I can see that the coolant overflow hose is always wet and dripping with coolant when I wheel it too.
mine does the same thing if i drive for more than an hour its not enough for me to really care though

They should be equivalent, assuming it's a 2 speed Taurus fan. The 5.9 fan is basically the Taurus fan in a slightly different shroud.

Then I pondered how I'm gonna do these discos. And I was looking at that chart again, and 1/2in is 1mm bigger than 12mm. Sooo I might grab some 1/2in bolts. And make that work.
1/2" is .7mm bigger than 12mm. This puts 13mm sockets in tolerance for 1/2" bolts (especially if rust is a factor) and 1/2" sockets in tolerance for 12mm bolts. (again especially for rust)

That's a helluva note. That said, I got in touch with mom and she doesn't have the fan anymore. Got rid of it when her kind-of-husband came back. (It's a long story I'd rather not explain) I'll PM you.

Should be good now. Didn't realize my JF subscription had expired and shrunken my mailbox on me.

hit the j-yard yesterday and grabbed a non-power antenna setup and rear door latches. pulling the antenna base from the zj in the yard was no big deal, however when i attempted to get my broken powered unit out, that was quite the ordeal. ended up having to pull the fender to get that wire/grommet loose from the body as it is a LOT stiffer than the grommet that is used on the non-powered antenna wire. after that i swapped out the rear door latches; yay no more bouncing open doors when i try to close them in sub 50* temps. parked it out front only to find the l/r latch locking motor was stripped out and woulnt lock/unlock the door. grrrr!! took my original latch and cleaned it up as best able and lubed it up and put it back in. for now, everything seems to be working OK.

now if i could just figure out why the alarm system will not disarm when unlocking at the drivers door. this has been an issue since i bought it, works fine if unlocking from the pass door or the hatch...

Oh boy, if Shelton looks that bad, I don't even want to think about how much snow my parts ZJ is buried under. Hopefully it melts down a good bit before I get home in 2 weeks, otherwise I won't be able to try to get rid of it until summer.

I got a phone call last night from of my buddies. He managed to get his bone stock Sierra stuck. When I got there, he was buried up to the frame in mud. I somehow pulled him out and got out of there myself. I was pretty positive I was going to get stuck backing up to exit the trail but I made it. It was fun but I hate mud. Now I have to spend $10 in quarters power washing my undercarriage again.

I have the same issue, pretty sure its the lock cylinder in the doors cuz my pass. Door is starting to work less and less. I gotta turn it to locked then back to unlocked a cpl times while watching the flashing light. Sometimes it gets me though on a bright day and I look like a fool messing with the door, I'm jus getting another key fob and not messing with it anymore.

It's easier than one expects to frame a GMC. They just dig in immediately. I try to keep mine away from mud. (especially because it's 2WD)

Skinny pedal plus the weight of a full size truck equals sinking the truck in mud. I'm pretty sure he had it in 4 hi and was just sitting there spinning the wheels, digging down farther and farther. When I finally got to him, I had to have him dig out his hitch. He got stuck again on the way out and I had to tell him to keep turning the wheel back and forth. He also kept losing momentum because as soon as the truck would start to move, he'd let off the gas. He really had no business being back there. I really felt I had no business being back there, but I managed.
