Un-boxed a PT105HD, digital POB and played with BTPRO a bit. TN-250 scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

Best of Luck,

Mike

Started troubleshooting an AC system issue. Loss of flow from the vents after 30-40 minutes of it running. Low side pressure is 42lbs at 83F. Need to get a gauge set so I know what the high side is doing. Evap core freezing??

Yes, I was told my ORO that they fixed the problems with previous sets. If these fail as well I will go with something else.

I paid it off a couple days ago and found a great deal on a new rear Bumper, Diff Guards, Power steering pump Guard and Oil Pan Guard. Time to start thinking about Mods and finally purchasing that OME Kit.

This is my third set.

They explained to me that the first gen lights (my first two) had all the circuitry ran between the bolt holes. So no matter how loosely you secured the lights to your jeep it would eventually crack the connections internally. Also people complained that the 1st gen ones didn't have enough distinction between tail light and brake lights.

The new design has the circuitry/connections ran around the outside edge and they changed the light pattern. He said they have had less then 1% of the new ones have issues..
