    I believe he was using 5K intervals. I dont believe him, I'm sure he had missed an oil change and was due for another. Most people lie to me about what they did or didn't do to cause the car problems. Like it will make it cheaper to fix.:rolleyes: I'm just posting this as a reminder to change...

    I want my Explorer to look like an off roading vehicle.

    Easy killer, you need to look at what your going to do with this truck. If 99% of the time you will be driving it to work then a mammoth 4X4 is not for you.

    Best way to patch up chipped paint and rust?

    For paint chips use a similar color crayon to fill it in and then touch up paint.:D For scale best thing is to sand prime paint. Cancer if left untreated will get out of control. :thumbsup:

    2000 Mounty Trail rig

    I thought you needed a 10" wide rim to run a 12.5 inch tire?

    2000 Mounty Trail rig

    Ive been reading and it seems that TT and shackles are all I need to fit 33". I don't mind doing a little fender trimming.;) I may just stick with 31" due to stock rim size. I will see how it all goes, if I do enough wheeling I will look for a set of 10" wide steelys.

    I'm thinking cheap so an Aussie is a good choice, but I would like to get a Detroit EZ locker. I don't want to put the money into a selectable locker. Say a year from now I don't want to go wheeling any more then I have all this money invested I will never get back. Been down that road before.

    Larger Tire Shifting Points

    My 2000 Mounty I don't have the tires yet. Dunlop Radial Mud Rover 31 X 10.5 R15 30.8" over all diameter 3.73 gears 692 Revs per mile 692x60x3.73/60/60= 43.01 So what is this in reference to, you want a ratio of 50. So does a lower number mean higher or lower shift points? I could understand if...

    Where do you live? Is it cold? Are your wheels slipping? A4WD will turn on and off if you are getting wheel spin.

    ? about oil change

    7,500 mi is fine for a synthetic, also you don't have the breakdown over time like standard oils. So even if it has been a few months since you changed it then I would not worry.:D

    Alright, well I don't have much of a choice, since no one makes an LSD for the D35 cir clip axle. I guess I will end up with a 4406-M and a locker front and rear. :D

    How much force to turn a supercharger?

    Half the power it makes is way off base. Yes an on older style M112 is less efficient. Though the numbers are closer to 15% to 20%. However there is an upside the unit will cool faster once the RPMs drop. And a supercharged engine will have gobs of low end torque.:cool: HP sells cars, Torque...
