    my truck's temperature and compass gauge is out. What is the cause of this?

    And also does anyone know what kind of BAJA bumper this is?

    if its not a fuse,im gonna take a guess and say that on the temp guage/compass....you have a bad or broken board. you can take the unit out and apart and do some necessary soldering, and you should be good to go.

    They are notorious for going out...When mine broke i called all over southern CA to junk yards etc to find a console and there were none to be found, they were already taken. Then i decided to take on the soldering task, and SUCCESS!

    well..............lots of places you can go, but then again, lots you wouldnt wanna do either. if you have someone with a winch, you can do more, but if its muddy as hell, you will have more of a chance of getting stuck. there are lots of guys with prerunners, sport and offroad, that wheel the hell outta them.................you just gotta know your limits man, and be sure to wheel with someone, especially since you have 2 wheel drive.
