LOL.  So complicated!

PM me the email address you want to use.  I think that's an admin-editable field.

Getting caught up here... first off, here are the ecu and harness for said ecu, courtesy of my spare.





Charger sent me instructions on how to DL the ROM. As soon as I can get into the Pajevo again, I'll give it a go and let you guys know how that goes.

Need pictures of the inside. Put a penny between each of the slots and the plastic bumps holding it in. Should slide right on out.

Couple things are trickling in.

Got a care package from ADD, and a heater core.  I don't know for sure if my core is bad.  Heat sucks, core doesn't appear to be leaking, and i definitely have some ducting/blend issues.  Dash is coming out to be swapped for a non-airbag dash anyways, and no way i'm taking the dash out and NOT replacing the heater core and re-sealing all the ducting, and probably adding additional insulation to the firewall.

Question:  Can anybody tell me about the nav pod that i've seen a few people talk about?  I want an Android Auto headunit in this truck, but the placement of the stereo is ridiculously awful.  I would settle for being able to run a tablet in a nav pod where my nearly-useless oem aux gauges are, and just running a permanent aux cable from it into the headunit.  Give me nav and could run OBD2 monitoring through it if i wanted to stare at some gauges.

It appears to maybe be the box that the core sits in?  I'm honestly not sure.  I'll figure it out when i have it all apart.  :)

Also:  Got my newly ADD Bulletproof'd idler in the mail today.  Thanks!  Hope you dudes had a great Christmas!

Finished (for now, considering a different seatpost, and need to bleed the brakes) my new bike.  Hoping to use the Monty to haul this thing around.  Not going to bother with a rack, just throw it all muddy in the back.  Bike is a 2017 Gravity 29Point4 with the following small mods:  Scudgood pedals (Raceface Chester copies), Full Speed Ahead SLX Carbon 740mm low rise bar, Odi Troy Lee Designs lock on grips, RaceFace Chester 50mm stem.  Weighed in a little piggy at just over 30lbs.  Carbon stem and running tubless (already set up for it) should get it in the low 29s/high 28s.  Good enough for me to beat on for a year.

I have rears now, too.  Just waiting on springs/bars now.  :)  Going to flesh out the rest of the stuff i need to order tomorrow.  On the list:

1) Outer tie rods (mine have about... 2000 miles on them, but the OCD in me requires that i "re-set" the entire truck)
2) Front lower control arms
3) Other things, which i need all ya'all's help with.

Still having no luck finding good parts diagrams for these trucks.  I'm wanting to make a list of parts/stuff to replace/clean/refurb/reseal/insulate while i have my dash out to A) Replace heater core and B) swap to a non-airbag dash.  My blower motor works, but is a little noisy.  I'm sure it needs to be cleaned at best, replaced at worst.  I would like to add a cabin filter as well.

Who wants to spoon feed me in the name of the greater good?

Man I miss riding. 29'ers are definitely the most comfortable out of everything, I miss mine.

That Aesop + Brittany mash up, I dont know what to think about it...I think it angers me because the original coffee is like my favorite song. lol

Good to see everything arrived safely!

On the spoon feeding... man under that dash is such a clusterfu... there's no real approach here that ive seen yet. take off the dash cover and stare in awe at all the shit they packed in there... i'll try to take timelapse of me doing my heatercore, it's like eating an elephant. one bite at a time.
