Joe you've got my number. I assure you we can come to a deal on some of the parts you need. And the key word here is "DEAL".

I don't know what I want to do right now. Not sure if I want to swap frames, buy another Merc or just sell everything and buy something else. Just not motivated right now.

So instead I went out and bought myself a nice 2017 Expedition EL as my new daily driver.

So now I have double boost in the Expe

My blue has been sitting for over a year. IDC. I'll fix it when I feel like it too Joe. At least you are still boosted. I went from a supercharged blue to an NA DTR! 😆😆😆

if only you had a blue, the three could take turns polishing each other.

Thumbs up Tire Repair

Had rear tire slow leak re-repaired (properly this time) at Walmart. Had it ‘repaired’ previously with a plug - continued to leak. Walmart dismounted the tire from the rim, drilled out the plug, patched it from the inside, balanced and remounted it for $10 - all is good.

Marauder tires currently have 14k miles and were installed over 12 years ago by the previous owner. Look good but contemplating new tires due to age. My ’05 Mustang received its first new tires ever last month at 29k miles and my ’06 Ranger will receive its first new tires ever this week at just under 41k miles.

There is no way that 12 year old tires are safe IMO, purchase a new set ASAP Invective.

Did they insert a new plug and cut off the internal protrusion before patching?


If not, watch for premature belt failure/ply separation.

Knowing that Walmart is ‘litigation adverse’ I will trust they did the repair correctly. They originally didn’t want to fool with it but were impressed with the car over all. The tech who repaired my tire was impressed with the car. He bought an older Audi A8 in ‘like new condition’ at a fire sale price. He believes he’s a fair mechanic but parts prices floored him.

Regarding ‘old tires’: my experience has been once the tires get ‘too old’ (even with good tread) they will get noisy and vibrate. Mustang’s tires reached that point not long before replacing them and Ranger’s tires have just reached that point recently. Marauder’s tires seem to be good at the moment but I’m cognizant of the situation. I’m religious about inflation pressure, rotation and wear pattern.

From my experience, I never noticed any noise and/or vibration on the second set of BFG tires my dad put on her; but upon close inspection, I noticed some dry rot & then checking the manufactures info (Critical IMO!), I decided to play it safe, I hope you do as well Invective.
