    Yea, I noted that, too -- which is strange because it's counter-productive. Why be a community member on a forum, have something to contribute, and not do it? Ya know?

    I agree! If I asked you for exact details about your on board air system I bet that you would give me a detailed description of parts used. Heck, you might even pass along some drawings. I asked about the LED conversion multiple times and have just been sent to a site to buy them. I don't know what resistors to buy or what leds to buy. So, screw it! I did it old school.

    I got the same kind of reply. It sometimes makes me wonder if the individual is a sales rep, lol.

    though it was not my gm truck i worked on, I did help a friend ('96 ford explorer) who ran into a ditch, crumbing his radiator and engine cooling fan into eachother ruing them, obviously by replacing his radiator and fan, but he still has some weird noise... truck runs though now

    My truck is about to turn the big 40k on the odo so time for a little tune up. New iridium spark plugs and a K&N filter. I'll do the trans fluid/filter next paycheck.
    Sometimes the best part of my job is that my chair swivels.

    K&N filter, Chrome avs ventvisors and aeroskin

    Got a "job" weedeating for my brother's friend's dad. So I drove to his house. I was just paid $60 for 2 hours of work.

    Today I:

    • Added a gallon of RainX 2-In-1 washer fluid since the reservoir was low
    • Added a diode to my custom Bussmann relay box to trigger the twin LED bars when the high beams are activated
    • Tested for proper high beam behaviour -- wow, now that's some light output!
