Does anyone know of a decent pick n pull in the southeast wisconsin area? I've been looking for one for a while with no luck...

Besides that anyone have a spare passenger tail light laying around that they don't need? A tree claimed mine on trail a couple weeks back... Damn jumping trees. Lol

I forget if I've already said this, but if you're up for a drive there's a pretty big yard up by south appleton/menasha right off of 41

Well yesterday mine got broken into. Luckily they just popped the lock and didn't break anything. Whoever it was was too dumb to figure out how to remove my deck thank god.

No I just replaced the bulbs, I never worried about it when they went out, I just had some spare time today and living less than a quarter mile from auto zone AND advance gives me ideas on what I can tinker with lol

OT: I Told the wife I could sell one of them and she said "no way!" Which is great because I wasn't serious, just wanted to be the good guy... know what I mean.
