Kinda bummed I'm just now seeing this thread..
Let me know when you're trying to do a run next, I'm in central VA. I should be free every Fri-Sun after October. Might be able to sneak a run in before but work is killer right now.
SOO.. The mystery has been solved. Just wanted to get back and let everyone know what I found.
After robbing the junkyard of 3 PCM's, 3 BCM's, 4 dimmer switches, 3 light switches, 2 instrument clusters and a fuse panel I found that my issue had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with any of that.
Hey guys, just wanted to put my dilemma to rest.. I finally received my lines the last week of August. WRXtra/Deerfield Precision comp'd me the 100PSI pressure gauge they have for sale on their site for my wait.
I've had the lines installed for a little over a month now and am quite pleased...
So, after using the email you shared to contact those guys I received a familiar response..
I hope I see them soon as they appear to be (and sounds like) high quality stuff. But for anyone looking to purchase just be forewarned about the lead time it sounds like they need.
Hate beating this dead horse, but figured it to be useful to people who may come across the topic.
As we know WRXtra is now known as Deerfield Precision. I ordered a full set front and rear for my 2nd Gen over two weeks ago and have heard absolutely nothing from them. My order went to...
Another Update -
The EVAP Solenoid needed to be replaced. I tried cleaning it multiple times, after voltage tested out fine two or three times and it still throwing codes, I sucked it up and put in a new one and whadoyah know,.. works great.
As for the instrument cluster, the ****storm...
Replaced the multifunction switch, light switch and dimmer switch because of how cheap they all are on Amazon.. While I had the dash apart I took the speedo out, fixed the broken odometer worm gear and replaced ALL the bulbs (23 to be exact, minus the theft light) and got it all back...
Just got my truck started back up and running after 3 years of sitting around. 1996 4.0L OHV V6 Vin code "X". Addressed all the fluids and replaced some vacuum lines that dry-rotted and she seems to be running great. I just got left with some what seem to be electrical gremlins that...
It seems like everybody is jumping back into their Explorers this year.. Good to see you back up!
If it makes you feel any better Jason, I finally decided to drop the tranny and replace my flywheel after 3 years last weekend. :cool2:
I'm in. I'm going to PM you my phone number, I lost you and Spike on Facebook and my cellphone contacts :(
Keep me posted if you guys want to put together a run! I just got mine back on the road after 3 years..
I've got one buddy, came off a '96 XLT LS 3.73's with around 90k on it. It's been sitting in my garage for a few years but still has fluid in it. It's the one with the Vacuum/CAD crap though. Will you be able to use that?
Upgrading to 33x12.50's and a Mountaineer 4.10 rear end from my factory LT235/75 tires and 3.73 rear end did NOT change my speedometer at all, the effective ratio stayed very close. I never saw any reason to go 4.56's with 33's, especially if you plan to drive on the highway at all afterwards...
Yep those are the exact ones. I'm using the front brackets at the moment, but if you're interested in selling me that RLC bumper, you can have them as well...
you may have to straighten the front brackets out, I had to "massage" them to work with my bumper... lol
They should still work fine though
