    Just spent hours in the heat clearing ants that infested the truck, again.
    This time they found a nice home for themselves and their eggs inside the fender on top of the liner and in that spot where it meets the body near the door. Noticed some had started coming in on the passenger side. Sneaky bastards.

    The dealer wants $90 for the ECT sensor. Any good aftermarket alternatives or cheaper OEM vendors? I messaged Joe Joe from the FB group so we’ll see.

    Just wait until the thunderstorm/fire work test.

    Thankfully mine is unfazed by either. Perks of living near a gun range.

    Thankfully thunderstorm season has passed, might get a windstorm in fall tho. Fireworks are okay though I can be home for those. My basement is quiet and I'm trying to furnish it for her, it's a lot bigger than a crate so I figure she won't feel as cooped up.

    Could've checked McGeorge or other sites yesterday.

    Does she have a corner she can hang out in? I find that, at least with cats, they really feel more secure in a space they fill .

    I could probably limit it to an even smaller nook. She likes my closet in my room but I think the closet in the basement is too small for her.

    McGeorge is more reasonable at $50 but still seems like a lot for what it is. Oh well, I’ll just have to bite the bullet and order it from them. I was also considering the Delphi sensor from Amazon at 10 bucks a pop but I haven’t heard good things about aftermarket sensors in general.

    It's a sensor that has proven itself for many miles in many vehicles.

    $50 is a cheap fix.

    I wouldn't chance an aftermarket sensor on these trucks or any sensor purchased off Amazon/ebay for that matter, counterfeits galore. Grab from dealer site or take the part number into an auto parts store and see if they have the Denso equivalent

    Hand feeding her hasn't helped?

    Maybe a small treat, and getting her to follow to her food?

    Atta girl

    But laying some, hand ripped on her food, doesn't help?

    I had to do the same for Jacquee, my rescue pit, cause she was timid as hell and stuck to me like white on rice. Wouldn't leave my side at all not even to eat.

    Well, I'd just let her be.

    When she's hungry, she'll know where the food is as long as you leave it out.

    They used to be out here, but you gotta have big balls to try and compete with Costco on their own turf haha. Took 7 years and they were all boarded up or turned into other big box stores. Costco dumped prices and took losses until Sam's folded and left haha
