Said why not, and did new rotors and pads up front, nothing special. Caliper pins were nasty, but cleanable. Differential fluid is solid, AmsOil rocks. On to Wyoming.

damn..my 04 ranger still has the original battery in her from the factory. Has less than half of the original cranking amps left, but still starts on cold morning it has lasted everywhere from nc to ut in all kinds of weather. If motorcraft did anything right its their batterys (at least in 04)

My jeep on the other hand hates its 2 year old battery, but I blame that on the shotty chrysler wiring. That and she is almost officially recognized as a "classic car". She turns 20 here soon she is still young!!

Coolant System

Does anyone have any recommendations on the best way to burp the Coolant system on the 5.2. I did my heater core yesterday... it Seems that i still have at least a half gallon to get back into it.

On flat ground or a hill (front end up the hill), pull the rad cap, start it and let it run until it's warm, give it another minute or 2, then hold it at 2k rpm for about 30 seconds. Add coolant if needed, make sure the overflow bottle is full enough, cap it, shut it down and let it cool. Once it cools, you'll probably have to re-fill the overflow bottle.

These systems self-bleed pretty well, so if there's any little bit of air this doesn't get, it'll burp them out over the next few drive cycles (which you'll notice as the overflow bottle level dropping a little).

Thanks! I still have about 50 screws to put back and the center console. Then on to burping.

While I had the dash out I also ran an 18-6FPLP from the PDC to the center console for future relay control. I'm going to mount a switch for the Overhead spots, still not sure if I'll put them on for the trip to Michigan or not. I still have to do both diffs, re bleed my steering box since I changed the high pressure line yesterday, and finish repairing the rear wiper...

Never a fun job! I always thought the FSM should identify the "slam block" as a required special tool. There is no other way to do it!

Am I remembering properly, did you say you needed a 242 bezel?
