This thing was brought up to texas between 04-06 and began sitting around 07. did a few little things and have drove it for 20 minutes until last weekend I took it to frankfort/traverse area for a 500 mile weekend camping trip. No problems, everything worked and didn't break down!
I had to replace the headlamp adjuster screws but those plastic ones still suck so they are aimed better but I would like it higher.
Had to re-wire license plate light
added drop hitch and ball
still needs a windshield
more bedliner for wheel wells and underside.
aaaaand I had this laying around so I mounted it up, fits perfectly on where the pin that held the auto trans shifter for this column was originally in.
Its got 4.10 gears, I was getting 13mpg over 500 miles or so w/ a high idle driving roughly 60mph when cruising.
I am likely going to have to re-wire the wiper and headlamp circuits, the connectors are all corroded don't get a good enough contact, looks like they may not be getting the correct volts or amperage through the circuit. That may be some of my headlamp issue but i still think they are aimed low and those plastic threads are stupid.
