    Odyssey vs. Diehard Platinum

    Out of the grave with this thread. Here we go with another long term update! another five years have passed. Today I replaced my Diehard Platinum batteries in the Avalanche. They did still work, but are end of life for sure. Not dependable any longer and unable to perform to expectations. Date...

    Ranchhand Bumper with receiver. Works great. Up high enough for decent approach angle.

    Help with lid .

    Our local NAPA parts store had a good selection. Takes a little digging through the selection to find the ends needed and lift weight.

    I think it is the bad news that makes to press release. When things work it doesn't get the same exposure. No news is good news for the GM IFS crowd. The terrain I frequent works well with IFS.

    Put on new shoes :) 285/75-17 Nitto Ridge Grappler. Smooth and quiet . I had very good luck and tire wear from the Nitto Terra Grappler. 4 years later and still half tread or more. ( 11/32 ) The Ridge Grappler is a nice hybrid Mud/AT tire. I have high hopes for their performance.
