It was the thing that the fuse plugs into. Don't know the correct term. Majority of the bill was for time though.

I dressed up as alan from the first hangover with a baby strapped to me. And it was a doll. Just in case you didn't assume.

The black widow is off of the discount ramps website. $150 with the extension. I like it because of the design. Thicker support bars and way more support bars on the sides than the other one.

Dang that sucks!! At least its fixed now...

----------

Btw, I got that pic of you roof rack glenn, looks great!!!

----------

So at the parking lot I park in, here at school, there are rarely open spots to park....so when I went to Walmart tonight, I put a cone that I found in my spot, hoping nobody would park there....I get back and someone tossed the cone across the parking lot, and parked there, over the lines (so taking up part of the next spot over)....so thirty minutes later I found a spot on the road. Too bad for them I work for campus security, and I work tomorrow. Somebody is getting a parking ticket haha

It really angers me when someone would park in my spot, or block my car in with theirs. And the crazy thing was their excuse always seemed to be "but there's nowhere else to park". LOL! I just started having them towed. Only then did it stop.

Ok pat... heres what i did to mount my explorer roof rack.
First i used 3/8 aluminum bars, 1.5 wide, about 60" long..and measure out the holes for the roof rack, drilled and tapped them to 1/4-20NC. There were 5 holes per bar...

Then I centered my roof rack on the topper the best i could... the topper, like the bed, gets wider up front/narrower in the rear.... then used a black marker to mark my holes, after i used a tape measure to get the rack as close to center and even as possible...

Drilled my mark holes for a 1/4-20 bolt, so used a 9/32 drill bit...or a tad bit bigger...
Then had my bud crawl inside the topper and line up my bar to the holes while i tightened the bolts, which were button heads bolts.

heres a pic of one of the aluminum bars.
Also, depending on the inside contour of the topper, u dont want to get too thick bars, u want them to bend and curve to the top of the topper...this pic doesn't really show that well.






Also got all my fender flares on!!





This shows how far they stick out.

Hey, "Machine" I'd read in another thread that you bought a fabtech spare tire angled mount for $80 straight from fabtech, and I couldnt find anything online I was just wondering how you found it?
