I was going to suggest the potato! (Also tongue in cheek) lol My mum had that done to her by her best friends brother when she was young. He never did it to her again. 😁
I need to find a potato!
@dustybiker Yes, I had a neighbor that had a volkswagen Karmen Ghia. it had dual exhaust so I stuck two potatoes up his exhaust. He could not get it started.
OMG! YES! YES! DO THAT!
Do what Eddie Murphy did! Put a banana in his tail pipe!
We are in Minnesota 🤣 still sucks. 😒
I know you are in cold weather, but it is still a moron thing to do! Move it away from your house so it does not wake you when they start and run it!

Yeah he’s wanting the trucked warmed up enough for the heater to blow hot but really how long does it take before it wakes you up? I’d guess it wakes when he starts it then the running for thirty minutes makes you mad and you can’t fall back to sleep this is a tough one maybe you guys could go in on some bushes or a fence to help or both or perhaps sleep with some music playing might help you not to notice the truck but be quiet enough so you can hear your alarm cause getting mad and confronting him will only make things worse he could cut down the time he lets it warm up but I doubt that will help much
Should I? When it wakes us all up? Never had this issue before they moved in.
Is it a real shit box truck or does he have a tricked out machine with duel exhausts? There are noise requirements to get a state inspection sticker (in the state where I live anyway) and if his truck exceeds a certain number of decibels the cops can write him up.
It’s a real shit box truck
It probably has a broken exhaust system then
RE Update": I do not know how far you want to take this. After you go the nice route and ask him not to wake you up with his truck you can take it to the local police. They may pay him a visit and try to talk some sense into him. If he waited until 6AM would that be okay? There is a gravel pit in my town and they used to start at 5AM and so many people complained they don't start their trucks until 6 o'clock.
Pretty sure that noise ordinances do not allow that noise at 5 AM. Get the police to get him to knock it off.
Super loud. It is bad.
Well, a lot of places have noise ordinances. If it's above a certain level, maybe you can call the cops and file a complaint. But if he has a legal working exhaust on the truck there isn't anything you can do about it.
The definition of loud can varies for everyone. if he's doing nothing else wrong and for the most part is a decent neighbor then stop your whining. could extremely worse as in throwing parties all the time etc.
@adidas0169 Yes, the definition of loud can vary. So can the definition of early.When I was building houses, we'd start work early because it was breaking 100 degrees by 10:00AM. We've had the cops called on us before when we were building at 6:00AM on Saturday morning. The cops would ask if we could quiet down. We'd tell them no. Then they'd walk away because there was nothing they could do about it.
there's a difference of getting up and going to work and working on someone's property. one last for hrs and the other doesn't. how about this why not walk over to the neighbors house and actually have a adult conversation or just deal with it bc some of us have to get before everyone else and go to work.
So fuckin loud ugghhh
Oh yeah, he likes to rev that engine a lot, too. Fortunately he does THAT in the daytime.During the day I can look and say, "Yeah, Nissan Skyline. Classic. Great race car."I don't want to at 3am.
If you gave me the year and make/model of the truck and tell me how loud it is I can tell you how fucked it is.Dad was a mechanic and he and I still fuck around with cars.Your average sedan has an engine size between 200-300 CID. Your average pickup is between 250-350 because they usually have a lot more horsepower than a car. Having said that, it shouldn't be too crazy loud if it has the right parts.
@InventorofWarp I would guess that he has modified the exhaust to make it loud because that's the only attention he gets.
Pray that he gets a electric truck soon. In the mean time put some water in his gas tank.
I know right? 😒😒😒
@loves2learn mine does the exact same thing at 5am, he's across the street and runs his diesel 4x4 for 20 friggin minutes every morning. 😠
Yup! My predicament exactly. 😐
