Re: 50 Years of Subie-Doo

You don't make anything but the best in anniversary trim. That's how this works.

The only color more conservative is grey. That's barely blue at all.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

JK windshields are flat-out not meant to be folded down. I don't care what Jeep has to say. Ive folded dozens to replace bad seals and its been a pain each time. Jeep would have been better off just having a stationary windshield. Hopefully the JL isn't nearly as bad In terms of water leaks that hap...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Been there, done that. We collectively prefer the kayaks. The canoe is also just too damn inconvenient to deal with. Its too wide to fit on my roof racks, so I either need to make extensions or continue to transport it on the trailer. We bring it out once a year for our major camping trip, and even...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Its tire and wheel shopping time. I always forget how damn expensive these wheel things are until its time to spend the big bucks. Realistically I could wait until spring to buy my summer setup, but if I dont spend the money set aside for car purposes I end up putting it towards something else. Cons...

Re: Warranty Wars

The only thing warranty does is frustrate technicians. There are of course exceptions wherein the tech can make serious money on certain repairs if theyre good enough at them. Take WK/WD 3.6 timing cover reseals or electric steering rack replacements as solid examples.

Re: Honest Engines

Gotta love the Cummins Sure, if you want, but that's not what makes all that towing capacity work. It's Rope-Pusher's ilk working in the suspension , braking , and GCWR arms race departments...with assists from the slushbox department and the tire supplier, encouragement from the marketing departme...

Re: Honest Engines

fifth-wheel trailer towing capacity of 30,000-pounds. That will save some customers with large trailers from having to move up to a Class 4 or 5 truck. Also: "Ram 3500 Heavy Duty maximum gooseneck and conventional hitch maximum trailer weight ratings for 2018 are 31,210 lbs and 20,000 lbs., re...
