    Wish list for new truck

    what a swing out tool box? Found some over the fender unit that mount in the bed and swing our, is that what your speaking about. Me I like a rear mount tailgate with a tire rack that swing out or down out of the way to access the bed.

    Using antifreeze?

    getting the truck back this week, new head gasket, o-rings, valve job, repaired crack head, new studs, and new inters for the lower turbine. Sad $$$$, as I want to trade it off. now we into this repairs, two Vp44 and two transmission rebuilds, in 150,000 miles. Wife call it the lemon. I think it be the last Dodge we own.

    Article that's really good

    I am running a 200 AMP alternator, ; I haven't had any issue with 120/140 amp protection. this higher output alternator charges my Odyssey PC2150 Battery consistently above the 14 volt minium the manufacturer of the battery recommends. I could find a the 140 fuse locately when I blew one in the past changing the alternator with removing the positive lead from the battery. Hence I have the 120 in there, I was considering using a 200 amp resettable, it my tool box, but have decide if I really need it. I can't remember does the battery charge ahead of the fuse or after it. As I running a 12000 pound winch occasional direct from the battery.

    Using antifreeze?

    the leak gotten worst; It coming from the passenger side number 1 cylinder stud bolt near the thermastat housing leaking down the front of the engine and across the head to block interface, it could leaking there too, it difficult to tell.
