  1. Apparently I drove from Longview to Eugene with that can of carb cleaner on the bumper of my camper. That was about 220 miles at speeds of 70 mph. I can’t believe it stayed there the whole time. It appeared to not move at all.[emoji1787]. No wonder I didn’t have many tailgaters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. Also for those of you with kids and are driving rigs you care about you may want to look into this system with droid option. I would if I had kids. PS I'm so glad they didn't have this when I was a kid. Geo Fencing would have got me busted every weekend almost. Oh and a speed report. I would have been grounded until now.... LOL

  6. It has always been a running joke since we built this house that i would shoot a deer or elk from the porch. It is no longer a joke. Late buck season ended in western Washington on Sunday for hunters and this guy. He was the middle sized of the five or six i watched for months. After spending days out in the cold and rain, i'm eating ice cream in the kitchen when i see a horizontal line that didn't belong where it was. Grab the binocs and sure enough, right in the spot I've seen him countless times before, he's standing back in the trees eating. The hornady 300gr sst 12 gauge slug did its j

  9. Went for a cabin fever ride Sunday , towards the west up a Sierra rural mountain pass ( highway 88) .. just a few feet higher than we are up to a bit over 8000 ft., tons of snow and freshly dropped, plows had just been both ways , fresh snow and a beautiful ride. All total we drove a couple hundred miles in the mountains , such beauty . of course the truck looks like he ll , but we enjoyed it much .

  15. I swapped my Red Head for the PSC, huge difference, way less flex in the box itself. I also removed the steering brace and did not put it back on. Makes a difference when you go from a mini van steering box to an actually truck box.

  16. Verified with Dorman that the part does not fit, that it is fact miscatagorized. The person there said that it looks like the redesign happened for model year 1997. The long and short of it appears that if you have a pre-97 2nd Gen that you're likely not going to be able to get a new linkage. Solution might be to also replace the wiper motor with a 97-02 one. Forum member gearhead welded up the passenger linkage piece to the shaft and it's as good, no, BETTER than new! THANK YOU!

  20. We were 40 miles East of Eugene, camping just for the weekend. We went to check out so dirty, nasty hot springs. There were a bunch of naked girls running around. That was nice. Also a couple dudes.... could have done without that.

  21. ah Marty's Bronco just blended in with the rest of them you know.. Bright yellow, white top. Everything in show room condition. They were everywhere......😏 Vaughn, if heat is a concern you could cerma coat it. I was actually thinking powder caoting it until you mentioned a heat concern. And yes the 2nd Gens have become a kids favorite, unfortunately, that includes kids turning them into their Honda dream car. More money spent on wheels than anything... Unit bearing just waiting to give up and flip the truck...

  22. Oh man MSquare you let a 69 Bronco go?? just had to pile on too lol Paul yeah the 4x4 shifter came up missing a long time ago, haha...I do want to put something on the outside of the air cleaner housing because it really picks up the heat from the turbo and exhaust. Planning to wrap that in the near future but I'm thinking about doing a set of compounds, putting a S475 under that Garrett. Woodenhead looking online and Youtube there almost seems to be a resurgence in 2nd Gens. There's quite a few young guys buying them and turning them into impressive rigs. 2nd Gens

  23. Got our first dump of the season sometime after midnight , got about 3” on the ground. i wouldn’t go driving this AM for all the money in Ft. Knox .. it’s rookie season and all the dumb azzes that can’t remember how to drive in it , still tailgating and driving way to fast as if it were dry roads . First wet of any kind in well over 9 months so all the road oils will be just under the snow to boot . A good day to finish the great stew Momma made last night .

  24. That’s for sure! We’ve been getting a mix of heavy snow then melting then rain then wind then freezing rain and more snow. This week the rollercoaster starts with flurries then 45F then rain...etc etc

  30. Your steering box is larger still than the 3rd gen boxes. With 37’s hard up against a curb, we saw .007-.010 flex at nose of frame on my 18. This is with bumper removed.

  32. A brace isn’t a bad thing to do anyway . The box does put some flexing on all years especially if one has oversized tires , the brace cures the flex and gives a more solid steering and therefore handling too i’ll probably be adding to my ‘18 also I’ve had it on two trucks and think it well worth the 0price of poker ...one man’s opinion 😁

  33. Well I do have a set of 17” steels on mine right now. I’m pretty bad about rotating and only put about 3-4K miles on each year anyway.

  34. Whoops, yes, we did find one!! Sorry I forgot to delete this, but I'll respond before I do. It's for a '92, not mine, and I guess the disc brakes won't work. The '92 has broken TWO Dana 70's (I've never even done that, lol) so it's time.

  42. The plan for our Hummer h3 has been to set it up to tow behind our truck/camper. I got a great deal on a tow bar and brake unit, but needed the brackets for the Hummer. I looked at a few and for over $400, I figured I can do it myself. Made frame reinforcement brackets and new front tow hook mounts to replace the factory ones, these will also hook up to the Towmaster Sterling tow bar and winch mount. The top of the brackets are for mounting a winch plate

  50. I would recommend anyone who hasn't changed their tappet cover gasket in thr last 100k miles should do so when replacing the VP44, as well as the cam position sensor if over say 200k miles. Last year my tappet gasket was totally failed at 170k and I had to pull my perfectly good VP44 out to do it. I also replaced the cam & crank sensors, modified the blowby hose while the tappet cover was out, and installed Larry B contacts in the starter. Turned into a pretty major maintenance project!
