Yellowstone. Still only a day's drive away (mostly), or stop one night in Thermopolis along the way. If you're camping in Yellowstone, there are some regulations, but not insufferable. The weather...

If you find used ones, grease the steel brackets well (including the areas where the rust has crept under) before you install them. The design leaves a bit to be desired....

I would pull the rear driveshaft. I have read plenty of flat-tow stories through the years of people grenading the transfer cases on FJ40s due to low fluid, or a bolt getting loose, or who knows...

IH stuff is always cool, from Farmalls to 7.3 Powerstrokes. Thanks for the pix. I think a food truck at the rally would make sense.

Lighted rear view mirrors are seen in S-10 pickups (and similar GM stuff), so if you're a junkyard troller, you could look there, too.

I took the cheap route - I pried off the OEM spring-loaded cap, and removed the spring and the sticky rubber disk (the cause of the problem).

What's left is a stub sticking out of the xfer case (or...

One of the real causes of this is that (very likely) the vent cap on top of your transfer case is plugged with oil and gunk. While the transmission can vent through the shifter housing, the transfer...

I had KC Daylighters (quite old) on my FJ40 and they would, indeed, light up a street sign 3 miles away. But, I would have much rather had a closer, wider beam to spot deer, ditches, and signs....

The 'gray wire mod' on 3rd gen 4Runners works the same as it would in a Taco, but the wire color is different - it's green/red, or some such. I would only do this mod if I had a decent reference,...

I'm floored that any Civic with 250K miles on it has that sort of value, but the most salient point of your discussion is that the harder you press them, the more $$ you get. The first offer will...

The opacity limit is 20%, so you can roll some pretty good coal and still pass. My stock 7.3 Powerstroke typically blows 1-2% opacity. The one upside to this test ($50/year for me) is that you get a...

I don't know if you've lived until you've done a donut in a transit bus in the snow.

Probably should wait until the 2nd full day of employment before doing this.... ;-)
