If you're measuring MPG based on your odometer, then it's wrong. The odometer is affected by the speedometer gear the same way the speedo is. You're actually getting more like 13.5 MPG.

Saving an hour every few years when you do a brake job isn't a huge benefit. Other than that, there is no real advantage of rear disc brakes - they stop the same.

Didn't say anything about it being preferable, just curious which direction would be easier, putting leafs on a frame or springs on an axle.

I'll take your word for it, but is there a set of strength numbers for axles out there somewhere? The actual strength percent increase would factor into my cost/benefit analysis if I was in the...

Nah, the hornet's nest has already been stirred a bunch of times. This time is rather tame. I predict this will die a quiet death.

If you already need to swap your injectors (broken, clogged, whatever), then it can't hurt to try them if there isn't much cost difference. Just keep in mind that any performance improvement is...

Just repeating what has been said in the "Great 8.8 Debate."

Do you have numbers to support your statements? "Beefier" is a nebulous term. Just because something is thicker, bigger, or heavier...

Lots of folks have. Marginally stronger than a D35 (but significantly weaker than a D44). Requires some fabrication and a few compromises. Lots of folks will tell you don't bother. Why do you want to...

Don't forget vacuum lines. Make sure you don't have a wide-open fitting on your manifold.

I did that, but it still eventually gave up and collapsed. However, $30 for about 6 years of use is pretty good, especially since the solution in the video hadn't been discovered yet when I did it.

Mine lasted at least that long, until the bend you have to make in the hose finally collapsed in on itself. If you do the GM hose fix, don't throw away the stock hose.

Yep, happened to mine also. One fix, which I did initially, is replacing the filler hose with a GM one that has a flapper valve in it. This lasted me many years, but eventually the hose buckled and...

An odd number of unevenly spaced blades is used to cut down on noise. If Jeep spaced the blades out evenly, the fan would be a little louder. If they went with six evenly spaced blades, it would be a...
