Well ok the Company is American but most of their vehicles are not built in the USA.

My ranger was "assembled" in St. Paul MN, but 90% of its parts are not made in the USA.

I'm a Ford guy and own a Chevy too. Don't worry, brand loyalty is dumb IMO haha

Replaced my rotors and pads today, sooo much better. One rotor was warped and causing a lot of vibration under braking and one was groove pretty bad. Wanted to paint the calipers while I had em off but it's too cold and wet today. Oh well.

Yeah dont worry about brand loyalty, I hate when people bark their head off about it; choose what fits your needs, has cheap repair costs, and is common (which ties into cheap parts prices lol)
And dont worry i have a chevy, ford and honda lol

Generally from what I've seen people get outa buck shots are not very good, if they changed the rubber compound it might have changed

And look for threads about the brand; the "what did you do to your truck today" thread isnt the best place to find really specific info on tires lol

Replaced my Coolant Reservoir after failing at trying to patch my original cracked leaky one. New one looks better and doesn't seep coolant.
Still running hot though? According to Ultra Gauge Coolant temp is 250-260???
