going to tackle the dropping the transmission pan and re-freshing that this weekend. downloaded the TSB from this site, looks not too awful bad.
found a place to put a coin holder, my 4X4 didn't have one. installed new bilestine off road 5100's all the way around, and i did not do it but someone managed to hit me in the rear bumper bent mine probably totaled his escort.
I am getting ready to install PUTCO STREET LIQUID BILLET PEDALS, TRD CAI, PAINT THE CAI stripes and lettering with my slate metallic touchup paint/paint the red hose with gray to match the other part of my engine cover, and waiting for my HOMELINK MIRROR so I can install it as well. I was good enough to save up about $550. The TRD CAI was $325 new and shipped, HOMELINK for $138.50 shipped, and the pedals for $107 shipped. PICS will come!
Alright, here are the pics of my weekend work that I promised. I haven't seen any other like it. Semi-Gloss Black border on Engine Cover, Cast Aluminum on TRD/Engine Cover middle/fuse box lid/relay box lid/TRD pipe, and Slate Metallic for lettering/numbering on TRD CAI and Engine Cover.

Not totally sure what has happened here, and have searched to no end. Noticed when turning on the parking lights/headlights, the lights for everything in the center (console light, HVAC lights, 4wd light switch, etc) does not come on. The floor light on the passenger side does not come on, but...
I have searched the forum but not found anything. My cigarette lighter works, but none of my other 12 volt outlets work in the truck even when it is running. Does anybody know if there is a fuse (and where is it located) that controls these outlets? I looked in the fuse box on the driver's...
I have already removed the mesh screen in the throttle body and the cabin filter is clean, yet the whistling continues.
I hear this high pitched whistle as I reach and exceed 35 / 40 mph, the sound remains constant with the fan turned on or off and it does not change as vehicle speeds or engine...
Dirty White Boy
I had been looking for one locally since the first of the year, and all of them were asking over $12K. Well, I didn't want to spend that much before making the desired changes. Anyway, I had basically given up when one popped-up on Craigslist about 75 miles north of me. I was...
