I have the same brake fade problem on D. Based on what you said above, my brake hydraulics are pretty similar to yours as well. Completely bypassed the ABS pump by running hardline. ABS light of course is on in the cab, but the whole pump and everything is gone.
If you pull the relay, light goes out.

Should be getting my tie rod back tomorrow. The machine shop that straightened it says you can't tell it was bent. The delay was because he did not charge me and put the paying jobs first. He says it should not bend in the same spot, unless I park it on a rock again.

I was also out of town except for two days this past few weeks. Sarah had a horse show in Burbank (thanks for the pizza Norm and Sue), and I took my mom on an old folks RV trip to Puerto Penasco, Mexico. My first time down south since they started leaving people's heads on overpasses. Think I got a new RV out of playing chauffeur, and I returned with head attached, so it was worth the trip.

Should have the Explorer back together by Thursday.

Got the steering back together. 1/8"-1/4" toe in, good to go.

Wife was complaining about no sun visors on the last trip. They were removed to properly place the cage windshield cross tube. I ordered these universal visors off eBay for $14 for both. They are supposed to attach to the existing visor.

A little trimming turned them into sun visors that won't get in my way, and seem to do the trick. No vanity mirrors though, sorry.

Need to run to the hardware store for some longer self-tapping screws to install. I can screw them through the headliner and into the roof support behind the windshield. Will post a completed pic when finished. It should also help keep the headliner in place. It's been abused and is getting old.

Straight tie rod.
Never sleeved it, if it gets bent again I will have to figure something out.

So what's the trick to adjusting heim steering so the heims line up? I tried wrenches at both ends, shoving metal in between the heim and mounts, they still shift at the last second. End up saying close is good enough every time I mess with them.

New sun visors installed. They should work out nicely.

The visor is a nice mod.

I guess I've been lucky with my heims, normally they line up without too much trouble.

Let me give it a road test or two before you purchase. They might shake around and annoy me, which means they will have to come off.
Deal, I also need a link to your LED backup lights. I need some better backup lights on the camper. Your's are the perfect low profile.:thumbsup:

Spent several hours today changing out the AC systems compressor, drier and orifice. Took longer to get the orifice out and flush the system than anything else. Orifice was a little dirty and I had to use a curved pick to get it out of the tube:

Will get it evacuated and charged next week. Giving the AC system one more chance.
