    WHERE IS THIS S.O.B???

    I got stuck in town last night without any tail lights or brake lights (or any dash lights). Checked the fuses, "TAIL" was blown, I replaced it, and the same thing happened. It blew again.

    So I go to AUTO ZONE (thats another story in its self, needless to say, I will NEVER go there again) and the guy says I might could check the flasher relay. So I buy one, go out to fix it, and i cannot find the sob. I looked everywhere, (I think).

    Iv searched here and on TTORA and couldnt really find much on where exactly the relay is. In my Haynes book, they show it right under fuse panel above your left foot. But again, I couldn't find it.

    Call me a dumbass or newb, i dont care, I just need to find this relay.:mad:

    Thanks guys:cool:

    Hey, nothing here, stop doing that!!
    Just look to your right! ->
    Yup, I think your right. It should be right behind the fuse panel there in the cab. Not sure which one though. Anyone else?
