  1. ebay is where I've found them.
  2. I'm trying to partially restore my fog lights to the OEM style mounts and install OEM replacement Morimoto fogs. I had installed Rigid SAE fogs several years back. The mount has failed and one has fallen out. Both Rigid fogs have yellowed and crazed lenses. I'm in need of the adjusters as I disposed of the original fogs along with the adjusters. If anyone knows where I can find these without having to buy a set of OEM fogs, I'd appreciate a reference.
  3. Best inexpensive torque wrench

    I have the Craftsman I bought about 6=7 years ago. I have the big one and the smaller inch pound wrench. Both are still working. I also have a Proto inch pound wrench that goes to 300 inch/lbs. Frankly, I think the Craftsman is just ok and I think they have gone off to China for their tools. I wouldn't get another. If you want US made, Grainger has the Proto 150 ft/lb for $200. Airgas.com has Stanley/Proto for a bit less. Amazon is the better deal for a Proto for the 150 ft/lb 1/2" drive @ $144 https://www.amazon.com/Proto-J6016C-Ratcheting-Micrometer-30-150-Feet/dp/B002GQNHHE/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1550497051&sr=8-7&keywords=proto+torque+wrench
  4. FOR SALE set of headlights from my 2014 Sierra SLT (All Terrain) that have the OEM LED DRL strips. I also have a Morimoto HID (bulb replacement) kit with the ballasts and harness that go with the headlights. No damage to the mounting tabs as these were my OEM lights, not salvage yard stuff. Good condition lenses, normal use for 2-3 years. $400 OBO These have to go. Will Ship
  5. Over the decades, I've loaded a number of different HP bullets and bought a bunch of factory stuff. Most of the popular HP stuff has had countless gel and other media tests and many have been proven in LEO service. I think it'd be hard to go wrong with the mainstream namebrands. I think I still have some "Black Talon" stuff around and I know I have the name change only stuff that was forced by the hysteria over that brand. The hysteria over that stuff pretty much made it a bad idea to use it in your HD gun after that. I think most of us just shot it up and moved to the next HP high tech ammo. I may be mistaken, but I think the early Hi-Shok Federal stuff was Sierra HP bullets. I would occasionally have misfeeds in some stock guns (1911s) with that stuff and that caused me to favor more rounded HP bullets as opposed to the truncated shape of the Sierra.
  6. 2019 Blazer - HOT OR NOT

    If it didn't have badges, I would have guessed it was a Toyota.
  7. Tint Question

    Old thread from the near dead.... I made an appointment for 3m Crystalline on the front sides and full windshield. California now allows 70% front sides and full windshield 90% with a doctor's authorization. That's what I'm getting. I haven't had skin cancer, but I have plenty of sun spots and have had some scabby areas on my left temple. No more procrastinating on the UV protection. Don't care about dark. I have enough trouble seeing at night.
  8. Since the earlier trucks were brought into this discussion...my 99 1/2 GMT800 2500 went about 110k before the left front bearing slowly failed. I sold my 2008 1500 to my brother with 140k and it was fine. My 2014 1500 has 65k and no signs of bearing problems. IMO, ball and roller bearing failures of any kind are difficult to diagnose most of the time. Especially a sealed bearing. But a sealed bearing has only a finite amount of grease it uses and sooner or later that grease gets to a point where its lubricating ability is below what is necessary, no matter how good the bearing is made. The quality and quantity of grease has as much to do with the bearing longetivity as the bearing itself, IMO. The other thing I noted on my trucks was that I could not hear a bearing in the early to mid stages of failure with off-road tires, since the noise frequency is similar. The bearing had to be pretty loose before I could tell. And my experience with the GMT800 was that it took place over more than several thousand miles.
  9. Wix 57045 vs 10255

    I have been using a super large set of channel lock pliers. So I never noticed the problem. Looks like I have to buy some 10255xp filters. I may be able to use the 57045 filters in my SS Camaro.
  10. Wix 57045 vs 10255

    I have a few 57045xp filters in my garage. Anyone see a downside to continuing to use them?
  11. I went with a clear bra film of about the same coverage area as those shown, maybe a bit more. It also covers the painted grill and bumper. I've been pleased with it after 60k.
  12. 14 no heated seats

    If the lights work, check for power at the connector under the seat. If there's power, it's likely the heater itself. I can't recall the last time I used my heaters, being in socal. But I do get to colder climates occasionally during the year. I'm going to find out if my heaters work soon.
  13. No better forum pastime than helping someone spend money.
  14. Possible, but likely incredibly complex and expensive. Probably a complete engine/trans package with ECM/TCM out of a 10 speed truck would be the most direct path. Not sure what a 10 speed would cost new. The 8 speed is about $4k new online, without TCM, harness, etc.. A new truck would be more economically viable.
  15. Can a Sierra1500 be towed

    Drive it or ship it, IMO.
