Re: My wife's car blew up...

FESTIVA! I just sold one with 300,000km on it. It was thoroughly worn out. Good little cars, can take a lot of abuse. Remember the scene in Fun With Dick and Jane where they 'rescued' Dick from the Mexican border? I swear they can stuff a dozen or more Mexicans in the trunk of one of those cars!!! Such a great movie...

Bastardized Dana 50's, balljoints, unitized bearings, central axle disconnects...

Commanches have a partial frame...unitbody cab, rear frame. It's an odd setup, but works pretty well. Of copurse, the (unitbody) Cherokees are pretty good off-roaders!

Dodge never used the Dana 50. Only Ford did. Dodge put Dana 44's iin half tons, 60's in HD's. After 2001, no disconnects on anything.
