    01 counts too...

    I just got a set of CAPA certified ones off Amazon. If you don’t buy CAPA certified you may as well get the cheapest you can find.

    just rotated my tire a few days ago. this morning driving to get a coffee with my windows down i hear a loud scraping sound coming from what seems to be my rear driverside tire. the sound is intermittent, it makes a sound once per tire rotation. i figured a rock but this sound is more of a metal on metal sound. the only thing i can see is the weights used to balance are very close to my rear drum. i have 15" wheels so the tolerance is very tight.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Update: i got under the truck to check it out.

    Is that red cap on the drivers side for your washer fluid?
    Did you clean your mass air sensor?

    Fridge is in! [​IMG] This time I can actually use my ARB slide! Can open the fridge inside and outside the camper now. Also makes cleaning the fridge a whole lot easier! Also have another battery from the previous Flip-Pac owner and I'm thinking about mounting it behind the fridge on the slide. Everything clears just perfectly! No more fridge bouncing around the back of the truck! Also fridge vents right next to the window so hopefully that will help keep the heat and power usage down.

    i can always roll it and clutch start it?
    does that still work these days
    my 79 Corolla long time ago I had to clutch start a few times on the roll, that was fun!!!

    but i will also have to disobey the warnings at the pump to turn engine off
    and how does one change the oil with engine still running!
    what mess did i get myself into this time...

    DRL Delete

    Alrighty guys, I’ve searched and found little more than confusion on this topic. I need help from the pros here. I have a 2003 that I want to delete my day time running lights. Anyone know exactly which wire to cut for sure? Anyone have access to the wiring schematic for the ‘03 DRL relay. This is what I have under the dash.

    Love the new sleeping area and headroom the Flip-Pac provides. I loved my RTT but this is a huge improvement! New sheets!

    Was needing a new intake tube to install my meth injection kit in and ended up copying @mechanicjon pretty much exactly lol. Costed me about $70 as the cheapest aluminum tube i could find was $30. Overall I think it looks really clean and was cheaper than all the expensive plastic ones.66C5EB15-056E-406D-807C-697E7735CFCC.jpg

    I got the wiring diagram from TIS. cut the green/white wire. It’s the parking brake switch. I did this with my 2000, but I put a switch in instead of cutting it
