    This is what I did as well.

    Today I dropped off my truck at the shop because I can't figure out my clunking noise. Also finished up editing a wheeling video last night.

    Head unit. That's it.


    I wish I would have thought of this "technique" sooner.

    you can also take apart the flasher relay and drill out one of the soldered connections and it stops the hyper blink for free. But it then won't detect a burnt out bulb. So I just have to check ur lights every once in a while.

    I dug it. The hardest part i have is cutting it down to 5 minutes or so. Current one I'm working on is around 10 mins long mostly because I feel bad cutting my buddies trucks out.

    Changed it's oil, a few thousand overdue but I wasn't low and I haven't added any since it's last change.
    Looked like straight coffee when it came out though, the new oil was almost invisible on the dipstick compared to the old.

    Got some goodies in the mail today (gallon 85w/140 Lucas, 5quarts 5w/30 redline, and an OEM front diff drain plug). Might wait a week or two to change the oil since I got it a little early.
