Hey Luke S!

I'm wondering if you could have a jaw with your service boys, and see if Chrysler has a fix for the freaky governor on these trucks. Is there a reflash or something along those lines?<br><br>The reason I ask is that I was turning the corner at the local RCMP barracks today, when the governor took off with the truck, and kicked my bad end sideways. Its a good thing there were no officers around, because it looked like I was showing off. Stunting tickets in the frozen North are pricy :'(<br><br>Rod

Re:Hey Luke S!

Thanks Casey. I'll have 'em check it out. I never thought of a bad APPs from factory.<br><br>But this does bring up a good question: Why does the 2003 FSM show two different APPs assemblies? Its got an &quot;early&quot; style (like mine), and &quot;later&quot; models with a completely different mounting location for the APPs. I'm assuming that there was going to be a mid-year switch at some point, but I was curious as to why?<br><br>Rod
