Thats a switch for aux lighting. If you pull down the console theres a wire behind it. You can wire up LEDs, strobes, lightbar etc right in to it. The wire is fused for 30a.

I would assume its an option across the board but i know it was included in the snow plow prep package to simplify running any amber beacons etc

Looks Good.

Did you have to remove the cross member to install it? Would love to get one but I heard this has to be done to get it to fit.

Yep. Can’t do it without removing that bar. Crossmember bolts weren’t hard at all. But that bar is wedged into the frame so had to use a pry-bar to bump the bar out and a rubber mallet to get it back in place.

Honestly, the whole thing wasn’t bad at all except that I chose to work around the transmission lines rather than remove them. A little aggravating but still doable.

Do you have to remove the torsion bars? Or do those stay in place after you unbolt these?

Nope. Just the 4 bolts and the bar right under the oil pan.

There is, however, one bolt where the transmission bolts to the engine that you have to back out about a half-inch to get to one of the oil pan bolts and to get the oil pan out and new one in. I cut about 3/8” off the end of that bolt to create permanent clearance when tightened back down.

Go South. When you find the guy selling Tacos, you're there.

I recommend the Tripas Pastor, but that's just me.

Gotcha. Well not so easy on my truck beings I have a Superlift. Don’t think I will even attempt this for a new oil pan.

With the superlift, it looks like you have enough room to remove the pan. The only thing sticking down into that section of pan is the pickup. Back when I had to pull the pan on the 04, the chemical sealant used made the pan almost impossible to remove and I ended up bending the lip on the pan (I did bend it back into shape and it sealed) to get it off of there.

Battery light stayed on after start, would stay lit until right at 2000 rpm. Tested batteries, good. Bad juice machine.

The new alternator is 130 amp instead of the 105. Thought, "Why not? Capacity can't hurt" Of course then I needed a new belt for $49.99.... Duuuhhhhh. Three different stores until I found a NAPA branded one the right size. 611123 instead of the 611115.

Did have to grind the bolt tab faces just a bit to fit...

Anybody used Mcquay-Norris tie rods? Rock Auto has a wholesale closeout on the inners for Cheap! $4.84 for the es4645e extreme. Cross check prices I only find a few but for $31 and $68 for the extreme. Anything I find on other forums is 10 to 15 years old...

Thanks

It has been a long time. Hope you had a good summer of boating on the Chain. Very easy. No tools needed. You push them longitudinal to the line then transversley. You don't need a screwdriver. That could be why people break them. Make sure you blow out the Fleece adapter to make sure all mill shavings are out before you install.
Hey B, before installing the Donaldson filter, did you use the flat rubber washer that came with the filter? The Fleece instructions don't mention or show this. Also, since the small rubber o-ring on bottom of the water-in-fuel stem isn't needed, did you remove it? The Fleece kit comes with a large o-ring that goes on the aluminum housing and a small one for the top of the stem. I'll get this thing installed one of these days. TIA
