The rear is such a PITA.

So the sad part is, you can literally get paid to do this. When I got to my first duty station in '09, I was immediately offered to go to Ranger School. That school is meant to break you... to a degree. But they aren't as silly and over the top as this garbage. There are aspects to test you on so many levels but it's for the betterment and rarely, if ever, do the instructors want you to fail. If they say you are going to fail, it's not directed at you and it's just a matter of fact that some will fail. This jackass appears as if he in intentionally trying to break you and make you fail and I don't see that as a good thing. That's not building your "manliness" or whatever. That's just being a cuck.

This has got to be the most stereotypical white people shit I've ever seen.



Apparently the guy who leads this was a mechanic that got out before 9/11.


I mean I was a POG, but this is the equivalent of a cook getting out and then decide to run an "Operator" course.

Clearly. The sad part is that things like these will continue to happen, as they have over the years, just called different things (Wilderness Therapy Camps) (Fat Camps)(Conversion Therapy Camps). Parents will send their kids, until something goes terribly wrong and then we get another Netflix/HBO documentary. All this fueled because of the sociological and political quagmires that have existed over the years.

OR, maybe a retired Army drill sergeant (from the old Army) that just couldn't adjust to civilian life?

Lol I just saw the new ones in the classifieds. Putting ads between attached images now... That's annoying. Might have to go back to blocking them soon

Just had the second water pump in 3 months in my trucks. I swear, I just got home from replacing the pump on one, then the other has a puddle under it. $1400 job, and I learn the hard way you need to spend more on a dealer water pump. Aftermarket pumps last 2 years. Oh well, still cheaper than new trucks. At 19 years old, my next guess would be alternators? Shit, Hope I didn't just jinks myself.

I have to change the battery and wiper motor before my drive to Texas. Wanted to take the twin, but can't fit all the crap my wife wants to take in it. Funny, my one truck has a 30 month battery in it. I've never purchased a 30 month battery in my life. I never skimp on batteries. There is one shop I won't go to anymore....
