I have an engine question for you guys. A Chevy 350 or a 454? My project is a 1985 K5 blazer that has a 350 in it but it burns oil. Should I replace it with a 350 rebuild or a very mildly performance built 454? I have access to both for very cheap. The plans with the rig are an everyday driver and weekend trail rig. Behind the engine is a SM465 transmission, not sure if that will sway your information one way or the other. Thanks guys and keep up the good work!

Hi guys,

Found your show a couple weeks ago and really enjoy listening to the topics yall discuss.  I would like to hear yall discuss suspension styles/setups between a traditional trail-bound 4x4/jeep/rock crawler/etc VS the “Trucks Gone Wild” homebuilt monster trucks style that seems to be growing in popularity.

I would also like to hear yall discuss the fancy custom suspensions popping up on ATV’s and side-x-sides over the last couple of years, but that may be a little too far off topic for your show.

Keep up the podcast, really enjoy listening.

Thanks,

Scott

Hey Guys,

I'm really enjoying the show! I've laughed to myself about half a dozen times during the week thinking about Greg having to get out of the truck to show the officer his license. Haha!

I'm not sure if you guys have actually purchased auto parts off of amazon. I have, a ton, and you can find some KILLER bargains. I've been inside my suburban engine for the last week and I keep finding things to replace. I just realized my distributors screw hole was split out and I need that on top of the cap and rotor. The cap, rotor alone were about $75 from Advance auto locally. The cheapest distributor they have is about $175. I just ordered the same distributor with cap and rotor off of Amazon for $75 total! I've seen this case many times. Another Pro tip is to look in the used section. You can find open box specials from "Amazon Warehouse" deals. Sometimes these are customer returns, sometimes warehouse damage ect. I've probably purchased about 2-3 dozen warehouse deals and only once had an issue. Same great return policy as new stuff, btw. I recently got 2 performance drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads for $100 total via Amazon Warehouse deals... Probably worth mentioning in the amazon spot on the show...

Thanks for all you do, keep up the great work!

Thank You,

Jake Challand

Hey guys I was wanting your opinions, I have 1979 Ford Bronco and need to put a new motor in. It has a Ford 400m and its old and wore out. Was wondering what you guys would put in it? It currently has a 6in lift, 35in tires, 4:10 gears and posi-tracs front and back with a Dana 44 front end and a Ford 9in. in the back. I have purchased Detroit lockers for front and back I would like to go to a 37 or 38in tires. I also will be getting a atlas transfer case for it at some point.

Thanks guys love the show keep it up.

I have been thinking about buying a early 80's CJ7.  Not sure if this is a prudent purchase. I have always liked the look of them but not sure about the reality of owning one.  Should I save my money and buy a more recent Jeep model?  4 door vs 2 door of the recent Wranglers?  Pluses? Minuses?  Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks - Tony
