lol that's about where i'm at. i'm just gonna disconnect power from the cruise lights, and get the resistor for the blower. but the front end noise has me worried. i also had issues on the drivers side last year which turned out to be the caliper not releasing, so that could be the issue now with the other side. i'm just hoping it's not a bearing

I thought my problem was the calipers and was about to purchase them. But the hose felt weird and a bit too soft. So it was like $15 plus the brake fluid.

No A/C. It sucked driving it today in 100* heat. Both windows rolled down didn't do anything.

Nothing today. 33's are on the way, so things are looking up for it. Now if I can just find an entire day off to do the body lift.

It could be that your latch has moved down a bit. Loosen up a bit the bolts and move it up.
