    Frontier "hidden" winch: some pictures

    I don't go crazy off-road like a lot of folks here but I do like to have options. I like to keep my truck as stock as possible but I wanted a winch. It isn't fully "hidden" but it is definitely low profile. Check out the pictures to make some of the discussion make more sense. I wanted to...

    What's on the rear axle? (GMC Sierra)

    Sorry for the bad pictures. They're from a cellphone while driving. I noticed a strange tube-like device attached on the rear of the rear axle of a GMC Sierra (with "Denali" badging on the side). What is that? There is a small tube or rod coming out of each side. It seems distinct and...

    Re-rigging a pull using a manual winch

    I've been wondering something for awhile. I've read of people using manual winches (Wyeth Scott or misc come-alongs) to pull rigs out. It seems like with enough snatch blocks and cable one can generate however much force you need. The only trade-off is time to rig everything up and how many...

    Purchase decision: what's the leak (2007 Frontier V6)

    I'm looking at an '07 6-speed Frontier with > 160k miles on it. It seems clean and runs well. Normal scratches and wear you'd expect with the mileage. The rear diff has a minor leak which I'm not worried about, however there is another one from up under the engine area. I've done work on...

    Another "which wheel is this" question

    This is on a Ford F250 -- pretty standard size a I understand it. When I got my truck a couple of years ago it came w/ these over-sized tires and the stock spare underneath. I've been happy with them but I don't have a 5th wheel for a spare (nor a good place to store it). I'm figuring I'll...

    FWC Grandby (1985) - $1000

    I got this only recently, but now I'm selling it. Please see the craigslist ad for more details. The only reason I'm not keeping it is because I live in a pretty urban environment and despite thinking very creatively and begging and pleading there just isn't anywhere for it to live while not on...
