    You and me both. Tired of reaching in the sunglass holder to open/close garage.

    So adding another fan to the radiator helps keep the engine cooler when hauling a heavy load?

    I’m more about AC cooling. But I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt with hauling too. I’ll have to do a trip up my mountain and see.

    Plus high school kids don't care about washing out sponges and end up marbling the finish on our vehicles. It's not their car/truck, why worry about it? Grrrr

    I got my parts in to replace LCA and steering rack, and now I just have to wait for a window when I can dig in and get all the repairs done. Might be a couple weeks.
    @shifty` I know you had issues with how your packages were delivered with your suspension, but this might one-up on that.

    The first one is how it arrived, apparently the driver did not understand that the arrows should point up. Then once I lifted it up, you can see why it was on its side.

    If you have any questions when you do your rack, let me know, I recently did mine, not the most enjoyable experience

    Putting aside they look comparable, I think the price is justified since @FrenchToasty fan is the “tornado” version, so it must be better, right? o_O

    Holy shit. Yeah, that looks about like what FedEx did to my 130A alternator from RockAuto. Are you missing anything from your box?

    BTW, that looks like packing fail than anything. My suspension f-up recently was purely warehouse/packaging fail.

    That said, who'd you order it from?

    I have another derale fan on my garage as an exhaust that runs off my solar bank, it’s been running 12hrs a day for almost 3 years now. Often with voltages below 11. They seem to be pretty quality

    Did you do before/after height measurements?

    Kinda got me interested.

    Flex-a-lite makes some that are reusable.

    I still need to wire my A/C fan too.

    I saw that pic. Looks nice.

    You should go back to a stock grill and send me that one.



    Makes me miss @Darkness tho.

    Two days and ~ 40 miles after replacing my fuel pump (Denso) I've started throwing a P0031 code (O2 sensor). Coincidence? Probably. I can't see any correlation between the two. Has anyone else seen this or similar anomalies after a fuel pump change?

    Could just be coincidence, never personally had it happen on any of my vehicles. But I'd swap both O2 on driver's side just to be safe.

    If your fuel pressure was a hair low before, maybe it was masking an issue with the O2 sensor?

    Yeah, I already ordered them both. I replaced the rears earlier this year when I did exhaust work. The fronts were inevitable...although I've been procrastinating since they're such a bitch to wrestle out of there. Still an odd coincidence. I won't obsess about it unless it persists after I install the new sensors.
