    MC Toybox vs regear?

    I would go with some 4.88's and air lockers. You can go a lot slower with an auto than a manual transmission so I wouldn't bother with a toybox if you could even get one. There was only a few 5 speeds with a toybox when I got mine. I have a 4.7 toybox and crazy low has rarely been used. The...

    Cat Therm. Sensor Bad?

    I would try bypassing the thermo sensor and the emissions board and activate the VSV manually and see if you get air from the bypass hose. If that works, chances are you have a bad emission board or loose connector.

    33x10.5 going the way of 33x9.5???

    I called BFG earlier this week about 33x10.5 AT. They have no plans to stop making the tire and should be coming out with a production run soon. All the people that have back orders placed will get the first ones and so it might take some time before they start showing up in stock. If you want...

    Emissions Help Needed!

    If the fuse is bad or open, then you will measure 12V across the fuse. If they are all good, the you should not measure any noticeable voltage across the fuses. This is done with the truck on so be careful where you put the leads. You can also pull fuses and measure continuity. So the VSV's are...

    Emissions Help Needed!

    You sure a fuse wasn't pulled out when it was desmogged? Double check all your fuses. Measure voltage across them with the truck running. They should all be zero. The emission board provides a ground from what I remember. Unplug each VSV and measure the plug coming to it with your meter. How did...

    Emissions Help Needed!

    If you tried multiple boards, the pins in connector to the board could still be pushed back and not making contact. Pull the board and take off the enclosure and then measure continuity from the back of each pin in the connector to the back of the associated pin behind the plug on the board.

Check the vacuum supply to the both. Pull off the hose going back to the air cleaner. You should feel the air if it is in...

    Battery draw down...needing electrical wizardry

    You got a meter that measures current? Disconnect a lead on the battery and put you meter in the circuit. Make sure it is current mode and you have some spare fuses and start with the highest current setting and then move down until it displays the current. Now pull fuses one at a time until...
