I need to some preventive maintenance this summer and my cousin has slated us to order from rockauto.com. Anyone know if this place has quality parts or are they junk? Anyone dealt with them?
Thanks for the input!
FWIW, mechanic has given a quote of about 700-800 to install new timing belt...
I've heard people saying that welding on a vehicle has potential of frying the ECU (if equipped). I'm talking like welding on the frame or a bumper.
Is this true? The only proof I really have is the incident involving the BMW motorcycle from Long Way Round. They had to weld up a break in...
X-posted from NOR due to plenty of members here running ARB bumpers.
For quite some time now the bumper lights on my ARB haven't worked. Even after I bought it (used but in good shape) they were worked intermittantly.
So a few weeks ago I did a serious search for a replacement SET as I...
I did a search and hadn't seen anyones post on the EarthCruiser 4x4.
It's based on a Mitsubishi frame/cab with a composite fiberglass camper box.
It's by Kym Bolton out of Australia. He races a Nissan Patrol in the Outback Challenge and several other comp's.
Good looking rig with nice...
A few years ago the state passed SB 155 which took away our ability to go off-highway on state property that was not forbidden. One of the number one locations for many OHV people was a place known as the Slabs. It was all granite and sand from granite. Many other locations were taken away -...
Okay I haven't seen them on anything but the largest of expedition trailers but...
If you have a rooftop tent on a trailer does the whole trailer wiggle much at night? Even if it's still attached to the tow vehicle?

Come over and see what they have to offer.
Ya know we gotta compete with the Toy's somehow.
There are a couple more modifications to go to the bumper but I'm going to wait till the fall. Just too danged hot here.
On the ground ready to go...
Bracing under rear quarter
The other day I saw a black TRD with an ARB. The front marker lights which are normally just "on" had been modified to be turn signals and were LED's. Very slick.
Anyone know of this modification or are the newer ARB's coming that way?
I plan on building a custom storage unit for the bed of Stormy. It'll just be between the fenderwells. I'm planning on two small bins towards the rear(close to the tailgate) and one larger one at the front of the bed(by the cab). Hinged and lockable are really not options. Gas struts to lift...
I plan on building one very soon. I've noticed some
(A)swinging from the passenger side (makes sense = get out of drivers side and open),
(B)swing on drivers side (that is the side I want to mount the tire on but weight on the gate that far out could be too much)
or (C)custom setup that would...
