Re: Why has AEV turned to such shit?

My method does vary. I tried air bags, back in 2000 on our Dakota. They were good for 1 yr. Then they leaked. Fixed them. Good for 8 mos. They leaked again. Fixed them. Good for 8 mos, then they leaked again & left me stranded with a load while on vacation. Bought a tiny 12v air pump & put air in th...

Re: Ridgid dual 18v compressor FYI

Yeah, I got like 6- 4ah & 1-5ah & 4-2ah batteries. Gonna try to get another 5ah one this Holiday season. Then I can use those for the compressor, as it uses the most juice of anything I have. Even more than the recip & circular saws. Yes, it should have had a detachable wall plug.

Re: New "Yoda in our future......New vehicle Pics ! New tires.

Also went back to Verizon today, for the 3rd time since getting the new S8+. Got the Otterbox (slimmer one) at time of purchase.The screen protector fell off 2x.

Re: Why has AEV turned to such shit?

Howdy, just out of curiosity... How much effect on articulation does the 4 leaf-1 ton helper springs have? I currently tow a max of 7700 LBs but with gear and stuff in the truck I'm probably pushing the weight limit a bit. The helper springs would be a great addition if they don't hose the off road...

No, you weren't. Amsoil is a GREAT product. It was an inherent problem with those GM engines---NOT the oil. It is stories "like that" that do the damage to a brand. I have used Amsoil myself, with no issues. Many people BLAME "oil-x", if it will take blame off the Manufacturer---even though there is...

Fact: There is no shortage of people to give good or bad reviews on just about everything. Dealers have a zillion ways to void any lifetime warranty. My lifetime powertrain warranty states it has to be brought in every 5 years & inspected for fluid leaks. Failure to do so voids the warranty. Also st...

When I actually make them up for the 4Runner & the Power Wagon, I will use the ARB threaded socket plug & hard mount them. I will post...

Most are pretty single minded thinking when it comes to a Power Wagon. I can't tell you how many times other campers have said to me "if your gonna tow-why on earth would you buy a Power Wagon?"
