    What all do I need to install a cruise control kit on a CUCV?

    When you installed your rostra kit, what did you do about the tachometer input wire? Did you just leave it disconnected or did you figure out a means of sending tach signal to it? The Rostra kit indicates that tach signal isn't necessary but is a good idea for safety, to keep the engine...

    Has anyone ever used a "6.2 Rear main seal installation tool"?

    let me guess you found out about the oil pan gasket just as you went to put the first few bolts in lol.

    extra fuel tank outlet?

    the arctic fuel kits tap off the fuel line up behind the pass side front tire there is a tee in the line for it there. On our trucks I was told that the line you talk about is to drain the tank if you should ever need to change it out,
