10.22.21 (MP3): ...A Road Tripping Deep-Dive Special - Mechanical Lockers & Hard Parts VS Electronannies & Computer-Aided Traction for Off-Road Functionality (a.k.a. Who's In Charge of Your Truck?), or Who's Skill Set Is It?
When time for negotiations are through and Lelu Dallas's multipass won't cut the mustard (Bunky), you can usually fall back on a mechanical part to function like the instructions said it would. That's not always the case with digital traction aids and computer-controlled robo-'froaders. Point is, there are good points and bad points for each, but the bads for knuckle-dragging hard parts don't look to be nearly as hazardous as the downsides of fancy programming and traction voodoo. The Garage Hour goons are here to help figure out what's it to you.
While we're in there, we've also got some parts humor, flaky drivers and a few pot-shots at Mom (because no one can lay it on thicker than her).
