Been really busy lately with offloading all of my toys and helping my wife obtain new furniture for the house, but I am excited to dive back into the truck this weekend. I was able to get the coolant flush done, changed the oil with Mobil Delvac 15w40 and mobil 1 oil filter. I noticed my oil pressure is a little bit higher than it was previously... used to idle at just under 30 on on the stock gauge and just under 60 wen cruising, now its over 30 at idle and around 70 when cruising. I found that kind of interesting...



Hoping to replace the air filter, fuel filter, window regulator, reverse lights (Brighter LED's) and buff the headlights this weekend!



One thing I am still stumped on is the switches/buttons near the headlight controls. Can anyone help me identify these and tell what they should be doing when I play with them???

1 turns on/off your interior light for when the door opens
2 is for the light at the back of the cab that shines into the truck bed
3 is the dash/interior lights. It adjusts the brightness with going all the way up will turn on the interior dome light

uhhh ohhh... That dial didn't seem to adjust the gauge lights when I was playing with it last night... Maybe I should check some fuses. I'll play with the other 2 buttons tonight and see if they are working properly.

thanks man!

I've gotta tell you that you have kicked in some great memories.
I didn't graduate to my 2006 LBZ until 2009 when my son's were finishing high school.
We managed to survive with a '99 Ford F150 extended cab with the 4L v8.
Skiing, fishing, backpacking and loving the Rockies.
Yer tugging on my aging memories.
Enjoy and take care, my sayings from back in those days:
I like my truck and car but in the end they are just crates for the important eggs that are inside.
Don't rush your maintenance, it will work out over time with persistence.
Budget some $$ for an unexpected situation and just do things as you can.
The advice I've seen on this forum is great but no need to rush it.
Deal with it as you can, there are preferred priorities and real necessities, Know the difference.
And best of luck to you and yours.

I hope I'm talking about lots of good memories in my LBZ when my kids are finishing school. Its already been a huge lifestyle change and our twins haven't even arrived yet. I just sold our 2 seater RZR last night, even my wife was sad to see it go lol Time to upgrade to a 4 seater for our "eggs" as you call them haha love that!
