    I find trucks with 3 pedals oddly effective at limiting the number of borrowing requests.

    Lol I hate to even explain all the quirks in most of my junk. My wife will use my daily to go to lowes or the dump and I tell her as long as it has oil pressure don't worry about the other shit!

    “Can I borrow your trailer?”
    “Sure , if you have something that can pull it, and has a brake controller, because you are going to want to be able to stop.”
    “So-and-so has one I can borrow.”

    Had this same conversation with an old coworker once...he didn't realize my trailer was 18' or they even made 2-5/16" balls. Ended up getting pizza & beer in exchange for my time with truck/trailer since he couldn't work 3 pedals.

    I had a friend borrow my 1 ton diesel because an equipment rental place required a larger than half ton truck to get mini excavators. Apparently he had to back down a huge rural hill because "it wouldn't go in 4wd when I turned the switch." So I answer why the front hubs have dials in them.

    Guess in this day and age it's not common sense.

    Also "if you drive my truck you more guide it by steering than actually turning.." solves the question.

    Dont you mean 4? My Dakota has 4 anyway. Left to right: parking brake, clutch, service brake, throttle.

    The steering on the YJ has always been more of a suggestion, maybe even a pleading request, than any form of real control. And when it does decide to finally turn, hold on cuz with no sway bars nor trac bars, its gonna feel like you're riding a slinky!

    And that's just normal driving. When the locker in the rear decides to finally slip look out! Depending on what the steering input was at that moment, the rear end usually has a mind of its own at that point and put you into the other lane or into the ditch in a heart beat!

    Love Jeeps!

    This is the exact reason I'm a terrible alignment tech. I'm used to having to drive things, and steering wheels not really being straight, so if I dont have to actively drive it to keep it on the road, of if the steering wheel isnt more than an 1/8 turn out, I'm ecstatic. But not everyone feels the same way I do, and I struggle with wanting customers cars "perfect" not just "good to me".

    Most people think that the parking brake is a funny looking hood release...

    So, aside from teh funny meme, my hats off to the 5 year old injuneer who made this cup, and then hands it proudly to their father... it is the perfect analogy for a politician job.
    There is literally no way to hold it that will not result in failure. Hold in left hand = dribble cup b/c can't get mouth close enough. Sideways = stabbed in cheek.

    Probably the same engineer that invented the straw. :)

    Me, I'm just a creative problem solver.
