Cleaned up my interior today, added the second sun visor to the passenger side, apparently I never grabbed the clip for the driver side from the junkyard or I just lost it I'm not sure. Loaded my tool box with all my winter gear, jumper cables, extension cords for plugging in at night/work, blankets and boots etc. Also been thinking about just getting actual winter tires next fall and some pro comp series series 97 rims, it would be nice having the maximum traction possible and safety plus save my rims that I still really love. Doesn't seem like there is a lot of options for 31s in a winter tire but I've seen a few, any advice on what to get would be nice

Hvac came in last night, one of the bulbs is burnt out and sadly I didn't think that ford/mazda used different bulbs over the years so my 2 of leds coming in won't work for this, my bad

Got leds in my hvac, they're insanely bright, also finally have lights for my headlight switch and third brake light, the new problem is after swapping my clustor bulbs its insanely dark, the only spot with even decent at best is by the 20mph and 110mph(inner speedo because canada eh), also my left turn signal light won't come on(switched lights multiple times) and my dimmer dial has almost zero effect now so any help would be nice

It's weird that it worked in the HVAC but not in the gauge cluster

Ok guys nothing new as we speak, just did an oil change over the weekend but very soon some big things are happening but first I have a few questions, last weekend I went to a junkyard and there was a pair of full power leather mountaineer seats in great shape, I plan on going back on Thursday for it and a full length console but I want to be sure the seats can be done, I know for explorer seats in reg cab you need 93-97 rails from an extended cab ranger but because these are power how would that work? Or am I getting into some really custom fab now? I have a friend good with electrical stuff some in not concerned about wiring just the rails and actually mounting them

Also 90% sure I'm getting a cap, and depending how much that that compresses on my suspension will determine if I'm going to do an aal or blocks later on, my leafs are already pretty flat I noticed

4" Spindles will be ordered hopefully in the next 1-2 weeks and picking up a pioneer double din from a co worker as soon as I go back to work

Sadly not, either a 31 or 33, and with 33's I'd need to regear and do a body lift. Those Cooper st pros come in a 32

Couple of updates

Got to go off roading on Friday, really fun but also frustrating, surprising I never got stuck but boy do I appreciate how narrow my truck is, had to squeeze between some trees while not sliding in and our of huge ruts, even had to fold in my mirrors then tow out some trees after I made it through so the big trucks could sorta fit

Only picture I got of the tight section, yes the 4wd Dakota was stuck and yes I made it through fairly easy :D We never could fit the Chevy through(2wd open diff also)


Also picked up a cap this weekend, already love the look it gave the truck besides the squat :( Guess I'm doing an aal lift instead of blocks


Haven't got around to mounting the rails yet but threw them up for a picture

These also showed up, waiting on spindles which should be here today or tomorrow, then figure out if my order at summit for rear shocks went through
