Brand new 2016 Ford F350. Added Rigid Industries 30" light bar to the grille, DOT fog lamps in the bumper, and A-series bed lamps. Also added an additional cargo camera for backing or hooking up trailers that uses all factory controls and infotainment screen. Think of the time (and words) saved when trying to align a trailer in the dark. A must have!

Looks like this gear oil was about due. We recommend to replace your differential gear oil every 75k miles. Fluid in poor condition can shorten the life of gears, bearings, and seals. Maintenance pays, repairs cost...

Somebody got a nice Christmas present... Fab Fours Black Steel front and rear bumpers powder coated to match the King Ranch lower two-tone. Included in the custom fit front bumper is a Warn 12k winch and Rigid DOT legal fog lamps. Rear bumper allows for factory back up sensors, receiver hitch, and additional LED reverse lamps. Also added a UWS tool box for supplies. Put all that in front of a Texas sunset and you're ready to go. Who's next?

Had a few 'new car smell' F250's stop in for some fleet outfitting and upgrading. Each of these beauties received AirLift's 5,000lbs, automatic (hands-free) adjustment air spring leveling kits, window tint, and Weathertech floormats. Two trucks received CM flatbeds with RKI toolboxes. Two others received B&W gooseneck turnover ball hitches. These trucks look great and are ready to work!

We offer Pre-Purchase Inspections. These are designed to help you make the best decision on the purchase of a vehicle. Just because a vehicle is offered as 'Certified' or 'Guaranteed' doesn't always mean it what it is sold to mean. This vehicle, a Toyota 'Certified' Used Vehicle was brought to us to have a look. Overall it was a clean vehicle with low miles. However, the technician noticed a few things that seemed 'not quite right'. A closer inspection and investigation found the padding under the rear carpet to be soaking wet. It's one thing to have dampness on top of the carpet, but under?! This is a bad sign. Other indications under the vehicle showed the vehicle has possibly been under some water. A vehicle that has been submerged can be a huge long term headache and expense. Help us, help you, make an educated decision on the purchase of your next vehicle.

WARNING!!
EMISSION CONTROL RELATED CONTENT BELOW!
ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Whether you can appreciate it or not, your vehicle is an engineering marvel. You put fuel in, press some buttons, it makes noise, the fuel disappears, and takes you where you want to go. So simple, right? Cars have only really been around for 100 years or so and the science behind what it takes to make them work has been increasing and improving exponentially. Ask anybody who has driven a vehicle from the 1920’s to compare ease of use and convenience to today’s vehicles and see what they say. Vehicles from ‘back in the day’ were amazing for their time but today’s vehicles just downright futuristic. Some may fear the technology take-over of transportation but these are the same people who complain when their heated-seats, back up camera, or A/C doesn’t work. One of the main things that control vehicle advancement is the pollution that comes out of the tailpipe. Tailpipe exhaust, or emissions, are regulated by the government. If a vehicle is producing an inappropriate amount of harmful emissions, this vehicle will not pass inspection. This makes it difficult to lawfully operate a polluting vehicle on the road. Emissions standards are tightened every year by the government. Automakers respond by engineering and manufacturing vehicles that produce less than the required amount of emissions while being frugal with fuel consumption. Bottom line, the engineering behind newer vehicles is brilliant.
One of the minute components that the vehicle’s computer utilizes to monitor tailpipe emissions is called an exhaust oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor is designed to generate or modify an electrical signal based on the oxygen content of an area. Most vehicles manufactured in the past 30 years have an oxygen sensor. To burn fuel, the engine must also have an ample supply of oxygen. The engine computer can determine the quality of the emissions based on the oxygen content. The computer is programmed to know that it takes 14.7 pounds of air to burn one pound of fuel with optimal emissions results. So if the oxygen sensor reports that it is seeing a lot of oxygen, it sends a signal and the computer will add fuel. If the oxygen sensor reports that it isn’t seeing much oxygen, the computer will compensate by taking away fuel. This back and forth, teeter-totter, process occurs very rapidly (hundreds of times per minute). Without the oxygen sensor, the computer can only ‘guess’ as to how much fuel to add or take away. Guessing usually results in excessive harmful emissions.
The computer is only as accurate as the oxygen sensor signal. An oxygen sensor’s accuracy increases when they are warmed up (hot). That means that harmful emissions could result in the time it takes for an oxygen sensor to heat up. So, engineers decided that each oxygen sensor needed to have its own heater, to warm it, and decrease the computer’s ‘guessing’ time (which could result in more harmful emissions). So, all that to say, when the vehicle is first started or when the computer deems appropriate, the oxygen sensor heaters will turn on, and the internal temperature of the sensing unit will quickly rise resulting with increased accuracy. Shown below is a quick video using FLIR temperature readings that shows the oxygen sensor heater switched on and temperatures reach 250 degrees and climbing in about 45 seconds. Add Oxygen Sensor Heaters to the list of things that you didn’t even know your vehicle had but are required for proper emissions.
