The whole 3.6 was designed from the ground up, with a clean sheet of paper, to be as light and compact as possible. It has lots of plastic and "different" designs in it. And since it's a new...

Yeah, but it's still nice to have a winch in many situations. Like high altitude and deep snow. Sliding off the road could be very serious, and hours of hard work may not be realistic. I've also...

This makes my point perfectly.

Higher gearing on a high reving engine that doesn't get to it's usable torque curve until about 2100 RPM means poor mileage and poor performance with higher gearing...

Sounds like you are not going to get a Rubi, but if you did, you'd get 4.10. That gear with the 3.6L is perfect. 60 MPH puts you at about 2000-2100 RPM and that is where it gets efficient. These...

I have been trying to order my Zeon 10S.

It accepts the promo code but won't complete the order. There is an "internal error" and "needs shipping info" message. Grrrrrrrrr.

Look at Tractor Supply for a nice selection of come-alongs. Get a good one with a snatch block. Bigger is better if you are stuck. Also, a nice piece of low stretch rope will extend the reach and a...

Different setup on these. It's not a spin in filter with the ring on the end that can be left befind. The O ring fits over a threaded, screw in cap. The ring is trapped between the outside of that...

The track bar won't cause tow issues, but it will cause steering wheel misalignment as stated earlier. That's one way of seeing which is bent. Plus it's a weak design with a big bow in the middle....

If the wheels look like they are running straight with each other, meaning no Tow problem, it's the track bar or the link from the pitman arm. If the wheels are not straight, or aligned with each...

It will run a printer or a drop light or a 120 volt laptop charger. You can charge battery powered drills.

It doesn't have much power, but it is useful.

The only way I could see that happening is if the cap was not screwed in far enough to trap the O ring. Did you see oil all over the engine and everywhere?

I think that design is very good and...

Can you be more specific? What do you mean "blew the oil filter O ring"? While driving? Did you lose your oil on the road? Did you drive it with no oil?

The O rings are trapped in there such...

Not in this case. Bad advice.

Something is bent and it should not just be adjusted out. Likely the track bar or drag link is damaged. Once it's fixed and the wheel is back on center, the...

The extra 1/2" height of the 285s means nothing in off road capability. The extra width does change things though. Better in sand and worse on ice, for instance, depending on the tread pattern. I...

I've got 285/70r17s on my Rubi with 4.10 gears. 4.10 is perfect for all around use and 6th is useful at about 55 or 60 MPH on up.

Being overgeared (3.21) really sucks with the loss of 6th most...
