    Travel trailer got vandalized

    I’m sorry you was violated glad it was minor. The cargo doors are false security. Everyone reading this grab your trailer keys I bet a cold coke you have a Ch751 key for compartment door. Also they have master key for door easy to get I have two from transport days can buy online for around $45 you can buy a key ring with one of every key for Rv most trailer doors are fic locks.

    No 4WD

    Permanent fix is vacuum eliminate by six states distributors it works like pto shift cable. Check vacuum lines on crossmember they can have leaks there.

    Let's make a difference....

    Just reading this thread brings up so many memories I remember the Idaho bomb parties and dyno days.(crazy to think Idaho had followers and hosted parties) I met rip and Vaughn at an older farmers party, I remember the nice gentleman believe his name was Jim he had the airplane hanger shop, there was definitely a Brotherhood and following I've learned so much through reading and posting on this forum, I remember a young man named Jeff had a jeep was welcomed into the group and loved it, I met Hoss racing the red rocket at firebird in Idaho, I kinda miss the good old days when it would take you couple hours to read through the post, I've never made it to the "big parties in Northwest" still lucky at the people I've met along the way. Fram filters brings memories my first diesel i was scared to death of within a year i wasn't afraid to ask few questions and get into it. back in the day we didn't have google we actually asked people who knew and engaged now its google and go to repair. I get the free work crowd and the curious wanting to learn guys its hard to tell them apart just treat everyone right knowing it all works out and you cant see a rainbow with the rain first.😥

    I acquired another truck

    If its tight and right doesn’t get hot or slip throw a single disc billet converter, shift kit , billet servo and strut service it regularly and enjoy the truck. I did this upgrade in my 97 really made it nice the guy who bought it sends me text telling me how much he loves it truck had 220k when I bought I put 30 k always towing in the mountains. Cost was around 1500 in parts (10 years ago) I did labor

    I can find complete trucks in my area seen some cheap as $500 not sure logistics to get it to you I could probably drop it by my dads halfway between Caldwell Idaho and Ontario Oregon. If you’re serious I will keep my eyes open and let you know when one comes up. Might be cool to get the bed and make a shop bench with it.

    2012 Ford exhaust emissions stuff

    I would keep it Incase she gets in trouble with emissions police. In Utah if you get three complaints on a vehicle then you have to take it in and prove it’s emmi compliance to keep it licensed. Bunch of crap

    The new setup

    Sorry to hear this terrible some people. I’ve heard of uhaul having problems with people drilling fuel tanks to steal gas. Guess this is case of remove warning labels and some problems will fix themselves.
