How to replace U-Joints & Balance Your Truck’s Driveshaft
Most people don’t think about replacing the U-joints on their truck until they hear the telltale whine. That’s exactly what happened to us and Project Over/Under recently. With the truck basically complete, we’ve mostly been enjoying it, but we’ve also done a little fine-tuning. We changed out the exhaust—our former kit was rubbing in a

MagnaFlow combats this problem with its Overland Series performance exhaust,

What Is a 5-Blade Turbo?
Hard-core diesel enthusiasts already know that “5-blade” is the current hot term in turbo talk that’s posted on web forums and social media networks. For the uninitiated, yes, turbochargers, not cutlery. That’s right, the term is associated with one of the most important pieces of an oil-burner’s overall makeup. Breaking things down a little further,
