  1. Temporary Radio Silence

    Like many of you, I like interacting with the forum members here a lot but I have a project that’s going to take me away from my usual online shenanigans. I have a second floor balcony that needs a bit of attention. It was looking a little crooked one day and upon closer inspection, I noticed...
  2. Hellcat Humvee - Just Because You Can…

    Doesn’t mean you should. This custom Humvee 6X6 has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat engine and a modified aircraft wing. You can bid on it today at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale. Oh, and for the record, it’s even uglier than the Jeep Gladiator.
  3. Jackery RTT with Retractable Solar Panels - Whaddya Think?

    Jackery has converted the humble rooftop tent into a powerful solar generator that lets any car escape the grid for a weekend or longer. Although it’s just a concept on show at CES right now, Jackery says it will put the tent into production sometime near the end of 2024. The retractable solar...

  5. Canada Drives and Clutch.ca - Not What I Thought They Would Be

    So, my 2014 Passat with 80,000 km (50,000 mi) sits in the garage and doesn’t get driven very often. I considered selling it and went through the motions on Canada Drives and Clutch.ca, Canada’s answers to Carvana. Their online forms ask enough questions for a simple algorithm to come up with a...
  6. Licence Plate Flip/Relocate

    If you’re in a jurisdiction where you‘re required to have a front licence plate and you think it looks a bit odd sitting up so high, it’s easy enough to lower it by simply flipping the bracket upside down. There are also some good aftermarket options out there that achieve the same thing. The...
  7. Changes On The Fly - Tires & Oil

    I’ve often seen Tire Service trucks that look after the needs of big rigs on the highway but while I was out dropping off my Passat at Speedy Auto Glass (Safelite) for some small stone chip repairs, I saw this truck working on a Toyota Camry’s tires in the grocery store parking lot next door…...

  9. Do You Decorate Your Ranger for Hallowe’en?

    I don’t but I saw this picture in another thread earlier today and it got me wondering, do people decorate their trucks for Hallowe’en? If you do, share your pics here.
  10. Wasp Nest in the Ground?

    So, I saw that something dug a hole in my lawn at the cottage and wondered what annoying critter would have dug a burrow there and how I might get rid of it. It wasn’t there yesterday. I could see honeycomb material all around the hole and a few wasps hanging around. I was puzzled - did...
  11. Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadian Members!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadian members and online guests. It’s as if we love turkey and pumpkin pie so much, we couldn’t wait until November. 😀 I hope everyone is able to enjoy this long weekend and has a chance to share some of it with family. Mrs. DukeCanBuildit and I will have a proper...
  12. Cleaning Your Roush Air Filter

    The Roush CAI filter for the 5g Ranger is oil-free and easy to clean and you likely have everything on-hand. I like to clean mine every oil-change or if I notice the air box has a lot of debris. This isn’t like a paper filter where you just hold it up to a trouble light to see if it’s okay and...
  13. Tailgate Seal Installation - Drop-in Bedliner

    Important Note: DROP-IN BEDLINER INSTALL WITH TAILGATE COVER I don’t have issues with water getting in the back of my Ranger or much dust (I get it dirtier inside), but the light coming through the side gaps of my tailgate irritated me so I ordered a tailgate seal kit...

  15. Happy Canada Day 2023 🇨🇦

    Happy Canada Day to all the Canadian forum members and site visitors. For everyone else, it’s the day we celebrate our Independence from Britain and colonial rule (July 1, 1867). Unlike the U.S., which gained its independence through revolution, we gained ours when Sir John A. Macdonald won a...

  17. Something Interesting Across the Laneway

    There has been a car under a car cover in the home across the laneway all winter. The view to the yard is blocked from ground level but it can be seen from my second and third floors. Today, I saw this…. ….and I’m wondering if I should be making friends. ? I’m not sure what it is and this...
  18. TPMS Sensor Fault - Reprogramming or Replacement?

    Went for a quick run to pick up groceries and was greeted with this… :( I assumed a faulty TPMS sensor but checked the tire pressure to make sure it wasn’t simply low. It was fine and there is no numerical value for one of the tires when I check the Tire Pressure screen; just “- - -“. So...
