      I have a couple nit picky items left. 1.) how to disable ABS light after CDL switch install and 7 pin mod? 2.) air bag occasionally blinking red 3.) oil teapot blinking yellow intermittently. Thinking about disabling instead of $450...

      I saw where one guy mounted solenoid under the hood. I have room in front of the battery for it. I actually like that alot. i will have to get new leads made to reach out front. leaning hard to doing it that way.

      glad I could help. i have attacked nearly every system and replaced wear components. It is now leak free and seems reliable. I still have the power steering noise. it is rather bizarre.

      I went the cheaper route on a winch purchase. i deliberated over this for several weeks and decided that i will likely use the winch once every 6 months and will not be taking serious risks on holes that I go through. I purchased the Smittybilt...

      on closer inspection, the elbow connects to the radiator with a compression fitting and will swivel. so , I loosened it up, rotated it to where i want it, and the tightened it with a 17mm wrench. pretty much problem solved. Also, got the...

      The leaked turned out to be the transmission line elbow that screws in the radiator. the problem is when you tighten it, it points to the top and touches fan shroud. i guess i will put some teflon tape on ot and see if it will snug up and be...

      BTW, i cranked engine and checked brake booster for vac, and had exactly none. The hose adapter that screws into the intake has a fairly narrow opening, and it was plugged, presumably when i was cleaning intake with brake Kleen, which dissolved...

      i thought about going around the perimeter of the sunroof with a 1" strip of my epdm roofing tape that I used on my camper. I am not sure how easily it would be to get off though, when the time came.
