yeah I live in an apartment complex. there aren't trees around but there's no underground etc near me that I can park without getting towed.

back to winter time though, so I might be doing a coolant flush because idk what's in it now since I've only had the car since July.

I just put winter tires on it and it IS my winter beater. Goes through anything as long as it doesn't bottom out. Main thing is to keep an eye on the coolant or the heat won't work.

Those who claim to be smart and right all the time are often dumb and wrong.

My motorcycle is my winter beater for the most part, I drive my truck when its nasty out or going on a long trip.

Its either be on a cold 10 minute motorcycle ride and park right on campus, or drive my truck, park a mile away, and walk 10 minutes in the cold haha.

It's 10* in the mornings here in Anchorage already and warms up to 25* during the day if we are lucky. We got our first snow fall 4 days ago too! Changed the tires and wheels, and did an oil change. I hate the winters in Alaska, I can't wait to PCS from here.

Put on the winter wheels, spray the coilovers with Boeshield T-9, put my Shiftie on that ice block we call an MPx shift knob, and change the oil.

I have BC's too. Boeshield works great. You just clean the coilover and spray the T-9 on them. It lasts for about 6 months with minimal care.

I'll be putting on my extra set of wheels with junk tires so if I get a flat spot, big deal.

Will be cleaning the gas tank out, scrubbing it down well. Doing a return line and Bosch 044 so I might as well clean the tank too.

The rest.....eh.......

Just got my 1993 Ford F150 with 281k miles up and running again. Parents gave it to me if I could get it running again. Fuel pump, alternator, power steering line, starter. Less than $300 in it and she runs fine. Love Rockauto.
