So as an AEV where has your expedition vehicle been so far?
:histericaUh... school, walmart and Subway a couple of times :toothless
I feel your pain :cry Its not really what it is now, but what its becoming. I plan on going across the states/wheeling either this summer or next (no matter the price of gas).:histerica
Wow, you're really packing some trips on that thing.:toothless
An "AEV" would have been nice about 5 yrs ago when gas was still around a $1.50 or something. but these days I ain't "expeditioning" anywhere, just too expensive, even as gas has backed off to around $3.60. It's up to the nearest trails and then back home.:cry
Im very surprised they were'nt more. I dont go cheap eather. The ranger and couger both have new rotors, bearing, and ceramic pads. When I get around to doing the bronco I plan on getting slotted rotors from LMC and ceramic pads.Wasnt too bad actually. $150 for the rotor with hub, bearing races, and ABS tooth thing all put together and $50 for the set of pads. I'm not the type of person to go cheap on brakes
Stan on UC4x4.com said:The past couple of nights my battery gauge has been reading really low. Just probably around 10v on the gauge where its usually a steady 13. This morning when I drove to school, it was reading even lower; like border line 8. I looked at the cluster and noticed the RED battery light was on (this was when I was driving 65ish). When I came to a stop at the light on 7th and whatever that 280 exit is, the light went off and the gauge went back up to around 12v. I had no lights on, the AC was off; the only accessory on was the radio.
WTF is going on here?
I went ahead and took out the alternator from my buddies 93 F150 project and put it in mine for a temporary solution. It seems to have solved the problem on the ride home (8 miles) and pulled a consistent 13.7v. Im going to order a 160a 3G (direct swap in late models) along with some Mil-spec terminals and the 2g recharge cable from Ryan's (Fireguy50) website. It should be good maintenance as well as a nice upgrade.that is an alternator problem unfortunalty
