    Cruise buttons again

    Correct, it just may not work, there are only 2 wires to the cruise system coming from the wheel, the servo is just looking for varying resistance to ground from the buttons to be told what to do anyway.

    That would have run inside the cab under the carpet, the front speaker wires on second gen trucks run out the main cab bulkhead to the radiator support then split there and run along the outside of the inner fenders to the doors, it's weird.

    Cruise buttons again

    You can make anything compatible if you want to, I have an 06 steering wheel with it's cruise buttons, airbag, and clock spring, it plugged right into the 98 dash harness and I don't have an airbag light. I've also taken the cruise module and installed it in older stuff and just made my own...

    Daughters 1st Truck

    That 3 wire plug is proving to be elusive, from what I can tell it appears to be a test port as one of the wires could be a tach signal (Tan/Yellow), the other two I cannot find in any diagram that I have access to, at least that make sense as to why they're in the engine compartment. You could...

    The two large black wires on a plug go directly to battery negative.

    Sticking GM parts onto my 4.0 swapped 86 (M62 supercharger install)

    I got around to pulling the supercharger off and doing the valvecover gaskets last weekend, there were no mechanical issues at all, or at least any that I could see. Installed the copper washers under the bolt heads and torqued it all down to spec, it is about as easy to remove as pulling an...

    In the chopped-up bundle on the intake; Orange/yellow goes to the 3/4 shift solenoid, Purple/yellow controls torque converter lockup, and Red feeds power to the other side of both of those solenoids, all 3 of these will not be needed for a manual trans and can be capped off. Red/Light blue and...

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    Made a bracket and installed my ebay oil catch can then checked for vacuum leaks, seems fine, idles at the same rpm, vacuum is good and afr is the same as before, so I think I'm good. Installed just in time to let it sit until the end of March or so...

    My uncle was a mechanical genius

    My father is the son of a small farmer and the work ethic that followed. He spent all of my childhood being the donkey chasing the carrot and decided to part ways with my mother when I was about 11 years old. He has a mechanical aptitude and I seem to have inherited that, I've been a fleet...

    General location of the wires in question would be helpful here. I have some thoughts on what they are but I'd like to be more sure before I tell you. That being said, a quick look at the chopped off wires in a diagram leads me to believe they're all of the wires that would control torque...

    Need some GMRS education

    I believe that's the one I used also.

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    I've worked at the same place for almost 15 years, and lived in 4 different places with a commute of up to 33 miles one way, it's nice finally owning a place that also happens to be close.

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    My commute is too short for the truck to warm up at all really, it's 3.6 miles and takes me 10 minutes if I hit every red light on the way there, it's lame. The 4.0 truck which I don't drive in the winter will cook you out of the cab by the time you're halfway there

    No joke, I had to read a tutorial just to figure out where to go to even start the process.

    Need some GMRS education

    Well, the FCC let me have a GMRS license, what a pain it is navigating that system to get it done though. I've been leaning towards ordering a pair of the gmrspro radios from btech and voiding the warranty with better antennas immediately, haha.
