    I did check the inlet an outlet temps with an infared gun and got 735 going in to cats and 450 coming out. From what i read, the outlet temp should be 50-100 degrees hotter

    NO way. I have a TT and 2 inch body lift with 32x11.5's and i still had to cut front bumper and moulding at back of wheel well.

    HELP. Hopefully my cats are bad, because i just bought some

    99 xlt with 4.0 ohv. NO CEL idle is feeling funny, not searching, surging, or any of those, just different from normal. Exhaust has new sound i have never heard of before, getting exhaust smell in the car. Also, every time i try to accelerate it seems to hesitate. Recent plugs, wires, maf...

    Update 09/06/10 Been busy and havent been on here lately but thought an update was in order. I built a push bar for the front and welded it to the frame, made a step out of diamond plate for my hitch reciever, and just got new wheels and tires. The front bumper and hitch step were free(fabbed...

    Lets talk "Mental illness"

    my wife suffers from anxiety. It didnt really show until after having children. She didnt really leave the house for about 18 months after our first child and thought that it would never go away. She is on effexor CR and it helps tremendously. Every once in a while she has a bad day and...

    more fuel capacity after body lift? WTF?

    I've gotten barely over 19 in there and thought i was on fumes. When over 20 went in i must have looked like a real jackass franticly climbing under the car hoping the the fill neck didnt pop off. Thanks. I probably should have just looked up the capacity in my manual.

    more fuel capacity after body lift? WTF?

    I put a 2" body lift on and immediately ran it for gas on my test drive. Its a 99 ohv and somehow i put in just over 20 gal. I've never put in that much before. It freaked me out and i actually climbed under the truck at the gas station to see if it was pouring out somewhere. Has anyone else...

    I used some of the factory bolts from the back of the truck and moved them to the front, and if i used washers to make up the gap anywhere else. The steering is fine. my kit came with the extension but never needed it.

    Ol' Faithful

    it was surprisingly easy but the bolts in the kit are the wrong length because its made for a 91-94.

    Cracked & warped cylinder heads

    Not to hijack but is there a problem machining the heads and replacing the gaskets with out doing everything else. My engine runs great but loses coolant internally(out the exhaust) real slow. I got someone to inspect and machine the heads for under 100 bucks and i'm out of work right now so...

    Let's See Some Pics of Sub Boxes

    Its a 10". I have to take it out to put deadener on the rear quarter so maybe this week i'll shoot a pic of box when its out. It looks like shi*(dont have a table saw) but is completely sealed. The hard part was having it together and having to sand the inside walls to allow the magnet to fit...

    Slow Coolant Loss

    Would a slower leak mean a lesser chance of head damage? and do the exhaust manifolds need to come out because with the miles (160,000), i would think they'd be a pain to get off. My chiltons manual will be here by tues so i'll have a better idea of what needs to happen.

    Slow Coolant Loss

    I've read for hours and still cant figure it out. I have 99 v6 ohv and i'm loosing coolant. No leaking. I have checked around the heater control valve, temp sender, took off the bottom radiator shroud, I have looked everywhere to find no signs of loss. I have not done a compression test yet...

    Let's See Some Pics of Sub Boxes

    The only rattle i get is standing outside the truck you can hear my rear quarter vibrate. I stuffed the inside of the box with polyfill and that made it sound better. I am going to take it out and put some deadener on the quarter and then screw the box down to the floor and then all should be...

    Done! So i ran by the local custom shop (shockwave), and bought a yard of box carpet. I only needed a 2x2 ft square but he wouldnt do it. So without further ado....

    Ol' Faithful

    Its my everyday truck so it will stay 2wd. I do want to get a 3rd gen with the third row and 4x4 and lift that. The extra seat will make it easier on my kids.

    Ol' Faithful

    Bye Bye amp So i moved my amp to under the passenger seat to keep prying eyes off of it. I am usually the only one in my car so having to remove the spring from the seat trac doesnt bother me. All should go well as long my boys can keep their wet feet off of it. It wouldnt fit in the...
