Put running boards/steps on so the wife and kids can climb in. To be honest, it keeps me from having to jump up.
New 2017 power wagon and it's a wee bit tall.

I breathed a sigh of relief when my check engine light and service 4WD message went out when I started it this morning. It was on all day yesterday. I patted the hood and said "good truck".

Last Saturday we put another 630 miles on returning from a fishing trip, does that sort of thing count?

I've often wondered if one could find a combination rock rail and step for such trucks. BTW, VERY nice truck. I got to drive and examine one last week. A little pricey..... E

I put on some Cooper ATP's in 275/65R20. Very aggressive for an AT and so far at 500 miles they are very quiet. After running two sets of Goodyear SRA's I was ready for a change. The goodyears were fine for the highway but didn't do well off road and I finally drove a rock through one, I'm loving the Cooper's so far.

I won't own a set of Goodyears, especially SRA's, for that reason. The SRA's are actually horrible on wet pavement and worse than that off road. They're put on trucks for a smooth, quiet ride. That's it. They're the softest tires I've ever had on a truck. I had 3 flats in ONE DAY on a jobsite from rocks on SRA's.

ND, know of any secret squirrel sources for green 73-79 Ford interior parts?


LMC?

Possibly national parts depot?

Unfortunately no dice there either. From what I have gathered from FTE I am going to have to find some OEM panels or have a set painted. Green is the only interior color that isn't reproduced aside from carpet. Like a dumbass I chucked my green Ranger XLT door panels, wood grain inserts and all, when I was in high school. Replaced them with some black LMC panels that never fit worth a crap and are now cracked too. Now after a decade in the sun I need a dashpad, and the saddle insert in all three of my seats is dry rotted.

For any who are interested, Eaton's Truetrac does not fit the diff on my 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Apparently they come for either 3/8th's or 7/16ths bolts, but mine needs 1/2 inch holes..... None of the local machine shops can drill it out unless they order a special $150 drill bit.....
Luckly, the Willis Wheeler Package comes with a posi/clutch pack style limited slip. Mine is in good shape. When it wears out, it will cost $500 to rebuild it.
So, I had one installed in the front. $887.50 with tax.
Just had the alignment checked because it started pulling to the right on the way home yesterday. Seems one of my tires has developed a problem, possibly a ply separation. Nice. Got less than 20,000 miles on the OE tires. Same tires they put on the Rubicons. Well, they have spent lots of time bouncing around in the desert. Not much tread left on them. E

Flushed the power steering fluid on the F-350 today. Pretty darned easy and only took 30 minutes or so.

I did that to my Tacoma a couple years ago. Felt good to do so much good for so little effort. smile
