  1. It's probably hit or miss no matter where you go. Oreilly's was carrying Borg Warner, now it's Standard or Blue Streak...or at least that's what the boxes say now. Many years ago I had to buy a multi-function switch for my 93 F-250. My wiper delay was inconsistent. The first switch I installed only had one speed for the wipers, no high and no delay, only low speed. I got another switch from another store, that one caused my squirters to run constantly when the ignition was on. I drove to a 3rd store and finally got a switch that worked. Thankfully the switch was easy to replace as I tested them in the parking lot before I left. I don't think the manger at the last store believed I had gotten 2 bad switches in a row and put the second one I returned back on the shelf instead of in the warranty pile.
  2. I have a brand new metal detector, had it 2-3 years now and I think I turned it on once to see if it worked. I really want to take it camping but I always forget.
  3. My first vehicle was a 1983 F-100 with a 4.9 and a 4spd. I used that to haul my second vehicle home, my 1967 Mustang which I still have 23 years later. It took me two years to get the title and even though my father told me not to put money into it until I had it, I couldn't help myself. I at least had to get it running so I could play with it on back roads. I even used it in a movie a friend and I had to make in high school.
  4. Those would be her snow leopard socks. She's crazy about cats, you should see her jeep.
  5. Unfortunately I'm not talented enough to build something like that, I had to pay for one that was already built.
  6. I'm glad I did the conversion, the bigger brakes with my bigger tires make the truck stop like it's got OEM sized tires again.
  7. View Advert 2nd gen bumper and grill guard I have the original bumper off my 2001 Ram. It has roll on bed liner on the lower plastic part and the larger openings for OEM fog lights. It has the lower air dam as well. I did drill 2 holes to relocate the license plate for the grill guard, I may even have the OEM plate bracket lying around if needed. The grill guard is a Go Rhino 3000 series, part number is 3185MC if you want more details. I got this used from an older gentleman who only had the lower mounting brackets as he bought his truck with it installed and that was all it had. I had intended to make some upper brackets but never got around to it. It does still mount solid even with just the lowers and you can still get the mounting kit from Go Rhino for $30 if you want. The guard is in good shape, no dents or kinks, just the usual surface rust you get with chrome. I polish it off but it always comes back. The grill guard has an air dam attached that has already been cut to clear and has LED's on it. I soldered and heat shrank all the wiring to try and keep it tidy. I'm willing to separate the pair, asking $100 for the bumper and $250 for the grill guard. If somebody wants both, package deal would be $300.

  11. The gal whose car I was working on her boyfriend had his finger partially de-gloved by a ring. He said maybe you'll get a cool scar like me.
  12. I made a huge noob mistake yesterday. I went to look at a friends 2012 Focus that was initially a coolant leak but had turned into a no crank issue as well. I verified the relay was good then checked the starter. I noticed the nut that retains the power wire was missing, held it down and car started. I thought lets just remove the nut from the other post so we can find a matching one. I grab my ratchet, reach up to the post, stop and think "I should disconnect the battery...no, I'll be fine" . I proceed to loosen the nut only to have the wrench flop over, connecting the power, the wrench and my wedding ring to a ground. After the fireworks, I realize my wedding ring is REALLY hot and thankfully easy to remove . Now I have some missing skin, blisters and a small electrical burn where my wedding ring once sat. My wedding ring also had 2 spinning rings around the outside that are now fused in place. Never again will I think I'm too old to relive mistakes of the past. Thankfully it only burned slightly for about an hour and has been pain free since, but it sure looks like crap.
  13. The spring rod on my seat did the same thing, worked it's way over and stabbed the middle seat. I also had to readjust my steering wheel and mirrors due to increased height.
  14. I had thought about getting cheaper mirrors on Amazon, but a lot of the reviews complained of shaking. I got the 1Aauto mirrors and they jiggle a bit when you shut the door but nothing is blurry when rolling down the road. I really want to upgrade to the power folding/turn signal 4th gen style mirrors now from 1Aauto. They weren't an option when I got mine a few years ago.
  15. My straw is close enough to the bottom of the tank that I can slide 2 stacked quarters under it. It's been about 3 years now and I can run my tank low enough to trigger the low fuel light. I don't like to do that, but I can. The only thing I notice is that when I do have less than 1/4 and my truck sits overnight on an inclined surface, I sometimes need to bump the starter to run the pump for a few seconds to get it to fire up. I don't like any of my vehicles getting below 1/4 so it really hasn't been an issue.
