Installed a Blue sea systems OLED voltage meter in a clean location and wired in a switch to override the interior lights turning on when the liftgate is open - this is huge for sleeping with the liftgate open or generally having the gate open for long periods while fishing, at camp, cooking on the gate, etc. Prepping for an upcoming trip west next month.

There was previously a 12v socket where I installed it, so I just plugged it in there directly. Checking with a multimeter, it reads about .2V lower than at the battery terminals where it's installed in the cabin.What does the volt meter hook to? Is that just piggy backed off the 12V DC Cig Lighter?
The War Wagon got its final bit of planned service—transmission flush and ASFIR skid plates.
I did the drain-and-fill routine four times. Fluid started out dark brown but not burnt smelling. Fluid got redder and redder each time. New fluid came out bright red out of the check valve as I adjusted the level.
Took me damn near 1 year to put the skids on. I was too impatient to wait for Dissent aluminum and ordered ASFIR. Then they sat in my garage for 18 months.

What’s the part number for the shaft? I was told to buy the whole assembly.Replaced the ignition cylinder shaft as preventative maintenance on my '99 UZJ100 with 332,000 miles. The most time consuming part was getting the original (unbroken) shaft out of the ignition barrel.
The replacement ignition shaft (current production OEM) has subtle differences from the original part.
