Ya know what occurred to me a few months ago?

The first link in a thread like this one can be continually edited, and turned into a table of contents.

It can be categorised, and updated constantly! Oh yeah...

YOU CAN ALSO COPY THE PERMALINK for posts that are relevant to each topic (or chapter) and HYPERLINK THE CHAPTERS TO THE EXACT POSTS IN THIS THREAD


Sound like a cool plan?

So this is just for your own truck right? No "PEANUT GALLERY" ?

* I see your links now! This looks like a progressively MORE INTERESTING thread...

*Subscribing

**DAMMIT! I can't rep you again?
If I could I would call it a Technical Cornucopia, and digitally (use of BB Code) fan-freaking-tastic!!!

"Well done!"

You know, I have been looking at all kinds of stuff like this over the years.

Consider yourself "PLAGIARISED"

And I just noted your Brake Controller - sweet!

The brake controller isnt there anymore. I dont use it, so its tucked up under the dash in a void behind the big panel that covers the fuse box.
