  1. In Need of First Gen Parts!!

    I know up here 1st gen parts are like hens teeth. Most wrecking yards are up here dont even have Dodge trucks because they are purchased before they hit the yard.

    I've not forgotten about the pics... Just my camera is down at Muddy's and ill do a photo of the lights down there. As for upgrading my driving lights I'm thinking about doing PIAA RF series driving lights and fog lights. Now remember driving lights are narrow long distance lights which would be awesome in my high beam position. Then fog lights are wide but short beam path which would be awesome in the low beam position. http://www.piaa.com/RFSeriesLED?Attribs=55

    Wow that's going to be a tough one being 1st Gen 12V stuff is getting pretty rare to get ahold of now.

    I'll try and remember... Let's say in daylight hours I can see the very top edge of the headlights bounce onto the bottom edge road signs and reflect back.

    Don't go here LED bulbs are not as good as think they are. Poor pattern. I'll see if I can find the video on my site and post it here. Only if the headlight housing is design around the LED bulb. If you attempt to put a LED in Halogen headlight case you find the pattern is really poor. Kind of like putting a halogen in a LED headlight it won't work right. Kind of like my sport headlights. They have tons of light pouring out of them but the optics of the reflector is junk so the pattern on the ground is junk. Nasty hotsppot and horrid spread. Stock OEM headlights tend to have little hotspot and massive spread of light but defused too much. Here is LED's installed in Halogen headlight case... Just consider driving towards this guy all the time. Here is my old Sport headlight and driving light setup on lo beam.

  8. Hey guys... Anyone want to post this up on my site? I've just gone over to check and no post placed.

    Might be true... Now you have to bake the lens off your headlights or buy new headlights and bake the lens off them. Then install the HID lights and verify the HID units are mounted correctly and working correctly. Then seal the lens back on again. Then install and aim the lights. So for the price I paid the light are assembled in brand new headlight cases, the lens baked off and resealed. Then they set them up in a jig and aim them for you. When you get the headlights it basically a bolt on item and no adjustments required. Where if you do it yourself there is a lot of things that could go wrong. So, for the price I get a warranty and way less headache. Being I'm traveling over 750 miles a week and coming home at midnight it really was really nice to pay the money and have a bolt on item that I didn't have to mess with to make work. That's priceless...

    Staying general speaking... If a code is tripped for the sensor you need to verify the +5V is present. The test the wiring from ECM to the sensor for 0 ohms, Then test the same wiring of infinite from the wire to ground to ensure there are no shorts to ground. Then it might be worth testing to see if the signal is intermittent or constant out of range.

    After a week of driving with the Morimoto HID's I'll say it well worth the money after tried the stock OEM headlight which are horrid. Then trying the Sport headlights with a relay mod to light both blubs for hi and lo beams. It's OK but nearly good enough for back country travels. Still the Morimoto HIDs put more light on the pavement that any other solution I've seen. The widest path of light on hi or lo beams. On flat ground, you can see at least 30 to 40 feet on either side as you're traveling. Switching to hi beam has zero impact on the pattern on the ground. This because of the cut off shutter dropping out of the beam pattern internally. So this is all done with a single bulb and shutter that cuts the lo beam pattern. As you can see the step in the shutter.
  12. @MUDDY or @4Play need to post that up on my site... https://mopar1973man.com/forum/46-northwest-states/ I see the last post from ITD was by lcacn, June 30, 2013

    Most OBDII tools can do that exactly. The only difference like Dodge Dealer's user a DRBIII tool which does a bit more but most techs don't know how to properly use even that tool. Even I work from a different aspect of diagnostic work. I work on a two smoking gun rule. Basically, I've got to perform two different tests that will fail out a device or part. Some what true. Some of us are just plain hidden in the middle of Idaho.
