    Just saying:

    I'm tired of shifting from Drive to Reverse and back to Drive - maybe a push button on the dash would be easier & quicker for shifting ...

    How about an electric FRONT De-ice on the bottom of the windshield to prevent ICE build up under the wiper rest areas ?

    I know ... but - I want to be in charge of everything :mad:

    And drains in the door pockets ...

    And Brake Lines & Tranny lines that don't rot out

    Do you know that shifting back and forth on the tree or a center console is the same as pushing a button. There is no cable going down to the tranny to change gears anymore

    Buy a 56 Packard.

    Buy a Subaru

    Use a drill. Wait, in the door pockets? Spilling alot of coffee or something?

    I'm 100% behind you here. Fluid film seems like the answer with regular applications.

    Heated steering wheel when you hit the heated seats?

    Actually, no - not on these trucks. There is a cable, and it connects to the NSBU switch on the transmission.

    I remember in the for sale section there was 2 different listings for heated supers and one for lower windsheild heaters to fix these issues.

    I sprayed fluid film on all the ground terminals under the truck on day one, I will have to check again when it warms up. Just about any nut or bolt you expect to work on in the future could use a thin coat.
    My plows and plow frames all look new.
