That's really hard when you're in high school and your truck keeps costing more to fix than you make at your part time job.

I've just about had it with this truck.
that to me sounds like an issue with the brake deactivation switch

Look on the master cylinder. If you see a harness with two fuses on it the recall is done

Brake master cylinder where you put brake fluid in at. Drivers side of the engine bay. Its bolted to the brake booster which is bolted to the firewall.

Default Re: Bitzy's "Build"

Had the truck washed and removing all the grime from winter revealed what looks like to be that someone keyed my truck. The whole drivers side is now covered in scratches along with them keying "IN" twice in my brush guard (which has already started to rust). Upon further inspection of my truck, the end gate is now rusting on the bottom and has started bubbling.

It just keeps getting better and better.
