I was at the yard last week and was just wandering around trying to find cool stuff and ideas. I do the same thing at Sears and Home Depot. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I found a G series van and noticed how the engine oil and trans dipsticks are longer to reach out of the doghouse and to the hood where they can be checked more easily. Any body else think this would be a good idea on a lifted /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifor /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif? Has anybody else tried this? I can't see why it wouldn't be a good idea assuming you can find the right dipstick.( driver/pass side from the right year and type) What da you'ens think?
