  1. Desktop, Laptop, or what?

    So, I think I've decided on a case, Fractal Design Meshify C. I'm still undecided on mobo and CPU. I'm considering waiting longer to buy, due to price drops when Ryzen 2 is released. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  2. Marketing AWD and 4WD Systems

    IIRC, the more severe cases were 2005-2009. My understanding is the rear end alignment usually caused the issue. I have driven 2013+ with CVT's on some really slick ice and not had any issues. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  3. Marketing AWD and 4WD Systems

    The "intelligent" subaru awd is actually 3 or so different systems depending on transmission and model. I have driven 2 extensively and really liked them. You can get a lot out of them if you disable all the nannies. I like the functionality of AutoTrac. But now that I have snow rated tires and a TruTrac diff, I never use it.

  4. The torsion bars aren't what wears out the front end. It's the front end permanently being at extreme angles. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  5. Had a $10 caddy thing sitting there in my 1990. It worked great for holding stuff. 2006 has a console. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  6. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    I have yet to even draw mine down enough for the pickup to cut off acc mode. It seems to crank better in the cold than most. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  7. I have towed with 6.2 and 6.0. I like the frame and body of the GM more. The 6.0 can take some real abuse. I do not like the solid front axle on the Ford. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  8. diesel for 19

  9. If all you care about is rattles and squeaks, sure. The maintenance and repairs on a GMT800 are crazy simple. Ever changed your headlight bulbs? Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  10. My vote is change all of them. The price sounds a bit high, though, but that might depend on location. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  11. Above, and or snow rated tires. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  12. Same on my 2006, lol. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  13. Desktop, Laptop, or what?

    Update! Just got an Asus GTX 1060 OC Ti 6GB, a 650W psu, and a Samsung Evo 850 SSD. Based off what I've seen so far, the old 3ghz Pentium dual core will not do the heavy lifting I want it to. I've decided to forego getting a new Xbox, since the only newer games I'm interested in are single player. 4 years ago, Halo would have tied me to the Xbox, but H5 was a sorry excuse for a game, so I have no reason to stay on console. Next up is to pick out a case, mobo(leaning MSI), and grab a processor and some RAM. I'm considering going liquid cooled, but not set on that yet. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  14. Reports: GM To Use Carbon Fiber In Truck Beds

    I think everyone understands the differences. I have seen fiberglass and carbon fiber sheets laid up together. The glass will potentially provide some extra impact resistance. I would assume composites for automotive use are vacuum bagged, due to the weight savings, which isn't as much of a concern in boats. One time we played with a Kevlar/glass/carbon mix, just for giggles. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  15. Reports: GM To Use Carbon Fiber In Truck Beds

    On the duallies as well. I have nothing bad to say about composite body panels. I have seen "homemade" carbon fiber / fiberglass panels take nasty hits. They don't corrode or rust, and bounce back from most impacts. I have been guessing and hoping composite panels are the way GM has been going, based on their willingness to bash aluminum (however childish). The floor wouldn't be where I'd start, but whatever.
