Well I was gonna go wheelin' last night, however when I got in the truck my running lights weren't working. I played with the switch a little and have come to the conculsion that my headlight switch is shot. Now I'm stuck between buying a new switch, or wiring in two toggle switches and relays (one for headlights, the other for running lights).

Does anyone know which wires on the switch go to what light? I've been pagin thru the Chilton's manual, but I'm not good when it comes to existing wiring. If I rewire the whole thing I could figure it out, but thats not worth the effort.

Yeah, I would love to let you know, but I don't know of any strict laws. I have seen trucks that drive out here (on pavement) with Terra style tires! Probably something like 16-20" of lift. To give a good example would be the Superduty's - most out there have side mirrors that are the height of my stock Ram's roof!!! So, if you lift or have a lift you only need mud flaps to protect other cars - yet I wouldn't worry until a cop stops you and write a warning (I like to push it!) Be sure to stay in touch and I will be happy to hook up with you and show you some of the good places to wheel!

Yeah, there are older style Ram's, just not too many - perhaps a handful. So, at least you'll be in an elite group! Most trucks out here are 1-Ford SuperDuty, 2-Chevy (90's and up), 3-Dodge's w/ Superlift or 3" spacers, 4-Suburbans/Excursions. I know of one guy at work who is running 39's on a 86 Ram. That's about the highest older style Ram I have seen lifted. Where your mom is is the "East" part of the Valley, I live in "Surprise" which is the "west" part of the valley. SO, I suppose we can meet in the middle and go from there, I know of LOT'S and LOT'S of good places, maybe about 12 at least. I am lifting my Ram next weekend and will be heading out to test it - I will take pictures and post 'em! Look forward to having you out! There's too much to do and not enough sobering hours to do it (so you'd prolly have to be buzzin!! LOL)

No spouses understand mud the way those who go through it do.
Going down a road, there's a mudd puddle on the shoulder - I have to FIGHT to keep from turning into it when I am with my wife. I think she feels I am defective or something! Mud is like a magnet to 1/2 inch steel with me - it's too powerful to fight and just to fun going through it just once!! <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif">
People think I am deranged, personally - I like my Dad's nick name for me - "pigpen"

Well, It'd be a bit tough with out lockers to climb 44's, yet if you have that Cummins than I would say you best crawl on my 35's and not my hood or fender!!! <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif">
Looking forward to having you out - Bringing the Girlfriend? Like to roll down through college town to check out the scenery!?

Sorry Jason! Well, I suppose we will have to plan on a time and Chris and I can chat there. I have checked out the rooms, but no one is ever in there when I have been browsing!
