No, I don't have a big *** crescent wrench, either ... So far so good though, I'll shove the axle shaft back in for now so it doesn't collect too much dirt, should get it finished up and brakes bled tomorrow.

Got the taillights swapped out about 2 weeks ago, and finally got my Kolak exhaust (Flowmaster 50 SUV) welded on last weekend. Sounds AWESOME now!

Here's a pic from last weekend:



Still need to do something about that third brakelight, maybe just some plastidip shade to black it out a bit...

VERY NICE MAN!!!

That's the stance I'm goin for as well, looks great.

My 4.0 came factory with both....

Replace both CV axle shafts due to torn boots. Funny how its only 20$ more to replace the whole shaft rather just the boots, after you turn in the core charge at napa.

Well im kind of really pissed off... putting in the switch was simple, took all of 5 min. Only to discover that my wipers still dont work! The spray works both front and rear, but none of the blades move. Now what? I replaced the wiper motor and the linkage its hooked up to, and now my switch, both front and rear wipers dont work...

How do I check the relays? I know the fuses are good, bu you can just look at the relay and see like a fuse


So I noticed they all have the same numbers on them so I took 2 I knew worked starter and o2 sensor and swapped them in place of the 2 wiper relays, and they still dont work.

energize the coil with a batt (fuse the power lead, 20A will be fine) and listen to see if the switch side closes. Google search for a "relay pin out"
IRC the coil pins are usually 85,86.

I watched a few videos and read some things, but in more then one they said you can swap another relay to check. I swapped the starter and o2 sensor relays (since my car starts fine and the o2 sensor works) in the wiper relays, and still a no go.

Than go straight to the motor and check for power, and work backwards.

Pin 5 on the harness should be a BR/WT wire and should have power with wipers on LO. Pin 6 RD/YL wire should have power with wipers on HI.

If not than back up to the control side of the relay, and investigate what controls the coil side of the relay, make sure one side of coil goes to ground and other side goes hi.

C1 is a connector indicator.......... (BCM connector)

BUT the breaker you speak of is within the "junction block" and can be tested for power at pin 9 of "C2" which is the junction block connector.
