Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

Against my better judgment and solely because one member asked very politely to have it reopened and gave reasonable reasons to do so, this thread is now unlocked again. However, this is the absolute last chance for this thread. Screw it up again with anything that goes contrary to the site rules a...

Re: Fled Into the Taiga in 1936

I've read Harvest of Sorrow, Red Famine (both about the Ukrainian famine genocide) covering the persecution of the Ukrainian (and Russian) people throughout the 1920s and leading up and into the famine of the early 1930s, and also Mao's Great Famine, which covered the most devastating famine (or sin...

What is the best/most durable pair of boots/shoes you have RIGHT NOW...

Thought this might be a fun topic and encourage some of us to either take stock or get out that brush and leather care. I've got a pair of black leather Red Wing 607s that I found at a thrift store for $9 about a year ago. No complaints, they are awesome. Not quite a traditional Goodyear Welt type c...

Re: The Addition after an explosion of sorts

Good deal. I picked up a '90 4runner with the 22re. Did a front end rebuild with a new timing cover, timing chain, guides, sprokets, water pump, oil pump. New belts, new hoses, new plugs, wires dizzy cap and rotor. Runs great and I've been putting it through its paces. I actually picked up a '97 4ru...

Re: 95 Toyota 4Runner opinions

I own both a 2nd and 3rd gen 4runner. The 3rd gen, a '98, has 270k miles on it. The 2nd gen, a '90, has 244k miles on it. The 3rd gen is a 3.4 V6 5-speed 4x4. The 2nd gen is a 2.4 22RE 4cyl 5-speed 4x4. If you can swing it, get a 5-speed. The auto trans on any motored version of the 2nd gen makes it...

Re: The Addition after an explosion of sorts

Looking good. What did you use for paint? I was actually researching DIY paint jobs just today. I love the tan look on the 4runners and is what I would also personally go with if repainting. :clap:

Re: The Addition after an explosion of sorts

I have the 3 liter engine. Just so you know second generation 4runners there are certain parts that are no longer made by toyota or by third parties. This means spending a lot of damn time in junk yards and stripping off spare parts when you come across them. I hit up two different junk yards twice...

Re: Nationwide propane shortage

Feb 7,2014 Contrary to some erroneous reports, the Cochin pipeline is fully operational and capable of transporting propane at full capacity, and there is propane available at five U.S. terminals for pick-up and re-delivery by shipper-customers, who own the propane in the pipeline. The Cochin pipel...

Re: The Addition after an explosion of sorts

V6 3.0 or 22RE? We've got a '98 with 269k on the clock and they just run and run. When looking it was hard to find one under 300k in our price range. That is a good sign. I'm considering a 2nd gen (like yours) for a future replacement when our 2-door car goes away. We need something with 4 doors (ot...

Nationwide propane shortage

I'm starting to hear more about this. Still don't know a lot. Here is an email I just received from one of our state (Colorado) senators - The severe, nationwide propane shortage continues to stifle Coloradans’ access to propane. Earlier this week, I wrote a letter to Governor Hickenlooper urging hi...

Yep, sucks out here right now. Our house is okay, and is elevated off the street several feet. I always hated that our driveway was so steep from the street. I hate it a lot less right now. The problem is that it is totally widespread - Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Longmont, Lyons, Estes Park,...

close to right or not, it seems that the State of California agrees (but then again, it's CA, and they've got their own agenda). I would chalk that up to "government PR flunkie doesn't understand math". I rarely see reasonable numbers come out of those guys. Here's the bigger one though: In a moder...

Just yesterday I took the biometric safe which was just sitting on the floor underneath a nightstand and finally shoved it into a heavy oak dresser (had to cut part of the opening to get it to fit (3/4" solid oak) and bolted it down. Much more safe and secure, hidden from sight, and less accessible ...

the idea of smoke not allowing them to start, unless the smoke is so dense as to already be fatal... There might be something to this, as the story (rumor) of the people that died was that their car wouldn't start so they made a run for it and were quickly overcome by smoke inhalation. So many ques...
