The large SUV market is a crowded and competitive place to be these days, especially with the recent redesign of the Chevy Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon on new independently suspended platforms.

Here’s a question from a reader about adding power to a GM TBI engine. The principle is pretty much the same with any speed-density fuel-injection system, so check out engine guru Jeff Smith’s answer to a question posed by Nathan Seabaugh of Northern Illinois.

Jeep prices have gotten pretty crazy lately. Not everybody has tons of money to throw at a newer JK or JL Jeep Wrangler. But if you still want to go Jeeping, there are plenty of older YJ and TJ Jeep Wranglers out there for somewhat more realistic money. The most common engine choices when shopping
Hot on the news that Toyota is discontinuing the Land Cruiser after the 2021 model year, the folks at GR86.org have uncovered a recent patent application from Toyota for the “Grand Highlander” name.

The holidays are now behind us, and based on the increase in home and automotive DIY projects that have been happening while we’re in a pandemic state, we’re willing to bet tools were popular Chanukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa gifts this year.

The world “overlanding” has taken on such an interesting meaning in the recent years.
