    HERE'S MY FIRST POST!!!!!
    MY '96 3.4 X-CAB 4X4 FRONT SEAT BELTS WON'T RETRACT BY THEMSELVES!!!!
    A LITE TUG NEAR THE RETRACTOR DOES WONDERS AND I HAVE ADAPTED TO THIS. IT'S THE PASSENGERS SIDE THAT GETS TO ME.... AFTER USE IT COULD BE A DAY OR TWO BEFORE I FIND THE BELT HANGING OUT THE DOOR. GRRR!
    IS THERE A WAY TO LUBE THE RETRACTOR? HAS ANYONE BEEN IN THERE BEFORE? LOOKING AT THE GEN 1 PARTS LIST (WHO KNOWS HOW LONG AGO IT WAS PRINTED) I SEE THEY WANT ABOUT $180!!!!!
    ANY HELP????

    its tough. Some customers bitch they retract too quickly and too snug.. others say they are too slow and wont retract.

    hey.... thx for all the input. sorry for all the !!!. i don't know how to get the smilies up yet but as you can see i do know how to turn the caps lock OFF.
    think i'm gonna like this place.
    on another note.... just recently got back from san francisco, 900 mi. i drove I5
    all the way back at speeds of 60- 85 with the ac on (god it's hot down there) and about 500# of tools in the back. there are steep grades in n. ca. and in or so i was out of od where needed. i still avg. just under 21 mpg! i'm lovin' it.

    d and i are lookin' to upgrade from our tent trailer and was lookin' at the '04-06 dakota 4.7's but i don't think i can leave my dependable taco. will have to downsize our trailer thoughts instead i guess.

    Fuel difference only when in the skinny pedal!

    My dealer replaced my retractor under warranty even though I didn't have warranty any more! Called it a "major safety issue!" That was in 07 and on a 96 Taco.
