Just asked at mechanic shop I was at and they said its the dye in the system They said its most likely the relay that's gone bad. Ill test that out by swapping with another when I get home.

UV dye is added with A/C oil. You can then use a black light to see the leaks.

Yes sir freon is messy, I'll mess with the relay tomorrow to see if that's the case. The CB extension is awesome, just need to drill a hole thought the center console to run the wires and I'm good to go.

Progress on the CB install.

Bracket installed inside the center console.

Holes cuts in the front and rear for wires. They both look the same.

CB mounted.

Just dropped off at Torch Monkey Fabrication. They'll be modifying the tranny cross member and building a front bumper with fog lamp mounts tabs and a winch mount. Should be completed and ready for pick up this Saturday.

Well as usual things did not go as planned with the trac. Just picked it up, all they were able to complete was the new cross member (at least that got done).

I'll take one later, it's very minimal. All they did was move it over via shifting the pipe with out having to weld or anything. It's a very small clearance for the shaft. I'm betting it probably bangs against it when I wheel it, but shouldn't be a big deal.

I tried to get a good picture but it's leaking coolant at the hose that plugs into the bottom of the motor.

So you need a pan gasket and a lower radiator hose? I thought we put on new radiator hoses
