I now have tons of ownership questions that I'm hoping people can help with. The first set is just the stuff to buy, and have on hand. I like getting stuff from Amazon, and I usually buy in pairs so I can always have one on the shelf.
- Best type of oil?
- Gearbox, diffs?
- Air filter?
- Brake fluid?
- Diff lock fluid?
- Other tune-up stuff?
I think I have it figured out from looking at videos, but I want to make sure I'm locking the diffs correctly, and the low range operation as well.
Is there a good aftermarket version of brakes and pads, or should I just stick with original?
Specific to issues with this truck:
- The driver's door light switch (for dome light) seems to be inoperative. Is this a simple pop-it-out-and-change-it job?
- There are several dash lights not working behind various switches, and the HVAC controls. Best way to pull panel off and repair?
- Headliner is sagging a bit in the rear. Is there any fix, or is this something that simply needs to be replaced once it gets bad enough?
- The AC is not working. Now, in the past, when I've had AC units go out, turning the system on does SOMETHING. Relays click, a fan turns on, the clutch is heard. But in this case, NOTHING. Where would you start to begin diagnosis?
