    Haha many overage drunk nights there for me. When Id drink there, I was fascinated that back in ye olden days, that site sat on the northern border of New Amsterdam.

    I went to a Jesuit high school in the Bronx. St. Patrick's Day was an unofficial holiday as no one showed up to school and you wouldn't get a tardy. I always made it a ritual to have a few pints at McSorley’s before it got rowdy.

My wife can last maybe 6 hours in a cheap seat, so breaking up the flight may make sense.

    What airport back east is best to stay at (hotel at the airport, not a mile away) and not a total cluster fuck like the one time we flew into JFK? Thanks for your suggestions.
    Regan. Easy metro ride to tons of A+ hotels.

    .

    Updated reply.
    So apparently JFK now has a hotel on site.
    They have repurposed one of the older terminals (with add on) Into a onsite hotel with free air train service to other terminals. I have been told. Two of my nieces stay d there last night for early flights this morning.

    (Sort of) on the subject--best airport hotels I ever stayed at were at Mian Malpensa. One on arrival was a grand old building with a fabulous breakfast buffet, one on departure was a newer building with an outstanding restaurant next door. None was on the airport property proper, no noise, but less than 5 minutes away. (Not sure how that works but it did.)

    Kid got a flat this weekend in my car Jeep GC, so AWD.

    I put new tires on it about 8k miles ago.

    Any reason not to just replace the one tire?

    My new (to me) car that I purchased this summer only came with one key. I didn't realize this until the deal was done and figured it wouldn't be a big deal.
    But now I'm getting around to replacing it.....Do modern car keys really now cost $300 or $400?

    year/make/model.............Lot's of third party options for factory keys BUT they are all kind of spendy. If you lose your ONLY key it could be substantially more.

    Perhaps. What does jeep say about it? Some makers say all four or it fuck up your AWD transfer parts. Not sure I totally buy that. My advice is get two of the same since they are probably new enough to still be made?

    Yes. And that reminds me... I need to get a spare key for our truck.

    My wife put a VW key through the wash in 2012 and that was $180 from the dealer. 9 years ago. Wrong thread?

    maybe? when I got my Sequoia, it only came with one key. After researching on a Tundra/Sequoia forum, there was apparently an aftermarket key you could buy and some weird (but easy) steps to program it. I didn't want to spend hundreds so gave it a whirl and it worked, instant backup key!

    If your car is the type to have a forum associated with it, search there. But don't expect it to be as scintillating as the TRGs.

    RE: car keys, not having two keys generally reduces the car's trade-in (or to a lesser degree resale) value by more than the cost of a replacement key.

    Who here would willfully choose to leave the dealer logo license plate frame on their car? Removing that junk is literally the first I do when I bring a vehicle home and yet I bet 20-30% of the cars I see have em.

    For sure and that's why I'm taking care of it now rather than waiting until I "need" to

    that's great to hear. I saw some of those self programming keys for like $30 but was skeptical. Maybe I'll just give it a whirl and see how it works before dropping the money for the OEM key

    thanks for the advice, gang

    Same here. I'm not going to give them free advertising.

    I would place it at an even higher percentage
    I even went as far as risking the wrath of police and took the blazing red dealer front plate off before I got my permanent plates.
    I figured I don't really do anything wrong driving anyway and they may understand the aesthetics angle

    I might leave the plate holder just to hide the edges of the plate, or until I replace with something more suitable.

    I do remove all dealer stickers and decals from the body and windows though. This includes the stencilling on the cap; for some reason I'm triggered by a partially removed Cap-It stencil on someone's cap. Clean up and remove that obnoxious shit!

    Piggy backing off the AWD fucking up w tires question, I'm getting a transit awd van next year. Thinking bigger tires. How do I now I'm not straining etc the AWD system? Those transit van tires are pretty small. Thx!

    I think you'll be ok as long as you don't put 35's on it.

    That might be a dealer only key/fob. It's never the physical fob/key that's expensive but the programming.

    Locksmiths can often do the programming, and obviously the cutting of the key blank. Worth calling a few to ask.
