Shift into reverse from about 35mph

Anybody ever do it?

In a severe dyslexic moment i did. I'm assuming there is some sort of safety so the entire truck shuts down and stays in Neutral? Kinda freaked me out at the time. When I pulled over almost couldn't stop in time to not hit the parked car since I wasn't expecting the no power brakes..LOL.
Sure as sh!t won't be doing that again!

I want to ...

Also I ordered a G2 diff cover from 4wheelparts. the one I ordered did not have the bearing cap supports. They sent me the one with them. A $50 mistake on their part. I did call them and tell them ...

Cruise Control Cruise Control

So last winter was real bad here in MI, long and cold as hell. I started having issues with the cruise control, after one bitter cold night it wouldn't work if it was below 40 degrees out. It's progressively gotten worse until now when we are starting to hit fall again it won't work if it's below 55 degrees out. So every morning on my way to work I have no CC but on the ...
