Ebay, a couple of years ago. I was at Super Duty Headquarters the other day and saw one for sale there also. I was a surprised to see how good of a deal I got on mine when I saw the price tag.

I don't see any need to carry the knuckle seal in a field repair kit. This is one of those repairs that should be done before going out. The field repair kit should include but not limited to points (and all the items needed to convert back to points if you run petronix), distributor cap, rotor, coi...

Interco just plain indestructable, I should know. I switched to Mickey Thompson MTZ's as the intercos got hard to find around here when I needed new tires. Now both my 710 265/75 and my 712 285/75 on widened rims have the Mickey's. I have ruined a couple of Mickeys but that was in some pretty nasty ...

If you have an old 12v coil laying around it would be good to install it for a moment to see if the truck starts. I had an issue with my 712 where it had what looked like great spark and lots of fuel but would not run. Turned out that after getting rid of the flamethrower coil all is better now. BTW...

Any jack repair shop can fix it. They are not as uncommon as people think. I took mine to a local repair shop and just set it on the counter and asked to have it rebuilt. They said three days and sure enough it was done and repainted the original blue. The complete rebuild was around $65.

I can see the ambulance trucks being electric pigs. Sooo many options and a great platform to work with and perfect for solar panel installation.

my yellows have been in my 712 for close to 4 years, no battery related issues to date. My 710 has red tops in (the way it was when I got it and they are 5 years old) with no battery related problems either. Would appear battery size it more related to auxiliary use than requirements of the pinz eng...

I run the Rancho 9000's and broke a fair share of shock bolts. Since I have done the through bolt modification I have not broken a single bolt. I have currently a 9000 leaking, front shock, and need to get a replacement for it on my 712.

We huddled the pinz to break the brisk wind that was blowing the snow/rain in. I thought it looked kind of neat with them all close together looking like a bunch of cows on a cold day. We had lunch in the back of my 712 as it was warm and dry inside. Looking forward to some pics of the CB run, I alw...

Morris, best advice a good pair of insulated boots, the foot wells don't get much heat. We had an impromptu snow run Sunday. The 710's do really well in the slushy snow when chained up. Here is a link to some of the photos from our trip. http://www.swpinzgauer.org/message_board/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2...
