  1. Through the wheel, yes. Over the top, no.
  2. I popped mine out yesterday, and I have individual switches. I've determined I have a broken wire in the snakes nest of wires in the door. Until the problem gets worse, it will be tough to isolate. Good luck..........
  3. And now, I'm gonna throw a wrinkle into the thought process................ What if, you had all four wheels strapped through the wheels as shown above, and something damaged or removed both straps on one side? Even if just one strap loosened, the car can turn on the bed. With over the top straps, it's nuisance. Through the wheel it's a disaster waiting to happen. I like having each strap holding in two directions.
  4. We started out with "through wheel" and have switched to the over-the-wheel with tread blocks. We like the "over" type better. YMMV.
  5. I'd check it anyway. I've had too many bad "new" elictrical parts. We're now waiting on a replacement for the controller on our new Bigfoot system. First one didn't work, right out of the box. And Bigfoot has apparently had a run on them, as they have none in stock, until sometime Monday.

    Tinker Week?

    Don't have one planned for next year, yet. C'mon up, we'll leave the light on.

    Tinker Week?

    We're gonna have a good time, even if we don't fix much. We can handle oil changes, etc. too. Bring your supplies, I have drain pans and a used oil tank.

    If only we knew a person who was an expert in accident reconstruction, near Houston.😉

    Forum issues

    The past few days, I can't go directly to the HDT section of the forum, and cannot access the HDT topic list. I have to go to the main listing and click on whatever the latest post may be under the HDT tab. Re-booting this POC chromebook hasn't helped. Any suggestions?
  12. Pop the switches out or just swap the plug over to the other switch and see if it works. Super easy to do, and it will tell you if the switch is good. I took my switches out a while back when one was going flakey. It worked intermittently. Apparently, the jostling about knocked some debris out, as it's been fine ever since.
  13. Yup, we've found that rally go-ers tend to be friendly folks, and we tend to stay in contact with them. And it's not just the HDT group. We are involved with a motorcycle club, and it's the same with them. Plus, at our age, everyone's an old friend, some just older than others.😜
  14. Reservations have been made..........😁
