    First oil change on 2018

    Nothing wrong with that. Sounds like you made a call based off of data. Even if they say it can go longer, it sounds like you know the 15k mark is good and are comfortable with it.

    First oil change on 2018

    If anyone ever had any questions about what oil to use, how long to use it etc, etc. Why not get an oil analysis? $28, that's it. https://www.blackstone-labs.com/?session-id=52pgjz454swgee45utfn2255&timeout=20&bslauth&urlbase=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.blackstone-labs.net%2FBstone%2F(S(52pgjz454swgee45utfn2255))%2F This will leave you with no doubt about how long your oil will last and if it is doing a proper job. An extra $28 for a sample or slightly more if you want your oil tested for extended use, is pennies for the knowledge you'll get. I've been testing my Challenger oil and have proof positive the Pennzoil is working fine. Plus I will have an early warning of any future trouble. $28 is well worth my peace of mind.

    Gary’s new truck

    Oof. Sorry to hear that Gary! Maybe with all of that, you got all of your bad luck used up for years to come. Here's to great days ahead my friend!

    I always enjoyed it, the harder I work the more satisfying it seems to be. I just can't do it physically anymore. If I attempted it I would end up in the hospital.

  7. Have fun guys and gals! I got to our family cabin in Minnesota yesterday just as my dad went to the hospital for his ankle. He's ok and on pain meds. Now it's time to get my nitromethane fix at the NHRA races.

  9. You guys keep talking about my bed times like it's morning or something. My schedule has been nothing but constant change over the last 35yrs. Sometimes 3am is bedtime and also wakeup time in the same week. There are times I have to switch back and forth 2-3 times in a week. My wife doesn't know how I do it. I tell her I just do it. The older I get the harder it is though.

    Replaced my "01

    Wow, that is a nice looking rig! Great color too! Congrats.
  13. Just a couple videos from the cruise up St Helens yesterday. I don't know the total vehicle count but it had to be over 200. We had police stopping traffic for us in Tacoma and at Castle Rock.
  14. Uconnect is also simply what the touch screen radio is called. So when you go to pair your phone via bluetooth for example, the car will show up as Uconnect. You can also download radio updates for free online then load them onto a flashdrive and plug it into the car and update the radio firmware, I've done this for our Dart. You get that from a Uconnect website. The Uconnect app itself is like Mark said, pretty worthless in my opinion. I don't want to start my car or open the windows via my phone etc. SiriusXM Guardian is bsically the same as GM's OnStar system. You can call emergency service etc. locate and track your car just like OnStar. Again, not worth paying for in my opinion. I never did activate my free Guardian trial or Uconnect app. I just simply used the SiriusXM radio service with traffic monitoring also. I did pay for that after the trial was over as it is worth it to me. Maybe technically there is more to it but that's it as far as I understand it. https://www.driveuconnect.com/
