My daughter is looking for a teaching job and decided to go economy on tires for her 200.
She ended up buying Waterfall Eco Dynamic in the 215/55R17 flavor from Walmart. They were free shipped to my house ($200 out the door for 4) so I can mount and balance when she comes over. They don't...
If I was there with Bertha (my version of a BFH), I would put the nut on and get it off. I did a few of those over the years when I owned a shop.
Bertha is the Goddess of death for stuck components.
It's too bad it's not on a lift though, so you can get a nice swing.
Give it a couple...
Nice deal on the oil. I'm getting on Walmart right now!
I don't worry about the diffs for vehicle recovery shock. Your axleshafts twist under those loads and soften the blow.
Keep an eye on your motor/tranny mounts if you're tugging people often.
I typically only change the diffs if I had...
Motor oil grades fall into a specific viscosity range. A 5W20 with a viscosity higher in it's range could be close to a 5W30 that is lower in it's range, or if the 5W30 sheers a bit in use, it could drop into the higher 20 grade range. Temperature plays into the oil's viscosity as well, so...
I run the same fluid in my diffs.
The 5.0L is not picky. I've run everything from Harvest King 5W20 to PP 10W30. Right now it has a 5W20 frankenbrew with 6qt's of Havoline HMSB 5W20 and Harvest King 5W20.
I guess they likely did. It's too bad, as that little 2.7 puts down some good torque.
There are plenty of uses for low range without rock crawling or driving in a blizzard.
I use low range all the time. Firewood, towing the Jeep or quads to a remote trail head, boat ramp, getting into an...
6011 would work, but I would use 3/32'nd 7018 with new material. It will be easier to work with.
I believe 6011 would have better penetration for thicker material, but you're using an 80amp welder. I think 7018 would still be fine to glue it together.
My last trip to Moab, UT with my Jeep...
Maybe 300* on track day. Around town, about the same as coolant or less under low stress.
I think he was referring to the danger of opening a pressurized cooling system.
I change my coolant and oil at the temp I like my beer..........cold.
