Pardon my ignorance, but how can you visually tell a lifter has gone bad? I'm not at all familiar with this 4.7 engine.

Today I went to the coin operated car wash and laid down on the ground and high pressure washed off all of the salt from the bottom of my Jerp.

Your right, misunderstanding after looking at youtube vids, new lifters can be compressed, lifters full of oil wont, therefor assuming, since rocker arms still was in place, and cant find anything Ells wrong, and stetoscop doctor best bet is 99% on cam lifter noise, not valve.

Socket? The bulbs in the CC have no socket. They are soldered directly into the circuit board. Unless I am misunderstanding you.

The dual climate bulbs have no socket, from what I have researched, and are soldered directly into the circuit board.
Thanks, anyway. I still need heated seat LED's and the vanities.

Fixed the check engine light by finally putting on the new O2 sensor, which took several weeks to get due to several people ordering the wrong one. And put on a new battery connector after I broke the factory one trying to tighten up the connections

It sits on a pretty hokey 6" lift. Its still sitting the way it was setup when I got it. I did not trim the back yet because I plan to do a proper 6" suspension before it hits the trails and currently only rubs alittle.

Is that a short arm 6" lift or do you have spacers on top of 4" springs
