FWIW, I bought a poorly maintained truck w/ lockers (partially intentionally, partially not). In retrospect I very much wish I had gotten a well maintained truck, and added a rear locker in later. I think you made a good decision (I paid only a few hundred less for mine 2 years ago) Ended up needing radiator, head gasket, brake overhaul, electrical work, front axle overhaul, tires, etc.

Hey Dan. Saw you and John on Ali's photobucket site as the engine was being pulled back in 2009. Makes me nervous to see John near the engine, you know, with all the bad luck he has with engines. But I think all will be ok.

Thanks Corbet. And thanks for talking the other day.

The seller installed the switch but did not do the 7 pin mod. From reading the FAQ on MUD, installing the switch only allows the user to turn ON the CDL in 4HI. CDL is always on in 4LOW. I looked at the HowTo on Slee and it looks overly simple to pull Pin 7. I will definitely do this.

But.... I offset it. Engines seem to like me.

When Ash was putting it back together he was futzing with it for a solid day trying to get the fuel line banjo bolt back in. He got tired of messing with it and called me to at least curse at it or something. 5 minutes after I pulled into the driveway it was done.
