    Opinions on Pirelli Pista?

    The size difference is almost impossible to discern without actually measuring an actual tire. The same size tires from different manufactures always vary. A concern with the Pirelli's for me would be the 16 ply rating. That is likely a very stiff tire, and a much higher load rating than you...

    California Legal Engine Swaps

    FYI - On one of the major LandCruiser sites - IH8MUD, a vendor who has done dozens of the E-Rod swaps stated that CA no longer allows these swaps! I had also read, that GM stopped making the smog legal E-Rod swap kits. Out of state registration was mentioned earlier, but that has issues also...

    Replacing Club Wagon Windows, Need Advice!

    Install what ever you decide on on the interior. Do not draw more attention with exterior security. Look at commercial van upfitters for parts and ideas. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=commercial+van+upfitters...

    Megacruisers?

    Rusty, bent and missing pieces, on a rare, and for sure over priced vehicle that appears to be listed by a notorious scammer. What's so bad about that???

    Is the Ranger the Hilux we've been wanting?

    I drive a 2016 F150 Extra cab 4X4 with a 5.0/6spd auto, and we travel every 2 weeks to our house in Gardnerville NV, a distance of 441 miles door to door. The truck averages 17.5- 18.5 mpg Northbound, and 18.5 - 20 mpg Southbound. Difference is due to more climbs on 395 Northbound. It also has a...

    As to fuel capacity... I own 2 Ford PU's - a 1977 F250 4X4 and a 2017 F150 4X4, both V8's. The 77' has 2 tanks that hold about 32 gallons, and travels about 10-13 miles on a gallon. The 17' has 1 tank that holds about 36 gallons, and travels about 15-20 miles on gallon. FYI

    Insurance e-450

    In CA, all 4 of my E350's - Club Wagons with Windows were registered as Station Wagons, as long as they have seats! Way lower fee's, no weight fee, and much lower insurance rates!

    Insurance e-450

    When you say E450, what exactly is it? It's not a regular van, as they stopped at E350. As mentioned above, if its a motorhome, should be no issues with any insurance company. But, as I suspect, this is an ambulance or commercial truck body, that is why you are having trouble. One way to get...
