Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Keeping in mind the truck has 385000 on it anything that happens is expected, but had it in four wheel drive working in the ditch in some mud and went to get back on to the highway and heard a loud bang. So had a look and the chain had come of the gears in the transfer case and punched out a huge chunk of the case. Loaded it up and took it in a rebuilt one was 2300 dollars, which sucked didn't think it would be that much. But at least it runs great again.
