    Pre-Runner Trucks—There Should Be a Rule

    I see trucks advertised on all the time on Craigslist and RDC described as Pre-Runners. Many just have a cold air intake, bolt-on bumper & skid plate, fiberglass fenders, a bolt-on front suspension kit, Deavers and Kings. To me that’s not a pre-runner. There should be a rule you can only call...

    1310 U-Joints

    Just put a 302/C4 in my short bed/single cab ranger. The 302 is a mild build and I'm estimating 275 ft/lbs of torque. The 9" rear end has a flange for a 1310 U-joint. For a frequent pre-running/play truck, will 1310 u-joints hold up?

    Bump Stop Fully Compressed--Any Ideas?

    Sorry for the blurry picture but as you can see, the fox 2.0 bumpstop is fully compressed and won't budge. I have relieved all the pressure. Any ideas for getting this unstuck? Is it salvagable?

    How TV Should Cover Off-Road Racing

    I just watched NBC's coverage of the Baja 1000 and I think it sucked. Too many personal interest stories/sponsor plugs and not enough action. Here's how I think our sport should really be covered: Every Class 1 and Trophy Truck gets 2 in-car cameras, one out the front and the other out the...

    BC Class and Wide Open

    So I watched Chasing Baja for the 105th time last night and started wondering more about the BC class. Does anyone own their own BC car or can you only rent them from Wide Open? Anyone have an idea what it costs to rent one for the 1000? It looks like Wide Open provides excellent support for...

    Carb Tilts Backwards

    Trying to put in a new motor but with the current mounts, it leaves the holley carb tilted back about 10 degrees. It's a two barrel 350 cfm. How much of a problem is that going to cause, especially in the whoops or up hills?

    Best Size Tire for my Class 1450 Ranger

    I race class 1450 in MORE. I have a 2.3 liter Ranger with 6.00 gears and 35x12.50x15 BFG Mud Terrains. On most of the grades, the tires are just too big for the motor. All I can do is wind out second or third gear depending on how steep it is. On long grades it's really frustrating. I want...

    9" Pinion Carrier Flange Leaking

    I've got a 9" ford rear end and the pinion carrier is leaking--Not the main flange seal but the 5 bolt flange where the shims are. What's the best way to fix it and can it be done without removing the third member from the truck?

Does anyone know of any truck salvage yards in the inland empire where I can get a used but running 4.0 engine, transmission and computer?
