  1. If it has an even more refined engine, good ground clearance, and good independent suspension, count me in. Oh, I still have to have perfectly fold-flat seats though.
  2. Those are the horns I should have put on. I may be interested in selling them. I was just keeping them as a "backup". I'm not sure how much they will cost to ship though- they seem heavy. If you make me a decent offer, I will look into shipping and let you know what it will be. Fedex seems to be the cheapest so I'll check with them first.
  3. Counter-clockwise- 100%. I have never loosened something by going clockwise except for bike pedals on the left side, I believe.
  4. Yeah, it is behind your glovebox but follow directions. I didn't do it myself but I think you only take the glovebox lid off- your manual should have that in it. It was really dirty and clogged up like crazy. There was no way much air was flowing through that thing.
  5. Don't replace your stock shocks unless you have a lot of miles on them. I actually switched back to stock and like the ride much better. The Emu shocks, while tough enough, are a bit too stiff and bouncy over smal bumps. I like the way the truck absorbs road imperfections while still being stiffer than stock due to the Emu springs. The stock shocks do a better job of controlling the springs.
  6. Well, I switched back to the stock shocks and kept everything else as-is (Emu Springs and KYB struts). I actually like the ride better. The back is not as skittish over small bumps and I guess that is becausue the shocks have more "give" to them. I think I'll keep this setup for a while. The Pathy seemed to be a bit too jumpy over bumps and it felt like I wasn't getting much shock absorption but that's just me. I'll see how this goes and switch back if needed. Anyway, I had the headlights bulbs replaced with the Vision Plus bulbs- definitely more light on the road- fog lamps too and they are brighter than stock. I also had two Fiamm horns (Freeway Blaster)s put in. The high/low combo sounds very cool and is louder than stock though not crazy loud like I had hoped for The sound is cool too- almost Cadillac-like (in a good way). I also had the in-cabin filter replaced and lemme tell ya- that thing was gross. I didn't realize that I had one and it was WAY overdue. Maybe I'll put an air horn in this summer- I like loud horns. It works wonders on soccer moms who are putting on makeup or talking on the phone and forget to go at a green light. One shreik of that and you get a priceless jump and makeup all over the place -bounce-
  7. He may have $10,000 of drug money in the glove compartment.
  8. I've been in Denver for a year but I'm moving back to Kansas City in two weeks (don't ask- long story ) I LOVE Colorado- I've been to so many places and Colorado is the best option if you love the outdoors, the mountains, and a state that thrives on building trails for wheelers, hikers, bikers, and whoever else. I have become a moutain biking fool here but you can't help it. The trails in the Front Range are stunning. Anyway, I have a feeling I will be back before long and when I do, I'm staying for good
  9. With the OME springs all the way around (Medium), my back end sits just slightly higher (good for highway stability ) but not by much at all. I hardly notice it and when i am going somewhere, it's normally with the dog and hear or bikes and gear. Once I get a couple of hunderd lbs, it sits completely level- same thing with one or two people in back. I have no problem with it. The Pathy handles so well now and seriously, I can't tell unless I look at it and really start thinking about it. Hmm...maybe the back is setttling a bit with my fat Boxer back there all the time.
  10. I have the OME setup as well and love it. The truck handles much better now. I have KYB GR2 struts since OME didn't make them a year ago- do they make struts now? The rear is a little stiff when the truck is empty and I don't really like that but I'm used to it and it only feels stiff on smallish, quick, bumps. With a full load, it is great though and nice on the highway as well. It actually raised my truck because of a lack of sag as in the stock springs.
  11. Well, I like the idea of protecting the back from little fender benders but is it substantial enough? Anyway, I currently have a hitch mounted bike rack on. I have it on because I mountain bike a lot; not for show. Anyway, I suppose on a center impact, it would spear though a foot of someone's vehicle before they actually touched my bumper. That's what I worry about in crazy highway traffic- that someone behind me will rear-end me. I always keep enough distance in front but I notice most people come up pretty close behind me, especially women. At 70 mph, a car length is never enough and I often have my Boxer in the back so it worries me or I would just be happy letting them eat my bike rack.
  12. Well, I used the Amsoil SDF 20 filter that I used on my Accord. It fits just fine so if you use it, make sure the gasket size is in fact the same and you should be fine. If I continue to use these tiny filters, I'm going to stick with the Mobil 1 or Nissan filter. I have a feeling they are both good though I would like to cut open the Nissan one to compare it to the Mobil 1 construction- or send a Nissan filter to that Oil Filter test guy.
