    I am surprised that no one has yet mentioned that the lid for the bucket is another $29.99!

    SAE rating for alternator

    Ford gives my 2019 Superduty an alternator rating of 377Amps (dual alternators). Is that the actual ISO or SAE rating? If not, how would I find that? And at what RPM? Thanks in advance

    Safety concerns of global trips

    I have driven about 6 months in South America, 3 months in Southern Africa. Those gigantic rigs look ridiculous and are mostly unnecessary. You could just rent a SUV and stay in various lodging and feel totally comfortable. Second, after 5-6 weeks in Colombia I am convinced that a traffic...

    Bonding sheet aluminum to composite Panels?

    I think I would add wood flour to any boat building epoxy until you reach your desired consistency and spread with a 1/8" notched trowel. Research surface prep on the aluminum. Sand, clean, then possibly a primer.

    Solenoid Air Control Valve

    "Barksdale Height Control Valve on each side with dump"...Looks good, do you have the part number? There are a few on their website. How about the part number for the solenoid you used? Terrific idea, thanks.

    Solenoid Air Control Valve

    No, I have been using a tire pressure gauge, bleeding by hand. That's why I need to relocate the Schraders or, preferably, automate it. I both want to use my compressor to air up frequently, as well as "flip a switch and forget about it", provided it is not above my pay grade.

    Differential Expert Advice

    Hmmm, seems to me that there must be MILLIONS of cars with mis-matched tires driving all over the U.S. Or are they much less than 5% diff in diameter?

    Differential Expert Advice

    The clowns who installed my Carli lift and Toyo tires can't follow their own work order...installing four Toyo AT2 35x12.5R18 F Load tires instead of five, to replace my LT275/70Rx18E BSW A/T's on the factory 18" rims. So in the event of a flat my spare will be traveling 5% less far than the...

    Ordering an F350 - need advice

    Wheel well liners are supposed to make gravel roads quieter. I ordered them on my 2019 but just got delivery, so can't testify to that.
