    Chris,

    Thanks for the write up on the switch replacement. Ever since I swapped the tailgates on my 88 & 89, I've been procrastinating on swapping out the switches. This weekend its going to happen, and I'll finally be able to use the key again!

    Thanks again,


    John

    Nice. Why don't you send it to Steve and see if he would like to use it for a tech article.

    That's a great write-upp. I'v had lots of people e-mail me privatly because of the one I have on my web-page, it's really a problem that a lot of blazer/jimmy owner have. I think your write-upp describes it so well everyone could fix their own tailgate even if they are not to comfortable wrenching their own stuff.

    One for the official CK5 archives for sure [​IMG][​IMG]
