    well, I think I may have figured out what is causing my shuddering. One of my rear lift blocks is installed backwards, small end towards the rear.

    that would also explain why my rear is out of alignment. :thumbsup:

    I’ve owned the truck for a couple of months now and finally finished changing all the fluids. Did power steering and coolant today. A small milestone...

    Steering wheel controls are the only modern feature I wish my truck had. Really curious to see how that will work.

    I tried to program the garage door opener. I get the signal received and paired icon, but when I test it nothing happens. Dunno if the truck is too old to send the right signal or something. Oh well. The upside is I annoyed the hell out of The Woman with the garage door going up and down for 15 minutes. :D

    New here...

    Between yesterday and today I put in a new Koyo wheel bearing, and while the knuckle was off threw in a new OEM UBJ and LBJ. Just need to do the ball joints on the driver's side now.

    Thanks to all, the info here made the job a breeze.

    How new is your door opener? I had to install a repeater to get my homelink in the other cars to work. New door openers use some different kinda signal than the older ones

    I wasn't very clear. I believe it will work. I'm curious HOW it works. Curious how it mounts to the steering wheel.

    I'm assuming it was installed when the house was built, so no older than 6 years. What repeater did you get?

    He's got a 2006 Limited, probably already in the wheel like mine

    They came with non-functional steering wheel controls?

    Maybe tomorrow I'll tackle the radio, back up cam and mic installation. Or at least install my new headlights and align em..maybe.

    No, he's installing an aftermarket radio. The adapter allows the steering wheel controls to control the aftermarket radio.

    I'm prepping my 03 access cab for sale soon too, have an 06 double cab waiting on a few repairs to become my daily.

    I love the a/c size, but the half doors suck, especially in a parking lot trying to get kids in/out. Looking forward to my 06, with that sweet roll down rear window too!

    anyone remember how I can get my rear roll down window to NOT stop 2/3 of the way when rolling it up? Isn't there some plug I unplug?

    Remove the rear panel and there’s a plug on the passenger side half way down the window slides. Disconnect plug.

    Replaced the T5 bulb in the ignition switch with a red LED one to change it up. Went to change the bulb in the lower driver’s side kick panel with a white one however the plastic pieces inside come in more and doesn’t allow the bulb to plug right in. I’ll have to disconnect the battery and try to push the plastic back somehow when I have more time.

    Also tried to switch the bulbs within the instrument cluster. Removed the cluster to discover that they are not as easy as the center (below the stereo) bulbs to access and I’m way over my head on that one. Stopped there and re-assembled until I do more research. I was hoping to put in red bulbs for P and R, and the rest white.

    Exactly!
    I have my '03 Access cab listed locally for the exact reasons. I thought the 1/2 doors would be exactly what I need day to day, but I find I actually HATE them. Once it goes it will be replaced with a 4 door w/ magic window.

    Been driving with my rear center 1/3 window slid open - so nice. Hope the whole rear window open will be as nice.
    Anyone want to barter? :)
