    custom accessories for f450

    Have you looked at Amazon?
  2. I have and they are fine to use. I usually stick with Moog but Mevotech is considered a strong second line.
  3. Stock jumped pretty good after this.
  4. What year is it? I would try to find a Mitsubishi parts website with diagrams to identify the part.

    NEED NAMES OF THESE PARTS

    On the intake is for brakes if needed and then I think you have a temp sending unit on the right and then on the right side is coolant passage. Who makes this manifold? Often you can find instructions like https://www.jegs.com/InstallationInstructions/300/350/350-75164.pdf
  6. You might want to check carid.com, I just ordered from them and they were cheaper than rockauto on walker exhaust.
  7. Any updated codes? Was going to buy an exhaust system but $50 shipping is a tough one.
  8. I had my credit card stolen and charges appeared from Alibaba a few years back! Luckily the credit card company cancelled them and called me...
  9. Is this the same as what's sold on Amazon? Has good reviews which is good.

  12. So it seems that Amazon has switched most of their prime member orders to the USPS, probably to save costs. The issue is that the US Post Office does not make deliveries if you are on a private road, unless you have a mailman going outside the policy. I even spoke to the post master of the local office and he's getting complaints from residents who are not getting their packages and have to go pick up at the post office! The mailman is even dropping off a slip that says "Sorry we missed you" or "Delivery attempted" when in fact the package never leaves the post office and they just use that form. It's a joke and my taxes at work, can;t get any more packages from USPS and that includes the majority of them from Amazon. With Amazon's main carrot being delivery and Prime within two days, that's going away for me and for others on private roads unless they switch back to UPS. There is no point if I have to go to the post office to pick it up, no convenience there. Amazon should have negotiated better with the USPS.
  13. Icahn Enterprises Acquires American Driveline Systems, Franchisor Of AAMCO And Cottman Service Centers Icahn Enterprises L.P. (IEP) announced that it has acquired American Driveline Systems (ADS) from Transom Capital Group through a wholly-owned subsidiary. ADS is the franchisor of AAMCO and Cottman Transmission & Total Auto Care service centers, with approximately 680 locations in the U.S. and Canada. With the addition of ADS, Icahn Automotive now operates approximately 1,900 owned and franchised service locations in 49 states plus Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and several other international locations. “The acquisition of American Driveline Systems is the next step in building out our national automotive service network,” said Carl Icahn, chairman of IEP. “I believe that the automotive aftermarket service industry is undergoing secular change driven by increased vehicle complexity, advances in technology, as well as the growth of automotive fleets, including ride-sharing and car-sharing networks. These changes will continue to offer, in my opinion, extremely attractive and unique investment opportunities. With our presence throughout the automotive aftermarket value chain, Icahn Enterprises is positioned to capitalize on these trends.” “Icahn Automotive Group continues to pursue an aggressive strategy of strengthening our full-service automotive repair capabilities, with the ability to leverage a broad national footprint and what we believe will be the most efficient operating model in the industry,” said Daniel Ninivaggi, CEO of Icahn Automotive Group LLC. “We are excited to work with the ADS management team as well as the AAMCO and Cottman franchisees to capitalize on the many growth opportunities we see ahead.” http://www.aftermarketnews.com/icahn-enterprises-acquires-american-driveline-systems-franchisor-aamco-cottman-service-centers/
  14. NY POST: http://nypost.com/2017/10/03/icahn-pushes-2b-into-auto-parts-business/ When it comes to exerting power in the auto parts business, Carl Icahn is certainly in the driver’s seat. The investor, after this week buying the 680-location Aamco auto service center chain, has spent more than $2 billion in equity cobbling together a vertically integrated powerhouse with an eye on possibly taking it public, The Post has learned. Icahn Automotive Group’s holdings now include parts retailer Pep Boys, parts distributor Auto Plus and the service center chains Just Brakes and Precision Tune Auto Care. The investor also owns Federal-Mogul, an OEM and after-market parts supplier. “The risk is small relative to the reward,” Icahn said, believing that creating the first true auto parts vertical will make the companies he is buying much more valuable. Ultimately, an option is to debut IAG in an initial public offering, the investor said. IAG paid about $125 million for Aamco — bringing to 1,900 the number of service centers it owns, a source estimates. Also on the IAG drawing board are adding collision centers to Pep Boys locations. Separately, Icahn owns 35 percent of Hertz Global Holdings and about 3 percent of ride-hailing company Lyft. IAG services fleets including Hertz cars leased by Lyft drivers. Meanwhile, the practice of monitoring bathroom brakes at IAG’s Auto Plus is no longer being done, Icahn said. The investor said he was not aware of the practice, which his CEO Dan Ninivaggi said was not actually being enforced in the few locations where there were bathroom scanners, before the story ran in The Post. Icahn said he is spending millions of dollars training mechanics on modern auto technology.

    Best place to buy/replace tires?

    I've bought tires at Sears, Goodyear, and Firestone. Most of the time its a matter of seeing what's on sales and what rebates are available. Sears is dying so maybe you can get a deal there!
