I goo-goned the sticky crap that was left on my heep when someone decided to remove an "offensive" sticker off of her. The persons lucky I didn't catch them touching my baby or there would have been some problems.

Those brakes don't sound safe!

on topic, this weekend i went after all the stupid little things\
-Removed every panel in her but the dash
-lubed every hinge, locking, window slide mechanism
-remounted my rear door speakers so they wouldn't ground out
-put new linkage clips in for the door that would not open (PITA)
-removed the rear gate panel and license plate holder, painted it and rigged it with new screws so it wouldn't rattle (why would they use plastic studs???)
-fixed my power antenna
-ripped out the cargo carpet and bedlined it
-wired driving lights back in where the factory fogs used to be
-started on my cargo area raissed platform storage project
-bought some little lights to mount on the back of my rack for deer cleaning light

Mine was stalling a lot and had a couple of backfires so I changed the spark plugs. Put in Champion RC12LYC .035. The old ones were burned pretty badly; the gap on 3 was .055.

Made a big difference. Went out to my gun club (100 miles RT) with no problems.

I chased down a short to ground. It turned out to be the rear cargo light bulb out of place causing it.

I just picked up some aftermarket housings on eBay for about $35 shipped. I also got some Sylvania Silverstar Ultra bulbs for like $18 shipped on eBay. They're by far the best halogen bulb you can get. They're definitely super bright white. I wanna say they're about 4200 K which is about as white as you can get. I definitely recommend them, but you'll want to shop online for them. They're usually about $50 a pair at any brick and mortar store. I'm pretty sure I posted a pic of the housings a couple of pages ago in this thread after I installed them. The biggest thing with them is you're going to have to pull the clips off the factory housings and use them in the aftermarket ones. The aftermarket ones will have mounting clips, but they suck.
