      Guess it depends on what one grew up with... My daughters can't conceive of life pre-smart phone. And neither can I, frankly, even though I look back on that time with fondness.

      Since Jon already said it, yes, you are old. Even I'm getting close to that label. I really like that my '02 and '10 4Rs have a t-case lever. The '10 is a Trails Edition so it has all the KDSS, Crawl Control, HDC, rear locker, and so on. I...

      You and me both. There is something about shifting into something that doesn't require sensors, relays, computers, and electric motors.

      So cute and ugly at the same time.

      The technology (and the hyperbole and the marketing) are mind blowing. That said, Angie and I just bought a 2018. And its level of tech intimidates me. KDSS, Crawl Control, Terrain Select, ATRAC??? I do understand the rear locker and the...

      juane reacted to krazykat69's post in the thread LX 470 Total Electrical Failure with Like Like.
      My first guess is the alternator is bad. Especially if it is the original alternator. Being a 1998 LX 470, that alternator is getting pretty old. Hopefully that's the issue, but there could be a second issue, too. The LX may start shutting down...

      So curious. I suspect it's a POS issue. As in Previous Owner Syndrome.

      Just continuity.

      Just as we were topping out the Moki Dugway on Cedar Mesa everything went dark. Car continued to run fine so we proceeded to our camp and had a great hike in upper Slickhorn Canyon. Packed up the second morning, cutting our vacation early to...

      In NM it's a good idea to run a pre-filter di yo the dust. It will help keep the airfilter clean.

      Yes. I’m from up north. Northern gravel highways are high speed dust bowls and snorkel can definitely help your engine. Prefilters do work. I don’t have one but that’s just because northern willows make oak trees look feeble and they would...

      I don't think they're cliché until you stick a jack-o-lantern on top in the fall. They serve a real purpose.

      juane reacted to alia176's post in the thread I'm gonna need a bigger lift..... with Like Like.
      Haul trucks at Morenci copper mine run on these mammajammas. They weigh 8k lbs and need a V16 quadruple turbo diesel Cat engine to move them around. I believe these are 200ton haul/dump trucks that move ore from the excavator to the mill. I...

      Strength from the link so they don’t bend when they hit a rock and increased articulation if they have heim or JJ ends. And adjustments to move the axle position or correct pinion angle.

      Any experience with these? Mine has been dismal.... a severe clunk when driving on anything other than smooth pavement. Pretty much from day one. The mounting bolts, bushings and sleeves are well greased, the front frame mount brackets are...

      juane reacted to Dumpolina's post in the thread Sometimes gotta just go with Like Like.
      When in doubt, just go. Reluctant about this little neglectorino with some odd indications the motor has been very hot. Only one way to find out if it’s trustworthy, just go. Headed up to Jeff and Larry’s party beach and ran Jeff’s scenic route...

      Juane - I just posted up a "disregard" notice, but thanks for the offer of help. Thanks also for the suggestions about getting it up and running.

      Evan, Timing may not work for your friend but I'm headed to Las Cruces midweek but could swing through Reserve Tuesday. I have a winch and the usual recovery gear. Yes, the plugs should be pulled and the engine cranked to spit out the oil in...

      Angie and I were less than excited that our newly-acquired LX 470 had a snorkel installed by the previous owner. I'm sure they have ligit function: deep water crossings and getting the intake above some level of dust... but I suspect their main...
