  1. Keep us updated on what you find out.
  2. Thanks for the information all, I live on the east side of South Dakota, and we can have great weather on one side of the state, and all h@ll breaking loose on the other side of the state. So chains it is. and now the next question... how much clearance would you need for snow chains? Also hadn't heard about drag chains, a new nugget of knowledge to remember. We'll be running either i29 north and south or I90 east and west until we retire full time. So we are definitely running on the northern tier of states until later on. Thanks all!
  3. So while everyone is ducking inside to hide from the heat advisories, thought I would quick post this, since I ducked inside for a bit as well. For those that venture into snow areas, what do you use for traction in snow? I am going with fairly aggressive tread pattern, but I know that doesn't solve everything. I've seen chains, ratchet cleats. Whats being used? Any horror stories of items to stay away from? Thanks everyone, finally have my 2007 Volvo!

    Applying Decals

    Definitely water and a bit of soap to help squish things around, makes it much more mobile. Cool temperatures really help as well, and as mentioned before always in the shade. Good luck on the project!
  5. A quick question - how much does a complete windshield replacement cost?
  6. Posting this since it is a manual, and I need an automatic. I do not know seller or the truck. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2281009518877815/?ref=messenger_banner Seller's Description Very nice truck 800,000 miles deleted Cummins 13 spd fridge TV inverter tri pac apu like new tires and brakes truck needs nothing ready to go to work. Only reason for selling is I bought a pre elog. Seller's name is Greg Larson.
  7. Thanks for the info! Its going to take some time to hunt something down, and I am seeing a lot of people upgrading, I don't mind doing a bit of work on an older vehicle especially if it is electrical. Just need to find something mechanically sound and I can build up from there. Would love a 780, but need something for work for a couple years, then the 780 becomes a possibility.
  8. Has anyone run into issues getting sensors and parts for the earlier Volvo auto trannys? Starting to look, don't mind starting out with something older since we have a fairly active market for race car haulers.
  9. Sorry to hear about the problems. We had a house that we rented out for a while, renters had started trashing it, got them out. I couldn't believe in just a couple weeks what they had done. I will never have rentals again as well. Good luck on the repairs and hopefully they won't be as bad as expected.
  10. We are starting to earnestly look at larger campers now, in particular the Montana High Country 384, anyone have any experience with it? Also since it is a longer camper, we went from 21' to 28' ( that seemed giant in comparison), but for living space and after a weekend of rain camping one weekend we decided on definitely needing more space, and walking space for the pups. I know we're out for alot of State and National parks with something this size, but willing to compromise and camp nearby. Thanks everyone!
  11. Absolutely agree with you richfaa . It's defintely a boom/bust operation along with the economy. There are so many brands and models and everyone's tastes change so quickly that they are fighting that aspect as well, again high demand for some, while others languish on the lots.
  12. I'd love to see him in South Dakota with our high winds. Our F150 and a 28' camper with sway bars kept me busy. Chuck
