  1. I feel like this is the perfect choice for my work commute.
  2. I started work again on September 13th. Similar work, making more money than I was, and growth potential. I put money into my savings account for the first time since April 2020 today. Feels good.
  3. That's where mine is too. I'm using an OEM temperature sender and my gauge is verified. I don't think you have anything to worry about. The factory gauge is no more or less trustworthy than any other temp gauge as long as you do three things: - Use an OEM sender for the gauge. I had an aftermarket sender read a needle high one time and haven't trusted anything but OEM sense. - Clean the electrical connection at the sender wire, and make sure the connector fits on the sender firmly. - Cross check the gauge with something else. Infrared thermometers are popular for this.
  4. Hello, The display for that radio is no longer available new, so any parts would have to come from another radio. The display is soldered into the front panel circuit board and can be hard to remove.
  5. Hello, and sorry for the late response. I do not have much direct experience with this model in particular, but in general the radios manufactured by Automatic Radio in Korea are of generally poor quality compared to the ones made by Mitsubishi in Japan or Singapore. It is possible that this one is an exception. It resembles the RX-135 but to my knowledge shares few to no parts. How does the DAB adapter work? More specifics on the one you plan to use would be helpful.
  6. Post a picture of the clock plug. It and its pinout changed frequently.
  7. I think the factory's waterproofing "solution" was to pack the connector full of dielectric grease. Sealant on the connector to firewall mating surface should help. The SEM does look really good. It's an amazingly forgiving product and goes on extremely well. Also, the pdf of the FSM that I sent you has a diagram of how the harness is routed behind the dash that might be helpful when you go to re-install. This is a common problem when pulling the dash on these trucks. It's in the beginning of the wiring diagrams section.
  8. 29 year average for me. 27.5 for the ones I would have absolutely no qualms driving cross-country tomorrow if I had to. Newest vehicle in the family is a 2008.
  9. Sometimes a starter can fail in a way that it cranks, but very slowly. That happened to my original starter. This can very easily be confused with a dying battery. Make sure the large cable leading from the battery to the starter has clean and positive connections at both ends.
  10. The Renix computer requires either a certain RPM or all of the relevant sensors to "check in" for a certain time, I forget which, before it will allow the engine to start. Either way, it's normal. The High Output trucks start a little faster. "neer-neer-neer-neer-VROOM". If it ever takes more than about 3-5 revolutions for the truck to start but it does start eventually, that would point to a fuel pressure retention issue.
  11. The AW4 stopped being available behind the 2.5L engine in 1991 in XJs and MJs.
  12. Gauge cluster is not correct for the year and would have required replacement of the speedometer cable to make work, so this one may have been "optioned up" a bit. Not necessarily a bad thing, but something to know about. The seat fabric, color keyed dash bezel, and radio are all correct for that year though.
  13. Our trucks predate the brake-shifter interlock becoming a common feature by quite a while
