Re: Rearview Mirror glue

Did the Permatex kit again. The past few times I've done a fairly thorough surface prep... scrape the remaining glue from glass and button with a razor, wipe clean with carb spray, let it dry, wipe with alcohol, let it dry, do the prep/activator wipe, buff that, apply adhesive, tape button to window...

Re: Best Drop Hitch (w/ball)

The Curt ones stick out a little further, allowing me to drop the tailgate with the trailer hitched.
The Reese hitches are a little too short, and pulls the trailer into the truck enough that the tailgate won't fully open.

Re: fuel sensor

Yup. My usual shop unbolts the bed and slides it over a bit to get to the pump.
Other shops will drop the fuel tank out of the truck to replace the truck.
Shitty shops will wreck the fuel tank in the process. :angry:

Re: 12v Constant on Trailer Plug?

yeah, that one's always-on. Fords put that pin on a relay so it's only on with ignition. I ended up putting a switch in my trailer to connect/disconnect that pin to the trailer. Lets me isolate the truck so I don't kill its battery with the furnace/lights, but I can still charge the batt on the way ...

Could also be the locker actuator(s). Replaced mine with the rear diff and internals/brgs and I was able to get that operational.

Re: Lost all gears while driving, transfer case?

Got jacks/lift? It'd be pretty easy to diagnose the t-case if you can get teh wheels off the ground.
What's the transmission fluid look like?

No codes? Wonder if it's a trans solenoid.

Re: Power Wagons in Moab 2020 - May 4th - May 8th - Registration Open

GMRS only requires a license for high power (>2W) and repeaters. Otherwise it can be run license-free simplex and <=2W. Edited to add: on the "Gear" page, BTECH UV-5X3 is listed. That is not, and cannot be, a legal GMRS radio. It's a ham radio, not type-certified for FRS or GMRS use. Will it work, y...

There's likely some rain (snow) fading on that path, might pick up a few db in clear skies and with that a little less latency as data rate/qam constellation changes.

So the problematic shot just wasn't doable. I think the simulation software had bad DEM data. Couple trips by other techs in the past few months, including one to get an LTE gateway installed.

Re: Interest in a 4 Corners Recovery Group

Vehicles don't go in wilderness (legally).
"Backcountry" is the word you're looking for. Big difference in land use issues.

And I think a helicopter would be the ultimate recovery rig. :lol:
