I didn't read the article, but scrolling through I figured his photo below probably sums up his RRC expectations.
Every time I jump in my RRC I am immediately reminded just how nice it is, and I long for another road trip.
I don’t know. I agree an auto box is easy to drive, and that even in auto there are different flavors both good and bad. But there is nothing more satisfying than driving my IIA 109’s crashbox both on- and off-road. Then again, I put 250k miles on my ‘03 5spd Jetta Tdi Wagon, before handing it...

Mobil1 0W40 - 1000ppm Phosphorus / 1100ppm Zinc

I pulled my t-case/ZF as one unit, 96 D1. I used a borrowed motorcycle jack and needed about 2-feet of sill clearance to slide them out (accomplished with 4x6 wood cribbing). I pulled the cooling fan, put a few layers of cardboard between the engine and radiator (just to be safe), and had wood...

Thanks for all the replies. I'll have to shop around. FWIW, this RRC still has the factory exhaust (orig. 60k mile RRC). Futher, I'm in NJ but the LWB doesn't see any salt use. So, either a SS cat-back would last forever, or I don't really need it. The thing that bothers me most is not seeing...
