    Usually, if it clicks when filling up it is the purge valve or the canister. I would change out the vale and see if that makes a difference. Do you have any CEL on?

    Nope no codes no cel.

    The purge valve on top of the tank will be my next thing. Just sucks I have to replace it.

    It absolutely does, 4 bolts to pull the bed off might be the easiest way to do it. It will get gummed up like a diff breather and will not allow gasses to vent and will make it a PITA to fill up.

    edit: 6 bolts holding the bed on!

    I hope you have 6 bolts holding your bed on, otherwise you’re missing a couple.

    Found out that my parasitic draw problem was connected to my intermittent airbag light. Opened up the control module to find the capacitor died and killed some other things too. 20211119_160831.jpgFound a used srs control module locally for $50 from a 97. After replacing the capacitors no more dead batteries and no more airbag light.

    Had some good sunlight/weather today. So we decided to switch gears and paint some shit.

    20211126_115624.jpg 20211126_131308.jpg 20211126_131313.jpg 20211126_134557.jpg 20211126_152808.jpg 20211126_152815.jpg


    And when we mounted the new rack, I noticed the roof was hammered. Clear coat was pretty much gone, and I was down to primer in spots.
