    Check the tires. If the tires are cupped or jagged due to lack of rotations, they can give a faux death wobble going down hill and hitting a bump. Or down a ramp coasting. Good shocks can...

    Optimas ain't what the used to be.

    Just get an Ac Delco or Napa battery. Try to get a model with removable caps to check the fluid level, or at least a built in hydrometer eye. Maintianing...

    I run plain old lead acid batteries. Any battery over 3 years old is a gamble. All my life safety engines get their batteries changed every 24 months. It's the only way to be 90% sure, even...

    A leveling kit is an easy way to fit 35" tires on a Ford Superduty. I prefer Carli's kits that are a compplete system, not just a cheap level or lift kit.

    Wonder what the real pricing on dealer lots is going to look like.

    The Acadia and Envoy are both well over $35,000 around here.
  6. Dodge oops. Should have recalled that pitman arm after all.

    That's going to cost more than a dollar.:Wow1:

    Yeah, you're going to have room for tons of expo gear with 8 people, seated in complete misery, in a SUV. You can seat 6 people, in complete misery, in a CC LB. That's plenty. Tell the rest to...

    You must be thinking of how Lockrite, Powertrax, or Aussie lockers work. Detroits are fine on pavement. All the weight in the world isn't going to make much of a difference IME. The outer side...

    The Detroit Locker,Yukon Locker, and Truetrac are good to go for towing and heavy use IME.

    Mind your air pressures though, keep them equal on the street.

    It might be worthwhile to look into the Titan and a leased, turned in, F150 as well.

    Fords are more expensive, they're supposed to be. 39,000 would open up your budget to them, though.

    With proper vehicle setup the Cooper STT's are the best tires I've ever run.

    But if you cut corners on your ride, like for example, no locker in the rear, they just can't overcome that. A rear...

    I use heavier material hiking rain jackets and pants for rain gear. Heavier than the ultra light stuff that just tear in the wind. In warm weather I don't bother with rain gear. I just get wet.

    Re-evaluate the trailer. A little enclosed lawn care trailer hauls sportbikes in safety, and plenty of room for more gear.

    You have my permission to slap that guy silly. 30mpg in a fullsize is complete BS.

    My Mustang doesn't get that. And it's just a little car.

    Goodyear Duratrac- will wiggle for the first 3000 miles due to extra soft winter compound rubber being really soft until it drys out some. Thick tread blocks add to it.

    Should be more of a tickedy tickedy tick on startup. Perfectly normal. Shouldn't last more than 2 seconds. It's the valve train running before being pumped up with oil. If you're truck has...

    Well, I think you're in luck. My coworker, also a Master Tech, recently removed the DEF and EGR and reflashed the ECM so no Obungo lamp. Sounded easy enough. I'm just glad the aftermarket...

    A bare bones, but still pretty nice, Ram 2500 4x4 is about $35,000 around here. Nice pricing indeed. Can hardly get a little Mustang for that. Ford is at least $41,000 for a similar truck. I...

    No.

    You can pull 12v from your fog lights and use it to power a relays control circuit. Use a Hella 12v relay or similar. The relays coil is very little load, no larger fuse needed. Then...

    That's got to be a used 5.4L. It's $2000 labor to swap long blocks. A reman'd long block Ford 5.4L is $3900. Transmission rebuilds are about $2000. It's so darn expensive, I'd recommend...
