Interesting thread, but I gotta say..
Reading a post from the Highlander is a treat.
Spot on, AFAIK, as usual.
His perspective is always welcome.
Thanks for posting, Lostone. A good post. I have few life long friends, and I'm at an age where we don't see each other very often. A few are...

Thanks! I know how Chevy did it in 58:D. I've seen, but not in decent pics, of the vent moved up on the roof up to a few inches, and the scoop to...
I've seen and liked these for years, but now that I'm about to cut a hole in my roof to install one, I can't find any decent pics in my pic...
Very cool. Ridiculous, but cool.
Thanks for the part numbers. Could be a big problem solver.
What's the NAPA number for that short filter? Thanks.
Hang tough, Hotdamn, do not cut it up. Don't shorten it, don't fuck up the rear end, don't destroy what you have to make all the lines line up....

Thanks to Mr. Raskin and others for details I hadn't read before. What a story.
Thanks for the replies. Any thoughts on going down to a 6.40-15 to get a bit more clearance?
I know there are many answers, but I'm trying to figure out how much clearance I'll have with different wheel/tire combinations with dropped...
Never a problem with mine. Drove it over a lot of stuff exploring old junkyards, and looking for old tin on non existent roads.
Welcome! You're off to a good start! Good luck!
He asks a couple of sensible questions, and mentions that his wife doesn't know about it yet. Then the holier than thou hammer comes down. Stay...
If you haven't told her yet,
I had a friend who kept all his cool stuff at a buddy's house. After I teased him about that,...

No chance of surviving intact that way. Packages are treated worse now that years ago, because of the increase in volume in mail order and...
