Not trying to burst your bubble, but unless your throttle booster actually plugs into you’re OBD2 port it is robbing power from your actual throttle circuit to power the device. Most throttle circuits have no electrical head room for anything else. What can happen if the voltage drops too low you’ll end up with a dead peddle until you pull over and unplug it. I learned this the hard way and switched over to the Banks Pedal Monster which uses the OBD2 port to power the device. The best thing about this system is if something goes wrong with the voltage the Banks device automatically returns the throttle back to the trucks computer so you keep going.

Regardless it works exactly the same and if it fails I can unplugging it it less than 1 minute. It is a direct plug in with no splicing. It will not leave me stranded.

Looked at the dirt on it, and wished for two things. One, that the guys refurbishing the car wash in town would hurry up and finish it, and two, the temperature would get warm enough for me to use it when it's done! (sigh)

You can come to my house if you want. Yesterday I replaced my 18yr old garage heater with a new one. I have a water spigot and hose in there and a floor drain. DW car is getting washed today. AND we don't have any snow on the ground here and no precip in the forecast for the next 3-4 days.

Many thanks! I think I'd better wait for the car wash to open here. The new overhead door's on now, so they should be installing the new equipment inside. It should be 100% better than the old one.

It wasn't today, but last Thursday I installed my Ride Rite airbags. I just wanted to re level the truck when connected to our 336FBOK. They do a great job and as a bonus the ride did improve some. Very happy. I ordered them from E trailer, they had the lowest price and they were at my house in 2 days. Very easy, no drill install, except for the air valve, but they even provide a way that you wouldn't even have to do that.

I replaced the DDís windshield wipers (in the snow!) on her Ď14 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I couldnít believe that they were the factory original ones!

Gotta love no more vehicle payments!
My 15 silverado got the best of me, I couldn't take it anymore. In 18 I robbed the safe and paid mine off. 6yr note in 2yr 10mo.
DW and I are working on the trailer now. Should be paid off at the end if this year.

I "borrowed big" on my 2015 Ford F-150. 72 months is a LOOONNNNGGG time to pay for a vehicle, even at 2% interest. Traded it for "the mistake" at 43 months, carried over a balance, but at least got more trade than I owed...quite a bit more. Anyway, had to replace the one I traded for and owed against, So I dipped into the 'coffee can'. The Texas Lemon Law is a wonderful thing. It basically cost me $600 to drive "the mistake" eight months. Everything I added to the truck was reimbursed, even though the stealer removed the bed cover and bed rug and Weather Tech floor mats before loading it on a transport for Stericycle. I signed away 'the mistake' on January 23 last year, got my equity check that day, US Bank got paid January 28 and I got $600 over payment back, as FCA (ooops!!) overpaid my loan based on the December calculations of what I owed. Found out Capital One will not allow 'bulk' partial payments, so over 15 days in March I dribbled money to them. Meanwhile I added $155/month to my payment and on November 15 my last payment cleared. Sure felt good to have that clear title in hand when it got here last month.

Paid off my (new to me) 18 Ram 2500 last Apr. One of the main reasons I was able to afford the brand new 2021 Keystone Cougar last summer. Don't think I could deal with payments on two toys at the same time.

What year truck? I was told I couldn't add the Def percent screen in my 2016.

Wow the difference with the new shocks. Shame on me for waiting this long.

Replaced the standard 9005 Halogen low beams bulbs with LED's. Made a huge difference. Now I'm considering upgrading the high beams as well.

Was it just plug and play?

Yes. Not exactly easy to access the bulbs, there are several videos online you can watch to see how to get the headlight buckets out. All of them say to pull the plug from the main harness to the headlight bucket. I bypassed that by leaving it attached and just removing the back cover plate with a 8mm nutdriver and working the assembly on the bumper. I'll be repeating this process next weekend to replace the high beams bulbs with the exact same LED bulbs. On my truck both the high and low beams are 9005 bulbs.
