You have to pour it in slowly or I've heard you can hydro lock your engine, I pint 1/3 of a pint on mine thru the brake booster vac hose.

Thanks! Not extremely experienced with mechanical work but this seems easy enough! 👍

No I actually had the option to get a slider but I figured I'd try this one out. It was only 35 bucks so if later on I change my mind I will just buy another

you may not if your back windows open but the sliders are nice... i started with a solid and broke it, then got a slider.... if i broke that.. i would wait until i found another slider... prob at least a month before i got another solid window.

My water pump went out thankfully right after my drive home from Arizona and not while I was in the middle of nowhere. Put a new one in today and picked up my spindles for it as well.

It was surprisingly cheap about 35$ since everything else on this truck seems to be retarded expensive compared to my 3.0, it was definitely a mess but the hardest part was getting it off cause it was practically welded on. It probably took an hour just to get the stupid thing off!
