    Well, was driving down I-75 in the slow lane the other day, and looking at the rear end of the Dodge truck ahead of me. I like looking at the rear axels of these new trucks labled 4X4, they make me laugh! It looked like a Dana 44. I pulled next to it, and in big letters, it said DELPHI/QUASI Steering. Anyone else seen anything like this? Looks good, but I don't think that it would haul any wieght! GOPHERKILLER

    4 Wheel steering.

    I though General Motors were the only folks to have it available. I have no idea how well these hold up.

    Ain't technology cool?

    I was talking to my brother today, and he said that 4-wheel steering is nothing new. He said that he has put lardge fire trucks (he's a fireman,) into regular parking spots. He said they have had it for years, and it is great! GOPHERKILLER
