Ahhhhhh.........the bliss of youth and young marriage. I can remember when I thought like that, some 30 years ago. Enjoy while you can, eventually she will catch on........................guess that's about when the honeymoon ends, as they say.

I suppose that makes your memory better than mine. (or maybe worse). I wouldn't describe the time it took my wife to catch on as "eventually". Seems like getting away with stuff passed by pretty quick, but at least it got better again when the kid moved out.

that fuse controls the ignition(when it blows it wont start with the key), cruise control quits working, mph gauge goes out and last but not least the od goes blank. replace the fuse and all works again.

That's pretty much what I have to do to get new parts for mine. "If it isn't broke, don't fix it" is my wife's motto. Makes me want to blow up my 2wd trans so I can swap my 4x4 one in sooner. lol

But then I couldn't sell the 2wd one and buy more parts...

221K and LOTS of hours on my 96, probably about 4x a much as it should have, lots of cold weather idling due to having been a loggers truck.
I know of one 96 that I work on regularly that has 232K on the factory auto trans, it primarily is a daily driver with around 5-600 pounds of tools in the bed, but it does see a 32 foot camper now and then.
The stock auto in my truck made it to 141K before it puked and the truck was ZF converted.

Wow, that is strange indeed. won't start and the cruise control doesn't work either. Thanks for explaining it to me, like everyone else, I'm just trying to learn new stuff about our trucks.
Thanks again
