    As a matter of fact, this is worthy of 'Stickyness'. I'm moving this to the 'Tech' thread and it will always be at the top.

    Very important info for all of our gas powered truck owners.

    I haven't done mine yet I know shame on me, they keep demanding I bring the vehicles in and I have so many ford trucks I just don't have time to be doing that. I just want them to hand me the dang harness piece and I can install it perfectly fine on my own.

    They should just load up a few mechanics and 10 or so upgrade parts and head out to your truck sanctuary and fix them all right there. Might be easier than trying to schedule you in 10 times in the week.

    I love how heatmiser got back to Audra in 1 year and 1 day. I was looking at the posting dates and it made me do a double take, lol!

    Definitely the show truck. It is the only one I truly cannot replace, do not want to take to a dealer, and would never let anyone else screw with or potentially damage. I received the package yesterday from Heatmiser!!!!!

    Thank you so much you guys. YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!
