    Got a new truck

    And my love/hate relationship with Chevrolet continues on. The poor Geo isn't what she used to be so I wanted to upgrade to something that could haul my Jeep and a car trailer plus camping gear and get somewhat decent gas mileage. So Automotive Concepts found me a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500...

    Slow 6, help please!

    The car is a 1999 pontiac grand prix with a junk yard motor thrown in, I know the previous owner and the car will shut off on occasion, especially when the car turns left. Sometimes it starts back up, sometimes it wont. Not the alternator, or the battery. All the connections seem good and tight...

    I'm gonna miss her

    Last night I decided I needed something new so I threw the Cherokee up on CL at a high price just to test the waters. Well, a guy called me at 1pm with cash in hand and bought it. I am happy that after everything I've done to it, the truck only cost me $50 to own. However, Im somewhat bummed to...

    Any one good with law?

    So my friend had an accident back in early 2007. He slid through a stop light on ice and T-boned a lady in her car. After the accident, she got out of her car and was walking around, perfectly normal and refused an ambulance ride. She did not go directly to a physician or talk to a lawyer or...

    80 XS850 starting problem

    So I made a bit of headway with my bike and we went to start it with the kick start and it felt like it isnt catching. It kicked over when we took the bike apart and while it was apart but since we put the crank cover under the stater on, this has been happening. Everything went back together...

    Few suspension questions

    So the Heep is gonna get 2" more of lift via coil spacers and lift blocks in the rear (right now, it is a 3" on 31" all terrains) to give it a 5" of lift to fit 33" Mudstar M/Ts. If I were to put my 1" drop brackets on my cross member, would I have to run a slip yoke eliminator or do you think...
