Re: Important

Wife, baby, and I went back up to WI this Saturday, this time to Two Rivers to see her other Gpa(last weekend was Lake Geneva to see her Gpa)
Good times up there. I always like staying here. This is the view from the room he puts us in



Wife and baby are staying until wed and coming home with her dad. I can count on one hand the amount of times I have been alone for more than a few hours. So this should be a interesting couple of days.

I had a very liberating drive home yesterday afternoon. was able to turn the radio way up, listening to whatever I wanted, all while aggressively weaving in and out of traffic in my red sports car! drover threw hard rain, light rain, fog, shade and sunshine. good trip

cannot come home frmo WI without a trip to Mars cheese castle


Will have to see how long before I miss the wife and baby...

Well I got $58 of bilstein parts coming.. Hope this gets the back end sorted out otherwise I'm switching shocks. $58 is insane for some shims and two shaft bumps.

I've fund that all commercial wiring leaves something to be desired, and I have pretty low standards for wiring.

But

They had A LOT of thick cut bacon as soon as I was up.


Going back to WI this coming weekend. This time to Two Rivers to see her other grandpa. We may make our way up to Door County. Not to sure yet what he has planned, but I know he loves it up there.


its all good tho, her Gpa had a whole day planned then I had to get home yesterday. shit, I was doing 85 most of the trip home.

except for the traffic on 94.

my new phone is gangsta tho, it before i approached traffic it told me to get off and take some frontage road. i was flying passed all the stopped traffic on 94 lol

Re: Important

L.e.d. taillights just wont work, I think the tow ready box is bad I have quadruple checked all connections and everything works except for the brake only flickers briefly. Started a thread about it in Mod tech but I may just rip it all out and try to wire it from the stock trailer wiring and throw out the "tow ready" converter.

What a Pita this has been.

Do you have the polarity correct on the lights?

Re: Important

I replaced one of the 3-2 converters recently.

Checked the inputs to it, brakes worked, signals did not. Just a bad box.

Re: Important

Mine went bad after Moab(probably when the turn signals quit because of a short), while I was wiring the LED's on the trailer I found that out. Replace it, they are cheap on Amazon.

That should net your asking price. I was willing to overlook the rusty cab corners and rear fenders on my truck since it was a CCLB 7.3L for $7k. If it were prettier he could have asked a lot more.

I think so I used a tester that lights up if you touch it to a hot wire. I used this and the colors to identify the hot wires. power goes into the box at the Stop input to box but only briefly comes out to the Left and right stop/turn wires. On the 3 way light itself it has a white wire that is labeled ground, a black wire that is labeled as the tail and a red that is labeled stop/turn.. It all seems so simple but just doesn't work.

So maybe the box is bad which sucks because I cut the wires to extend to the other side and wont get a refund. Not that it was that much but still a little annoying it would be nice to get my car back legal since my truck is down. Looks like Nate is willing to walk me through some troubleshooting over the phone tonight so things are looking up.
