Re: Honest Engines

The SRT bumper on the Durango really is awesome. We rarely order even a base model without the appearance package because of how popular it is.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Mite that Cummins have same BoB Bolt Pattern as in Ram Truck? Ifso Fatso, you could look for an "Experienced" 6-speed Aisin AS68RC. No idea. But there's no way I'm putting a manual in this thing. Its enough work to pay attention to the size of it as it is. I also don't want to waste floor space or ...

I just realized that I should probably change my signature picture and update my cars.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Gonna make it into the adventurebus? Yup. Plan is to make it fully off-grid capable until the liquids run out. Solar power, 100ish gallon fresh water tank, dry flush toilet because there is no way I'm dealing with black water tanks, propane hot water and cooktop Made in Sweden, right? Gotta turbo a...

Re: I'm starting to get depressed about the automotive future

The Cummins is by far the best of the Big Three diesel engines available. The reliability and longevity are unmatched. As is the fuel economy, for those who care. I feel like those are the types of people who do care, which is why they opt for the manual. At my last job we used to service tons of ca...

Re: I'm starting to get depressed about the automotive future

I never saw myself having a Mopar or an HD diesel but availability of manuals has pushed me there. Not a fan of the extra maintenance or complexity or the gross overkill for 99% of my driving, but it is what it is until something else catches my eye. Except the Ram manual is over. With the absolute...

Re: The beast has come...

Theres something about the burble of exhaust turning to a roar and drowning out the radio that I like. I also take long-ass road trips and need music regardless of my exhaust situation. The radio helps improve my fuel economy in these situations as well. Since I get about 20mpg out of a four cylinde...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

It could, if thats your thing. I upsized from 17s to 18s and went wider but kept the diameter almost identical for speedometer accuracy. You may be able to get a slightly wider or narrower tread with a different sidewall ratio that works.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Since your tires are an odd size, would it be better to change to a more common size with nearly the same diameter?
