New rims and tires

After two warranty replacements and three attempts to balance a set of Continental tires I decide to get new wheels and tires. Cooper AT3 XLT's and a set of American racing AR172, black. So far without adjusting the air perssure they ride nice, will do a chalk test tomorrow to find the ultimate pres...

Re: Death wobble to spot on

That's good to hear! I'm going to order the SynergyMFG steering kit for my CTD, I hope it works as well as yours did! My truck is all over the road even with a new Carli track bar.

Re: Tow/Haul Mode in the Back Country

Keeps the trans fluid cooler by keeping the TC locked up more, but it will decrease your fuel mileage because of later shifts to higher gears.

Re: offroad gimbal mounts for action cams like gopro?

A gimbal mount will not keep the image stable if you are bouncing down the path. Gimbals only help with roll, pitch and yaw movement, not up and down and it needs some kind of dampening or it will just rock and roll all over the place. You need image stabilization.

Re: Fire Extinguisher

I have a 5 lb carbon dioxide extinguisher right at the tailgate of my truck but am considering one of these https://elementfire.com/products/element-e50 for my camping trailer. This is an old dry chemical I had at one time, same location as the new co2 one now. http://photocamel.com/gallery/data/615...

Re: Antifreeze smell

Head gasket is a culprit for sure. Had that issue with a LR Discovery. Always a smell and never any evidence. Definitely curious as others seem to have similar issues. That's what I though too with my truck loosing coolant for years but it turned out to be a cracked radiator end. Too small to see a...

Re: Antifreeze smell

My truck was loosing a bit of coolantfor years, no idea where or how, no detectable leaks anywhere. Finally one day I saw a small puddle of coolant on the road, it was a cracked radiator end. Replaced the radiator with an all aluminum one. No more coolant loss.

Re: 2013+ truck steering nut recall?

My 06 CTD has that same problem. Every time I do a rough off road ride I have to recenter the steering wheel. I figgured it was the threads jumping but happens so infrequently that I just recenter when needed. I don't want to hve to take the front end apart to fix it! But maybe I should, would hate ...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

60pis tire pressure? Get your truck weighed (front and rear seperatly) and set the tire perssure according to the load table for your tires. I have 315/70/17 on my Dodge diesel and run 35 front 32 rear,no bouncing, very nice ride for a 3/4 ton truck!

I juat have a 5 gal walmart yellow jug in the front of my truck bed with one of those spills allover spouts nearby. My truck is diesel so the container is not as critical as with gasoline. 8-)
I do have a one gallon rotopax for gasoline on the back of my dirt bike.

Re: New motorcycle

I traded a very nice BMW1100 for my dual purpose bike. The roads are getting too dangerous now days. Seems like no one even stops at stop signs anymore! And for sure turn signals might as well not be installed on most cars as no one seems to use them except me.
