    My buddy had the same reaction to the time his 2.5lb extinguisher lasted... not long. Aim well, pull the trigger. Use it all and make sure the fire is out. If you give it a short blast and...

    Yeah, it depends on your definition of "computer". All of the 80's CJ's and even early YJ's with the 258 that had a "computer controlled" carburetor will run without the computer, just not well...

    Thanks for the kudos!! I looked for a Jeep steering wheel, but I couldn't find one I liked, so I figured having a Chevy engine, it could have a Chevy steering wheel. :)

    Looks to be a very solid truck that just needs a little engine work. ...

    Yeah, if you peek under there, you'll see that both the front and rear springs are on top of the axle already. It's a suburban, not a YJ wrangler. :)

    When they run the $70 rebate, Cooper AT3's in either 235/85R16 or 265/75R16 are fairly good bang for the buck. Fairly cheap in their size bracket, and much less than a 285 or 33" tire. The ATP...

    Oops, my bad, I was thinking about 2500/3500 trucks, which use the 4wd chassis and torsion bars on 2wd trucks as well for hte '00+ trucks. So cranking the bars isn't an option for the OP, since he...

    Yup, whether you lift the body only or the entire chassis, you're still raising the center of gravity, and that does affect handling. A body lift will have slightly less effect than a suspension...

    If you're saying LB vs SB, I've often said when you need a big truck, you need the WHOLE truck. (I went from an ECLB to a CCSB, and I miss the 8' box on occasion.)
