Im just glad you got the reference. All you need now is a decal of a map on the back glass or tailgate. ๐Ÿ—บ

Well, the donkey has been sitting for several months due to the electrical issue. After working on the fleet the last few days I decided to put it in the shop. Boosted it (both batteries were dead) and it barely turned over when it roared to life!! Just aching to go out I guess๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyway, started looking over the wiring and what the issue could be;

The fuse box wiring is pretty bad and I found where the inner fender is pounded up to give the 35โ€™s room, it is pinching the main cable running from the fuse panel to the computer.
Inside, I pulled the computer and the wires and everything was packed in mud and rocks. I canโ€™t remember how many times Iโ€™ve driven it in water up to my ass on the seat. Which means the computer and all the wiring was under a foot or more of water!

That picture doesnโ€™t do it justice๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Under the white computer hold down strap (top right of picture) it looks like something white on the floor?? Itโ€™s actually a hole into the fender well. All the mud it packed through the hole and filled the wiring harness๐Ÿ˜ณ

more tomorrowโ€ฆ
