You have no idea how loud this thing is.
Besides, BBT is practically a turbo.

I actually put the tip on to quiet things down. The amount of noise in the covered bed has decreased significantly. This was mostly accomplished by extending the exit just past the body. It is also a resonator tip with a small amount of fiberglass packing.

DC Sports. $18 on Amazon. Quality BBT.

That's what those big tips do? They quiet it down? I thought they were designed specifically to channel diesel particulates directly into cyclists' faces.

The megaphone ones without any sound muffling do exactly that. :lol:

Yeah, that #BBT isn't anything like the usual brodozer exhaust tip. Those are very good at amplifying the noise and soot.

Brodozer owners belong on FBI watchlists. Insane bumper stickers, ear-splitting wastegates, malicious tailgating. Fucking psychos.

There's indeed a real subset of assholes there.

Severe financial restrictions have just been enacted, providing a temporary exemption to the Three Car Minimum Rule. Fiesta will come out of storage very soon.

Pretty good price for a new 28 foot trailer...

https://columbia.craigslist.org/trb/d/cochran-85x28-enclosed-trailer-call/6953226256.html

Can park in yard and use as storage shed. Doge can tow.

I think a 6x12 trailer will be adequate for a storage shed, and Doge actually can tow it. $1950, factory direct.

If I order a custom 6x14 cargo trailer, should I get a single 5200# axle, or tandem 3500 axles for $300 more? Such a tpugh choice.

It's no duh. A single axle weighs less, uses less fuel, is easier to parallel park, and has half as many axles to grease, brakes to adjust, and tires to keep inflated.

Half as many tires to replace and in some states you don't have to register single axle trailers.

I've been trying, but the cheap ones sell within an hour, and everyone else wants $2000 for a busted up used trailer that I can get for $2500 new.

South Cackalacy does not require registration of non-commercial trailers under 2500#, but this will be more than that.

Fuck trailers. I'm going to build a shed. I just schetched a 10' x 14' base with 2x6 lumber, 5/8 plywood decking, on concrete deck blocks. Maximum span of 6-feet. On grade, fuck permits.
