    Towing on an open trailer. In neutral or in park even though it is strapped down? What say ye?

    A few years ago, I sold our old Grand Cherokee to an old guy that showed up with a nice heavy duty car/equipment type trailer with proper D rings. etc. Well, this guy opened the front door windows of the Jeep, tossed a smallish ratchet strap through the car, and hooked to either the fenders or...

    "how was the ride with your dad?"

    My Dad taught me to drive a straight on his really nice '55 Dodge pickup with the 241-V8 and 3 on the tree. This was in 1972 or so. Wish I had that truck today! I had already learned to drive an automatic on a clapped out 62 Corvair that Dad picked up at an impound auction. He got it cheap...

    In Park or in gear. E brake on. Strapped tightly. The more secure, the better. Can't have too much, but you can sure have too little if something fails or breaks....

    Whomp Whomp Whomp noise?

    This does not concern you? >"It moves up and down a little but I can’t measure it. " I would think it shouldn't have any movement there. Sounds like your bushing is worn out. The new seal is flexible...

    Whomp Whomp Whomp noise?

    With the driveshaft and yoke issues you mentioned, I would advise to check the tailshaft bushing in the transmission. If you previously had a worn out yoke, and out of balance driveshaft, that bushing probably took a beating. And if it is worn and sloppy, your driveshaft will "flop around" a...

    Pinholes keep showing up in ONE tire on my truck... WTF?

    Hey guys, this is on my daily beater Ford Ranger, but I could use some help. I have a weird issue with the left front tire on my Ranger. It was low, so I checked and found a leak with soapy water. The leak was from deep within the tread, and we could hardly see it. I paid my tire guy to plug it...
