    This is true.. ! We just had a guy accidentally touch an aluminium air pipe on an engine.... pipe looked just like everything else on the engine. Problem was, it was on the outlet side of the turbo before the CAC.... pipe was about 350-360 degrees!. Hes sporting a nice burn right now!

    Re: tire pressure monitoring systems

    Thanks for the heads up. I knew these existed, but this thread convinced me to spend the dough for the added safety value on a long trip we'll be undertaking this summer. I looked at the variety of brands/models available, ended up going with the TST 507 with flow through sensors. Now i should upgrade my stems and be good to go.

    I keep one of these trailer aids in my truck. Works great with my horse and flatbed dual axle trailers. Lot simpler than another jack.

    Just be careful using a ramp. I have seen it bend a spindle on the good axle due to overloading. It was so bent we could not get the rear bearing off. Had to cut it off then load the trailer on my GN and take it to a fab shop to have the spindle cut off the axle tube and a new one welded in.
