    SHO Wheels on a '16 TC

    I like these wheels and have looked at them before. Nice clean lines with a relatively classic look. But, I DO want them wider and they just don't make them that way.
  2. I get that. Just used the VIN number and the quote drops to $399. Apparently there is an electric defroster option I thought I have but do NOT.
  3. Just got a quote to replace TC windshield at Safelite for $709 due to a rock strike. Is this normal? Sounds high to me.

    No sludge or "milkshake". I'll pass on tasting it.😋

    I always shoot for 4K between changes. Maybe its a little under or a little over that but I don't stress about going a little over. I also don't depend on the indicator to tell me when it needs changing. Could have used the reset post a little earlier yesterday since I changed the oil and had to look up in the manual how to reset it. The warning just happened to coincide with the scheduled change. Have an old pickup that I only change once a year (need it or not) since I rarely put 2K on it per year.
  6. You guys made me curious too and I checked and I do have these. Don't remember ever using it but if I ever did it was by accident since truth is I don't know how to make it work. My "senior moments" seem to be a little longer in duration.

    Front Bumper Guard

    Anything that helps break up all that black in front is good, but that price is insane.

    Fifty150's Truck

    Second that.

    replacing rims with 17 inch 235 50 profile.

    235/50/17 is virtually the same dimensions as 235/55/16. I did some fairly extensive research because I wanted to use the 235/55/16 on the front and pair it with 15 inch rims on the back but could never find a matching set with mixed 15s and 16s. On my 2016, the conclusion I came to is that it would be close but should fit just fine. However, with aggressive terrain and a lot of flexing it might be a different story. IMHO.


    That's a good price. Where did you get it from? Last oil change I could not get an appointment at the shop so I did it myself. I had said the first time I changed the oil myself I would toss the under-shield but it was SO easy I put it back on.
  11. I find that the glove compartment works excellent. Even better sometimes I forget that its in there once I get to where I'm going.

    Tire size settings in Forscan

    I run three different size setups on the front (rear doesn't count), none of them stock. 245/50/16, 225/55/16 & 225/60/16 for 1.2%, 1.6% & 5.1% respectively. The only one that concerns me much is 5.1% cause if I push the envelope too far I'm in "ticket range". The error gets progressively less as speed reduces so mostly its only at highway speeds that it matters much. That said, since retiring recently I find that there is never a need to get in any hurry to get anywhere.

    Blower Fan Access

    A very LITTLE cat... Mouse trivia: Where ever the little bugger can get his little head thru,,,,he can get the rest of his body. They can get into some incredibly SMALL openings.

    Blower Fan Access

    I now have this problem too but I can see obvious signs of little rat bastard mice under the hood. Probably going to have to put it in the shop to get the mouse habitat out. Somehow. I hate those guys.😠

    adaptive cruise control?

    Me being the cranky old mistrusting guy that I am, I could never trust such a feature but I can appreciate the idea in general. Making several trips form VA to NC and back over the last couple of weeks, I notice that when ramping down the speed manually on the cruise control that the van will downshift to slow down to the new set speed if the adjustment is quick. Don't really like this since I'm used to the vehicle coasting under this condition or even picking up speed if going downhill. Maybe I'm just a control freak.
