Warsh.... I've told my wife 100 times that's the way it's pronounced. Thank you.
Yes, we warsh the squarsh! Or at least, that is the vernacular of my Iowa ancestors (Dad's family).
P.S. We got the bed of the RAM organized. We leave Monday, but we are excitedly prepping!
Relocated the #murderspork
Sure you shouldn't have that mounted like a joust instead?
Could install a 90° actuator I guess...
The point is not to spear someone, but to strike fear into their hearts.
Went from Summer Mode to Winter Mode....Took off the soft roll up bed cover and put the canopy back on....
Went and had a Saturday afternoon hamburger and looked at it..
Guess you could say I went & had lunch with the camper...lol
It clicked 257,000 miles, a 200 or so round trip into the mountains for a 2 nighter...
Replaced the radiator, free under warranty.
Cleaned and adjusted the brakes.
Oil change and filter, under $15 with a spare quart...
After 5-1/2 years with her, and a full season of hauling our new (to us) StarCraft, we sadly will be letting her go.
She has been an awesome Trail-Rig, and has taken us anywhere we dared to go!
She has absolutely done everything we have ever asked of her. She's never let us down, left us stuck, or left us stranded!
She has recovered many downed vehicles, and other broken Jeeps off the trail.
She is truly one of the best vehicles that I have ever owned.................
Although she's got a great little bulletproof 4.0 straight-six engine, we have realized that here in the Colorado mountains we just need something with a little more pulling power for towing.
I really wish I could keep her, but we just don't have the room for another vehicle.
Nothing yet. But, since the month is almost over, I'm getting an oil change tomorrow and shopping for rear suspension air bags.
Made a modification to the left front fender and door. With the help of something deer to me.
After putting just shy (by about 100km's) of 100,000 KM's on the original factory tires (rated to 90,000 KM's) I had the Ram outfitted with some new shoes.. After doing some research and window shopping to see who had what in stock, I went with BF Goodrich TA/KO2's.. So far they have worked great in two snow storms and a few freezing rain storms.. Next up is having the brakes done, right after DW's car gets a couple new ball joints and control arm..
Next month - RS9000XL shocks on the front. Did the rear a few months ago and being able to tune it helps.
Added a diamond plate tool box to the truck bed - freebie. Gives more dry storage area and has room under it for protected storage.
Contemplating a trip to Yellowstone next year, 5-6000 mile trip. Truck will need all fluids flushed/changed, spark plugs - 16 of em - belts/hoses, suspension checked and new tires.
Added more light, works great!!! The hood was already dented, I'll move the light to the grill/bumper when I get the new hood on.
Nah! Keep it where you have it! I got a good laugh out of seeing the light on a car like that. Kinda makes me want to take my '06 Civic and put a light bar above the windshield...just to see the looks on other people's faces.
In reality I think auxiliary lights like this hidden on a vehicle can be very useful...so long as you're not using them to flash other drivers on the freeway.
Just purchased new Monroe OESpectrum shocks and struts for the RAV4 and will be installing them soon.
Had an issue with hearing noise from the front end. Brought it to my mechanic and turned out to be a wheel bearing issue. He had to replace the right front hub! We only have 67k miles on it. Weird though, on my old '02 F150 I went thru two right front hubs as well. At least it's fixed and it's nice and quite now!
It is actually quite common for the right side to go bad before the left. Reason is quite simple, you tend to hit more items (curbs, potholes ect) with the right side of the vehicle. It is always easier to gauge where your left front tire is over the right front tire.
