  1. Happens about 1 a week at the industrial court I work at. I'll have to take a picture of the intersection, it's always amazed me that even box trucks try to make it in the back way. Its a three way stop, and those stop signs get knocked down every week from either trucks hitting them, or people swerving off the hills to avoid hitting something.
  2. Another long shot might be a plugged catalytic converter if it has one? My dads Ram did some weird things (bucking/stalling) under load (ie hauling/pulling trailer) when his plugged up, but idled fine.
  3. Not overly sure why I do,*pre-post edit, I read about it a long time ago on naxja - https://www.naxja.org/forum/archive/index.php/t-1121647.html so apparently it wasn't just gen 1's that had it.
  4. gen 1 dakotas with the v6 used an ax 15, at least in 1994 on the 4wd models, not sure about other years.
  5. You mentioned that your truck is 2wd, and did not mention wanting to convert to 4wd. Assuming that is true, I believe that the dodge dakotas with the 2.5l and ax 15 were all 2wd only, meaning you can just snag the whole tranny, bellhousing included, and be good to go on that front. (I thought they also came with an 8.25, but the I4 dakotas came with the 7.25 axle).
  6. the 150lb driver weight seems so optimistic
  7. If you get it, and the rear frame is solid, you could also chop it in half and turn it into a trailer. At least keep some of it on the road .
  8. When I got my first jeep (98 TJ softop) ten odd years ago, it was also my first manual. Had never driven one (excluding the farm tractor, but it wasn't synchronized, so no shift on the fly, had to stop to go into different gears) . My dad was with me, and he did the test drive to make sure everything was good, and I assumed he'd show me the ropes once we got it back to the farm. While I was finishing up the paperwork inside, he left. Leaving me quite a ways from home, alone, with the only vehicle to make it back with being one I had no clue how to drive, in an extremely hilly area with multiple stops midway up hills. And, being ten years ago smartphones weren't yet an everyday item, I didn't have one to youtube how the hell to drive this thing. It was actually quite a terrifying drive, but if I remember right I only killed it like 3 times. By the time I got back to my home town, I didn't even bother going home, and just went straight to my friends house, dropped the top and spent the rest of the day getting it stuck/killing it out at the park at the Mississippi. I would give a lot to go back and relive that day, and I don't think I would change a damn thing about it.
  9. Probably the same stuff FCA smoked when deciding to place the new Gladiator in the luxury lifestyle market. And depending on how much the new truck costs, I think I'd rather have this, I could rip those seats out and actually have a bed that can haul things.
  10. Came into work at 6 am, power shut off at 6:05, power came back on at 9:30. Nothing better than it being 0 degrees outside, 35 degrees inside, with the only lights being off the forklift. But hey, 3 hours of pay just sitting in the dark being cold? I'll take it.
  11. Down in Jefferson County, Missouri USA, a little over 1000 miles (1600 km) south of you, it's -11C , with a projected low of -20C. If you all don't start keeping the cold on your side of the border, we're gonna have to build a wall up there . Also, stay warm, this cold sucks.
  12. Do the seats come with the brackets? if so I'm in for them. Scratch that, the idea of the purchase did not pass the better half , apparently I need to get rid of some of my other vehicles before stockpiling more parts for the Comanche.
  13. 7 FT bed and a topper option that extends all the way back like a camper shell so I can sleep in it and still access the cab without going outside (until I'm too old to pull those gymnastics off).
  14. based on the awful noise, I'd assume hardware failure, though trying the above should still be done just in case. Older Macbook Pros did have the manual pin hole, but not the ones made in the last few years.
  15. I was kinda hoping that it would at least have a midgate (with easily removable/foldable rear seats) to extend the size/utility of the bed, like the bollinger b2 (link for those who haven't seen it) is supposed to have.
