RE: Aftermarket tranny and diff covers

Some time ago I read a magazine test that mentioned the mag hytec diff cover was good for 25-50deg temp reduction. Don't know about the tranny cover.

RE: I-405 Washington State

If you have a smartphone consider downloading "Waze" traffic app. Should give you a heads up to events. Avoid I405 beyond 2pm.

RE: LR E 17" Load Rating?

There are higher rated E tires. Sometimes it means going slightly bigger. How strong are your rims? What is your goal? Truck information?

RE: internet options

The boosters are not magic. They do extend available service. They also sell 120ac adapters for the house or using while connected to shore power. Altitude helps the external antenna. On my truck and Jeep I have found the middle of the hood the best spot for the 4" rubber antenna. They also sell home specific units. Those devices light up an entire room. A friend needed one for on call work emergencies. He went from no in house service to reliable 3g/4g anywhere in the living room. He placed his mifi next to the internal antenna. Then wifi to his computer.

RE: internet options

AT&T and TMobile use very similar technology (GSM). You would be better off dumping one of them (TMobile) and using Verizon which depends on CDMA. There are exceptions and overlap on their tech. Then get a cellphone booster. Having both technologies with a cell phone booster will minimize down time. The following linked item will boost upto 4 devices at one time. They also sell cheaper single booster devices. The more expensive item does boost more signal strength. I recommend placing your mifi on or next to the internal antenna. I average 35db signal strength increase. The cheaper Sleek device I average 18db signal strength increase. With the booster I have cell and data service miles beyond other users. I have Verizon. The CDMA tech works better in the mountains. The Verizon 4g is GSM. In July, I had Netflix where others had just enough signal to text. Weboost (Wilson Electronics is the old name) does sell other antennas. However, every antenna has a downside. Different antennas can help 1x and 3g while hurting 4g. The included 4" rubber antenna is nearly indestructible and is mostly neutral. Wilson Mobile Pro http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81c%2B6o0TalL._SL1500_.jpg

RE: Small vehicle to tow behind a Class C

The Fit is a very versatile little car, with Tardis-like capabilities (i.e. it's bigger on the inside than the outside, or so it seems, particularly with the seats folded down in cargo mode). Tardis like capabilities should be repeated for no particular reason.

RE: 460 or V10

1997-1999 was first of the V10's with 275-HP and about the same performance as the last of the 460's. Some of those engines had problems with spark plug threads. At least some of that trouble seems to have been from improper mechanics. E4OD was modified all so slightly and named 4R100. 2000 and later V10's went to 305-HP with "Performance Improved" heads that also addressed the spark plug issue. The V8 truck engines had the same spark plug problem. The V8 version also ate coil packs. A stripped spark plug head can be repaired. It's usually not cheap.

RE: Need tires for 98 rexhall aerbus

I prefer tires from a known national retailer in case of problems on the road. My first stop is always Les Schwab. They are usually everywhere I go.

RE: 2010 dodge ram 2500 diesel.. laramie package

Tdr or cumminsforum will get great answers. However, you need much more specific info before asking for further help.

RE: 3/4 ton diesel vs diesel suv

Is the Ford OK while towing but, not around the new city? Uber? Rental car?

RE: Need help with the In-Tank pump, FOUND SCHEMATIC OL

Not familiar with your setup. Relay's do go bad. Check that first.

RE: Ram 3.21 rear end towing

Have you tried Dave Smith in Kellog, ID? The drive from Kellog to Stockton, CA isn't too bad. You still pay your local taxes. The sell a lot of Dodge trucks.

RE: Need Suggestions on getting a tow vehicle

Avoid anything with the ZF 9spd transmission. Older Toyota Highlander probably hits most of your requests. Check Edmunds.com for specific years. I'd rather tow your combo with 5k capacity than 3500lb capacity.

RE: 3000 Miles from home - brake issues...... THoughts?

Avoid the inline taps. If you have them, remove them when you get home. http://images.lowes.com/product/converted/783250/783250683277lg.jpg

Upgrade the Glow steps with Torklift Landing Gear. They also make a very handy hand rail for the Glow Steps. Landing Gear http://torklift.com/images/product_images/atlg/All_Terrain_Landing_Gear_IU.jpg

RE: Wobbling 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Dashcam could record in decent quality. What about taking a mechanic on a ride along in the camper? Let him observe all procedures were followed. Find a patch of road guaranteed to cause a problem. Uploading to YouTube would probably preserve the video quality. Emailing low quality video would be hard to watch. We had our 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk lemon law'd. I took high quality video of the problem. I also converted the weird dash noise to mp4. Then placed a memory stick into the vehicle with specific instructions for the mechanic. I also uploaded high quality video to YouTube. Made video private. Then shared the link with the dealer. I was not trying to go viral. I worked with the dealer for a resolution. Over document everything. Research your specific state Lemon Laws. Be thorough. Be courteous. We received almost all of our money back with my local Lemon Law. Can you record the tow vehicle from the motorhome and have a camera setup in the Jeep looking at the motorhome? Two dashcams that record in mp4 would probably work great.

It's actual running hours - engine run time. x2

RE: Engine overheating

For several years it seemed like I would not be able to solve my overheating problem. I went through the usual suspects (new thermostat, fan clutch, hoses..etc) still had the problem. Sometimes it would overheat and other times it wouldn't under the same conditions. It turned out the new fan clutch I had installed went bad. Since it was a new one, I didn't think to check it. Apparently, it was engaging sometimes but eventually failed completely. I found a heavy duty aftermarket unit and haven't had a heating problem since. x2 Fan Clutch? An infrared heat gun is great at troubleshooting. The cheap ones are $25. The cheap ones will likely be off by 2 or 3 degrees. Not a big deal in this scenario. Don't forget to use the infrared heat gun to verify the brakes are not dragging.
