Re: Repair or replace?

Somebody's living right! :thumbup: I'm late to the party but I agree with the route you took. Yours appears to have be repaired once before. Swapping in a direct replacement is the easiest and most cost effective. Sure, going with a 9" in tempting. But the Ford 8" is plenty strong for most applicati...

Re: So this happened this weekend
