    I agree, go with the OEM. Besides, you can always grab some aftermarket tow mirror attachments to the outside of your mirrors. I've got a set that I simply keep in my travel trailer. When I go...

    Nope... never even considered a rear axle temp gauge. I change the fluid every other year, though, as I do some boat towing, and I'm always paranoid the differential may have been submerged by...

    could also be a very dirty throttle body. Inefficient until you get a good flow going. Easy to clean with TBI. Just hose the throttle intake down with Throttle body cleaner. Use a cloth rag, where...

    I had that happen once with a loose exhaust bracket. If it's a "rattle" type vibration, you might check them. It even went away in 4wd, just as you're describing.

    Far more involved than engine temp in MPG. And I've never seen a 3.5 MPG gain with a thermostat change. I HAVE seen a 20% gain when someone fully inflated their tires though, so I highly recommend...

    the thermostat temperature denotes the temp at which the t-stat changes from closed to open loop, essentially allowing the cooling to enter more or less of the system. The operating temperature...

    I've never had a problem lowering the fuel pump, btw. It's two brackets holding the thing up. Just drop the rear bracket first, then lower it enough to disconnect the lines, then complete the other...

    Yeah, based on what you've done (no pressure at the schrader valve a few minutes after priming) you've basically perfomed a leakdown test.

    You could confirm it with a gauge connected to the valve...

    That's actually something I would be concerned about. The pump is simply pushing oil. Under ideal conditions, you're looking for flow, not pressure. In fact a low pressure high flow condition is...
