    Period "Looking" Tires Question

    Been eyeing Falken M/Ts for some time now. They're a bit more conservative with the sidewall design, less expensive to replace when you start using them offroad, and are available in both 235 and 255 section widths. It's also possible I'm just a sucker for their marketing.

    Broken half shaft (at least?)

    A 4-pin diff, ATB, Truetrac, or air locker, as well as HD shafts and CVs. It’s typically only needed if you’re doing vigorous 4-wheeling or just want that extra assurance. However, you’re in a heavier 110 with an R2.8, so there’s potentially more stress on those components depending on how you...

    Broken half shaft (at least?)

    Yes, if the center diff lock was engaged, then you should have had drive from the rear. I'd agree that'd the linkage needs a thorough looking at. Losing a front half-shaft would also have me suspicious of the diff and CVs. They aren't the strongest and there can be quite a shock load on them...

    Anyone running Valvoline VR1 20/50?

    It does. Probably fine if you live in a year round warm climate. I ran 5w-50 in my last RV8. Mobile 1 also has a 15w-50.

    There's got to be a story behind that inventory.

    Looks great from the outside. How's it looking underneath? Nice views of the valley out there too.

    Well, that was dumb.

    Looks to be at home in its natural habitat. Only too deep when the leg coolant comes through the vent flaps.

    Short bed pickups work well for me. I want enough room to throw a fridge/cooler, fire wood, tools, animals, dirty clothes, chainsaw, etc in the back where I'm not subject to its smells, rattles, and projectile potential. I also like being able to throw things in the back, or retrieve them...

    Similar proportions, except that the 130 sweeps up at the rear which IMO works better.

    Vent Knob Options

    I don't know. Didn't realize you had the earlier part. It's already broken, so you don't have much to lose.

    Vent Knob Options

    The stock one is AIT710030 and will look a lot better than a bare metal post. There are fancy aluminum ones too if that's the style you want.

    New shoes look good. Notice much difference in handling?

    Spill Return Rail Leak

    As long as the washers are real copper, I wouldn't think thickness makes much difference. Copper does work harden after deformation so ideally they should be replaced with each use. The Cummins return washers appear to be about the same thickness as standard LR ones. If this happened in the...
