    I cut my hair w/o a guard as close to the skull as I can anymore without breaking out a razor to shave it afterwards. So yeah my head is usually very cold, carhartt stocking cap keeps it warm tho so I got that going for me
  4. Running great!

  5. Since it IS a cheapo one from JEGS ($70 shipped)
    I have the original parts in one of the storage compartments and left the ballast mounted to the firewall.
    I could swap it out quick in an emergency.

  6. My idle is low enough that at redlights the headlights dim and forget about having the heater on.
    the ambulance is a low rpm vehicle and I am not willing to turn the idle up just so the delco alternator will kick in.
    So after a ton of searching (i dunno why its so hard to find smaller pulleys)
    I ordered this one last night.
    This payday i will get some selectro hubs as well.
    Some apps might require a different length belt., typically not though.
    Standard 17mm rotor bore

    I had a Camaro that used to do that at red lights but that was just cam and engine setup, hehe, it sure would get to the next red light in a hurry

    do you carry a floor jack around with you? I hate changing the 235/75/15's on my jeep, I'd be dead trying to change that tire.
