    03 compressor issue

    I just started having issues with my AC taking forever to kick on. Recharged it thinking it might be low on fluid but that didn't help. Sometimes it takes minutes before the compressor engages. Once it's on it blows very cold and I can also shut it off and turn it back on while I'm driving. As...

    P1120 tps out of range low

    So 2 nights ago my truck started idling at like 1400 and hangs/jumps to like 2k-2500 between shifts. Got the code so I put in a new bwd tps. Still the same issue. So I replaced the IAC too and that didn't work either. I haven't checked the voltage on the tps yet but I know it's supposed to be...

    Single stage or 2 stage

    I got a new bed for my truck being that the crossmembers and floor rusted out. Big shocker I know. It's the toreador red metallic and still in pretty good shape. My biggest concern is painting the bed to match and having it look way too new or more glossy than the rest of the truck. I'm going to...

I noticed my right rear wheel bearing had a lot of play so I pulled the rear end and the right shaft was all messed up. Installed two new bearings and a new passenger shaft but I...

    torsion twist and soft bars?

    So I recently put new keys in my truck to lift it about 1.75". It doesn't ride terrible but I would like it better. My truck has the medium bars and the keys are backed pretty much all the way off even with the lift. Anyone switch to the soft bars with a 4.0L? How do you like the ride. I figure...
