Decided I'd work on the Jeep today, and figure out why the driver rear caliper is hanging up bad (stinky and smoky and hot as *beep*)
Answer was obvious (smoking gun :snicker: ) upon inspection: one of the slide pins was seized. Got all corroded.
No biggie, call up napa, they have 2 kits in stock, let's buy both in case the passenger side is suspect as well.
Here's my "cluster"... I didn't pull the passenger side apart FIRST.
Got the kits, reassembled the driver's side, all good.
Pulled the passenger side apart; sure enough one of the pins is sticking. BUT... it's because the boot has a MASSIVE CHUNK missing!
*sigh* call napa again... can't get the boot kit ($8.99), but can get the hardware kit ($12.49) after 1PM today.
so i'm sitting with the jeep on the jack outside, waiting for the parts.
Debating if I should pull the driver's side apart again, and put the fresh boots in, along with the rest of the hardware in the kit (clips, sliders, etc.)
Answer really is... yes dummy.

Anyone from Maplewood deal with this yet? Thats crazy.
Occasionally I'll do a planting or hardscape job in Maplewood but I avoid it for the most part. When you register for the town landscaper permit there now they want the serial number of your leaf blowers

For you guys without a yard, is it that hard now to find places to park, I swear once a week I have guys coming in looking to rent space.
It's a nightmare in a lot of places. At least once a week someone stops by my yard to see if anyone has space for them to fit a couple trucks or whatever they have

I've been working on a couple deals that hopefully will pan out, eventually. Namely procuring property to rent space to landscapers and others that need storage.
One item I've been missing is, semi-concrete numbers as to what people are willing to pay for space. If anyone wouldn't mind PMing me with some data I'd appreciate it.

Wtf!?! Why? What does the serial numbers have to do with not being able to use them? Are they using the serial numbers to track theft....lol??

I have no idea what the logic is. I'll do a job or two there every few years so I don't bother with any of that garbage. I tack an extra $500 onto my estimates there, that'll cover the fine if they bust my balls. I follow the rules as long as they're not completely asinine

300.00 a truck is what I have heard. But you better check town zoning before you jump the shark.
Yea i know zoning will be a ***** in some areas, but first it's to find property that's viable to begin with.
What about trailers? do they just count that as another "truck"?

I actually had no idea leaf blowers were illegal in Maplewood....I have a job there next week. Oh well, maybe I'll just skip the clean up part of the job like 95% of other tree guys

300 is a truck and trailer together around here from what I hear
