  1. Yes Sir. Got two tractors actually. The first is an old International 444 and the other is a 2016 Kioti CK2510. Im just a country boy and wouldnt have it any other way.
  2. I was thinking the same thing.

    I am not sure. Just as soon as I get a chance I plan on making a list of the stuff I have seen posted so far and sending in it. But in the time being I have edited your original post for you.

    Another good idea would be to have a feature where we could do like on facebook and tag a user in a post so they are notified to look at it. So far the only way I know to do this for an Admin is to pm/email them, or report the post.

    As a Moderator I do not have the power to do this. That would have to be done by one of the Admins. Also your post about the current vehicle feature would have to be handled by an Admin also. The Moderators only have the power to Moderate posts. All changes to the site itself has to be done through the Admin panel. But both are good ideas.
  6. Lexington, NC Police Dept. uses I know of at least one First Gen. TC as their Crime Scene Investigation Unit. And they use them overseas a lot.
  7. I was going to mount one to my 2012. But effective Oct. 1, 2017 they are against the law here in NC on the roadways. It is still legal to have them on the vehicle and drive, but illegal to drive on the road with them on. And seeing how 95% of my driving the van is done at night on state maintained roadways and not backwoods country roads (like I would prefer to stay on), I cant not see adding one now when it would never get used. Politicians...... GRRRRR !!!!!!! But I always say more light is always better than having to say what the hell did I just hit ??? At least you can see and know what it was.
  8. I can say this. I am very lucky to have what I do and how I came to have it. But I will say this. The lift was the least expensive part of the process. The building and the concrete floor were the most expensive. The lift itself was only around $3k for a 10,000 lb. Me and Dad waited a long time to be able to have that thing. Spent many years crawling under our cars with Dad in the wet mud and snow to fix a problem. (it sucks) But no matter what equipment or how much it costs, if you do not use it properly and continually, then what is the point in having it. Be safe my friends, and stay greasy.
  9. Not much more. Still working on it and a few other projects at the same time. Slow going right now.
  10. I like my jack personally. It has the stands built in.
  11. Not sure what year you are inquiring about. I never used a floor jack with my 2012 TC but I did use ramps and had no problems. I have seen others mention that they have used floor jacks by taking a piece of wood and cutting a slot into it. Then placing the pinch weld into the slot, and placing the wood block onto the floor jack.
  12. actual tire pressure reading on dash

    Depending on which year model of the Transit Connect you have. 2010-2013 you do not have that option. You have to get out and figure out which one it is by deduction.
  13. Ok. Managed to find the 2016 owners manual online and verified that this info is incorrect. I also did not see anything listed for the DLR's as far as a fuse or relay to check. More than likely they are piggybacked onto another system and not listed. One thing I have noticed on my 2012 TC is that everything seems to be tied into each other someway or another. Removing one fuse to solve one problem creates 1 or more new problems. If all else fails you could pull one of my redneck moves and just put a piece of tape over the light. Now days the lights are LED's so you cant just pull the cluster and remove the bulb. :( And if none of this works then the last option is to ditch the hids and return to halogens or try LED's. But I hope that it does not come to that. I loved my HID and LED's.
  14. Ok. I am not sure if this would be the same or not. But you can try and check Relay #15 in the fuse box under the hood. This should be the Daytime Running Lamps R15 relay. I would also check your owners manual to verify this before attempting just to confirm that this is the correct relay for the 2016 Transit Connect Model. I express double checking because this is info that I acquired from the internet via other sites and from another continent. It may be wrong.
