    I'm with you 100% on that. I try to go for the higher end of the available range also.

    My point mainly was (in response to a couple posts prior) that setting of the caster angle is not something...

    Mine has never once been on a rack since I've owned it (and it has many non-stock parts on it too)... Only once did I ever find any unusual tire wear, and it was because of my own screwup (I failed...

    That definitely would make sense in the bigger picture overall, however it doesn't explain why I've seen batteries fail quicker in my own two rides too (the other is a '94 Ranger pickup). I've owned...

    Indeed I've had my share of frustration at alignment places as well. The Ford Twin-Beam front suspension mine has made this especially so, since it seems most mechanics aren't trained well (if at...

    I have to wonder if the recycled lead a lot of batteries are using now due to environmental concerns has something to do with their faster failure rate (leftover contaminants in the lead increasing...

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the 8.8" axle in that rig unless you plan to put some really big tires on it (like 37" or larger), which a 9" is no more up for either without some upgrades to it.

    Not only will more panel better keep up with your fridge, it'll also keep your batteries much healthier.

    Ground points at each corner provides the best ground at RF (only one is needed for electrical (DC) ground however).
