Have you checked to make sure the door is moving with the controls and not just by hand? A very common issue is a lack of vacuum to the heater door motor due to a cracked vacuum line to the system....

The almost stalling/erratic idle could be the IAC valve. May be just a dirty connector, but probably just a worn out part.

I've used the BFG ATs on several trucks over the years, and they are the best compromise between a dedicated snow tire and a reasonably aggressive on/off road tire I have tried. Most sizes are...

Nice, and you can't even look through the rear fender arches!

We purchased a GN 34' enclosed trailer in preparation for our next move. When we moved out here from New England, it cost over $8k, and I still had to move most of my tools separately. That was 11...

Seems pricey for the miles and overall condition. Betting the bed has been painted, check the rear wheel arches for signs of repair.

That's '97 PS money around here. Nice truck, but that's a boatload of cash. And I have to wonder if there is any rust over the rear arches, as that's common even out here on 20 year old trucks now.

Please keep in mind I am not in any way recommending this, but it speaks to the OBSs capabilities.

Why is that? The trailer was rated for 12k payload, we had 11,900 on it. It was my truck that was being put to the test.

Even a replacement IDI should be available for relatively little, so if the rest of the truck is good, even if the motor has serious issues it may still be a good deal.

Oops...A little overloaded!

We removed a chimney from our house and rented a gooseneck dump trailer to haul away all the block, brick and mortar. I started to worry that we would run out of room (the trailer had 4' sides, 14'...

12.5 MPG with 4:10s? I wouldn't try to modify anything as that's about as good as it gets. Heck my '94 Bronco with a 351 and 3:55s averaged right around 15 during the three years we had it. I know...
