  1. How many of you do your own vehicle maintenance?

    Tire Time

    Yes its that time of the year again. It falls every 3-4 years when you must purchase tires for your vehicles. Thinking about going with the same type though. I have gone through 2 sets of Nokians and have loved them. The downside they are expensive and are only a 30-35k tires. But they are the best you can get in winter without going to studs. Thinking of just going with the same all season Toyos that had I had last time. They remained soft and I had no problems with them. I did like the Firestones that @jmanz had put on his wife's vehicle though. They were nice looking tires.
  3. So goodbye to the old days of jumper cables! I bought myself one of these about 4 or 5 months ago. Noco seems to be the best but there are tons of companies making them now. The build quality is excellent. So I have had it sitting in my garage after the first initial charge and it's still at 100%. Well the other day my Dad brought their vehicle over and left the lights on and it was dead so I got to try it out and it worked flawless. No more having to carry about those heavy jumper cables and having to pull another vehicle up. It also comes in handy when you don't have room to get another vehicle close to connect cables. I think everyone should have one of these in their garage for that 'just in case' moment. I also noticed Amazon has them on sale for cheap now. When I bought mine I paid $100.
  4. I take pretty good car of my vehicle, from washing to waxing to armor all my dash, but one thing I have been slacking on is my leather seat maintenance. I don't have any cracks or anything, but I did research on how there is leather cleaner (cleans marks and oils off your seats) then there is conditioner (adds vitamin E and aloe and UV inhibitors to your leather). I picked up some nice stuff from The Chemical Guys, and it really did bring life back into them. So I will keep up on this more often now. I went years without doing anything. A cheap investment to prevent damage.
  5. Can't beat this deal if you just want a car audio player. No CD etc. but most people just stream everything over Bluetooth anyways these days. Amazon.com: BOSS Audio Systems 616UAB Multimedia Car Stereo - Single Din LCD Bluetooth Audio and Hands-Free Calling, Built-in Microphone, MP3/USB, Aux-in, AM/FM Radio Receiver : Electronics $29!
  6. I was showing this to @jmanz the other day. I bet the cops wouldn't like this. [MEDIA=tiktok]7049518573680758062[/MEDIA] https://www.engadget.com/bm-ws-color-changing-car-concept-works-just-like-an-e-reader-190051033.html

    Jeep vehicles

    What your take on the Jeep brand of vehicles? We are looking at new vehicles and I am looking at a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Elite. I want a Trailhawk model for the off-road capability around here. Do you know someone that owns a Jeep?
  8. So I see Subaru release a new 'off-road' version of their Forester. Basically trying to copy the Jeep Cherokee. They even copied the hood. I don't know, why I think a Forester has a great AWD system, I don't consider it super rugged. Discover the all-new 2022 Subaru Forester® Wilderness™.
  9. So last year Amazon had a flash sale and they had one of those little air compressors that go into your cigarette lighter. It was only around $20, and I thought why not? It came with a small travel case and fit down below by my spare tire in the vehicle. Here a couple of weeks ago we were at a parade and someone that I was parked next to had a low tire. So I pulled it out and it was my first use of it. The cord was nice and long and it had a digital PSI indicator and you just set it to the PSI that you desired and away it went. When it got to the desired PSI it shut off. It actually worked real well and the people were grateful. I always figured if I got a low tire out traveling it would at least allow me to make it back to a city as long as the hole wasn't to bad. Something to think about for your vehicles to carry in the trunk.
  10. I really like it, has a classic 80's vibe like the old one, with modern style. [/url]https://jalopnik.com/lamborghini-countach-lpi-800-4-this-looks-like-it-and-1847473520
  11. With all the vehicles on the road this day and age. Why not have a 3 foot x 3 foot solar panel located on top of the roof somewhere? Cars could be larger than a pickup's. Even the top of semis and trailers could use this. Now this of course can't keep up with the alternator to charge your battery, but it would provide a slow trickle charge to your battery. In cold places this would do wonders. Picture in your head all those parking lot full of cars each day. Miles of vehicles driving in traffic down in California. We potentially waste so many opportunities to use solar panels.

