Wenatchee to Tukwila

04 March 2018 - 09:30 PM

Don't know if you all know or not, Marla and I moved to Wenatchee last year. I'm still working in Tukwila and make the trip 4-5 times a month. I'd be more then happy to Bomber Express things if needed.

This site has meant a lot to me over the years. The people, the friends, the BOMB parties and the site have been great. Pay it forward. 😎

Michelin Defender LTX

Just put some new tires on my truck and if someone is looking for a set, I'll make a Bomber deal. Otherwise, I'll cram them in the garage until the spring/summer.

They are 285/65/20, great ride, good mpg, great rain tire and ok in the snow. They are M/S rated, but they are a highway tire. They came with a 50k warranty, less then a year old and maybe 10k on them, I'll verify tomorrow.

I'm going over Blewett and Snoqulmie 4-5 times a month round trip and needed a better snow tire. That is the only reason these are for sale! Space is tight, paid over 1100 and will sell for 400.

PM or give me a call or text.

Thanks - Marty

Suspension Upgrade

18 December 2017 - 12:55 PM

Since we moved to Wenatchee, I have had my truck off road a lot more then when we lived on the west side. I'm not going crazy, but just going on fire roads and exploring a bit and if I wanted to really hit it, I wouldn't be doing it in  3/4 ton truck! The stock suspension really isn't cutting it, in fact it is terrible!

 

So I've been looking at Carli, Thuren, AEV and BDS. From what I've found, BDS is more along the lines of a lift kit, not what I'm looking for. AEV allows you to run big ass tires, but not much else. Thuren has an amazing reputation and suspension systems (not lift kits) but in their own words, you end with a 1/2 ton capacity in the rear. It's not that I'm hauling tons of stuff or towing, but I don't want to give the capability up. 

 

That leaves Carli, true suspension system. They address the load/towing issue, you loose some, but not as dramatic of a loss as the Thuren. Their kits are pretty interesting, all three complete systems are essentially the same hardware and amount of lift, 3". The difference in them is the shocks, Fox, Fox with reservoirs and King. Holy cow the Kings are spendy!!!

 

What do you think? Anyone have any first hand experience with Carli?

2004 Ford Ranger XLT

My "adopted" parents are selling their little truck. He's 87 and can't drive anymore.

It only has 49k miles on it! XLT, 4x4, Auto. Only negatives are a couple of minor dings on the right side, actually more then a ding, less then a dent.

I'll send pics if anyone is interested.

Did you see it has less then 50k on it? :)
