    If he has an aftermarket radio then he defiantly should. I am pretty sure you adjust it on the stock radio by pulling out the power button and turning it.

    ( The button might come off like mine did if its cracked behind it, not a big deal. I didn't realize that was a function to pull it out and turn until I glued mine on and tried to get it back off. Never use gorilla glue to put a volume knob back on.)

    How hard is it to get all the fluid out? I read that the drain plug only drains like 3 quarts.

    You could build something out of 2x4s for the conopy to sit on and if you're concerned about it weathering, make a little roof for it with a tarp. You could take it a step further and make it tall enough to back your truck under for easier loading/unloading. I put mine on in the winter and off for the summer.

    I've only done one flush. Every 30K I do drain and fills. When I flushed I disconnected the return line into a milk jug, started the truck to flush about 4 qrts. Stop the truck and fill 4 qrts. My buddy helped me and we did this 4-5 times till you see bright red fluid. What helps to keep the fluid red is to install a cooler after the radiator cooler.

    At the time I bought two cases of Redline D4, expensive yes. Now I use Amsoil Universal ATF.

    Did the back to black work well for you? I've used it multiple times on my fender flares and never really got much results. lol it seems like once it dries it goes back to the color it was before.

    Not hard. The outlet of the radiator cooler which is on the drivers side. Disconnect the line going back into tranny. That way you flush the cooler as well.

    ^Weird, I haven't heard of Warn motors going out. I've been hard on mine for a few years now and haven't had a problem... maybe I should see if there is some maintenance to do to it...
