Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

My parents get the joy of taking the keys away from my grandfather next weekend.

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

I had a Tahoe struck by lightening a while back. That sucked, 30 hours later it was fixed.

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

Ah. Yeah, that's another reason why we got rid of the Escape. Warranty was up, my dealer offers a Lifetime warranty on all new vehicles sold, and since I'm not going anywhere for a while, works out...

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

Are you still leasing? Or did you ever actually buy one.

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

I really wish more people would jump on the diesel band wagon. The Equinox is about the only vehicle worth a shit you can get with a diesel that isn't a 3/4 ton truck. Fuck that VW shit. MB and...

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

I've done them before, just thought it was odd someone towed that to a chevy dealer for us to fix. But I guess we are the closest place, I work in the middle of absolute no where. The dealership...

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

So this is FWD 1.6 turbo diesel, the Escape was 2.0 turbo AWD. Off the line to about 50mph, I'd say they are about the same, the turbo diesel has gobs of torque. 240ish, but only 136 or so hp. The...

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

Ah, didn't misplace it. Never actually got it. Was in a hurry to leave the dealership so my wife could get to work.

Not a big deal, I'm the lead tech at the dealership we bought it from.

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

Might be replacing my wife's 15 escape with an 18 equinox diesel. The employee pricing I get on it is ridiculous, as is the fuel economy out of that.

If only the fuel economy on the colorado...

Re: Cowl drain passenger side 2011 ranger

Pull up your carpet and make sure the floor isnt rusted out. There should be drains for both sides of the cowl. Come out near the mudflap.

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

It's in the works, I want to pay off some credit cards first, and need to dump about $3k into some home repairs. Realistically though, I want to build the ****pit first and then do the new computer.

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

The monitors, wheel / shifter / pedals are pretty damn sweet. The computer itself needs some serious updating since it's 7 years old. Trying to push 3 monitors at 1920x1080 resolution? ...
