I'm saving up for the Christmas sales. Seems like every year there are some awesome deals and I have no dry powder....

For that price, buy 10 of them and keep one in every room of the house.

Re: 6' Step Ladders At HD


I'm positioned to capitalize on the seasonal specials this year.

I thought the truck was going to bust my budget with the overdrive solenoid, but the 35 year transmission specialist gave me the green light. Everything's operating properly and no charge for the diagnosis. Fingers crossed....

Yup. Still lovin' it too. 168,000 miles on the '01 2500 4x4 Quad. Spit out a check engine code last week. Got it checked out and was told it was the OD solenoid. Trans guy cleared the code, put some miles on it trying to get it to trigger and noticed no issues with searching for gears or not dropping into OD, so clean bill for now.

Just had to bolt a water pump onto the 94 1500 4x4 on Saturday. 133,000 on that one.

5.9 Magnum in both of mine. The '01 has had hub bearings, upper and lowers, trac bar twice, front brakes twice, rear once, fuel pump, water pump, washer fluid pump front axle seals, starter and shocks. Not bad, since I put all but the first 50 miles on it myself, aside from the occasional mechanics test drive.

The '94 was my dads. Not sure what he had done to it. He bought it used.

I put full brakes, front calipers and lines/hoses, catalytic converter, pipe and muffler, oil sending unit, starter and water pump in it. It sat for a couple years when he was sick, so you know how that goes.

They're both solid running trucks at the moment.

Not to be a spoilsport, but I think the blue box will have the green fiberglass 6' ladders for $19 on Black Friday if you don't mind shopping that day.

Re: 6' Step Ladders At HD


I have already picked one up and I'm thinking about getting a second one later today. Yes they will have the green one on sale for black Friday but this one has a fancy bucket that snaps into the top. Ooh la la

Inspect for marginal rivets and use a bolt/locknut/fender washers where necessary.
