Like button!
Hopefully ya ported the exhaust too!

I am saving up for the V8 conversion kit. Gona put a blower on it and run nitro methane with open exhaust. I figure the faster I get those jacks to move, the less chance of anoying someone.[emoticon]

Well, I hope you at least mix the oil a little heavier to help with the skeeters!

The next person I hear using an impact on their stabilizers im throwing their impact in the garbage or in a lake! [emoticon]

Please use a cordless drill!
I have a hand held impact cordless drill. Ryobi.

Has 3 settings. Clutch for torque limit on a screw, locked for wood/metal drilling, and impact for drilling in concrete.
Never seemed that load actually.

Now if you are talking a half-in drive 300+ ft-lb impact only gun to remove wheel lugs those are a bit louder. I have a Craftsman model. I would not bring this heavy tool camping. Yes it is a bit louder but would probably lift the RV off the ground before the noise was noticed.

I still prefer the hand crank for the stabilizers and the drill stays at home.

I think you have a Ryobi hammer drill/driver, not an impact cordless drill. I have the same. The noise is the chuck actually short stroking in and out, or hammering a drill bit.

A true story:
My brother was on a scouting trip and needed a quick throwdown camp for the night. He drove off the highway on a dirt road across a sagebrush flat a few miles and was having dinner when a car appeared on the horizon. it got closer and closer, stopping about 50 feet away, and the fella started setting up camp. My brother walked over to him wearing his sidearm, and told him "If I wanted neighbors, I would not have camped here". The fella left in a hurry.

The point is, that if you want to camp near others... You gotta understand that someone will annoy you....Just as you are sure to annoy someone as well.


As we are driving away, I'd be on the phone to the cops telling them how there is some crazy guy flashing a gun at people passing by...probably won't send him to jail but I'm sure he will love spending a couple hours discussing with the cops.

Something tells me that a state with enough open space for that kind of camping wouldn't have a legal problem with a holstered sidearm out in the boonies. Of course, the description "flashing a gun at people passing by" would be just plain lying. No better than the "Karens in Florida" that we keep reading about.

My Ryobi works well on the jacks. My stabiizers are hooked directly to rig power.

Wow, that sound of a cordless impact 1/4 mile away for 11.5 total seconds sure annoys the hell out of me, and stay off my lawn.

Interestingly hearing the sound at least 50 times yesterday afternoon, holiday weekend at a 100% occupied state park, did not ruin the weekend.

Good luck with that. Like many remote places we camp in, there is no phone service. Any problems you have, you gotta deal with it yourself.
And yes sidearms are a fact of life in those situations.

So someone with a holstered firearm equates to "flashing a gun" roflmao, freaking liberals. Good luck with that indeed.
