    No 4 lo

    So, other than trying a few times to switch to 4-lo in neutral and park i haven't done any other trouble shooting. Just posting this so i don't forget lol. 4 hi works, switching to low the light flashes but never engages, it goes into 4-hi instead.

    Truck Awning, would you want one?

    So, I was looking around for a decent awning that I could just pull out the side of the truck and stow just as easily. I didn't really find anything I liked for a decent price. So I'm working with a (Chinese) company to make a custom size one that should look right on our trucks. would be 6' x...

    Another one of those, what is this connector threads. This is the B Pillar between the drivers front and rear doors. Any ideas what it would normally go to? I'm assuming it's for a feature I don't have on my vehicle.

    Ready to give up...

    ok, so I did a mock up a while ago on what I wanted to do for the grille of the TB. I've done measurements, cardboard mockups, 3d rendering, and I just can't come up with anything that won't look like a barrel of ass. The problem is, that despite the image making it look like that area is...

    Relays for headlights

    I've been looking at various lighting options and plan on completely replacing the stock headlights and housings. I've read about the misc DRL killer and quad beams, etc... but maybe it's just late and I'm distracted but I would like to end up with 3 relays for DRL, Low, and High. Is there a...

    LED Headlights, JW Speaker

    Ok, so I've been looking for some different lights for my TB. Thought about projectors, Cree LED, etc etc etc... And then I saw some JW Speaker LEDs. I am very impressed BUT they make mostly Jeep round retrofits. They do make a bracket to put them on just about anything with a flat surface...

    Trade LS for LT front end.

    Before I go buy a set of LT headlights, does anyone with an LT want to swap for LS headlights and grill? I'm going to fab a grill and would be easier without the grill covering the headlights. For no reason, here's a picture of my truck

    Engine Swap, now need engine run...

    I figured I'd start a new thread in the right section to get some help on getting the truck going after the engine swap. I turn the key and it clicks but no crank. No codes showing. Brand new battery, but I'm not sure if this is how the computer acts when it needs a relearn. this is a video of...

    Canadian cars

    There's a car in Canada I'd like to purchase, deals pretty much done. But I'm wondering about getting it back home, duties, fees, etc... Seems I need a letter from the MFG stating it meets DOT and EPA standards, or it can be listed as compliant already. I have seen their list, and it's not...

    engine differences

    I've been looking for a new engine and I see cheaper ones from 03 04 05, but a lot of places aren't listing these as working with the 06. I see some listed as working with 06-07 but the price jumps up. is there an actual difference with the engines?

    Might need a new engine...

    Ok, so there is a possibility that I may need to swap an engine in my truck. If that is the case, is there anything I should do while it's out, anything I should look for as far as an upgrade to the engine, etc... I see a lot of engines listing an "s" for the 8th digit in the VIN, I assume this...

    Latest Body Modification

    I call it the Never let someone else drive your truck mod... So, the story is that a semi decided to occupy the same lane as her at the same time so she (yes I let a girl drive my truck) had to leave the road and bounced off a telephone pole. No one hurt, air bags didn't pop, I think the...

    Cardone CV Shafts

    ok, I went to rockauto.com and I did a lot of different searches, I just can't find the CV shafts. Does anyone have a direct link? I just got my 2.5" lift and from what I've read you should swap in new CV shafts with the Cardone ones being proffered.

    Can't get the key out

    I've had a shit day today. CEL after pulling the boat (hoping it's just a MAF sensor that needs cleaned from the new filter) then an engine tap after sitting at an angle on the launch that didn't go away. No trailer lights on the way home, and now the key won't turn back far enough to even turn...

    New and improved washer nozzles

    My washers stopped working soon after I got the truck, and it seems to be a somewhat common issue. So I swapped in some ford/mazda "fluidic" nozzles Part number EC01-67-50YA They are a little smaller so I just JB welded them in and made sure I had them pointed where I wanted...

    New front end Idea...

    Someone tell me why this wouldn't work? remove all the front end junk, grille, headlight housings, and just run the front bumper up to the hood... some HIDs and balistic glass headlight cover, LED lights... there's enough cut out steel for the grille and air box that it shouldn't weigh that...

    Show your LED workshop

    There might be a better sections for this, but I kinda think of it as a tie in with the LED thread.
