    Brake Sensor (Front) Damaged do I need to pull pads to install?

    One of my front brake sensors (Front) is damaged and alerting. My pads are great with only a few thousand miles on them. Do I need to pull pads to install the wear sensor? Or can I snap it in place without removing the pad mechanism? Just curious. Thanks

    New rear hatch shocks? Preferably better than OEM?

    Any better than stock rear hatch shocks? I'm sick of smashing my skull into the hatch as it slowly creeps down after opening it in the colder months. I'm already on borrowed neurons. I trust this forums opinion better than LR. Cheers Mike

    I was out using my telescope in the mountains and needed to use the 12v accessory plug located in the rear of the truck near the tailgate after my portable power supply died.

    washer fluid - Doesn't work in the cold? Feature or Error?

    I am assuming my washer fluid not functioning if the temperature is below 20deg C is a byproduct of crappy design more than a 'feature'. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
