  1. Good info ..... thanks Mike!
  2. Door hinge

    Have used a motorcycle/quad jack also ..... Used some bushings for a GMC .... they were a little larger and fit the worn holes better.
  3. Power door locks

    If it's just the switch ..... it's an easy repair. Pop the window/lock pod out of the door. Easy to do with a small screwdriver. Un-plug and remove the switch. Gently remove the flat panel on the underside of the switch pod. The contacts will now be visible. A small piece of fine/worn out wet & dry sand paper can be used to clean the oxidation off of the copper contacts. Wipe with a cue-tip and brake cleaner. Re-install ...... have cleaned mine 3-4 times. Note: The plastic of the switch pod is old and tabs can be broken off / missing. Small zip ties work very well to hold the bottom panel in place. The whole operation will take 10 - 15 minutes.
  4. '02 ...... Atlantic Blue Forlorn old grave .... found it out in a meadow in west central Alberta
  5. Day Time Running Lights ..... compatible ?
  6. 16x7 Dodge Ram Steel Chrome Wheels

    Have you checked for runout with a dial indicator when they are on the truck ? My 1st Gen would vibrate like yours. On a long sweeper curve, does the vibration phase in .... then gradually phase out. In and out, in and out?
  7. Exhaust manifold

    Good looking manifold ! Thanks for the pic
  8. Exhaust manifold

    jlbayes ....... any photo's of your stainless manifold ? Like a header ?
  9. Headlight options

    Very interesting thread ...... Like Michael, I also have an '02 ..... the difference being a Canadian spec'd vehicle with mandatory 'Daytime Running Lights' Would like to up-grade also ..... with economy in mind. Perhaps the Flosser 9104's with another lens polishing ....
  10. Remove the console to change out the sunglasses door. Fairly easy to do. A little on the expensive side if you're a Canadian ... $60.- CAD I store chewing gum packages in mine. The garage door compartment is fairly useless ..... removed all the plastic 'guts' in mine ..... have a package of business cards there.
  11. I make an 800 mile trip to the BC interior a couple times a year. Lots of adverse. Usually a light load of 1,000lbs. or so. Clean filters and TC-W3 ..... put my foot into it. Miles per gallon isn't a factor here. Full/multiple heat cycles throughout the power train. Old truck thinks it's a Corvette ! Just runs great !
  12. I don't want to say the R word...

    The 'brine' that's sprayed on the roads here is 23% salt. It dissolves the spray equipment and the spray truck's removable sub-frame. Replaced every second year. I wash the underside of my truck and Jeep 2-3 times per week. Don't know if this makes any difference or not .... spray the 'wax' on the underside after the wash and rinse. This is at a local car wash. That 'brine' is bad stuff !
  13. Oh no ..... not another AC thread !

    Ordered the evaporator and heater core for my '02 .... arrived the next day. Got it all back together this afternoon. Very labor intensive. Much debris around the evaporator. Mike's video was very good. Thanks Mike!
  14. Have learned a lot from the threads on the HVAC systems in our trucks. Will be digging into my system soon. Question for you folks that have changed out the Evaporator & Heater cores .... Did you use OEM parts? Why I ask is that the Evaporator core lists for $588.- The Heater core lists for $221.- Add 12% tax .... If you've used 'other' brands successfully ..... would like to hear about them. Thank you .....
