Astro, I thought the tire carrier would be a good idea, but I kinda heat it out there, my biggest problem with it is my 16" tire is too big for the back door, It hits the tail light and only opens part way. as for the pop outs way easy to put in, i was kinda freaking out cus I had to drill holes lol

Lee, are you doing the work yourself or having someone do it? I need to put in two sending units. Have them here but the quotes to do the work seem over the top.

I bought another all weather, rubber backed 3'x5' carpet at Home Depot. I cut it to fit nicely around my captain's chair bases. It is pretty easy to remove and clean. It also works well at keeping spills from getting into the seams of my wood laminate floor.

I am going to power wash my older one and cut it to fit around the drivers seat and doghouse.

Also Bought some electrical goodies for the plan to move my Solar charge controller closer to the batteries, over thicker cabling.

My friend and I are doing it. Its not too bad....empty the tank...disconnect the filler hose and overflow hose, disconnect the fuel line and the hose to the rollover valve....loosen the two bolts on the straps and drop it out!!!
Just frustrated because I have an issue I can't track down yet that even with the new unit it still reads empty. You have two tanks?

Just went out and opened all the windows to air the stink of the previous owner out. Sprayed vanilla Febreeze everywhere. Finished packing the shower turned closet with important belongings I want to take with me when the sheriff finally comes to kick me out of my house. Currently contemplating whether I'm going to undertake doing an oil change and looking for someplace that can repair/ replace the screen I had to bust the other day when I locked myself out of the darned thing.

Made some progress removing the 3M undercoating (asphalt based) i used in my drivers side rear wheel well...That stuffs a mess! I used a ton of wd40, a putty knife and a pressure washer, its 90% gone now..Im almost ready to do the POR treatment.

Pulled the codes and everything checked out ok but the fuel pump is still on the way out. Gonna change that in a few days.
