  1. Many of the repairs to current model year Chrysler vehicles require software updates to complete. These updates are only available through Chrysler's portal called DealerConnect and TechConnect. Unless you work at a dealership, you have to pay for a 48 hour window in which you can access these websites and obtain the software needed. Many independent shops refuse to pay the money required to do that. So basically, many shops simply cannot fix modern vehicles because they do not have the knowledge, equipment or permissions to do it.
  2. I work at a large dealership. I can see the angle they are trying to use and understand it but I don't agree with it. Shops are just going to have to start ponying up the cash to get the specialized equipment, training and permissions to continue to fix modern vehicles. Fun fact: Our technicians cost an average of $135,000 to train from apprentice to Master Certified Chrysler Technician.
  3. You have got to do something extremely stupid to damage Amsteel-Blue. If you get a synthetic line make sure it is Amsteel-Blue manufactured by Samson Rope. Don't worry about abrasion. The stuff is designed some of it to happen. It actually protects the Dyneema fibers. Source: Good friend is an engineer for Samson Rope and another friend owns a Bering Sea fishing boat and uses nothing else. Something else will break before this line. That said, the Captain uses a 12k Harbor Freight winch on his '78 CJ-5 AMC 360. I plan on using the same on my Frontier.
  4. Well, first I will give the last picture I took of the Pathfinder. She was awesome. I took this picture 10 minutes after I signed for the Frontier. First snow. Playing around in a gravel pit. Her first overnighter. It was cold. Put the hitch to use on the way down. And this.
  5. Not that I can remember. If you are having trouble getting it to bleed, you should be able to cycle the key a few times and have it activate the pump during the selfe diagnosis.
  6. I love it. I actually bought it from the much hated Howard Lincoln's son. It's already spent many, many nights in the mountains in deep snow and mud.
  7. It's true. I sold my '91 Pathfinder and bought a 2001 Frontier Crew Cab. Anyways, I haven't been on here in a long time so I wanted to say hi.
  8. A lot. My truck is my bug out vehicle.
  9. 187k on my '92. Bought it 2 years ago with 174k on it.
  10. Decided to show my fiance the hunting cabin out in the Cascades.
  11. 21 gallons?? I've only ever squeezed 15.5 in there when the fuel light was coming on.
  12. Uhhhh...what? That is nothing like Texas. Open carry is illegal and you must have a license to carry concealed.
  13. I'm not looking for 300 Whisper quiet, just something to reduce the initial report. Plus, 7.62x39 is stupid cheap still.
  14. Left front: cell phone Right front: car keys and change Left rear: knife right rear: wallet Work jacket Left pocket: work phone right pocket:Van keys Left arm pocket: pen
  15. I'll try. All I have is my phone and it's hard to fild while using both hands to fly. You can look up Flyzone Albatros on youtube and see plenty of videos of it flying.
  16. Yup. Proportional throttle, elevator and rudder. Runs of a 1 cell, 130 mAh LiPo battery.
  17. 14.5 inch wingspan, 3 channel, 1 oz flying weight. I'm going to take it to the shop tomorrow and strafe the techs.
  18. You better believe it. Everything he said is true. And the MSD will only get you maybe 1/2 hp over a properly functioning, stock ignition system. Mud flaps in front of a tire? What are you talking about?
  19. Anyone who passes the background check and can cough up $200 can own a suppressor. It's the same for a machine gun, but you must buy a pre-1986 gun that is transferable. Those will run you anywhere from $5000 for a beat up UZI, to $16,000 for a normal wear-and-tear MP5. To own a machine gun built after 1986 requires a TON of paper work and can only be legally owned by police, govt agency, military or Class II manufacturer. I plan on getting a suppressor for my AK to make coyote control at my cousin's farm a little less noisy for the animals and neighbors.
  20. I'm not trying to rain on anyones parade, but 99.9999% of times everything from petitiononline.com goes absolutely nowhere except to a storage backup.
  21. Well, America didn't win it's freedom from the Crown with stern words.And those surely won't keep it. But Canada still defers to the Crown, so they wouldn't know much about winning absolute freedom.
  22. I'm so confused. Why were they driving through a lake in the first place?
