Installed a new thermostat before going camping. Supposed to be a 185*, but holds a constant 202*. Got word today that they're sending me a replacement, so I suppose I'll have a high-temp t-stat should I ever feel the need.

Those look fantastic and have even better reviews.

Air filter obstruction gauge has never moved. There was a post (CWH2?) about running problems and found air filter plugged. I thought it probably was time gauge be damned.

I'd swap fuel and air filters annually which worked out to 12-15k.

I only get 1/2 that mileage on this super duty. Air filters are on mileage now like all else.

I would call them. These are absolutely the best seat covers I have ever seen or used. By using the code TACOMA WORLD gets you $75.00 off.

Yeah... that was probably due! Weird that the gauge didn't move. What symptoms did you see?

The tricky part with the diesel is that you can pull a fair bit of air through a dirty filter. So your daily driving stuff works fine, but then you hook a load up to it, and the turbo tries to spool up and.... can't. At least that's what happened to me.

No symptoms at all. Remembering your post I thought I'd change it whether it needed it or not.

Hauling a7K GVW trailer was no problem. Of course I didn't know I had a trailer flat tire at 21K GCVW last summer at 65 mph!

Nothing of note lately on the do-it-all-diesel, but I changed the transmission fluid/filters and the transfer case fluid in the wife's Durango last night.

Installed a set of Firestone Airbags and found a leaky axle seal in my Power Wagon. Dealer discovered that it was an axle bearing that went and caused the seal failure. Glad it's warranty...

Removed the AFE cold air intake that the previous owner has installed and replaced it with the factory air intake box/filter arrangement. This was on my '06 Silverado with the Duramax diesel. I don't particularly care for oiled gauze type filters and the ambiguity associated with them ( too much oil, not enough oil, when to clean, etc, etc, etc).

It's something I've wanted to do for several years and finally got around to doing.

Replaced a broken tailgate latch assembly. Real easy to get done. Seems to be a common issue with older Tundras.

Changed spark plugs in the Wife's Durango. Much easier than expected on the little 4.7L.

Dropping it off at the front end alignment/repair shop to hopefully repair damage done from a 25mph run in with a rocky side ditch.

I bought a kit to install the Tracker power steering unit on my Samurai I've had in the garage for 8 months.

Pull the rear diff cover and drained out the old fluid, inspected, cleaned and sealed it up. Need to fill it back up tonight.

Replaced all the seals in the Dana 44 (that passenger side inner seal is a hassle, but the pinion seal needed done also) and installed the rebuilt axles this morning. On my project 85 dodge 318/4speed 1/2ton shortbed. Next is the Wheel bearing/hubs. New discs and calipers, master cylinder. Then I will start a complete rebuild of the Chrysler 9 1/4 and rear brake system.

I can FINALY say (HOPEFULLY) that my 2007 5.9L Cummins will have a transmission worthy of this truck in the next week or two! Went to see a guy a gun. Ended up giving him the gun, cash and my truck for a triple plate billet torque converter, billet pump, Kevlar bands, new transmission electronics and a rebuild! I cant wait! No more nervous nelly pulling our 35' toy hauler!

Drove my 2002 F350 SRW 4x4 on a 1250 mile round trip to southern CO for family vacation. Pulled a Polaris RZR4 a bud loaned me on a utility trailer I built in my spare time the last couple months. Had another 6-700 pounds of "stuff" piled in the bed.

Old truck did fine but I do need to hunt down a set of stock wheels and tires for traveling. Factory gearing was 4:10s but the 35" Toyo MTs the previous owner hung on it makes the effective ratio more like 3:40. That's way too high for the 260hp 5.4 that makes all of it's power up around 3000 rpm. But I just kept it out of 6th gear and buzzed along at 2750rpm at 65mph. Checked mileage at every fill up and averged almost exactly 10mpg. Used one quart of oil.

I wish it was a diesel or better yet a newer SuperDuty with a 6.2 gas but for a guy who just started over by moving thousands of miles, buying a house, starting a new career, and raising a little family on one income for now, getting by with a pretty good old $5k truck allows us to take our little boy on vacation and me to go on hunting trips with my family. I guess I'll keep it running for a while longer if I can.

New calipers on the front of the Wrangler. I put new rotors and pads on a few weeks ago and had one of the old calipers promptly lock up on me. That was fun.
