Re: Share your switches setup

I finally decided to add some switches to my truck, I went with an inexpensive panel and remote relay/fusebox setup. The reason I chose this option is because it's compact and I like the fact that it uses traditional relays and fuses that are serviceable. The newer, more expensive units use integrat...

Re: How I Fixed My Code P0456

Well it's been 4-1/2 years since my original post and my check engine light came back on for this same code a couple months ago. I have a mandatory smog test coming up next month, so I figured I better get to the bottom of it. I revisited all the same diagnostic procedures as discussed originally, b...

Re: Flickering 4wd light

When all my four-wheel drive and Locker lights were flashing I found right behind the right front headlight in the fender is a plug with a whole bunch of yellow wires that controls everything to do with the sway bar and the lockers was not plugged all the way in from the factory. I'll check for tha...

Re: Flickering 4wd light

Did you use a factory transfer case position sensor or the aftermarket, mis-calibrated junk? I would focus on the TCPS.

You can test it, it should have approximately:
2H - 1172 - 1175 Ω
4H - 677 - 691 Ω
Neutral - 406 - 415 Ω
4L - 208 - 213 Ω

Re: Another Government Wagon Auction

I wonder what they do on GSA auctions when "Reserve not met"?? Well it looks like they relisted it and probably lowered the reserve price: https://gsaauctions.gov/gsaauctions/aucalsrh/?sl=91QSCI21276405 It is rough, has high milage and is missing parts.

I stand corrected... it’s not just another cup holder, it’s a whole new center console.

Re: No More Manual T-Case Shifter for 2021

Maybe it’s just an option for the upper trim levels, perhaps the Tradesman might still have a manual lever.

Look on the bright side, they made room for another cup holder! :roll:

Re: Is there an exhaust fix

A warped manifold is what causes broken bolts, check the flatness with a straightedge, I've seen them out by as much as 1/4". The warpage causes extra strain on the end bolts until they pop. Don't just replace the broken bolt, have a machine shop surface it flat again and you'll get longer service l...

In your signature it says that you have the winch thermal protection bypass, does it make any difference if that is removed and returned to stock?
