    2020 Silverado 1500 6.2L towing

    I have the 6.0 gasser in my 2018 Silverado 3500 (single rear wheel, single cab, long bed). I run M1 0w40 in my truck in the winter and M1 5w30 Truck and SUV oil in the summer. I used to run RLI, but I now run that in my Honda Accord to help clean out some of the varnish.

    235/45-18 Mastercraft LSR Grand Touring

    I just had an alignment done. Nothing was really off.....a few MINOR adjustments were made. They claimed the Camber isn't adjustable on this Honda (I assume they weren't lying to me, IDK), but they were within spec anyhow. This is the first alignment ever done on this 10 year old Honda...

    235/45-18 Mastercraft LSR Grand Touring

    2010 Accord. Installed at 150k miles. Just placed at 192k miles. Tires only lasted 42k miles However all inside edges were extensively worn on all 4 tires. Tires were cupped and chopping and really loud. I wasn't super impressed with these tires. I think I paid $650 installed for all 4...

    1970 Cub Cadet Model 73 with Cizek Mower

    So, the tractor is completely restored. EVERY OPTION AVAILABLE has been added to this Cub Cadet 73: Headlights, fenders, amp meter, creeper gear, hydraulic lift, and rear PTO. And if that isn't enough, after asking all the experts for months, and searching all over the internet, just ONE other...

    2017-18 Hyundai Tucson

    So my wife is still shopping around for a new vehicle.....she's wanting to trade in her 2014 Honda CR-V I thought she was really sold on getting another Subaru (Impreza or Forester) But these Tucson's have caught her eye. What is the BITOG opinion on these vehicles? I always take most of...

    2020 Subaru Impreza

    Thanks for the input. Did Subaru dealers refuse to change CVT fluid before? But now that issue is resolved? Looking for a bit of background info here..... My wife rarely drives at night. I think "ok" headlights will be good enough. I could always have some replacement/auxillary lights...

    2020 Subaru Impreza

    You seem to be pretty knowledgeable and have given a very glowing review. You've shifted my thoughts on the possibility of buying a car like this....Thank you for your input.

    2020 Subaru Impreza

    I'm looking for a new car for my wife. She'd be trading in her 2014 Honda CR-V for this new Base Trim Impreza. She just loves Subaru's. She had a Forester, and wants back in another Subaru. She's also looking for a car this time around. Any input on these cars? Here's the listing for...

    2018 Silverado 6.0 Idle Stumble

    It's something that would be hard to capture on video, really. I'm running Shell or Sunoco 87 Octane fuel. No, I haven't tried ECU reset. I had the GM dealer scan for codes, and they saw nothing. Like I mentioned before, in the morning, she just stumbles a bit at start up....maybe 30 seconds...

    ZTR Engines

    That's a great insight. Crazy to see that you only have 155 hours on it after 6 years of use. I'm sure I'll have a similar experience. I've been really pondering the need for an expensive commercial grade ZTR. The 60-72" Hustlers (commercial) run $7k--$13k Maybe I ought to be looking at...

    ZTR Engines

    I'm about to buy a new home. It's going to have approximately 5 acres of yard to mow. I like what I'm seeing in the commercial grade Hustler's. They have basically three engine options: Kawasaki FX, Kohler Commands, and Brigg's Vanguard Big Blocks. I was a bit surprised that most...

    BEST Oil Filter for 2020

    My favorite oil filter is Royal Purple. In my Silverado 3500, I typically run the filter for 2 OCI's for a total of 12-14k miles. <img src="https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/attachments/usergals/2020/07/full-48808-46274-the_combo.jpg" alt="[Linked Image]" class="post-image"...

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted by PowerSurge</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Why even speculate or worry about it.
