1/ There's no ground inside the column for the lights. Power goes to the signal bulbs then to ground to turn them on. Could be worn or need cleaning the dust and dirt out. Maybe remove and flush with electrical contact cleaner.

So pull all turn signal bulbs, check and clean all contacts?  Just seem weird how it works one day and maybe not the next.  It almost feels like it was something physical in the column.  Thanks.

 

3/ As long as when driving the engine does not rev up when climbing hills it's not slipping and good enough for now.

No hills in Florida...will have to find a tall bridge!!  Luckily we have one or two around.

 

I will definitely use your advice on the other two items as well, when I get some time.  I'll keep you updated.  Thanks Mike!

A/C, but no power steering. Is that what I see in the pic? Looks straight and solid to me. Nice find. The thing I appreciate most about rehabbing this model and this brand is that it is still feasible to find clean and reasonably priced examples that just need a little TLC and a few bucks to bring you a good return, in terms of service.

 

Nice seats!

Yes AC, which works very well BTW, but no power steering.  I thought that a little odd myself.

Ouch.  He had made references to putting spindles on it and such.

i know this is an old thread and you have moved on to another truck, but what were the specs of your suspension and tires in the last few photos?  The truck sat great in those pictures and I love the 17" titans.  Thanks.

Could you give me your drop specifics?  Also did you modify those wheels to fit the hub or did you use spacers?
