  1. one more thing- I'd be willing to bet these moisture spots on your walls will correlate to window wells or downspout drainage areas. If so that's a good things as chances are you can limit the moisture by making some changes on the outside.
  2. I agree as well as I had the same issue I used drylock on all my basement walls before finishing it- only difference is that my cement walls were never painted- not sure if that makes a difference or not before applying it.
  3. I have a 99 1500 and agree that the brake lines should be checked as I had incidents with rust leaks as well. Otherwise its a great beach vehicle. Sleeps 2 adults without any issues and you can rig up poles up to 11 ft inside the truck along headliner.
  4. Forget the dingy and get a Kayak. Stay away from all the yahoo's on the water with motors. Fish early just before sunrise mon - fri only. Get off the water when you hear the first boat. You will catch fish in that area.
  5. All this nonsense over where to put rods makes me want to hang onto my old suburban forever. Pickups just seem like the worst vehicle to me for transporting rods unless if you have a full cap and even then I'm not to thrilled about leaving my gear outside....
  6. A raised COT if nice since it will also allow you to store items underneath. I have a coleman Trailhead II cot that measures 75 x 30 x 17 that fits great in the back of a Suburban. Need to add a memory foam on top for better support but the space underneath is nice to have.
  7. If the caliper is sticking the rim(s) should get very hot as well after a good drive. That's what happened to me at least but there was no noise, just a hot rim and what smelled like an electrical fire. Did you check the thickness of the pads to confirm your just not hitting the sensors?
  8. "Straps keep the kayak from touching the brand new cap I just bought" - As for another option you may want to get some pipe insulation foam strips from home depot. They come pre-split and all you need to do is measure your roof rack rail length and attach nice and snug with some plastic cable ties (black pipe strips & black plastic ties work well together). Then use the same straps you have to secure the kayak to the rails. Having those straps the way you do now may generate a ton of noise on the highway but I'm guessing you need it this way to load sideways? If you load from the rear to front you should be able to slide on top of the rear foam strip but perhaps not depending on your situation..... Good luck!
  9. Cut that in half and you have a nice jack stand stand platform as well....
  10. Appreciate all the responses, going to further digest this and weigh out my options. May just stick with warm water conditions for now. Thanks again.
  11. I didn't even realize till now there was both a dry and wet suit option. I do have 2 pairs of waders already that I use for surf fishing, 1 is heavy neoprene and the other is light fabric type material. I always figured waders would be to dangerous if I fell in and they filled with water but is that fear unwarranted when coupled with a life jacket?
  12. Can anyone offer and good advice on what type of wetsuit I should wear for kayak fishing in the south bay? Last year was my first out there and I now realize that shorts and a t-shirt are not going to cut it anymore especially for the early and late season. Looking for something that will be comfortable early spring to early fall- is that possible or would I need both a light weight and heavyweight suit? Appreciate any thoughts out there. Thanks!
  13. As a last ditch effort I'd go after every piece of that harness I could get my hands on and give it a few tugs here and there. If your lucky you may fix your ground issue for at least a little while.
  14. Ticket prices are insane and pretty much sold out already. If the weather is good I will hang in the parking lot and BBQ some grub and chill....
  15. I can fit multiple 11 ft rods inside my 99 Suburban using custom headliner rod holders. When the rear doors are closed I till have a full inch clearance on front windshield and back window.
