    i dont think it'll cause ABS issues, but you will want to possibly swap the brake light switch. the cruise control side of the switch might be bad

    I've done a mod or two
    Tried to yank the bed off my truck, broke off a nut in the bed rail, threw my wrench and called it a night.

    I know you've got wood heat but this same concept should apply



    I have all electric heat and my SO normally puts the thin plastic sheeting over the windows during the winter to help better insulate our shitty single panes. This year I bought .060 thick sheets of polycarbonate and cut pieces of it to fill in the window sills and make a second pane.

    I used 3/8 thick 3m square weather stripping around the edges and am holding it tight against the window with l brackets.

    Last year this month my electric bill was 8.59Kwh with just bare windows (we got a kitten that would shred the plastic sheeting) this year it was 8.07Kwh, next month will be the start of the real test but I'm hopeful

    Yup. PT420-03023 is the part number I think. Original owner handed it to me with the unused 2nd key fob.

    I don't have ABS in my 98 and I love it. Extra room in the engine bay and I don't have any issues stopping. I've read stories on this forum from other members posting that ABS has given issue in the past

    We have some of them doubled up with plexy glass, I don't mind spending some cash on the forced air. Especially at 6am when I wake up and it's 12° out. The wood stove really helps Frome 4pm till past midnight.

    I know they existed in 04 but I didn't get the window sticker or plastic key.

    Many people delete ABS when they do a manual hub 4WD swap. The three or so times I've experienced it have been unpleasant. Prefer the 99 non-abs with mud tires in the rain honestly.

    Oh I did something bad... I bought a car phone. Technically it's a cell phone but I have the car version of it. It's the Motorola Dynatac 8000x, the world's first cell phone. Gonna mount it in the 300zx.
