2001 Dodge Dakota SLT, 4.7l,4x4, just shy of 50k miles...
As some of you know, my Dak and I are world travelers. The truck is
currently on a boat out of Singapore or somewhere, on it's way to
Australia... where we are going doesn't appear to even have a Chrysler
dealership, so I'll be on my own for parts...
When I had the UK shop reverse the "conversion" work it'd done on my
truck to make it UK legal, they informed me that the switch to the
backup lights had died.
I'm back in the US for a couple weeks, with plans to stop at a Dodge
dealer for parts. Can anybody tell me what the part number/ actual name
is for this switch? Might save me some time.
Also, I probably asked before, but is this part user-replaceable?
Also Also, is there anything else that isn't huge that I should pick up,
bits or pieces that are likely to fail or should be replaced in the next
couple of years? The truck's been in a high moisture/salt environment,
it's now going to a high heat/sand environment. Fortunately, they're a
lot more familiar with trucks where I'm going than where I came from, so
finding a competent mechanic shouldn't be a problem. Finding the parts,
There's an active 4x4 club at my new workplace...I'm quite looking
forward to playing in the sand with my truck :)
