    1997 WIA shock absorber number

    I use my phone to take pictures of numbers in tight places if to small for my eyes and expand them so I can read them.

    Maiden voyage!

    Traveled from Seattle to Laughlin NV both ways last 3 years, we use 5 we like 3 RV parks on the on 5, Seven Feathers, Canyonville OR, Rolling Hills Casino, Corning CA, and The Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield CA. I 5 is easy, you will get some mountain driving, Ashland to Redding, give you some idea of what your truck can do, take ca46 from 5 to 99 north of Bakersfield, then 58 east out of Bakersfield, Orange Grove RV Park is on 58 . 58 to Kramer Junction 395 South to, I-15 South to I-10 in Riverside. My problem with 395 is only 2 lanes mostly and only one RV Park to handle our 72 feet, 8 miles west of Lakeview OR on 140, Junipers RV Park. Safe trip.

    Head light restoration

    I have David Dixon’s retrofit in my old lights and they are IMO the best way to go and they were for the last 3 years, but my lense houseings got so bad that I had to go this route, when the new lights start to give me problems I will retrofit the new houseings with David’s lights.

    Head light restoration

    Last month I replaced my head lights, I had used restoration kits with limited results but finally decided to go new, a week after replacing them I had to take my wife to emergency eye surgery in the middle of the night 90 miles from Reedsport to Eugene OR, best $262.00 I ever spent.

    Volvo engines

    2011 D13, 700K miles, 435hp 1650ftlbs, I have put 40K miles in the three years I have had it and only replaced a starter, has been very dependable. Volvo’s marine version of the D13 puts out 900hp, and their race truck the Iron Knight puts out 2400ph, same D13, says something I guess.
