    At what point do you "give-up" on a vehicle?

    I broke my Rodeo out at 5 mile this summer. 1st time out this year mind you. It's a shop getting evaluated. Turns out the damage was way worse then I had hoped. I ended up damaging/breaking the rear ARB locker along with the axle shaft...and due to metal scuffing up the bearing seat a...

    Trailer wiring blowing fuses

    I borrow my father-in-laws trailer once in awhile to tow the Rodeo. It's an old beat up 16'.....and while its done the job the lights have always been an issue. This is not a trailer he uses often...and really has sort been neglected. I hooked it up to my truck today and it had no lights...

    Atturo Trail Blade A/T experience?

    Coilover maintenance

    So I've had coilovers on my truck for a few years. I have to say I am not horrible impressed so far. I'm sure a lot of that comes from not needing fully tuned.... I'm also sure it has to do with the custom suspension/SAS. Im begining to wonder if there is some regular maintenance im not...

    Making adult friends

    I've been struggling with this for awhile, and figured I may as well post it. Ive always been a little shy and have a hard time talking to new people.... mainly because i feel i don't have much to say and that most people aren't interested it anyway. Lately I've struggled with it because...

    I have a treadmill that actually gets used :oops: the rear roller started making noise....appears the bearings are shot. Where is a good place locally to source the bearings? I am guessing they are too small for an auto parts store to find...not to mention i don't want to go through the...

    getting rid of a vehicle

    I have a vehicle I'm looking to get rid of. I'm not sure the best way to go about this. What's the best way to get rid of a vehicle that isn't worth crap? I have a '97 Isuzu Rodeo. It runs but the power steering pump is shot, it leaks oil, is missing front bumper, and heater controls...

    35" Toyo MT on 6 lug wheels

    35" Toyo MT on 6 lug wheel I have 1 35x13.5R15 Toyo MT left. It has a cut on the sidewall but could possibly be patched and used as a spare, it does have good tread left (about 50%+)... It held air and would burp when rolling only, but didn't leak much just standing there. Wheel is black steel...

    4x4 related shops

    I'm curious, and thought maybe a thread with ongoing sources for good shops that can deal with many of our trucks would be a good idea. I'm currently looking for a shop that can do the rear pinion seal on my truck. I am at a loss as to what are good shops these days.....generally I want...

    Rebuilding coil overs...anyone local do it?

    It seems I may need one (if not both) of my front coil overs rebuilt....I'm not 100% this is the case, but they feel like they aren't dampening on pot holes as well.....Since this is now my DD, I am not sure what to do about this. I know i could probably do it myself...although I've never done...

    5) 33 x 12.5R15 Falken Wildpeak tires on Eagle alloys 6 x5.5

    Tires still have lots of life on them...if I had to guess I'd say close to 65% of tread life on 4 and 75% on 1. 1 tire does have 2 plugs in it, but it holds air fine and hasn't leaked any for the past few months I've had the plugs. The Eagle allows are very pitted and have curb rash. $400...
