Got my old rigid fog lights to work on the new Ranch Hand. Glad I had local spring shop do level with extra leaf after reading the added weight will cause sagging over time. Decided to pull off the air dam since it clearly wonít work with the new bumper.

Another project i did today was some wiring clean up. I am a sucker for good flashlights, and I keep a Streamlight Strion in my truck at all times. I have its charger mounted next to my brake controller and the wire run under the dash. It used to have Cigarette plug that i kept plugged in 24/7 to the lower cigarette port. Well I was tired of it and decided to do an add a fuse and splice it in to the exist charger cable. So i snipped off the plug and wired it up to the ground screw to the right under the steering wheel dash panel. And for the power I added an add a fuse to the horn fuse. Its a 15amp and its key off power. The flashlight charger pulls less than like .8 of an amp when its charging and when it fully charges the flashlight it goes in to a top off mode pull less and .1 of an amp. Some heat shrink and a few zip ties later wha la. I did notch the fuse panel cover so it would fit back on. Its not even that big of a difference on the looking at the dash, but just having the stock cigarette lighter instead of a plug is enough for me.

Since Im still a rookie, anyone have an idea why pictures i upload always turn sideways???

I've been messing with the key fob for the past couple days..... going into key fob programming mode the other day it wouldn't recognize the original fob. Figured the fob was bad.

Two new fobs arrived yesterday. Truck wouldn't even go into programming mode.

Pulled the #19 fuse for a minute and reinstalled.

Entered program mode an it recognized/programmed the two new fobs.

Probably should of also had the original fob with me to see if it was still good, oops, lol. I bet it is.

From the bit of research I've done on this issue, having to pull the fuse sounds like the VSM is on borrowed time?

I don't have any of the other symptoms like the door ajar warning, dome light and headlight craziness.

Do you take the pics with an iPhone? Was it sideways when you where taking the pics? If so try rotating the phone 180* and take pictures that way. Since people are creatures of habit they always keep their phone a curtain way like the home button is always to the right. I donít know why but if the home button is on the wrong side the pics come out wrong.

Ill try to mess around with it later, I did just bite the bullet and get a Edge CTS2 for the truck. Thoroughbred had no tax on the order so it saved 30 bucks. Looks like its gonna be PB&J sandwiches for a while though lol.

But normal braking around town it brakes soo straight. It used to always pull to the right before i tore into it yesterday.
I WAS TAUGHT TO ALWAYS REPLACE CALIPERS IN PAIRS.....BECAUSE SOMETIMES NEW OR REBUILT CALIPERS WILL GRAB DIFFERENTLY THAN OLDER CALIPERS.....CAUSING PULLING TO ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER.....
