    1986 GMC S-15

    I am not a Expedition portal regular. I went through a phase where I wanted to TRAVEL THE WORLD IN A VAN probably 5 years ago. Luckily my loving wife brought me back to earth and thats just not feasible. Ive moved onto other things, currently building a turbo 1984 Datsun Maxima wagon. What...

    1986 GMC S-15

    Am I the only one who noticed he slyly mentioned he received a T4 flange with his parts order? Or noticed that he is installing low compression pistons in an engine which from my quick googling doesn't normally take dished pistons? So... What turbo are you throwing on the new motor? Been...

    1st Gen Frontier engine life expectancy?

    Ka24 or a vg33e. Both are good. Vg has to have the timing belt done. And the distributor can cause an issue but the engine itself is very solid

    1986 GMC S-15

    So... was looking at a house on Zillow and was looking at the street view......did you take a trip to kansas and not tell us? Or better yet. Want me to go drive by and see if it's still there and steal the fender and hood?

    1986 GMC S-15

    So. I was just looking through the start of your thread and noticed something. Your Topper isn't the right one for your truck is it? The way it doesn't fit the cab. The way the bottom protrudes out farther. Not that it matters at all. I just noticed it. Having any luck finding body parts? I...

    2001 Xterra Xploration Vhicle

    If you unclip the brake lines out of the little plastic holder and push them against the fire wall its a lot easier to get to the 6th sparkplug. I think I even bent mine a tad to get clearance.

    2011 Subaru Outback Overland Build

    The excel g shocks are a decent upgrade. I put them on my wife's and they are nicer. But personally I would snag a set of 13-14 outback strut assembles on eBay. They have stiffer springs and the shocks have more damping. And my wife has blown out the front KYB's in 50k and getting warranty is a...

    2up light dirt bike recommendation wanted.

    Exactly what I was going to recommend. I like that they are narrow as the don't have to house a radiator in the shroud area which is normally the widest point except for the bars. I would not go for a drz400 personally. A few other options would be a klx250 or a wr250. I think honda has a 250...

    Subaru Ascent

    I agree that the warranty is not the best. But I have found that they do stand behind there vehicles. We have a 2011 out back and we are the second or 3rd owner. The first gen cvt's in the outbacks had an issue with a bearing in the torque converter and was a known issue. They came out with a...

    1986 GMC S-15

    So today I was sick and after the dr told me I wasn't going to die and gave me a prescription Ithought I should go get something you have inspired me to get. So I get my little girl in the truck and we take off for the 5 hr round trip. Told her no interstate on the way there all back roads. She...

    BeefCake's build...a roll your own Earthroamerish family expo rig

    Is this the Big trip you talk about on page one? Am I mistaken that this is your first outing in this rig also? If so.. My hat is off to you. Nothing like a shake down run that lasts 2 months. Let me rephrase that, My hats off to your wife for being willing to go along.... "Honey..... Was the...

    Alternator output voltage?

    I have an 03 frontier and at idle with no accessories on im only at like 13.8-13.9v. That is measuring through the Nissan data scan obdII app on my phone. Going down the highway with lights and ac on full blast it honestly drops to 13.6-13.7. Battery always good at 12.6 or so with the engine...

    When you think you have seen it all..

    I like it. Not up to date on how much things like this can bring but I think it looks good. They did a nice job with the interior. I think it could be a bit lower but that is my taste.
