B&S motor on my brother's wood splitter a few years back .... it was made in Japan. The Kawasaki engine in my John Deere X320 ... Made In The U.S.A. If Kawasaki can do it, why not Briggs & Stratton or MTD?

That brings up the question of what is better. Where a company headquarters are or where they put labor. Honda Toyota or any import built here, or Ford Chevy built out of the states? However that's a topic for a different thread. What a Face

Like it, fills out the wells nice and proportionally the aesthetics hit the mark.  Wheel to tire, tire to wheel well, wheel/tire that don't extend 4 feet outside of the wheel well.  Like it like it. It looks like a Jeep, and not a buggy mobile.

Now that you did all that, sell it to me.  At my price of course.  Smile

YGTBFKM.  They would know the football score from last night, or which dress Kim was wearing but not much beyond that.

Gruber is right, American's are stupid.

Looks awesome Jason. Does it seem to be squatting a bit in the rear or is it just my eyes? Either way, I'd take it in a heart-beat! Love it! And I even know what a Willys is. The first military vehicle I drove was a M-38. Beast off road for sure.

Happy belated Anniversary to you and yours!

Its squatting just a bit. Carried home all the stock tires...had them packed in there tight as sardines.

The lift kit I have is made assuming you will install a winch on the front too and allows for that extra weight.

That is on the list too.

Got the garden weeded and mmostlyt planted. Like last year I found tomato cages at Walmart made in USA. This year I decided I want to install a drip system and automatic Starr stop timer for watering. With the drought in CA it should help me do my part to conserve. Plus I won't have to worry about watering the vegies now.  I went to Orchard and found a pre made box with all the tubes and fittings for the drip system made in the USA.

Sweetness. Had no idea TrueGlo made anything for the AR. Been looking around at some sight illumination options for a G23. Would be a nice option of the TruGlo sights for the AR flipped up and down. Co-witnessing a scope or red dot, yummy. He's going to like the rifle.

Is the picatinny rail on the gas block the same height as the rail on the upper receiver?

Nice! DPMS is a well made firearm. I have a TruGlo on my S&W MP 15/22. On my AR-15's I have a Nikon P223, and on the other AR-15 I have a Bushnell TRS-25.
Have fun with it, the price of ammunition seems steady now except for the 22Lr.
Google Freedom Munitions, they have a good stock, and on most holiday weekends and other times they offer free shipping. Their price is better than most. I usually buy 1,000 rounds of 62 gr. 5.56 and split the cost with a neighbor. There only downside is shipping for me takes 8-10 days. The do have a store in Texas beside their main online sales.

I haven't tried my TruGlo on my AR-15's, but on the 22Lr. AR I had to put a riser on to co-witness. With the Nikon P223, you don't see the front sight at all at co-witness. The Bushnell Red Dot you do see the front A2 site.

YouTube. First learn how to take it apart and clean it before you use it. Make sure nothing looks out of place. Take the rear takedown pin out (won't pull completely out), pull the bolt, make sure they are cleaned and lubed. Lube the rails, anywhere where metal slides on metal. Use which ever cleaner you like ( I use CLP, cleans, lubricates, and protects) put the CLP on a bore snake and run it through the barrel in the direction the bullet will travel, don't go back and forth. They are a very simple firearm, easy to swap out parts, It's a mans Barbie doll.
