  1. View Advert Flat bed trailer This is a home made trailer, deck measures 18' x 8', a little over 26' long all together. It has 3, 5k mobile home axles, 2 are braking axles, but one of them needs new brakes. They are available on Amazon for $90 for 2 assemblies, I can provide the part number. The deck is all steel, ramps are detachable, hitch is adjustable, and has expanded metal in the A-frame to hold a tool box. All lights work, stop/turn lights are LED, and plug is wired to charge a battery. All 6 tires were purchased new 2 years ago, are DOT approved and rated for 3k each. Less than 500 miles on them. I was pretty religious about greasing and adjusting the bearings every spring, but haven't in the last 2 years due to lack of use. The winch and tool box are not included, there is a square tube on the front where I had the winch mounted. This trailer is home made, but I have gone through the proper channels to have a VIN number assigned and title created for it as it weighs just under 3k lbs empty. Title is in hand. Only selling due to lack of use and I now have access to another trailer should I have need for one. Advertiser Sycostang67 Date 09/20/2018 Price $2,300.00 Category Personal Stuff

  3. I've got a low stall with stock injectors and no issues.

    3rd Gen Front Brake Upgrade

    I did this swap early this year, I was pretty surprised at the difference it made.

    Knocking brakes

    I replaced the side that was knocking with a non slotted rotor, knock is currently gone, will continue driving to see if it stays that way. If does then I will swap out the other rotor as well. The car isn't pulling either way so I didn't see an immediate need to change the other one yet. If this doesn't work I can at least return one rotor.

    Dash bessel removal

    Getting the bezel off without breaking the dash or the bezel is the real trick. My bezel is currently held on by 1 factory clip, a metal brace I made and a piece of gorilla tape. That lense comes off pretty easy when the bezel is out of the way. When you get it off, hit with some mag/aluminum polish, that will help remove any light scratches. I have used clear plastic polish before, but the aluminum stuff just seems to work better. I'll use a half inch paint brush to dust around the needles on the cluster.

    Knocking brakes

    I just decided to order some new non-slotted rotors. I'm getting tired of pulling the wheel every 2-3 days to change something. Hopefully that will fix it and I can enjoy my car until winter.

    Understanding your stock turbo!

    I had wanted to do an HX swap on my truck but couldn't find any when my HY crapped out. I ended up getting a new HY for the cost of a rebuild. I guess my old turbo was pretty wasted as the truck drives totally different now. The boost builds quicker and I no longer sail past 1200*. I'll be keeping a lookout for a used HX, but at least for now the HY is keeping a grin on my face.

    Everyone post a picture of your truck!

    I don't believe for a second you made that bumper, you better make me one to prove it. Good looking truck.
  11. That's what mine was doing, I would start the truck and no air movement. It would suddenly come on a mile or minute down the road. It would work on all speeds, but sometimes changing the speed would cause it to stop working. New resistor and motor and no problems since.

    Knocking brakes

    It will happen even if the rotor is stone cold though. I live on the corner, I back out of the driveway, pull forward 20' to the stop sign and it's already knocking. I was thinking of having the rotor turned to make sure it's flat and I can look for cracks as well.

    Knocking brakes

    I wouldn't want him to send me another kit, I'd rather find the defective part and have him send me a new one of those. Since it's a group of people who have recently purchased this kit, I'm wondering if something from the supplier is messed up. Hoping we can get this figured out before anyone else has to go through it.

    Knocking brakes

    I have, he's trying to help as well. It's just that he's sold hundred of these kits with no issues but suddenly 5-6 people are just now having problems. We are all trying some different things to see if we can fix it or find the cause.

    Knocking brakes

    Well I just ruled out the wheel weight, I only have one and it doesn't come anywhere near touching the caliper. I guess I will take the rotor in and have it turned just in case. If that doesn't work then I guess I will have to blow an extra $200 on some flat rotors.
