    Yeah, privacy is an issue. Easy Google search and you have name and address. Same downside for the license plate.

    Most people won't have any idea what it is. $5 is cheap enough that I won't feel bad tearing it off.

    If I piss someone off bad enough, they could just as easily follow me home.

    If that's on a 100, I've got one if you need it.
    I ordered it by mistake.

    Thanks Rich. I ordered enough studs before I started breaking them.

    When I started having trouble with lug nuts seizing and breaking wheel studs, I would drill a small hole in the top of the nut big enough for a penetrating oil straw. Then hit it with a short blast of your favorite oil. I use free all.
    Free All® Deep Penetrating Oil - Penetrants - Products

    Amazing stuff I the mechanics used on tanks and jet engines.

    Yup, the GX470 is paid off. Paid too much but no complaints. She’s been a great all around vehicle. 04 with just under 130k (had 88k when purchased) now so ought to last a long time.

    I see. Your signature says 99 UZJ100, and no mention of GX470. I thought you got a new UZJ100.

    Now I just need to wait for the GM master cylinder fittings and tee block to show up.
    I learned that a good double flare is like a fine wine... when it gets created it needs to be savored.

    I can almost feel my foot pressing on the brake pedal..., nope it is still too early. Hoping to get there soon.

    Had the “Trac Off”, “4Lo” and “Check Eng” lights come on in Tina’s LC. Going to see Dr. Murf tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    We had the same lights on our 200 come on. In our case it was related to a boogered up transfer case switch that needed replacement. Not a serious issue, Dr. Murf and his team fixed us right up. Hope yours turns out to be a simple fix also.

    Got a p0441 code. Cleared code and installed a brand new gas cap. One thing to note on the new cap vs the 240k mile cap is the cap gasket. On the old cap, the gasket was pretty hard and not at all pliable. The new cap gasket was nice and soft. You could easily conclude it would seal much better.

    No reappearance of code.
