  1. its good to be back in Idaho for the holidays!
  2. Post history shows you’ve already started a thread on this exact question in April and got great answers......
  3. So far, I’ve only seen forums as legitimate platforms for real technical discussions- the archiving function of forums is far superior to any other medium, especially things like *cough* Facebook *cough* groups
  4. Many/some VQ’s burn oil...... there’s a good portion of them that do, know that if you buy one, or test drive it for long enough to find out.
  5. Lol, CE meaning civil engineering. I like the coursework ( and even did some job shadowing). That’s what’s available the most of in Idaho. It’s been good so far! I’m more mechanically inclined/interested than a few of my ME friends haha, it’s fun getting to work in shops and put together stuff with your hands. thanks for watching, dropped on this weekend, and plan to squeeze out a few more during 2020, especially if school closes at thanksgiving of this year.
  6. Awesome to hear my channel helped you out! She looks great! I’m studying for a BS CE myself right now, have lots of ME friends and roommates.
  7. Eh, I could do without it. I wasn’t enjoying trying to explain it to my non-gear head passengers. It makes the conditions look worse than they are, and I’ll be sticking to 4WD moving forward.
  8. Saw this pop up in comments on my YouTube channel. They both got marked as spam by YouTube. whats the real advantage of a discord compared to other forms of communication....?
  9. So, with the first snow today, I got to see the performance of the lokka in snow. So far, in a couple of inches of fresh powder, I was pretty impressed with how the vehicle handles. Turning at low speeds wasn't too difficult, and the lokka would actually unlock and allow differential action at low speeds, maintaining a tight turn radius. I suspect that Ice will not be very fun with the lokka, but this setup is probably as good or better than typical 4WD in general snowy road conditions. The vehicle self centered super easily, was way less squirrely than in 2WD, and had lots of traction. See the video below for more. I wasn't super fond of how the LSD behaved, especially when in RWD only. Pretty squirrely driving, and not that great in the snow. Definitely enough traction to get around, but the rear end swings out pretty easily.
  10. I’ve had good luck with my smittybilt Kenentic strap. I used it last winter to pull a Suburban out of a snowy ditch, and less impressively to flip a RAZR back onto its wheels. Slightly lower weight rating than the ARB, but not too bad Link: https://www.amazon.com/Smittybilt-CC120-Snatch-Strap-Rating/dp/B003EP2XIU/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=smittybilt+kinetic+rope&qid=1603379060&sr=8-5
  11. At that price, a full rear bumper and tire carrier might be more cost effective. A tube bumper with a simple tire carrier could likely be had at that price, or an OEM swingate if you can find one.
  12. https://www.bxbuilt.com/product-page/toyota-h4-diy-kit-4runner-tacoma-tundra-sequoia If you have questions about any of the products, the owners name is Andrew and you should be able to find him on Facebook and Instagram as BX BUILT. might as well drop a link to YouTube video too
  13. save up, and get something that will really boost performance... In my experience, LED bulbs were only a mild boost in lighting, and weren’t great in snow or rain. these are bi - LED projectors. It’s a DIY kit sold by BX built. Obviously gonna cost 2-4 times as much as aftermarket LED bulbs, but you get what you pay for- clean cutoff and intense light throw. Even a cheaper amazon or eBay projector kit is likely a better route.
  14. It’s a 99.5 warn hubs are a little over $200 https://www.amazon.com/WARN-29091-Premium-Manual-Hubs/dp/B000CQDPIQ/ref=asc_df_B000CQDPIQ/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312026024613&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2703211307294135226&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9018273&hvtargid=pla-491820788601&psc=1
