    The cummins Disco was getting in the high teens, correct? It’d be interesting to hear real world mileage— I’m guessing 20 or below based on what I’ve heard so far, but I am interested as the 2.8 is on the table for my next build...but not at those levels. I’m hoping it’s considerably more...

    New Defender, 2020

    I bet every one of us are thinking “what if they actually don’t fuck this up” and come out with a cool truck? Seriously, deep down, you feel it. It’d be awesome. Vegas odds on that as of this morning were 1,468,532:1. Put a fiver down. Heck,better odds than Lotto...

    That is a symptom of a faulty valve (like my Mitral). Glad you are going to the doc--and I hope they figure out a course of treatment to get you right again! There has been so many advances in heart and circulatory responses that we are in a really good time to figure things out and...

    Empty coolant reservoir

    When I had this issue, I didn't have an external clue. I just lost coolant. I didn't have smoke/vapor in the exhaust or mixing with oil either. For me, I had a slipped cylinder and water was getting by the jacket and into the cylinder and was getting burnt away. You can take out your plugs...

    Empty coolant reservoir

    I would fill it, pressure check the system and look for leaks. Sometimes you can't see a leak as it leaks onto something warm and evaporates before leaving a tell tale sign---but those are rare in my experience it is typically a head gasket or slipped cylinder.

    I have a mulitiude of issues and some of the symptoms you are describing are spot on but I was amazed at some of the things that I went through. First--in regards to acid reflux--I am 100% in JavelinaDave's camp---when I am overweight I get acid reflux, when I am not, I don't. That simple. But...

    Champion AGM Battery - 25% off + $40 rebate at Pepboys

    They are less susceptible to acquiring a dead cell due to vibration between plates in an off road environment--since that is how I use my truck, that is enough. Then you get into the fact that they don't have any potential to leak battery acid in the unlikely event that I have rolled...

    RH/LF Rear Galvanized Cappings

    Now if they were just NAS cappings from a 95/97! I am after those (really just the right rear) if anyone has one... (no upper hole and the lower hole is only a 1/2 hole but big for the larger tail lights...)

    Winch wiring?

    Mine have survived the amp draw just fine for 15 years, same switch. As for switching the hot or the ground, you can do either. There is a fallacy that if you switch the ground that you don't get arc's but that isn't true as you are still breaking or starting a circuit--Just disconnect...
