    If you had one of those all tricked out, it wouldn’t be any good as a farm buggy.

    THATS TRUE! It would also cost a hell of a lot more, lol.


    Next time I do want to try disconnecting the sway bar though. I need to try it on some stuff around the property to see how it acts and make sure it won’t get too much body roll.

    I've been wanting to do a TGT meet there forever. Between the shooting range and 4x4 trails, plenty of yee yee for anyone. I'm in the same boat as you. Just an old 96 ram used to go down the river sometimes. Did more trails than I probably should have, but we survived. Glad you had fun.

    That’s awesome.

    I mentioned to my wife several times that I could probably get my truck down some of the trails, but she’s nearly 30 now and we were 3 hours from home. Not a place I wanted to take the chance of breaking anything!

    We did the north pole along the back and drove down a creek bed splitting trees the whole way. I totally get the fear of breaking far from home. I figured loading and unloading torque would break axles and falling off ledges with the wheels turned was asking for tie rod damage, so I kept it slow and smart. Hit me up next time you go, I'm on the way in Temple. I bought a bad ass portable compressor and an inverter generator in case it's needed.

    We took the back way in through Gatesville and Lampasas. I’m on 35 every day for work and prefer the scenery going the back way. Though the hills probably burn a lot more gas.

    I need to get the AC fixed in my truck or wait for cooler weather before we make another trip. It’s always leaked down over a weak or so and I just charge it before a long trip. But this time the wiring that goes to the low pressure switch got really hot when I jumped it to get it to pull down so the can would empty. No idea what’s going on with it, but it shouldn’t do that, lol.

    I mentioned it and no one cared so it died

    I’m jonesing to get off the beaten path, but with The Boy being so young, and another in the oven, it just isn’t in the cards for my foreseeable future.

    I can’t wait until they’re old enough to do this stuff with me. I’m thinking once they’re potty trained, that’ll be the point where we can start.

    From my experience, a slow leak commonly ends up being caused by stale o-rings. If you had a rock through the condenser, the leak would usually not be so slow. Time to replace the o-rings or at least do a dye leak check.
    Wiring got hot? If you have an old truck with the pressure switches driving the compressor clutch directly, could the clutch solenoid be burning up? I would check its resistance and amperage against the manufacturer spec.

    It’s the wiring for the low pressure switch. It leaks at the low side charge port. I changed the Schrader valve but it still slowly leaks so it much be scratched or something where the o ring seals.

    But yeah, the plug at the low pressure switch gets HOT. Whether plugged in to the switch, or jumped for charging the system. I see what you mean about the clutch though. It’s a ‘94, I’ll have to look in to it, the wiring diagrams I have don’t even show the low pressure switch. I’ve got some all-data diagrams I downloaded a while back, but I don’t think I grabbed any for the A/C system. And my Chilton manual doesn’t show the switch. So far directly driving the compressors is the best reasoning I’ve hear so far, I’ll have to see if the high pressure switch shows the same signs of heating.

    I think you nailed it, THANKS!
