    Steering Issue

    Yes, the system does require additional oil but at this point my dipstick is reading 1/8" low. I was planning to wait for a lower reading on dipstick before adding oil. It is possible that the system had some amount of oil above dipstick gauge. As I stated before still adjusting to 6.0 and...

    In the future I will replace my OEM LT 245/75R/17E tires. I normally automatically buy Michelin Tires. Do the tire manufactures have an ANSI test method to measure tire rolling resistance? If so do you give up life of tire mileage? Tire load specs? A less resistance tire should...

    40 years ago today.

    Stated very well Bushpilot I agree 100% that our service men/women have given 110% so we can stand on our soapboxes to make our point of view. But never forget the ones that have given all for our rights.
