    3rd gen brake conversion on a dually

    driving in California with high speed stop and go, I would like better emergency braking not just looking at overall braking for normal driving. I think bigger rotors, bigger pads should generate more power and less heat. I agree with you for towing and or "normal" driving exhaust brake is good way to go. Ultimately would like both long term.
  2. I have read plenty about the 3rd gen brake conversion, will the "dually" aspect of this change the rules any?

    Doors and hinges

    Where is BFE? Anywhere near Inland Empire California? You make this sound so simple :-) I did a bushing kit in my '97 Ford and almost drove the truck down a boat launch before I wanted to spend another minute in that armpit of the door trying to work on the hinge HAHA

    dollars and sense always seem to get in my way with this truck... Its worth in the open market lets say $5-7k (350k miles and tired synchros in the nv5600 scares people :-) ) and I am looking at $500 in door hinges or 10% of the value of the truck.. I always have to rely on my justifiers to get these things done. If I want the door hinges to match the red paint, I can probably double the cost... This truck is lucky I really like it HAHAHA

    So it looks like OEM is likely double the money of LMC.. The big question is the quality difference double?

    Just through a dealer? or is there a good online source for OEM parts that I won't feel like I need a shower after doing business with them?

    AM I reading this right? $39.95 ea? so $160.00 for four hinges? L & R uppers and a pair of lowers which don't seem L/R specific. I guess another $40 in hardware kits.

    Both sides are bad. Where is the best place to buy replacements?

    fighting through my scenario............

    Nope, not even close, GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM, but people not making a stand is only fueling that fire. It’s $15000 so they can ALL get paid... RIDICULOUS

    fighting through my scenario............

    We have to get the citizens of the country to move closer to the center. We are allowing the parties and media to keep us separated on a very small percentage of differences. GUN CONTROL = big issue but I bet most of us agree it should be harder for people with issues to get guns. we probably even mostly agree we don’t need OVER THE TOP fire power. we probably agree that households with children minors, mentally ill, or unstable people should keep guns Locked up. probably agree that a gun show shouldn’t be a free for all I could go on and on, but I think we as people on both sides of the aisle get too hung up on the small percentage of issues and don’t look hard enough at all of the things we agree on. i try not to pay too much attention and live my life, but I have kids which raises concern. we all have friends that don’t agree with us politically, yet we are still friends? Think about it for a minute. thankful we all agree on the best Diesel engine here. I happen to wish my Cummins was in a better truck but I don’t want to start that political conversation 😀😀😀😀😀 i like that that we can speak openly here. Thank you for reading my rant hahahhahaha

    Politicians and media teamed up are on a course toward civil unrest. I kinda like Howard Schulz because neither party does 🤪🤪🤪🤪 Tired of voting for the lesser of two evils?

    he is a good guy.. just the oddest reason to choose a team that I have ever heard.

    fighting through my scenario............

    California is not bad, weather is good, people are good, its very nice here. Its just not as green as the leadership here would like to portray it is. Work moved me here and while this is probably not my final destination in life, I am going to enjoy it while I am here. Everywhere has its pros and cons. Can't label California as a whole, my next door neighbor rooted for the Patriots because Tom Brady supports Trump...

    Days like today lots of snow

    It never changed from that, my buddies in Buckley never had to smog anything. From what I was told (which could be wrong) is that there will be no more emission testing in the state.

    I just moved from Washington and while they are hypocrites as well, read below. I moved a little too soon... :-) "After 38 years, Washington's emission check program will end Jan. 1, 2020. After this time, vehicle owners will no longer be required to have their vehicle's emissions tested before renewing their registration. Vehicles scheduled for testing in 2019 still need an emission test before they can renew their tabs." https://ecology.wa.gov/Air-Climate/Air-quality/Vehicle-emissions/Emissions-check-ends I haven't shoveled rain, but the rain here has created work for me shoveling dirt that has run down the hill in my yard.
