I just bought a new Eljer a couple weeks ago.  I literally spent months researching toilets.  I was going to go with a pressurized tank, but after watching plumbing reviews, I didn't see why I would need anything other than a traditional siphon.  Can't give an opinion on the boot washer.

I have been using a champion 4 for 3 plus years. It takes all my shit! ;)

I bought a chair height Kohler a few months ago and I am less than thrilled about it. The bowl shape collects shit splatter like no other.

I managed to get a 20 mile over speeding ticket. 85 in the 65. First one in over a decade.

I got to thinking the other day.   I was lugging around an enclosure and it was a heavy bitch.  I'm thinking a foam/glass sandwich, a'la surfboards, is the ticket for a large enclosure.  I can use the EPS foam sheets and just layer in the glass.  I was also thinking of constructing my own PRs as well. 

Is this enclosure something you’ve seen an example of?... or a concept you came up with?

This 2020 F150 for the trip home has been pretty fun. Solid interior and the EcoBoost isn't that bad. Not going to lie, it's leaving me impressed. Not enough to leave my Tundra though.

2.7L or 3.5L?

Not seen anything like it before, but it works for surfboards right?  I've seen people use expanding foam for structure and glass over that, so the EPS should would just the same for flat panels.

I drove a decked out Platinum with the 3.5 and I was really impressed by it.  So much so, that I want to do this swap in my bird.  

The 2.7 has gotten tons of good reviews, but I'd prefer to stick with the 3.5 as it's been proven to take a ton of torture and just keep working.  I haven't seen anyone stressing the 2.7 much and I don't think it will be in use much longer.

A photo I took with my phone.  Could it be a mobile browser thing?

Has some _ in the name perhaps?

I need a new shitter and I'm thinking I need one of them bidet washer seats. 

Brondell or Toto?  Or other and why?

 

Any difference in the throne itself?  Mine is made for midgets and I need a proper height set up. Nordic style. 

Never heard of brondell but have used the toto ones all over the world.  When we remodel we will do the same

The 2.7 is really a beast IMO. You could be right that it will gone at some point but it can really make some power.

That being said, more is better and the 3.5 is King!!!!

Tbh I really liked my brothers when I test drove it. Enough I was like I need to get out of here before I want one. Haha

 Was smooth. Reminded me of my first duramax experience.

I believe most folks have a photobucket account, that allows mobile uploading. If something better hasn’t replaced it. I don’t have one though, so can not vouch 100%.

I know Toto, brondell sounds to be a USA made. 

 

Looked to be half the price for a nicer seat. I'm looking into it but having had a chance to sit in front of my PC. 

 

Hard to research from the phone oddly enough.
