Looks great! Nice work. I painted the Edelbrock heads on my race car. Kinda sly I suppose? I also milled the name off the ends. No one needs to know what is there!

That looks customized. The diamond tread on the corners is unique as I have a similar mat in my '95 truck(that has gone through numerous trucks I've owned). It only covers the 4x8 section, but not...

The turn signal switch disconnects the brake light to make it flash on the side you choose. I would suspect that inop flasher might be part of the problem. Nothing to do with parking lights though....

I would change the springs out. All that extra pressure is not needed and I don't see you running this thing that hard across country.

Make sure the installed height is correct. There are...

You tested both radios out of the truck and neither work now? What brand radios?
Fuse size wouldn't have any cause for radio failure. Lose fuse/fuse panel/corrosion would have issue with power...

Likely no way to change the IVR itself, unless it has a location to adjust it? Small hole with screw head to turn? I'm guessing it was built for a specific voltage and you can't adjust it. Might...

Is the compressor not turning on? Is it getting over pressurized and shutting off?

Most all serpentine water pumps are REVERSE rotation, due to the way the belt runs.
