    You can get portal axle conversion kits for them. But most likely the so-called 'tech' was stymied by the stock axle configuration. Which is sad.

    Michelin Pilots Peeling Tread at 25K

    IIRC didn't you put Toyo's on a vehicle fairly recently? Not that it matters, I just thought I remembered that.

    Another Bro-Dozer. This one hauls a Side-by-Side

    If it's strapped down as it should be, as anyone with a brain would do, it stays in place on the rack.

    Rental Review: 2020 Tacoma TRD 4WD

    Just an FYI, If it's a 5th gen with stock gearing, it has 3.727 gears.

    European Car Ownership

    I've never heard of the guy, and didn't watch the video. But I ran into that situation repeatedly back in my consumer car repair days. Still have friends and former colleagues in the biz that experience it today. I have a friend with a tire shop, and he caters to the high-end car-owning crowd...

    Will new Land Rover Defender hold its value?

    I'll just say that my wifes SUV is so far trouble free. It's loaded with the latest tech and lots of power. If it proves to be issue free, we might just keep it. At least until something more desirable comes out. We also got a relatively low-tech Toyota SUV last winter. The plan at this point...

    Rental Review: 2020 Tacoma TRD 4WD

    It should be noted that the 1GR-FE in the 2nd gen Tacoma, and 5th gen 4Runner, have almost nothing in common other than name, and being 4.0 V6 engines. The block, crankshaft, cylinder heads, intake, etc., are all different. IMO they should have changed the name to differentiate the two. Other...

    Rental Review: 2020 Tacoma TRD 4WD

    Yes, but in comparison the 3.5 with direct injectors is louder, which was my point.

    Will new Land Rover Defender hold its value?

    It's not off to a good start. I watched a couple review videos as I have a niece that is interested in this new Defender. I'll just post them.

    $8 million / 365 = $21,917-can you get by,lol

    It seemed obvious to me there was at least a hint of jealousy in creating this thread... I have no use for most of the "entertainment machine". I haven't had pay TV in years. There's no chance I'd pay $2900 for the privilege. Just about all I watch is over-the-air local news. I have much better...

    GM 3800 carnage

    Good time to replace the steering rack. I replaced lots of those on this series of car back in the day.

    FWIW, your single VVTI 4.0 1GR-FE, is not the same as the '16 3.5 2GR-FKS. The 2GR-FKS has D4S which means port and direct injectors. The direct injectors do make more noise than engines with just port injectors.

    Once again it’s the Hummers oil change interval.

    Take a drive up to Cedar Breaks with the wife a couple times a month. Evaporate the moisture out of the oil.

    First oil filter you ever bought

    Whatever the shop I was apprenticing at used. It was for my first car (Duster 340 W/4-speed), which I had to rebuild the engine and transmission on (with some guidance). I was 15.

    Clutch/gearbox weirdness

    The clutch is hydraulically actuated, and the system uses brake fluid.

    $8 million / 365 = $21,917-can you get by,lol

    I never said otherwise. BUT, the premise of this thread is about money, and a jealous swipe at someone making 8 million per year...

    Antiseize on oil filter canister threads?

    Sorry to hear it. I wish I could say I'm surprised. It's an all too common story. Most likely stripped the threads, and jammed in an oversized bolt with the help of their trusty impact wrench... We got a new 4Runner late last year. I just recently did it's first oil change myself. It will...
