    I dealt with this for a few days during a really rainy spell. It went away on its own and I totally forgot it had been happening. Did you find the solution?

    Not sure if you deal with rust/corrosion a ton, but if you do I would maybe order a spare set of the main spring eye bolts. They get seized in the front bushings fairly often.

    My AZ truck doesn’t have a spec of rust on it and my drivers side had to be cut out. Wheelers has them for sale if you find yourself having to cut them out.

    Not yet but I’m pretty sure it is the controller in the driver side panel it’s easy to take out and replace it I just haven’t gotten a part number and price yet. I did just have everything taken apart the other day to change out both my driver and passenger door handles and I noticed no signs of moisture

    wiggle the door handle while you try to unlock it, you will need to lubricate some of the internal door components too.

    My passenger side door did that, locked every time I tried to open it from the outside. I took the door panel off and lubed the locking mechanism, it's smooth as silk now.

    Replaced the shifter linkage bushings. Solid as a rock now. The downside is now I can't wiggle the shifter and pretend I'm back to driving a stick...

    Little high up, IMO.
    Your pooch could end up on the dash, or worse, in an emergency stop.

    Front End Alignment done today. It helped, since I took the sway bar off.
    Next on the list, a pair of kick-out sliders.

    New lights came in, feels good to finally get rid of the awful tinted junk that the previous owner put on this truck.

    Putting in some work. More pictures to come. Also definitely recommend ordering replacement main eye bolts if you plan to take your leaf springs off. I had to cut mine

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did get new bolts to have on hand, but the main eye bolt popped right out with one light hammer blow. Gotta love anti-seize!
