    Sounds like you have a Jeep... what kind?

    I consider theft of a gas can a fairly faint worry, since I'm usually sleeping right next to the Jeep... :) I'll third the notion of not wanting to...

    You probably got passed by a 6-speed running in 5th... The overdrive ratio in the auto is not so good, and dropping to 4th with 5.13's is going to get you more speed, but at like 4500 RPM's, so...

    BLD works on both axles, and is really just brake traction control, so it doesn't care what's in the diffs. The rear LSD you have just means that it takes less brake pressure to move torque to the...

    I wheeled in an "overlanding" style for years with open diffs. I occasionally had to choose a better line, but can't think of any situations where I was hopelessly stuck wishing I had lockers. ...

    I'm not sure how the aftermarket ones work, but I made a set for my old Chevy with some hardware store hooks. If you use a stiff short spring on the bottom, you can hook them up when you need them...

    Nice Doc! I trimmed down my table a long time ago to fit the panel location and took the brackets off the ceiling. Like the edges on your 5/8 ply though... Might have to do that! Did you find...

    If you need more and can't figure out where to get them from, you might try using a standard carriage bolt. You may need to flatten the dome on the head a little to get it to fit, but the square...

    Find out what "Relay #5" does. Sounds like it may be the fuel pump relay... If that's the case, and it's shutting off, I believe there is an oil pressure sender that may be flaky, and the...

    I think bumper height intakes on trucks are a thing of the past. Since the mid-90's, GM has their intake level near the top of the fender as far as I've seen. I haven't looked at a Dodge since...

    With both tires going around the same time, I'd also point to them getting too hot. Damage to the 2nd tire may have actually been done the previous day. Did you by chance notice that they were...

    I put the older Nitrochargers on the front Saturday. Just compressing and letting them extend showed a noticeable difference, and sure enough, the front is much less harsh now. If I could find...

    Ok, time for a 7 month update... I moved to Farmington NM since installing these shocks, and was able to figure out that they are somewhat temperature dependent... It temps above about 55F, they...

    The BEST way to do it is with someone's "zero rate add-a leaf" kit, which is basically lift blocks that you bolt to the spring with a new longer centering pin. (Google it...) That way they can't...

    Check my Hallmark thread in my sig. I had the same sagging and rot problems at the jack mounts. I moved the brackets inboard a bit after replacing the underside plywood on the pass side and...

    They can limit airflow at times, but the computer will compensate pretty well. Keep your factory air restriction indicator in place. If it pegs out in the red all the time, you know you have too...

    Might be a cheaper solution than JBA UCA's... I just put some 1 degree camber shims in the fiancee's Liberty. That allowed the cams to be used to dial in more caster. It's only about .75" taller...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the hubs from a 5200lb axle are not going to fit on the 6000lb axle that the 1101/2 use. Generally, the bearings are larger as you go up Dexter's load ratings, and they match...

    How about instead of completely removable, you make it more like the M101 tongue, which is intended to unpin from under the trailer and fold up against the front of the trailer I think. The legs of...

    If you have a left or right pull, and went to the same shop 3 times for an alignment, and it STILL has the same pull, you are a VERY good customer! :)

    The trouble with alignments is nobody checks...

    I just bought two from Texas as well. My plan is make brush fire trailers out of them and see if they'll sell... Perhaps not to FD's, but to ranchers and mountain home owners? Dunno. :)

    What I see all looks like 1/2 ton stuff. Ideally a 3/4 ton truck would have eight lug hubs and three springs on the front, but some only had two, and some 1/2 tons had three. (Plow package and...

    I suppose this is an option, but not a cheap one, as they'd have to first fill most of the 8-lug holes, then drill the 6-lug holes in both the drums and the hubs. But it could be done I suppose. ...

    8 to 6 lug spacer/adapters exist, but they're spendy, and 2-piece. No hubs are available to convert the military axle. You can buy a standard axle with 6-lug hubs and hydraulic brakes, but not with...
