Re: Lost my best buddy last night

I had to put down our loyal friend Patches at 16 years old as she had cancer and was in major pain. It really tore me up then and still brings tears to my eyes when I recall her friendship and loyalty. We have a new friend and call her Gidget she isn't even close to the dog Patches was but we love h...

Re: Let's just hope......

I would gladly pay 30% to get an American built PW. I already pay a premium for American built items. I don't ever use the automated checkouts and speak as loud as I can when asked to move to one " I will not participate in a program that is used to replace people"! I have come to vehemently hate th...

Well I have to say the media is at it again.

If we would have protested like that when Obami got elected, we would be called racist, a hate monger, etc, etc.. But it seems ok to do it when the non working americans don't get their way. Funny how that works. We could not have protested even if we wanted to---------know why---------BECAUSE WE H...

Re: H2 wheels and 35" Toyo ATII tires

I don't drive the truck as often as I once did, but yes I do like them. However I will go back to the Yokohama AT-S or similar as I like the on road manners much better than the Toyo.

It depends on high participation numbers to be accurate and useful. I believe this to be an important tool for making election...

Re:

Check your park brake cable and locker as well as ABS wires for being stressed and needing to be extended or rerouted. Also check drive shaft clearance at the skid plate cross brace. I had issues with my wires, park brake cable and drive shaft hitting the cross brace.

Re: Interco Trxus M/T - Thoughts?

I have Toyo AT2's and like them. However I was far happier with the performance and ride of the Yokohoma AT2 tires. So once my Toyo's wear out I'm going back to them. They will however do nothing for my ego.

Re: Camper follies

Rusty there are a ton more downsides! I have a racing buddy who hates his unit but can't seem to sell it. It won't fit most campgrounds and high centers constantly. Has no real basement storage and worst of all it is way over $1500.00 + in monthly payments for 20 years. Not a good plan if you ask me...

Re: Auto Enginuity

You will need to contact them for specific features available for your year. Until I took my truck to them there were no PW features at all. The list is not a list of features it is a list of possible features depending on year make and model. Obviously you cant adjust TPMS if your car doesn't have ...

There is a learning curve but there are videos on YouTube on how to use it. Do a search here and you will find a few threads about it on h...

Re: Tire pressure opinions

I find the chalk method to work the best. I ended up at 42 front and 37 rear on my 2009 no major winch rigging gear and a full tank. You have to do the chalk test when the tires are fairly new though.

I buy direct even if suppliers have the part but Thuren doesn't have it in stock and I have to wait for his next production run. I want to reward the man behind the development and innovation.
