Nice! I bet that's a good looking truck.

bought shocks, went to install them, and the hardware they came with were junk... so will have to cut them off and replace with real hardware... That's what I get for going cheap.

Super annoyed... I've been working on swapping out my shocks, and every other bolt has been stripped. Worst one is the top mount on the passenger side, I am going to have to drill out the rivets and replace. Not happy at all about that. If anyone has any other suggestions, I would appreciate it.

I'm an idiot, I went through all that work for that shock mount, and it just doesn't feel very secure, so Went to see if I could buy one used, since I didn't think they made them after market... Should have looked first:

New tires tomorrow!

what is it about new tires that is so exciting? I am actually getting 6 total, 4 for my jeep, and two of the tires that were on the jeep are going to my b4000, and getting two new tires.

Jeep will have trail diggers,
b4000 will have a mix, two hercules all tracks and two yokohama geolanders (why? because they were the best price for a brand I knew).

So 6 tires, 9 mounts (third tire for the jeep is being mounted as a spare). $900 out the door. I think that's a reasonable price.

Change of plans, still getting 6 tires, but 2 will be Hercules Terra Trac A/T II and 4 will be Terra Trac T/G MAX tires. Why? because that's what's available today. Looks like the trail diggers are out of stock (probably stopped making them) and the yokohamas wouldn't be available until tomorrow, so they are giving me a deal on the terra track A/T II's.

In your first video you have a code 32 airbag light which means damaged clockspring. With your truck you may also need to replace the RCM as once the airbags go, they are not reusable. Fords had them tied to the VIN, I'm unsure about Mazda. On the pass. side, did they put in a new airbag or a plate from an earlier truck? It would say airbag on it if it was one.

As for the door ding when the drivers door is open and the key is in the ignition, that is normal.

I only made it halfway through your first video so if you address any of these later I have not yet seen that. Sub'd!

What's an RCM?

I will check the clock spring for physical damage, I KNOW my air bags on both sides were blown as it is a salvaged vehicle, and the just taped them back into place. how do I determine air bag codes?



The ding happens when the key is NOT in the ignition. that's why its annoying.

Only thing I've addressed so far is the 4x4 not working and put some shocks on it as the shocks were bad and it was super bouncy. Today I will be replacing the air bags/steering wheel, and hopefully putting in a DD radio.
