I agree 100% with the parking over grass, water, ice, dirt, etc. I have seen it destroy my 89 first hand! The grass makes a cool damp environment under the vehicle constantly which keep the vehicle wet all the time. BAD!

The salt: "Sigh...." What I see happening in winter is the newer liquid salt gets in everywhere in a vehicle! Your vehicle may as well be dipped in a salt bath if you drive in winter. Where the salt/water mix runs to in the vehicle is areas that the factory did not coat with anything. In all the cracks, nooks, holes, between panels, in panels, etc., you name it or can think it the salt finds it. Now if that wasn't bad enough that the salt is everywhere in your vehicle but add heat expanding cracks, sealant, panel joints, etc. Also melting any frozen water and letting it run down to more places. All this stuff added up = junk vehicle. The constant heating and cooling of a vehicle when using a heated garage in winter just puts the vehicle threw this process over and over again all threw winter. Putting salt in areas that even car washes won't get it out. Then once it hits those spots not coated with anything much like the bottom inside of the doors of super duties or the rear wheel wells where ford only put great stuff it starts rust, instantly! Once the rust starts its all over, the rust holds salt, rust expands joints letting in more salt, and its all downhill.

Now leaving a vehicle in the cold helps some against these problems but the rust is still inevitable. What happens when leaving a vehicle out in the cold all winter is lots of places like the bottom of the doors, nooks, crack, and joints, get snowpack in them or ice over blocking some salt out from the exposed areas. Never thawing out this snowpack or ice by leaving the vehicle outside all the time helps it keep that ice barrier most of the winter. All the joints, crack, nooks stay shrunk and never open up or expand when left outside in the cold all the time.

Anyhow, you drive something in the winter on salted roads it will rust apart. That is why I drive junk in winter and store the nice things away. I am very tempted to send the bill for a new car to my state because my last one rusted away because of their salting. I didn't ask for salt, I can drive threw snow just fine, quit ruining my vehicles! Makes me so angry! I have to stop now before I get out of hand.

Whats this Rust and Salt you talk about? whats snow?

speaking off its 103degrees here in SOCAL right now! in OCT! r u kidding me?

That's a town you don't hear much of. I went to H.S. there and family lived there for years!

Also made the news a couple of years because of the shooting

That's a good baseline.

Now you need room for the boat, travel trailer, tools, and the workshop.

Put the fipk k & n on, seems to smooth out the light acceleration and definitely a noticeable difference in high rpm horses. These should have another slight positive affect on mpg' s.
