Almost 2 years update

Well, it looks like this was it for my reservoir- strangely, because I would've expected the water bladder to go first, but it's the blue part of the reservoir that's losing air. It bubbles quite...

Will fit in any pack- you pressurize after the bladder is in, based on need (i.e., you might have to pressurize it just a bit if there is not much space).

Good news and not so good news- but I hope the good news trump the not so good ones.

Ford E350 rear axle swap

I bought an '03 7.3 PSd with a 4.10 rear axle, with about 160k miles- I'm not about to pull anything heavier than ~ 5000lb, and I don't like the buzziness of the engine. First time I tested it I had...
