Hey, Scott, just wanted to say, nice job, especially on a truck that was once a stocker, that you turned into a true expedition rig (lol...the tail-lights you installed make me think your rig is a mini-Expedition, haha! Get it? lol)
I thought that when your truck turned 20, that you would have taken a drive back to the dealership where you got it, so you could show them the truck and what you've done to it since you bought it. Pretty sure that they would have never thought you would have stuffed a Mustang V-8 underneath a Ranger hood, tho!
Hopefully, I'm going to try and find two more 1992s, to go with the one I already have--and one of them I hope to make into a trail-worthy rig that, while it may not rival yours, can be an inspiration to those of us who, like you, want to turn ideas into reality.
I can honestly say, sir, that I am thoroughly impressed with everything you've done, and can't wait to see what improvements you have in store for the future! And, I hope that your truck stays a faithful servant for the next 20 years. Nice job on everything. My hat is off to you, sir.
Just a quick question, Scott--when you took out the original cruise control system on your '93, where was the cruise control amplifier located? I ask because I was tracing some wiring, on my own truck, from the servo, and it first went to the transducer (box on the driver's side, located similar to the ECU), then it went to a white box, located under the dash, underneath the ash tray (near the transmission tunnel). I'm asking because it seems like my '92 was wired like your '93 was originally. Also, was your cruise on your '93 put on at the factory, or was it dealer-installed? Any information would be helpful; thanks.
The other thing I'm wanting to know is, did you keep your ABS on your truck? I took out my fuse for my RABS (my truck was built before AWD ABS), and the cruise on my truck doesn't work--doesn't even turn on. I've been doing some research, and some diagrams I've seen show the ABS system--even RABS--is tied into my cruise system somehow.
Your thoughts, Scott? And can I pull of the 'skin' of the dash to get at the amplifier, or do I have to actually remove it to get at the amplifier?
