Reminds me of the time I was with a friend somewhere off-road late at night, kind of in a hurry to meet up with some others. He was driving his Bronco and managed to get the right front wheel stuck...

Makes sense on one level, but from a pilot-in-command perspective the driver needs to take full responsibility for the operation of his vehicle. My dog probably didn't think of telling me she was...

Re: Smoking brake (just one)

A stuck caliper is my first thought.

But on a front wheel, it seems like you might notice it pulling.

Maybe some organic matter, e.g. leaves, a rag, or some kind of , got caught in the brakes...

Re: Best Roadside Assist

Thanks for the perspective.

Was the heater hose issue due to a loose clamp? I.e. would it be preventable in the future by occasionally tightening hose clamps?

Re: Best Roadside Assist

This may be a ridiculous question, but: towed 3+ times in 3 years? That seems like a very lot. May I ask why you've needed so many?

Re: SCT Performance Tuner w/ 5-Star Tunes 7.3 Ford Diesel Tu

Re: 2008 GMC SMB w/Quigley 4x4- converted in 2010/11-$55,000

Really like the layout of this rig.

I strongly prefer the center aisle after previously having had both.

In any case, this rig...

@c7train:

There are ducted vents in the panel under the bench seat. You can see the edge of one in the lower left of IMG_0806 and you can see the top of another in the bottom center in IMG_0808.

Thanks for asking, Dave.

It's definitely an SMB conversion with the Atlas transfer case.

I'll note it above in case anybody else has the same question.
