    M923 sf97 gvwr

    I have a question for you guys regarding to the gvwr on a 5 ton. I just purchased a truck from a fellow ss member (goodguyzy) and while reviewing the sf97 that was issued for the truck, it states that the gvwr is 22878 lbs. If I'm not mistaken, shouldn't that number be something like 31500...

    Selectable hubs and t case sync

    I bit the bullet last night and ordered a set of front lockouts. I have had nothing but good results from doing this mod on my 2008 Dodge pickup. I gained almost 2 mpg, and it drives much, much better. Now with a pickup transfer case, you generally can't go from high to low, or low to high...

    Not all winch levers are created equal!

    Fuel screw/droop balance?

    My observations with 50wt in tranny

    While my truck was down with an IP problem, I had some time to do some PM work. One being a tranny service. After many hours of reading SS threads on this highly debated subject, I decided to change out the 90wt gear oil, and put 50wt motor oil back in. Note, my test drive last night was...

    That was dumb....

    Well after receiving a fresh set of valve cover gaskets from Eriks, I had no excuse to not check and adjust my valve clearance. While that process went smooth, I did something really dumb! Somehow, while climbing on the front bumper, I accidentally kicked and broke the winch clutch lever:mad...

    Oregon M35A2

    Hello all, I am a new owner (thanks wsucougarx!) of a 1986 A2. I did a lot of searching and I finally found the one I wanted. The previous owner is one heck of a nice guy, and I got to spend a very pleasant morning with him and his family. So the truck and I had to make the 300+ mile trek to...
