    Only s10 pickups

    Edited:

    Wanna pick me up an alternator for an '08 Charger and/or a power steering pump for an '87 Yota pickup if they got one? And I wouldn't say no to a transfer case, too. And drivetrains.... and new front end... no... no that's a bad idea...
    I wish they had anything like that, no new stuff hardly. Never seen a Toyota pickup there. The Nissan hardbodys are stripped within days.

    I think I will yank some E-fans from merc's and volvo's maybe some chevys.
    And wiring harness's from chevys.

    We have concluded over at SloppyMechanics it is a hype train of disappointment. You can do this all with a proper app + ELM. The writing availability will be far fetched only thing it will be able to do without extensive development for each manufacture would be able to send Canbus messages like they showed starting a GM Tahoe which you can also do with Torque Pro.

    It will not replace a real scan tool with all PID's and diagnosis PID's to do test functions.

    Plus if you look hard enough this product is already on the market for some time now with NO one with a amazing breakthrough at all with flashing a PCM/ECM.

    Happiness. Everyone experiences it in different situations, be it opening a gift, spending time with friends and family, or anything else in between.
    Myself?
    A rickety old truck, some tunes, and the end of a good day. Every time.
    In life there are moments of euphoria where you have to sit back and reflect beyond visual perception. To look at your life as a whole, the people around you, and the things you've done. You should be proud of yourself, no matter how bleak things may seem in the moment.

    Its a small world, with a finite amount of time, so I ask a simple question. What makes you happy?

    Sleeping well tonight knowing if you blew up a carslie tire or not.

    But mainly my happiness comes from sitting on the water in a boat or kayak fishing. You can spend a lot if time reflecting.

    fucking cocksucker caravans

    driving down this fun as fuck road

    taking turns at 50-60km/h, 80km/h on straights

    and then caravan

    20-30km/h at turns, 60km/h on straights

    and there are plenty of spots provided for slow drivers to pull over and let others pass but of course the dickhead didn't want to do that.

    getting crazy vibrations through the steering wheel, seat and floor when i'm driving at highway speeds.

    i suspect its an unbalanced tire because they fucking cunt who fixed my brakes like a year ago tightened the bolts with a socket driver and its humanly impossible to take them off, so when i got 2 new tires i could only put one on the front.

    Edited:

    getting 2 new tires tomorrow but is there anything else it could be?

    I have a very simple definition of that.

    A sunny summer day, spent at the track racing. And then going out with friends to eat something at this local greek place.

    That for me, is the best possible day.

    I ordered my tuner and custom tune

    Anyone else with a Crown Vic look up Mo's Speed Shop in Dallas GA. It's a hundred bucks more than buying from SCT or whoever, but he knows his shit so well, whereas SCT is gonna just sell you a detuned mustang tune. I'll let the thread know how well it goes.

    I run strictly all Carlisle tires on my trailers except for one because it's hard to find in that specific size and F rating. My oldest set right now are 8 years oldish (No DOT Date Stamp) with light dry rot happening on the face that only appeared in the last year. That trailer only has a 3,300lbs boat goss but routinely gets hauled ~60miles at 80mph. All my other trailers have been sold but they were cargo trailers and I didn't have them light at all.


    Only reason why I ask is because it looked similar to a Carlisle and I've never had one blow up on me. I've only had 3 tire poof's and they were loadstars and a goodyear.

    Carlisles are preddy gud, I haven't seen many come into the shop blown out, usually they're just rotted as hell, which is more to do with them lasting like a century than any quality issues.

    Goodyear trailer tires are junk as far as Ive seen. I'd rather roll on rim.

    Good luck, you're going to have a lot of headaches communicating with anything other than something like megasquirt. The stock DME's are super locked down.

    If I had the money, I'd get a Haltech, MCM uses them and I've never seen them have any issues with em'. They seem to be really modular and fairly easy to use.

    So, at dinner last night, I was sitting by the window and happened to glance over towards my car. Something out of the corner of my eye caught my attention.

    Low-and-behold some jackass was sitting in my drivers seat looking around the interior of my truck. I immediately B-lined it to the guy and asked if I could help him as he closes my door and was getting into his minivan next to mine. He smiled and said 'nice truck. Give you $3,500 for it!'

    Was I a jerk to growl at him to get away from my truck?

    I can honestly say I've never seen someone do that before. Even though I've gotten into someone else's car completely on accident years ago because their door code was the same as mine.

    I generally leave my driver's side door unlocked. I never keep anything in the vehicle worth taking, beyond a work hat and an ice-scraper. Not exactly something I think people would steal.

    I leave mine unlocked. if you wanna clean my truck have at it, there's nothing to steal but a towel and half a 12 pack of dr pepper in there. if you're so down on your luck that you need to steal a towel by all means have at it.

    the rest of it is empty cigarette packs and old receipts

    Now, mind you, that's if I'm somewhere where I know it's being monitored or I can visually see it. If I go out to eat somewhere or travel where I know I can't see the vehicle for an extended period, I'll lock it to be safe. It's just more one of those things of 'what the fuck are you doing in my car, that's clearly not yours' that threw me off with it. I've never seen someone do that, just happily enter someone else's car without permission and walk off as if nothing was wrong.

    Used to never lock the doors in my ravSnore because it didn't have power locks and I'm exceedingly lazy, all i had in it was a scraper and some rags and oil.

    Lock my Xterra all the time now, though. Has a nice radio, clean interior, and I usually have one of my handguns stowed away in it. Helps that all I have to do is hit a button and I'm good.

    My key doesn't unlock my driver's door, but does unlock my passenger door. All I have in my car is a cheapo radio and my trunk does not open unless the key is in the ignition, or you unlock it with the key, that also unlocks the passenger door but not the driver door.

    I lock it if I have anything in it though

    Finally fixed the damn Eclipse. Put everything back together, double checked that everything was bolted down. And then it wouldn't start, and I was about ready to shoot myself. Eventually it started, let it run for a bit to assure myself it wan't going to blow up. Next time a timing belt breaks on a car I own, I'm giving it to a shop

    I only lock my doors if I'm in a shitty or unfamiliar area. the only thing worth stealing is the truck itself and I've got security cameras and good insurance
