    • Teach,  In reading your last comment IMHO save your tool money for something you want.     You don't seem to have a desire to do mechanical work or the heart or passion for it.     There is no harm in that, some folks like "tinkering" others have better things to do on their free time.      Unless and until you find working on your truck satisfying save your money for things you will use.   A battery powered anything has a battery with a finite life, buying it and tucking it away is doing you or the tool no good.      First you sound apprehensive about working on the truck, that may be due to fear of failure or lack of knowledge.     The way to build confidence is to learn the skills, take some classes or start reading about the basics.       Build on that IF you have the desire, if you still have no interest in it once you get an intro you have lost little in time and money.       That said, you should have enough basic knowledge to perform a compete pretrip inspection.     Can you complete that and confirm your truck is safe to operate?       These trucks are not just bigger cars, they have systems that need function tests to confirm their status.      Do you perform an air brake test the first time you start the truck when you drive it?      Do you do a walk around?      You have a bit of an idea of how these trucks drive, ever do a panic stop?    Ever go to a wet parking lot and get the back end loose?       Before you buy tools you likely won't use, invest the time to learn your truck and, the care and feeding.     Driving a big truck takes a commitment, a commitment that jumping in a car or pick up can't compare with.      Steve       
    • How is this working for you? My city has gone with trunked (if a am saying this right) frequencies and my scanner is useless.
    • Thanks. This may be something we should check into.  Linda
    • Are you able to carry a Rzr across the bed and a car up on the ramps at the same time or were just giving different scenarios you do with the bet setup? Is that a full size Rzr 800-1000cc?
