That it currently doesn't run because my fuel line is broke from the tank to the filter and I can not get a new one. But on the upside it gave me a reason to pull the bed and order a new filler neck. Also fixed my remote start, we'll half way. It will crank now but it's hooked up to the wrong wire on the ignition and has no spark. Looks like I get to make a new fuel line.

- That the RF steel brake line just broke and has drained all the MC's fluid. Every week it's something else with this old '98 4x4 manual tranny 3.0 beater. Love the old truck when it's running and everything works, which is seldom these days.

PS - Anyone know where to find a preformed RF line? Looks like a real bear to change.

I've been having problems with my 4.0s breaks for over a month

Casey, let us know how you make out with the fuel line, I might have to make one for my 2000 from the tank to the filter to replace the plastic line.

I went to the JY & found a 01 4X4 w/4W ABS & took the line I needed, & yes it was a PITA to snake the line out that I was going to use from the JY Ranger so I did not damage it.

Heard a weird nose when hitting bumps and it sounded real bad. Thankfully I made it home. Took a look around the back and realized my middle leaf spring on the right hand side had snapped and had moved itself and was hitting the shock. It's been broken a long time; there was no fresh metal where it did snap it's all rust. Jacked the truck up and got it back in place at least. Won't be using her unless of emergency. First thing that's broke though for the year I've owned it so I'm not too bitter.

If that's the only rust you've got, you're lucky.

I hate dealing with the vertical water spot going down the cab window, those really piss me off.

I ended up patching the line for now with a patch kit. But it's. Temp fix. I'm going to be pulling the bed and running a rubber line from tank to filter and installing my new filler neck.
