    2nd Gen INFINITI QX56/QX80 Build

    I haven't heard anything concrete. I think I remember seeing something about noisy timing chain guides but I don't think it was a systematic problem. If that were the case, it probably would have been the early years and probably resolved by the time the QX80 came out.

    2nd Gen INFINITI QX56/QX80 Build

    You have to remember that there are now 2 Generations. Gen 1 QX56 is 2004 - 2010 Gen 1 Armada is 2004 - 2016 Gen 2 QX56/QX80 is 2011+ Gen 2 Armada is 2017+ The Gen 2's have weaker front differential than Gen 1's. (R180 vs M205) With that being said, you can easily install the Gen 1 front...

    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    LOL, what a time to be alive. You traded a vehicle for a clearly superior one straight across. This just goes to show how much the Toyota badge is "worth".

    2016 Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71

    Main symptoms are shudder and/or hard shifting, eventually leading to mechanical failure. I did some digging and it looks like GM now have a TSB to flush the fluid with an improved ATF by Mobil 1. I would start with that. TSB is Lubegard has also taken notice...

    2016 Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71

    Be very careful with the transmission, tons of problems people are having and there is a current class action lawsuit because of it. GM refusing to fix the issue.

    PetitFrereArmada was selling his Stedi Type-X Pro lights. I bought them from him. Still need to wire them up, but ran out of daylight.

    Installed the battery. Could have actually fit a batter about 1.5" longer and 2" taller with ease.

    2nd Gen INFINITI QX56/QX80 Build

    My battery is not doing that great, and since I will be taking a trip to Death Valley soon I should replace it. I also want to run an electric blanket during the nights to keep warm, so a deep cycle would be good. I am not ready to do the drawer system and "house" electrical setup so I will run...

    Electric Chain Saw???

    Since I already own Milwaukee tools (1/2 impact, Impact Driver, Drill, 3/8 Ratchet) and keep them in my vehicle, it makes sense for me to add the Milwaukee M18 Chainsaw too keep standardized batteries and chargers. Started looking up reviews on this thing and its a freakin BEAST. 16" Bar, built...

    Gasoline parking heaters?

    If the US Military cant even get diesel heaters to not leak in multimillion dollar vehicles, (seriously, I have never seen a Diesel heater that worked and did not leak) I certainly would not trust my life with a cheap Chinese Gasoline version. I cheap out when I feel its acceptable, but to...
