    Power steering pump pulley recommendations

    Looking to replace the stock 5in power steering pulley for a 4.5in pulley. Anyone have any comments on how much of an improvement I'll see, and was it worth the roughly $35/40 increase in cost over a stock plastic special? Also anyone know of any other more "cost effective" brands other than PSC...

    Sirius Stratus 6. Was in my Tahoe when I bought it. It worked on the free channels when I pulled it a few months ago. Includes the FM hardwired adapter, and GM antenna adapters. Was in a 2004 Tahoe, and I would think it would be compatible with any of the GMT-800 platform GMs $30 Siruis...

    Open seats for trail runs.

    If I don't bring my Jeep (and I probably won't) I'll be fishing for an open seat. I've always run the easy stuff, and I'd like to see some of the rest of the park. That being said anyone got an open seat I can bum? 1 scoobyxj Needs a ride...

    School me on Ford Triton engines.....

    Girlfriend has an 01 F150 with the 4.6ltr Trition in it, and just over 153k. Just did plugs (found out after the fact I should have used Motorcraft instead of Autolites). I need to do the EGR cleaning thing where you pull the intake and clean all the EGR passages, and figure out how to reseal...

    Eastwood air tools and maybe a welder.

    Thinking of picking up this Eastwood cutting set, and maybe this welder. Anyone use any of their brand name equipment that can comment on the quality of it? Not using it professionally, but just for Jeep projects and such. Seems like a decent price on them.

    5x4.5in or 5x114.3mm Wheel guide.

    Scoured the web and found a list of vehicles that use the 5x4.5in or 5x114.3mm bolt pattern. I haven't test fitted any of these wheels. Nor do I know the OEM backspacing, rim size, or width. You're on your own for that. 5 x 4.5 (same as 5 x 114.3) Ford 1994-2004 Mustang 1994-2004 Mustang GT...

    2008+ Nissan Pathfinder as a tow rig.

    Anybody tow their junk with one? The newer ones are rated to tow 7k with the 5.7ltr. Obviously I'd want trailer brakes but I figure a fully loaded XJ @ 4000lbs a car trailer @ 1500lbs it should handle it respectively. I was looking at Tahoes, and Yukons, but these seem nicer, have more power...
