  1. Wider. It’s just to get the vehicle on the wood, not to make a full turn of the wheel . Then you would have a couple more in front of. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. If you have slotted wheels 2X4s and a rope can work wonders. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’ve always had portable gas air compressors in my work truck. They come in all sizes and prices. There are some good electric plug ins too. That being said, if you have a 4WD you really don’t need to lower the air in your tires. Just be light on the take off in the sand. I’ve spent my working life off road and had an air compressor and never lowered the air for sand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. That depends. When ever I buy the first thing I ask is show me your best deals. I generally traded every two years so I look for the best deals. There’s always a vehicle that’s on the lot too long there’re going to deal. If not I take the discount and the bank rate. As far as credit rating, all that takes is paying your obligations on time. I’ve never been under 800, if that’s upsetting to someone so be it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. That’s why I’ll never get rid of my 92 Chevy truck. It’s the basic design I grew up with and advanced just enough for extended ( tune ups ). I love the throttle body design in place of the carburetor. All the stuff you can work on without expensive equipment and basic knowledge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My brother in law routinely puts 300K on his. His wife goes 200K he gets it and puts another 100K. He just bought his 4Th, never buys them new, usually 2 years old. Anxious to see how this one does. His first one with cylinder deactivation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. My son had 2 with similar issues. Some people have been fixed with ground problems. My sons were never fix. He got rid of with great loss. The same old couldn’t duplicate even with video showing events. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I was told to do the fluid exchange on my wife’s car at the dealer and fuel system flush at the dealer. I knew what the manual said about the fuel system and passed on that. The transmission was early according to the manual. They claimed severe schedule do to Texas heat. Being under warranty I relented and went with the transmission service. Didn’t want an excuse for them to deny if there was a problem. I was able to observe the fluid change. They pulled a plug on the bottom of the transmission and filled up to a plug half way up. No pan drop, no converter drain, 150$ later that was their service. What a scam. Read the manual, do a little research, make your decision. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. With some of the vehicles I’ve owned, it says in the owners manual, fuel system additive not needed with top tier fuel. That goes for the expensive dealer cleaning also. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. T1 6.2 letdown?

    I would venture to say in most cases people have noticed over the years the need to plant your foot to get your vehicle moving isn’t required like in years gone by. I haven’t owned a vehicle in awhile that if I did my traction control light would flash. In this example it appears the best launch won regardless of horsepower. Unless you’re pulling or putting bigger tires on the bigger engines aren’t needed unless for bragging rights. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So you would tackle an engine rebuild and not a rear end re-gear interesting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. One of the first things I learned was gear swapping, pretty straight forward. Especially with the internet. Ford nine inch was really simple. If a person cant learn gear swapping I wouldn’t try anything else. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Gearing change is probably the easiest weekend mod to do. If you have the tools. You can get almost as much seat of the pants feel as a super charger. Much easier than changing headers and exhaust. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I bought one later as a toy. I welded the spider gears, put a 4 barrel carb on it and a shift kit. The body started to rip apart, it was fun for awhile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Like that one but red. It had a 231 V6. I did sneak it out and put duals on it. Our first non V-8. My toy at the time was a 74 impala 454, 700r4, 373. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
