  1. No, I bought a billet tilt GM style. The steering wheel, column, joints and shaft cost more than the Explorer! Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  2. I am getting back to the 48 finally. When we left off the cab was off. I got the cab sat on the frame again. Once the cab was back on the frame I chopped up the Explorer radiator support. Then fitted the front end on I then set off to install the brake pedal, booster, gas pedal and throttle cable. It rained for a few days so I started the process of building my firewall harness. When the weather broke I mocked up the running board location. I also got my rear tire size figured out and fit checked. With the truck being all wheel I ha

    It's not a simple swap. It looks good on paper but is very expensive because of the Hesco crank trigger and new ECM. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk

    My abused transmission says otherwise. The PO overheated the trans because several times because he didn't know how to use the OD switch. I had the stock cooler fail 8 months ago and this is the third time flushing the trans. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk

    Unless you have abused your body for 25+ years as a Marine and and your knees are shot... Autos are popular for other reasons besides people not knowing how to drive a manual transmission. I had sticks all my life. I don't have the desire to feel my knee grind and pop every time I have to shift. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  7. Sherptek makes a bed for a truck camper. It is really expensive though. Somewhere around $25k for the bed. I decided against the 4500 when I stumbled on an amazing deal on my 3500. We finally decided on a Eagle Cap 1200. With the current situation campers are bringing a premium and dealers are asking crazy prices for them. Once things get back to normal I'm sure the market will be full on new campers people lost interest in when they can go on vacation again. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk

    Swapping a manual isn't easy. You will need a new harness and PCM to do it. These new Jeeps are much more advanced than the older ones. The 42RLE gets a bad wrap. It is a very solid trans. The biggest issue with them is heat. People slap big tires on them and don't regear. They overheat the trans and blame it. Don't shy away from a clean auto because of the lies being spit out about them. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk

    I love my TJ Unlimited. The PCM can be troublesome and cause issues with shifting and CELs. There is also the OPDA issue that will wipe out a cam in no time flat. All in all they are great Jeeps. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  10. Slit the pipe, use a band clamp. It will not leak and will come apart. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  11. Did you slit the pipe like I suggested? Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  12. No worries. Everyone calls me by my name Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  13. Buy a donor that has it and pull it all and the wiring. Unless you want to go with aftermarket but it will cost you at least $600 Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  14. I made my own rear extension out of 2x3 rectangular steel tube. Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
  15. Mid 90s S10 works very well Sent from my moto g power using Tapatalk
