Re: G80 vs Truetrac

I loved how my G80 performed in the snow. Very confident. My six passengers agreed. But then I was driving normally, not stomping on the gas and quickly cranking the wheel. :)

Re: Shock Absorber choices?

I was happy with the Rancho's I had. I didn't find them too stiff. KYB, Monroe and Gabriel are all good quality, reputable manufacturers. Since you get on logging roads frequently, you might benefit from a more "performance" model, which will likely have a monotube design. (gas-a-just for KYB). Bore...

Re: AWD Rack and Pinion install

My new van has R&P steering and I hate it. It tries to break my fingers off when I'm driving over logging roads. I miss the Astro steering, even if it did eat idler arms.