    Car Waxing

    So for some reason I love waxing a vehicle. I don't know why, but I find it relaxing. You wait for the sun to start to go down at that perfect hour in the evening and then you put some tunes on and rub away. I like the feeling it gives my hands when the pain is smooth. Anyways. I cleaned my truck the other day and I thought to myself while it's clean I should wax it. I normally use Meguiars Gold wax which is a carnauba wax. I have always had good luck in the past and still think it's a great product. But I saw on the shelf the other day the classic Turtle Wax and thought "why not". It's cheap and an old school wax.I tried both on a small spot and both seem to be about the same so I went ahead with the Turtle Wax this time. It's actually a great product for as cheap as it is. Which wax do you guys prefer? I wouldn't mind picking up another clay bar system again. If you really want your paint clean you should try one of these. You would be surprised how many impurities are embedded in your paint over time. As a test run your hand over your paint next time and if it's not as smooth as glass or has little bumps in it the impurities are embedded. When you get done waxing you should be able to throw a micro fiber cloth on the hood and it should freely slide down by itself.
  13. My wife got a door ding in our new car a couple of months ago. I got a quote on it and it was going to run about $175- $200 to remove it. It has been driving me crazy so I thought I would try one of these kits off Amazon. I watched a few YouTube videos on using it and I thought, for $40 I will give it a try and if I don't like it I will return it. If it works then I will keep it. I tried it and low and behold it pulled it out amazingly well. I have to get at a right angle to see just a slight blotch. Pretty amazing, they actually work. Link to Amazon Product

  15. SO I have been meaning to post this for awhile, but on my very first oil change I decided to install a Fumoto valve on it. This little valve replaces your oil plug and has a compressed spring, plus a safety clip as well. When you go to change your oil, you remove the safety clip and press in on it and open the valve, when the oil is down draining you just re-close it and replace the safety clip. Easy and no mess. The install went pretty easy and I have been keeping an eye on it but everything seems to be working as described. So far I highly recommend it. http://fumotousa.com/img/valve1.jpg [/url]http://fumotousa.com/
  16. This seems to be all the rage now. Expensive for what you get as well, but people are sweating by it.

    2020 Corvette

    So what is your take? I don't really care for it. They are basically making it look like a Lamborghini. I mean look at the angles and the back window. Basically a copy.

    RC Vehicles

    I think we have talked about this before on here. Seems like we all want to get one. Well I was at a hobby store yesterday, and I saw rock crawlers are pretty hot right now. So I picked up this little beast. Now if it would only quit raining so that I could go play with it. http://www.axialracing.com/assets/products/6103/productpage_blocks/original/product_axi90081t2_scx24_950x500.jpg?1557764703 [/url]http://www.axialracing.com/products/axi90081t2
  20. Coming back from lunch getting ready to pull out and old lady decides she will turn now without a blinker as I proceed to pull out. Then she give me a dirty look like I am in the wrong. Flashback to two days ago. I pull up to intersection, the lady across the street actually has her turn signal on going right, and I have mine going left. We both start to pull out at the same time since we are both going in the opposite directions right? Oh no, she decides at the last second to go my way with her turn signal still blinking the other way. I don't get it, it's one of the first rules you learn when you are driving. People just plain refuse to use them around here, that and seat belts, no one uses them here. Must be a wild west thing. ?‍♂️
  21. Amazing! I would buy it! [/url]https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/family-truckster-replica-sells-for-over-dollar100000-at-barrett-jackson/ar-BBVXk0L#image=BBVXc6A|4
  22. What type of oil do you use in your vehicles? I use Amsoil. Can't beat not having to change your oil for 7500 miles, and getting better gas milage and having your run better. Synthetic >*
  23. Ok so I need a new battery for my truck. I currently have an Interstate in it. I only got 5 years out of it. When is all the warranty is good for. Not all that impressed, and I heard that they are suppose to be good. What brand would you recommend or have had good luck with?
  24. I would like to discuss vehicle GPS units. We have a Garmin (I forget the model number) but i think it's a 5" widescreen model. When I bought it thankfully it came with lifetime maps. We used it over the weekend and I was thinking it was such a great investment, I mean I don't know how people use to travel with paper maps, or even made it though a city. I started looking at updated models last night and there are some new features such as lifetime traffic updates now, bluetooth connectivity, voice control etc. It seems like Garmin is still the leader, but there is also TomTom as well. It seems like people in Europe use TomTom more over there than a Garmin. But trying to find info on GPS is almost impossible, there are really no good fourms or Youtube videos either. It seems like most people just use their phones these days. But I also thought that used your data, and if you were on a long trip wouldn't it use up all your data? Or am I mistaken in this thought? I wanted to see if any other users use a vehicle GPS while traveling also, and if so what brand of GPS do you use?
  25. When I was growing up everyone ha a car bra on their car. I mean it was one of the first things you have to get for your cars. Now I never see them on the road anymore. Probably one reason was all the dirt they would get underneath them and scratch your paint up. I don't know why did more damage the rock chips/bugs or the bra itself. Strange though, I haven't seen one on a vehicle in years. What a strange trend.
