    Looking for a replacement Adrenalin.
    Have driven 1500 miles in the last week to look at 3 different STA's. All 3 dealers promised no rust, only to get there and see the running board areas completely rusted out. 2 black ones were both spray bombed to hide the rust. The salesman stepped on the one running board and bent it right down. I really don't want to get a ranger or F150, but dang these poor SportTracs are rusting like crazy.

    I may end up getting out of the STA game all together.
    Interested in a spare parts truck ?
    I kept it as clean as possible.
    No body rust, some surface stuff underneath. Cab is near mint as well as bed.
    Front frame is fine, rear number crossmember took most of the damage.

    Guess I may have lucked out in that the first 5 years of my Adrenalin's life was in Baltimore, MD and the next five have been here in NC where the weather is not nearly as bad. Biggest issue i have with mine is the wear on the seats and that I go through brakes seemingly too often!

    As for the breaks. Try drilled and slotted rotors. It’s helped mine big time. I now can stop from 60 to a stop in 1/2 the time and length as before
    I got them off eBay for under 125 and they come with ceramic pads and made by black heart. I use the same brand on my 2007 mustang and god what a difference they make and have a 100% life time warranty
    Message me if you’d like the link[​IMG]

    Those are only drilled.... I see no slots..... I only run raybestos R300 rotors and Akibono pads... I can get the abs to kick in in a hard braking situation.... they stop beautiful !! Rotors and pads are like $60 each....
