When you get a chance, can you get some exterior dimensions (rough length and diameter) of that little black rubber cap at the end of the column shifter linkage above the steering box? Trying to find a suitable replacement. :)

This morning's sunrise. A little smokey due to a local forest fire.

Did anyone ever get you this measurement? If not, I can check when I get out to my garage sometime this week.

Also, do you happen to have a pic of the piece you are talking about?

I got you! Bunch of pictures and measurements coming along. You’ll likely want to round these measurements a bit, as the rubber is old and a bit deformed, but you should generally be able to make it happen with these, I hope.

Feel free to send me one if you end up making any. 🤓

Yet another example of how procrastination pays! I didn't mention how my picture of the truck at sunrise came to be. I'd stalled there. Turns out it was an electric fuel pump wiring issue. I thought visible gas in a clear (also non-stock, sorry) filter meant fuel was moving, but it wasn't.
