No I haven't, just assumed one would not be available. I'll check it out, thanks.

As far as the resistor, what do you expect? It's a stealership only item, so they can charge whatever they want.

some parts houses say some items are dealer only but others can get them.

over the last few days i replaced the alternator and battery, i also removed the 'snorkel' from the factory air box, and I added zip ties as spacers to the accelerator cable. I am gonna clean the maf and throttle body tomorrow.

Removed the fog lamps since both were blown. Thinking about using one or both as reverse lights..

Gonna fix the dent on my front bumper and then paint both bumpers. I don't know if I should keep the gray or go with the red or black look.

not a bad price man! For something that 'doesnt do much' 45 aint a bad price. the real thing is what you want and what makes you and your truck happy- and doesnt do damage to either of you aside fromm a few busted knuckles...


I did remove and clean the throttle body, maf ,Iac, and whatever that little sensor in the intake hose is...

not running to badly. sounds a little nicer, even if i am the only one to notice.

Finally changed the tensioner for the serpentine belt, changed the alternator (no more battery light), and the power steering pump. The new one still whines but not as bad as the old one and there is no play in the pulley shaft. I'll wait to see if there is still air in the system causing the whine.

BTW, what do you all use for power steering fluid? Mec/Dex or Mercon V?

Edit: Oh, and I replaced a blower motor resistor and installed a new pig tail so that my fan works now (the old one was trashed). It got corroded and some water in it an one of the leads melted the plastic and almost caught fire.
