Yesterday I got new brake pads, resurfaced my rotors, new axle seals, repacked bearings, turned rotors, and a tire rotation. Ride seems so much smoother now

Got back from Vaca and got the letter from FORD, "The EDGE" needed an upgrade.

1) Took it to the local Ford Dealer and got the Cruise Control Wiring added with a fuse to stop the defective Cruise/Brake Sw from shorting and causing a fire.
This is only an interim fix, it gets the job done but the problem is still the sw.

All done for now, waiting for the fuse to blow.

2) Added aluminum ***** to the H/AC, the Headlight Sw and the 4x4 Sw.

3) Still wiring up the OHC with switches and the HAM Radio Head Unit, then that will go in.

4) Still looking for the Mustang GT Leather Seats! When I get then am thinking about having the cntr section changed to med grey.

wanted to pull the tails and tailgate then pull the bed off the truck today so i can clean up the frame, but ended up helping my sister's bf do a rear brake/wheel bearing job on an early 90's vw golf.. so nothing happened today.. maybe tomorow, got an appointment at 1pm so well see.

EDIT: got the tails and gate off yesterday, started on the bed bolts.
