What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Recommended Posts

4 of these for the Expedition.

Rebates w/ Goodyear CC! http://www.goodyeart...rce=GoodyearWeb

Sharp tires, father in law has a set of those on his 05 F150 FX4. They came on the truck when he bought it brand new, ~50K miles currently and they have so much tread left!

then spliced in my new connector for the abs sensor.

Thanks on the rebate heads up. I really like them so far. I was able to squeeze over 65k out of the Uniroyals that were on the truck when I bought it. I probably could had lasted another year if I took them down to the wear bars but last years blizzard made me think twice. Even with 4x4 it was a little tough getting around. I found some untouched snowcovered streets this morning and I was blown away by the grip even without using the 4-wheel drive. Now all I need is an alignment to make sure everything is where it should be. I just really like this truck. dsc0175k.jpg

Nice, very sharp truck! The Wranglers will do excellent for you in times of need. My father in law's a huge Ford fan, granted he put in 40+ years at a Ford stamping plant in Buffalo, NY. He doesn't mind the Volvo but it has to park in the street when I go there, unless his daughter is my passenger or I need to perform surgery in his garage. :lol:

A couple of hours into pulling the head off the car, got as far as the intake manifold. They don't make it easy for DIY'ers, do they?

While I was draining coolant, dropped a Thor on it to see how it'd look.

It's really too bad the tire is a 225/45-17, else I'd pull all of them from my 245.
