    98 Grand Caravan: Replace The Short Block?

    Such is what I'll likely do with Intrepids when mine finally dies (going for at least 250,000 on this tranny). The cost of a used Intrepid in decent shape can be less than the price of a new transmission alone. XD

    98 Grand Caravan: Replace The Short Block?

    My '94 Intrepid has over 222,000 miles on the original engine and tranny. To be fair, though, the tranny has been failing for the past 100K miles; I just know how to drive it to avoid further aggravation. :D My 3.3 still purrs like a kitten. I don't see any sense in acquiring a depreciating...

    motorcycle shopping

    One of my best buds had a Buell (can't remember the model) and he loved it. He'd probably still have it if he didn't trade up for a HD V-Rod.

    Sounds like it would be a good time to let it go, but please don't get a vette if you're looking for a good investment. XD

    Your favorite Ski/Snowboard location

    Agreed. Big Sky is renowned for it's very short to non-existant lift lines (except on President's Day weekend). This year has been great for snow, and two winters ago it received the most snow in 10 years (510+ inches for the season). Combine your riding experience with Moonlight Basin and...

    Monoprice vs. Best Buy

    HDMI is HDMI. Feel free to spend however much more on the spendy, nice cables, but there is no discernable difference in HDMI cables. Unless you have an oscilloscope, that is.

    Monoprice vs. Best Buy

    I use Monoprice for all my HDMI, component, optical toslink cables, and more. Perhaps they make their own cables for the most part? That could explain a lot of the lower cost. At their prices and quality, though, they just can't be beat.
