    Bleeding brakes

    I had to remove my axles recently. When I got everything back together, I am having trouble bleeding the rear brakes. Cannot get fluid to flow. The front are fine.

    Fun with Wirring

    Anyone want to take a shot at where the leads go on this small section of wiring harness ? It comes from the trans/transfer. Iam thinking one of these goes to the 4wd indicator for sure. Just not sure which. That's what I get for not tagging Everything..:eek:
