Alright what something you guys got for Christmas you want to show or your are excited about, something with a funny story etc..

My soldering gun was pretty pathetic it was basically a spare my dad had at work buried away in his box and I have been complaining about it for god knows how long and was just too big of a procrastinator to go buy a $10 harbor freight one. So he gave me these wrapped up and told me "Now shut the hell up about your crappy soldering gun"

My dad got me an iPad, which I absolutely love. Used some of the money I got from other relatives to purchase a lift for the envoy, looking forward to getting it :smile:
Happy holidays everyone!

Santa brought me a PCM4L autocal Tune, a K&N CAI, 5000k HID's, and some aftermarket projector fogs... Actually the fog lights havn't arrived yet, presumably I'll get them this week.

With any luck, I'll get to install my new goodies today!

My 19 YO son bought me a winch, I couldn't have been happier, told him he spent too much etc.
The only problem is it is a 2000 lb winch :smile:
I'm tickled as can be but know that it won't be terribly useful for winching the TB.
I'll rig up something to use it on our golfcart and I thought I might be able to use it in the boat to help drag trees out of the creek.
If I anchor it to a live tree and hook to a dead one that has fallen in the creek, that might be useful. I'll see.

Well "santa" was very nice to me... my brother (JosueLT) & his wife got me the biggest loser calorie book (as I have lost 120 lbs in the last 8 months as some of you already know), I got a crafstman 21" 4 cycle 87 octane gas snow blower, and since they didn't know the specs of what I wanted, they chipped in and gave me enough money to go buy my Netbook of my choice... but the best part was my family time... no gifts can compare to that

I got lots of camping stuff I had been wanting and then found a deal on some new 35s the day after Christmas, so I hooked myself up.

I got a 64 GB iPod touch to replace my broken old-school Wheel type iPod, and my best gift was a Turkey frying kit. It's not the propane kind you have to do outside, but the type that has an electric heating element so you can fry indoors... I predict a lot of fried foods entering my stomach in the next few months... Also got a case for my Kindle

Get a atv and it will have a great use.. Bought my winch plate a while back just need to buy a winch for my Rancher.

I got clothes and remote controlled toys, sounds like x-mas when I was 9 not 29 but I liked it!

Oddly enough, my sister has an Aspire One D250, she broke the screen so its in my hands till I get the replacement lcd in. That thing takes a beating and still keeps kicking, shes a planogram manager for 30 stores in the denver area, and treats it like a toughbook. Its had a few beers and a few glasses of wine to drink, not to mention 2 yrs of abuse from 9 and 10 year old girls, lol.

As for me, I didnt get much from family, but spending time with them all was better than a present.

I ordered some stuff for christmas, just got em in today. Ordered from sonicelectronix, they collect all fees before hand so no surprises when it gets delivered to you. Some guys were saying that I will get hit with some fees by ups. delivered this morning by ups, no xtra fees upon delivery. Also got better bushings for my djm swaybar. Thanks Tony.


+1 for sonicelectronix
+1 for rockauto

You keep forgetting that we Canucks have to pay duties / brokerage fees on almost EVERYTHING that comes from the States...
Unless we smuggle it in or get lucky with a nice Customs agent of course... :biggrin:

I can say that sonicelectronix collects all that before hand and gives you an overall total. Tirerack, wheelsnext, and rockauto also does this for us Canadians.
