Fixed my vacuum prob - the only air flow I had from my AC or Heat was through my defrost vents. Found a hose popped off manifold. Re-attached it and everything works like new again!!

It was the hose with the 90° end

The outer parts are 2" Dom, I think bought them in July and just got to doing it. I'll check into that. With the diesel only so much I can do. Going to try a fluidampr when I feel like spending the money.

Thanks for the tip

I have the older Viking version, but I wouldn't ever go back. I love it. The ability to swap to a safari top and the built in window storage is awesome. There's a thread here somewhere with page after page of info.

Man... I forgot how much fun a hi-lift is to use! NOT!!!
Yeah the worst jack for changing tires is a hi-lift. Keep it for recovery purposes only. Get a bottle jack or floor jack.
