I have Rain-X fluid, it'* OK...

The problem is, the rain-x streaks somewhat when you wipe. Otherwise just rain falling it'* great. ( i need to fill mine too...lights on)

But Here'* what I carry
  • Old Gloves
    Sleeping Bag
    Snow Brush
    Snow Shovel
    Some snack like a cracker pack, perhaps i'll take a few powerbars too this year I think
    LED Flashlight (really good on batteries, wont burn out from temp/vibration)
    "Winter" floormats
    Lock De-icer

I've been considering one of those battery powered jump start packs. Any comments? I do have AAA which will give me a jump for free, but that takes about 20-30 min, I don't have any jumper cables to help others, etc Will probably purchase either of those.

I miss the days at college carrying a shovel in the trunk.

I had subs in the trunk, all the way to the back (meaning away from the back seat) and it took a lot of work for the back end to get loose. When I would take them out it would break loose easier. Iím sure if I had them right up on the back seat it would break loose even easier. Something to think about, considering a lot of people keep them right up on the back seat. Probably better for the subs to be out in the winter anyway.

Clean the leaves out of your air intake for your blower and off the area around the wipers.

Ensure gas tank lock functions w/o issues. If not..make sure you know where the emergency slider is to unlock it manually.

No one mentioned tires?

Basically.. do everything that you don't want to deal with in cold weather.

Now...for my buddy Bob.. GIT'RDUN and send us lots of pictures during your "good" season.

So is the Rem-Oil for the antennae?? Or can I use anything else? Mine doesn't want to go down unless I give it some 'friendly' persuasion.
