    Comment by 'DasFrem' in media 'New tires 2'

    At that point it had a 3" body lift, a spring over in the back and I cranked up the tortian bars up front and loads of fender trimming.

    The salvage yard is telling me that if I swap in anything newer than a '99 that I'll need an whole new computer and wiring harness....I think they're full of $#it, but can anyone prove them wrong?

    Oil Pressure, Rear Main Seal Leak Troubleshooting Help Needed

    So I should have listened to Jeff, instead I got in a hurry and replaced the oil pump and gaskets and rear seal and once I put it all back together sure enough the oils comes spewing out the rear main seal again. So I guess I need to replace the main bearings because once I started it back up...

    Oil Pressure, Rear Main Seal Leak Troubleshooting Help Needed

    Jeff, good to hear from you, especially your respected advice. You have a good point, I might as well swap it out, especially when you consider what a PITA it is to get to it. The metal shavings do concern me...there was enough to make a film of grimy silvery mess at the bottom of the pan...

    Oil Pressure, Rear Main Seal Leak Troubleshooting Help Needed

    So I've been beating myself up about this problem for a couple of weeks and have finally decided to ask for help...(97 4.0 V6 ohv) A few weeks back, I was about 100 miles from home and the oil gauge is dropping to nothing, then back up, and sometimes just flicking back and forth. I know its...

    Look what $2550 will get you!

    Clutch hydraulic diconnect tool dimensions

    The first time I pulled the hydraulic line I spent (wasted) 2 days looking for that stupid little tool, I then tried a small flat-head screwdriver and it popped right off. The next time I had to remove it I tried the special "tool" and it was a pain in the ass...the flat-head screwdriver was...

    Oops, I did it again...

    If you look on the bright side, at least you weren't driving 45+mph and had that tire hit two other cars.....the flip side of that is, HOW DID YOU NOT LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE?!?!?!?

    Landwind zero star crash test

    You can tell how crappy the frame is on the side view behind the driverside rear wheel. THe frame looks as if its only 2" high.

    Mazda or Mitisibishi 5-speed?

    99% chance its the Mazda 5 speed and you'll need ATF for it. I've never seen a Mitsu in an Ex as of yet, but I know the Hayens mentions it. To the best of my knowledge, the Mitsu came behind the 2.3 4cyl in rangers, but never in Explorers. Also the Mistu has a removeable bellhousing whereas...

    Removing Manual Transmission

    What I do is lower your tranny jack so that the tranny/motor tilts down and then use a long extention (24 or so inches) to get at it. Like Doug I've also done it quite a few times now (just finished doing it again last week)

    Official BS thread!!

    Yeah, It'll probably be a while before I can get up there again seeing as I don't get much vacation with my current job (not to mention I went though all of it in Italy). But I'll get back up there eventually. And oh and Chris, its not a painting, to prove I was there here's a pic of me, well...

    Official BS thread!!

    So I thought I'd drop a line to you guys seeing as I've been MIA for a while. I went to Italy last month for two weeks 'cause I needed some time away plus I've been busy as hell at work. So the first pic is of me in Venice, and the second is of how the two trucks are doin'. I haven't done...

    1998 Sport D-44 SAS Complete!!!

    I think both Lizard and I accomplished this by simply unbolting the brake line on the driver side spring perch and routing the hard line above the spring. Doesn't exactly follow the lines above the spring, but it does the trick and still allows for all the flex you'll get out of those springs.

    I did a write up on building your own a while back, the only problem I had with it was how long it took for ARB to ship the top piece from Australia. Check it:

    What to do with the top on my sport???

    I'll be cutting mine soon, but I have to wait on a few varibles with my job situation. I already took the doors off a few months back and enjoy the open feeling of it all. When I cut mine I'm cutting from the b-pillar back and then afxing a hinge on the rear tailgate. The latch should work the...

    My dreams useally rocked, VERY VERY vivid ones. I never had nightmares, but the dreams are unlike any others you've ever had. I'd almost buy a box of the smallest patches to have some cool dreams again.

    Need to quit the cigs,any success storys?

    I used to smoke 1.5 packs a day for 10 years and I quit over 2 months ago with the patch plus regular chewing gum. A few weeks prior to quitting, I also started working out on a regular basis, as to provide extra insentive. I've quit in the past using the patch and it worked ok, but I was...
