    Diffs use synthetic 75w-90, brand doesn't matter much to be honest. Super Tech from...

    If that was a new OEM rack put in, why is there a zip tie on the boot??

    I doubt there are any other racks out there that fit the same in every way except for how the tie rods are attached.

    Doesn't look like they are, just more compact. Pretty sure the bushing is already basically right up against the frame rail as stock.

    Little changes to the antenna tuning can make a big difference since the wavelength is so short. That's why most of those antennas aren't tune-able really, they don't really need to be. As you go...

    When you put the new bushings into the frame I suggest peening the lip of the bushing outer sleeve so that it helps hold the bushing in place. On mine from the factory they used some type of swage to...

    Check for foaming, could be getting air in the system.

    So to sum up and clarify:

    FRS:
    Ch 1-7 @ 2 watts
    Ch 8-14 @ 0.5 watts (half a watt)
    Ch 15-22 @ 2 watts

    GMRS:
    Ch 1-7 @ 5 watts (didn't notice this before!)
    Ch 8-14 @ 0.5 watts

    It only reduces power on CH 1-7 that GMRS shares with FRS, those are the 2 watt channels. But I didn't notice it was FCC approved, that is good to know. Most of those chinese radios technically...

    Looks like the button for 4hi locked might be pushed in. They can stick after a while due to age and grit. I'd take the panel back off and spray out the switches with some electrical contact cleaner....

    Probably because FRS regulations dictates a non-removeable antenna in addition to the lower power level. The BTech radios technically are not legal to use on FRS due to power and removable antennas,...

    To my knowledge there is not a huge difference between the years when it comes to the body harness aside from features removed or added, so the 08 wiring doagrams are a good place to start.

    Honestly Alex I would just go with Midland's offerings. Cheaper and preset for the channels used. Those radios you linked are quite a bit more than you would ever need for GMRS/FRS and technically...

    100 watts is nothing. Those are rookie numbers. You gotta pump those up to max legal limit, 1500 watts! If your antenna isn't arcing you're not using enough power. :giggle:

    The nice thing is that if some of us go for the GMRS and others just the FRS we can all still talk to each other since the GMRS radios also work with the FRS frequencies, they just run at the lower...

    You'd think by now they would have added a waterproof power connection, even if it is a case specific feature.
