    It seems that this winter got it all wrong We had a mild one and the west coast (Vancouver area) got a lot of snow...

They are talking about extending the time to April 15. Probably a good idea.
    They should enforce such a law here in ON too! BTW, my insurance asked me (in order to get the discount) if I would use my winter tires from November until late April!

    I saw a woman driving down our street during snowstorm last week rocking her car back and forth, each time to get maybe 12" further down the road. It took her at least an hour!... nothing I could do but watch and think about the poor transmission. Everyone should have the best snow tires they can get.

    Had the updated double piston calipers and 11" rotors installed on our 2009 T&C. I bought them from the SGI Salvage for a total of $225.00 including shipping, removed from a 7000 km wreck. As I am too busy and my garage is occupied by a project at the moment I took it to the shop that services our fleet of bush trucks. They were initially skeptical about the fit and impressed afterwards how simple it was. Even used the pads that came with the calipers as they were such low mile units.

    Night and day difference in the braking. Best money spent on this vehicle yet... with the exception of the key recall as one of my sons had lost the spare key somehow.

    Glad to hear you did the upgrade. Did you already have larger rims 17 inch I'm assuming to clear the new calipers?

    Did a quick trip to FL with the 2000 shortie. Added a bed platform to hide the tools and luggage needed. On the way back from FL had the bucking, stalling, running away and hesitating from a failing TPS but an Autozone about 2 miles off of 95 in Jax had me going again without trouble in 20 minutes.

    This is due to your camera settings and mainly to this site settings.

    Maybe a moderator can ask admins to change image settings for this site. I see image host shows the image correctly, but this site follows
    metadata orientation settings and not member's will.

    If that is a O2 sensor, exchange it for a Denso one. Bosch's are known to fail.
