hey clay, do you need an old coolant sender for a 200tdi? I'll look at home to see if I still have my old one sitting in the box.

looks like I found it.

Happy to say, nothing. Just used it to pick up feed and visit the indoor range.

I feel this so much right now.. I feel like I've been tinkering with something on my truck for ages and am finally in one of those stages where I'm just getting to enjoy driving it every day!! (Knock on wood)

yeah, experimenting which sender works with my gauge. over a zillion opinions out there and it seems to come down to trial and error. Hold on to it if you don't mind.

Bought a set of Freestyles from Carl/Manimal/Tiktaalik earlier this year. Prepped & painted them, & today swapped the tyres over. I like it! Rest of the rig looks bad because 1) the 2014 doors don't match the 1985 paint, 2) the roof rack is off because the rig won't fit in the garage with it on, and 3) I pulled the A-bar off to paint it & mount it on the MOD bumper I bought.

Work in progress!

duly noted

haven't actually driven without the spare on there (waiting on brake light switch to arrive), so I will take it for a spin once I have brake lights again before issuing a verdict

I wonder if there's a market for "fake" bonnet spare tires, made of plastic and rubber. Could weigh 5 lbs and still give the poser look.

I always thought that a "fake" spare with a hinged lid would make a good storage spot for recovery gear...
