1. Inexpensive
2. Not as inexpensive
3. Thick wallet going on a diet.
4. Cheap. Not the seat - you.

That it is going to need a new paint job soon. The paint on the hood is beginning to oxidize .

PM sent .. I have serpentine belts for my old 3.0, one for AC and one without.

What section of parking cable is snapped? I just had a new one put on my old truck before it was totaled.

Also have a 60/40 seat I am looking to get rid of. Not sure where you are located but I am in NJ

you have a fuse out. It's a 20 amp fuse in the In cab fuse box. It works with the cigarette lighter. Replace fuse. Read code. Fix problem. Sit in chair. Relax. Day complete

I still blow mine every now an then. The UltraGauge is sweet. You can change the settings on it to make it look like your truck makes 400 foot pounds of torque! Lol
