Nice Wesley! That looks like OK to me!

Thanks for the response on the shocks guys. I am anxious to get mine on. Really, the main reason I did it is because of the new $800 tires I wanted to protect, but the ride has always been pretty good. That's why I wasn't sure if I would be able to tell a difference.

Well, we pick up the puppy this morning around 11. My daughter can't contain her excitement/ She was up before everybody else making sure the house is ready.

Hope you guys have a great Saturday. I am going to also continue Ike's facelift with new clear headlights sometime this afternoon.

What is this "newspaper" you speak of?

So almost immediately after mocking you for your antiquated means of gaining world knowledge, I go outside to walk the two blocks to my mother-in-laws house, and there at the end of my walk is a newspaper. And not just any newspaper, it's the NY Times in it's bright blue baggie. Look up and down the street, only one.
I guess it's time for coffee

Be very careful with that thing! Have you ever had a paper cut? It's brutal! That's why those things have been practically banned across the Country!

I should've have looked closer, it's yesterday's NYTimes. No wonder they're failing...

Brandon,I removed Monroe shocks from the front of my truck, no idea of the mileage etc but the passenger side would not extend. I decided on KYB MONOMAX the size difference was unreal as was the difference is load handling and ride. KYB's come from Japan's Heavy industry and have a strong reputation in the field.

The thing to keep in mind with Bilsteins and Rancho's, although good shocks, IMO it's their advertising campaign that makes practically everyone believe they are the only two options for shocks. It's the exact same thing in the Jeep forums. The Bilsteins have a reputation of being "stiffer" regardless of the application. The Rancho's claim is they are "adjustable", there also seems to be issues with the durability of the finish, but considering where they spend their life, probably expected. I had Rancho's on my Jeep because of the adjustability, I NEVER crawled under my Jeep to adjust them even with 35" tires. Whatever you decide consider the the real world etc. s

The worst dream

had the worst dream this morning.. that I drive home and for some reason there were a bunch of big rocks at my house. I went to park my 7.3 but the drive way was blocked. So I went over the rocks and slammed into a tree with extensive damage and thought Iíll fix it later.. next morning I came out and it was gone someone stole it..new tires everything. That feeling was strangely and genuinely heart breaking woke up in a panic.. had to go outside to see and touch her with my hand to reassure myself...

Any problem can be solved with enough Lead or Silver.

True, but a lot of time and energy goes into them, and lots of blood sweat and tears! Sometimes they can seem more like a member of the family, although my 5 year old behaves better than my truck some days! Haha

the issue can be further solved by installing the Cyclops T.A.M, best $100 you can invest in your truck (or any vehicle really) and if you want to sell your vehicle just pop it out and keep the unit and fobs and there ya go, move it to your next ride


I have one in my truck and one in the Mustang its already paid for its self...
