Why did I know it was coming...though it is commonly expressed from the family that Dad has stupidity traits, so nice to see it so rapidly posted here. But this is the kick in the bum I needed - replace the fire ext. which someone stole (again). The price to pay to run the truck topless from April to November

Even if you have to arrange to have the local dealer to do it- cheap by comparison. Then switch to ECR when home, or have them sent to said dealer...... As Mike said-"...just have it done." Or, convert to diesel :-)
LOL. I only need one flaming mess. 94 or 95 required and white preferred.

Since we are talking oil lines here, what do 97'ers do? Is there a kit now?
I put those heat sleeves from Jeg's on new factory lines last year on both of mine.

Call Eric at Trailhead 4x4. He's got the 97 kit.

We sell 97 kits, or we sell the required adapters and will give you a parts list so you can make them youself from speed shop parts (JEGS, Summit, etc).

here they are installed on a 97:

I do not check PMs. Call or email if you need something.

ECR is not a parts source. We are not in the mail order business.

The one thing I would suggest to people doing this install is to put some antisieze on the fittings when you do to make them removable. The stock lines I am about 50/50 getting off in one piece. Antiseize would make them come off really easy.

When I had my 94 D90 a few years back I was driving over the Newhall Pass on the way home from British Pacific when instantly smoke poured from under the hood. I turned the engine off and coasted to the side and quickly popped the hood to find a small anount of flame at the front of the engine bay. Extinguished it and called for a tow. I had my 4 y/o son in a child seat with me and I was more concerned for him than the car.

These things can go up in seconds, do not under estimate.
