    The rearmost linkage allows toe adjustment. It has an eccentric bolt at the end attached to the subframe. That's it.

    At 250,000 miles, I'm a believer that camshafts and valve tappets are on borrowed time. I'd replace them around 200-250,000 proactively. The bottom end is probably good for 500,000, but I'd do the...

    Practically speaking, a slow leak is merely a nuisance. If the case isn't draining to dryness in short order, you can just keep it topped off and keep on trucking as long as you want. But, you do...

    For the OP, the external fuel test still stands and is very quick (probably takes 2 minutes) and doable without a fuel pressure test gauge if you don't have one. You can quickly and easily verify if...

    I've never replaced it, but I can't imagine it's that difficult. I don't think there's any special alignment needed. Adding oil is easy. There's a fill plug that you remove and pump the oil...

    Fuel, spark, compression. Probably easiest to check in that order. For fuel, add an external source, i.e. small amount of starter fluid shot into the intake. Do you get fire? If you get fire on...

    The net will hold items without the plastic wings on either side. I still don't get it. Oh well, I've got more important things to do today... :)

    From your tone, it sounds like you should cash out of it now and move on. If the cash value of the vehicle is most concerning to you, the worst thing you could do is drive it until it's worthless. ...

    Next time I pull some fish out of the Mojave Desert, I have a place for them. Cool. What's up with the ridiculous flaps? Anyone? Quite a lot of effort went into designing these things so they'd...
  13. What are these flaps under the rear floor for?

    There's the net on the underside of the floor section, too. Is that supposed to hold something from the factory?

    That's the sheet metal of the spare tire well that is separating from the rear bulkhead. That spare tire well metal is super thin and crappy. I know because I just welded the mounts for my air...

    Ah, I can barely see the straps now in the pic. That works for recovery if you're bogged down, but what do you do to change a tire? Do you still carry the factory jack? And, nice trip!
