Cam out okay. Not what I expected, but at least I didn't lose any. Since it was 10 years old (with low miles, though), people were asking about the battery a lot and were concerned about the replacement cost. Which isn't actually too bad if you DIY it. But since most people aren't the DIY kind, the concern is expected.

Probably not going to dabble in the hybrids anymore, unless I find one that's REALLY cheap.

With only a few exceptions, I’ve bought all new tires exclusively from Discount Tire for the past 15-20 years. I’ve lately gotten kind of tired of them nickle and dimeing you on this that and the other as well as not really having too good prices.

So, ordered today a set of 285/45-22 Bridgestone Dueler Alenza H/L Plus rubber from Costco for the wife’s new Burb. Saved almost 300 bucks over DT since they didn’t want to price match. Just over $1000 with everything included after $150 instant rebate.

And if Costco’s tire warranty is anything like their warranty on all other stuff, I think we’ll be good to go for quite some time. The Bridgestones have 80K treadlife warranty, anyway, so the Burb will be gone before she gets to that kind of mileage. :mrgreen:

That's why I usually go to Sams for tires they beat out others on pricing with the total tires and install package prices.
Only problem is they gave me a hard time putting bigger tires than stock on my truck. It had 255/70/17 on it and all I wanted was 265/70/17 put on. They were saying they didn't want to be responsible for any rubbing which I understand but come on the new tires are less than a 1/2" wider and just slightly over 1/2" taller than stock.
They ended up putting them on finally but had me sign the receipt saying they weren't responsible for any mishaps because of it :lol:

And for a very good reason. Unfortunately. That’s just the way ‘Murica is... :roll:

Yep. I can't blame them. The least little thing and somebody will take you to court.

Went to Sams this morning to get some stuff for Thanksgiving and they had about 5 little 12 lb turkeys and no hams. :(
They did have a little amount of paper towels and toilet paper though. Seems like if I go on Sunday mornings to shop during hero hours they usually have paper products that are hard to find.
I heard 2 guys outside talking before they opened saying how they had a garage full of paper towels and toilet paper. What assholes. :roll:

In other news... The OU Sooners got another bedlam win again last night. The OSU Cowboys played like a bunch of Texans :lol: Sorry Vince
