For starters, thi si sthe mess I found under the dash, most of thes wires are "Extra" that got left behind after there useful lives had ended. any wire I found under the dash the had nothing hooked to it got check for either power of ground, and none was found it got removed. with with power on them also got removed. wires showing ground got tested to see what the operated, some were just grounded out on the other end.

This is just some of the extra wiring removed, I had a big box full of unused wire by the time I had finshed.

This is how things looked under the dash when i got done. every wire has a job and there are no extras just hanging around.

The inside of the "Aid Station" is about the same size as a side in camper, and I'm thinking with vary little work one could build a place to sleep onboard.

Good news, Jolly:
That's a sharp truck and have been following since you got it.
Would like to see it in person sometime.
It deserves to be there, imo.

I figuered it was a good time to get the Rescue Squad out and air up the tires, they have looked low from the time it arrived in Utah last summer.

The front tires & outside rears all had 32psi, kinda low of a truck this size, the manaul saids 65 should be the high end, I pumed them up to 70psi. The inner duals, both of them, had only 10 psi, I wonder if they just never checked them.
