Stay with us to find out events in your area, off road news, and topics to interest every guy & girl who craves the outdoors as seen through the windshield. I am here with my co-hosts Steve & Aaron. How’s everyone doing tonight?

Tech tip:

Flush your A/C system when you replace your compressor. Most if not all parts house sell flush just for the A/C lines.  If your compressor goes bad, it’s really important to flush all the tidbits and metal parts out of the system before you put your new compressor on.  Also, make sure to fill the new compressor with the right oil. If you can, hold the system under vacuum for a few minutes to insure no leaks and it boils the moisture out of the system.
