    Thats odd, bosch icons are the only wipers we run here. Never had a problem with them lifting off while its raining, even going 65+/-

    On what vehicle? The slope of the windshield on the G6 is actually rather extreme.

    Mix it back, I don't mind rap. But I hate modern rap. Classic rap was actually good music. This dude needs to pull up his pants and get a job. Something that doesn't make him seem like the dredge of society.

    ^ THIS! That was fairly disturbing auditory raping.

    That's pretty much what Dubz was talking about though. This guy isn't in a gang, yet he dresses/accessorizes/sounds like he wants to be that makes him a wannabe.

    The neighborhood I grew up in was bad. It wasn't uncommon to go to sleep at night to the sounds of gunshots, sleeping in the tub as a level of protection from getting shot. However I never once thought "Hey, let me turn into a waste of breath like the rest of these losers" I worked, and my parents worked to get out of there.

    The Awolnation song is pretty good.

    Cbear, I use the Trico wipers from Oreillys and have had good luck with them. I tried the icons last winter and had a helluva time getting ice and whatnot off of them. The Trico performed much better in that aspect and I've never had trouble with them not wiping rain off well. I had some Michelins that were absolutely horrible, so stay away from them.

    I'm going back to my Rain-X wipers. I had them for 2 years, however the store I had stopped at didn't have them. So I said "Bosch Icons are good, they have to be." God that was a mistake! I called Bosch today and they said "We'll have to call you back" yeaaaaaaaahhhhhhh I'll believe that when I get the call.

    See if you can get Ark to sit on the hood and wipe the windshield for you.

    I would, but I don't think he'd be able to get both sides of the windshield from the hood.

    You're right. Oh well, I always try to look out for the little feller and keep him occupied.

    Thank you kindly, Trade. I appreciate it. I'm excited to get one of the brand new ones in hand and try it out. There are a few more bugs to work out, but I think we're well on our way. I may even have a few.... to spare.... at the Gathering.

    Patience.... Soon enough. :D

    I'll be seeing them at a nearby bar next weekend, WW. I love Blackberry Smoke. :thumbup:

    Head on over to Todd's music thread. I think I've posted up quite a bit of their stuff.

    mmmm..... Free beer.

    You best make that your next Becker.... Scratch that; make it your next blade.

    Cbear you posted multiple times since that post and NOW you wanna bring it back up??

    First off, if i let what people wear bother me i wouldnt be able to listen to ANY music at all.

    Second off, the way a person talks or dresses does NOT mean they wanna be anything. I dont dress like that... And would never, but that doesnt mean i judge him or anyone else because of how they dress or talk.

    Third, he has a job and makes BIG money, and the way he dresses and talks is part of his image, and all that helps him make his big money.

    4th, where you grew up doesnt mean anything if you stayed inside with your mom and dad the entire time and they made decent money... your still on the outside looking in. Grow up dirt poor, go homeless and hungry, learn to live on the street with those "wannabes" and your attitude has NO choice but to change, you adapt to your surroundings. You wear whatever someone gives you despite how it looks. Just like you and your family worked to get out of poverty, he worked to get out of poverty too, but im betting you started out with a better start, yet he figured out a way to make more money in way less time.....

    Take someone from Britain when they are 10 years old and then move them to Australia. By the time they are 15 their entire accent and wardrobe has started to change, by the time they are 20 a lot of people would never know they were Britain. They are not wannabes, they are simply adapting to their surroundings.

    Not liking a type of music is fine, but calling people wannabe gangsters, or a waste of breath, just because of how they talk or dress is prejudice.

    This is not a battle i can lose, simply because no one can make me think differently. Same probably for the rest of you... Thats why its best to just let it go.


    I think your the one who posted it originally when i had never heard of them.... It was someone around here.... Thanks :D

    The RIGHT attitude here!! Im the same way... Techno gives me bad anxiety LMAO I feel like im suppose to start hitting something or banging my head into a wall HAHAHA... But i have several friends who love it and other friends who love metal... I dont mind what others listen to at all, and dont judge them for it.... I just dont play it at home... Easy LOL

    I ended up going on a bender and buying 4+ of them. As far as the ones we decided to restore, mine's a 1961 CJ3B and Dad's is a 1953 CJ3B. Dad's is a running work in process and we stripped mine down to nothing and started from the frame up. It is so close to being done. We have it to a rolling chassis with a mostly patched up body right now. We just need to finish up the rear corners then prep it for paint.

    Here's my build thread. I started it before I moved 200 mi away and quit working on it. Dad's done quite a bit here and there on mine, but I miss working on it. I hope to get down this fall and get quite a bit knocked out. She should be up and running well before next Spring.

    Here's Dad's running wood truck duty this past winter.

    I hate music. It leads to sex, drugs and bad haircuts.
