    What about early 2000s era trucks? Seems like a 7.3l diesel over a V10 gas for a few grand more could be worth it if it's a one ton camper hauler.

    When he went down on the cat track at the end of his phenomenonal fwt run my mind immediately thought of the Q asymmetry. Hard to say that it didn't play a factor in that.

    I've got an email into Keith asking him about this. Ambrosia maple sounds very durable, but I'm curious about other veneers that are lighter in color and less "busy" with the wood grain.

    LVS won't your wet bath accommodate skis at an angle? Use some rubber matt for the floor and a bungie to secure.

    I guess I don't ski the big boy lengths so maybe why it's worked for me before. 😁

    That makes good sense. I think I would keep my Qs lean and insert for a race binding and shift. And get BGs for inbounds. I'm 175lbs with gear but still think I'm 155 😁

    Screaming bear is one of my favorite top sheets. So awesome.

    For the custom sale, I wish there was a way to get a standard nylon graphic, but with veneer for its weight saving and damp properties.
