Decided on gloss black, got a good dump of snow today so got the cover on in time. Also sourced NOS handle for cover and since I did not know what size struts to put on cover I picked a set out of clearance bin at RV store for $7 each,,a bit short but do the job
Picked up a tonneau cover cheap, clear coat was lifting so I could not resist. Has a few chips and one chunk that need attention but for $60 its fine. Just have to decide on colour as it will be coming from my collection of left overs which is getting slim.
Tonneau cover is just for the winter...
I like them and they are practical
The downside...The chance of driving your head into them when going under truck on creeper. I have a similar single step on drivers side,,,have not hit it yet but its coming.
Got these on Etsy for $66. Fit is okay. We'll see how long they last.
Save yourself a lot of grief by removing seats,(only 4 bolts per) seat side moldings and drivers side seat buckle. Now install covers. Snake the seat belt buckle through hole while seat is out of truck. This will save you...
The ceramic I had would not fit and then after a month it failed. The solder melted so I bought the correct resistor from Rockauto. $15
I think if the resistor fits in housing it’s fine as that cools the resistor,, or so I think
Lots of 4th gear towing the steeper grades. The older 4 cylinders were more fuel efficient than their 6 cylinder counterparts. My only reason for owning a 4x4 is getting my boat in and out of the lakes, we don't have traditional boat launches, usually just a clearing to the waters edge.
I hauled explosives exclusively for 10 years. 2 of our clients were granite quarries in Vermillion Bay On. On one occasion the detonating cord was labelled incorrectly and instead of cracking the rock it broke it all into chunks. A months worth of drilling and thousands of dollars damage...
