    I've started collecting all kinds of tools from HF for my build.. Heck used a 2-ton engine hoist (shop crane) to jack up and support the whole rear of my XJ so we could do the rear suspension (and now I've purchased a 2 ton shop crane to have just in case in the garage.. Now I just need to order the engine leveler deal to have on hand when it comes time for engine removal, since my local HF never has them... Matter of fact, I just went yesterday and picked up an SAE and Metric impact sockets.. all so I could remove the front two 35's off my 90 and install stock 29" tires so it could be loaded up on a dolly and head to it's new home.. Place is dangerous sometimes though... I spent over 450 in two days there.. lol

    Since you work there, here is a question for you. I was looking at this mobility carrier the other day and if you unbolted the receiver on it, it would make an excellent roof rack. It measures 27"X47" and looks sturdy.

    The question is, can you get parts for it to put a front bar across the back and box it in with something that looks nice? Of course you could always cut down the ramp to fit across the back. But just wondering

    Yeah are ramps would work. But at 59 for the 1/2 ones I might not cut them up lol. Yeah I work there and every time I get payed I spend a 1/4 of my pay check back into there lol. But plus side is when ever I need to replace something its no problem.

    I probably wouldn't ever use this for a luggage rack personally, but I was thinking that for 179 that would make a nice rack for someone to bolt down to our existing rails. It is nice and sturdy and looks nice

    I was looking at are hitch mount winch mounts and I'm going to get her done. When I do ill add pics so everyone can benefit from it that has a small budget like I do. Like I said if anyone need something let me know. I live in a state where there is no sales tax and i get 20% off my whole purchase and not the 20% on one item. So I would be willing to help out an any way possible.

    Nice! My Harbor Freight collection is growing just about every week. It makes a lot of things possible that otherwise just couldn't happen. And I mean the prices. Changed out my rear wheel bearings and seals last year. Got the bearing puller attachments for my sliding hammer and the seal driver set for just over 50. That would have been probably more than 150 at sears or something and I can't afford prices like that. Like I said, it makes a lot of things possible.

    And I am now an ITC member.

    Sweetness!!! ITC is the way to go cus of all the additional things and prices you get and 29.99 for a year is not bad at all. Are Moto is quality tools at ridiculously low prices.

    I've never even heard of the ITC program... WTF?!!! Man.. all the money I've spent @ HF, you'd think they'd have said something about it by now.. Heck, some of them know me by name I've been in there so many times...

    Yeah no doubt... I'm sure I would as well.. Especially with all the purchases I've made in the last two months working on the XJ...

    Ok l. I'm sorry they have not told you about the Inside Track Club. Rundown time!!! So the ITC or Inside Track Club is 29.99 for one year, now the benefits of having the ITC are you get 1,000 worth of coupons every month and more if you have a smart phone. Also then HFT has its big parking lot sales your get all the sale prices the day before. On top of that all orange tags on marked products is what price you pay. And much much more lol. But if you are going to get an ITC please tell them the employee that told you about it and his # is 224382. I will help out so I hope you guys can too. No sales pitch just wont recognition for doing my job of helping out guy with common interests.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think if you sign up for the ITC within 30 days of your purchases, they will refund you the difference.

    I know I've done this with other coupons from HF before (bought something and then a week later got a coupon for it in my email), but I've never had the money to sign up for ITC.

    So yes you can come back in for the difference. The only thing is it has to be with the current sale price. Also at any time you don't wont the ITC you can return it for a refund. Most of are tools have better warranty's then sears. And almost all Pittsburg tools have a lifetime guarantee. I always tell people to get an extended warranty on things we offer them on for the purpose of this is mass produced and every so often it has a manufacturer defect. And one last thing as long as you have your receipt and its under 90 days you can return it for a full refund with no hassle. Hope this info helps. Please feel free to ask about anything. Don't forget the big tent sale in June so get your ITC before then so you can get thos prices the day before the sale.
