Got a lot accomplished today!
4wd works now!!!
Shimming the shift fork worked perfectly! No extra vibes from the drive shaft either. I don't need 4wd much (other than this coming weekend), but it is nice to know it will work when I do need it. Forgot to take any pictures, but it is a stupid-proof mod.
After that I changed the oil. It was well past 3000 miles so I wanted to get it done before taking a road trip in it.
Goofed around with the cruise control some. Couldn't find anything wrong with it. Played around with the controls after testing the 4wd and finally figured out the magic combination that gets it to work! Cruise is definitely going to be nice.
A couple weeks ago i ordered replacement b pillar interior lights. Finally got around to installing them. Well worth it, only took half an hour. I was pretty peeved that they are called factory replacements but don't use the stock plugins, but it was nothing I couldn't handle. Just wasn't as simple a swap as I assumed it would be. Still really happy to have interior lights now!
