    You need the proper crimping tool though. A proper crimp is required and the cheap crimping tools wont cut it and they can damage the
    heat shrink insulation creating a problem down the road or not hold and cause an intermittent connection. These are what I use:

    That crimping tool is are probably over thirty years old now.

    Nissan has the same short cord set-up. How dumb!

    As someone who had the luxury of pulling those pieces of **** for years... Karma. Karmas coming for that wiring job!
    And yet, after nearly 10 years of government by Stephen Harper and his anti-choice army, you can still get an abortion in Canada. At this point, the political right’s agenda is so well hidden Sherlock Holmes couldn’t find it with a Huawei P30 powered by a trillion Watsons.

    That old mack said "value liner" on the side.
    Its a neat looking rig to someone like me who knows absolutely nothing about trucks that size.
    The guy who had it was a retired trucker and he pulled around an enormous holiday trailer with it. (He has since passed)
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    Good times.

    I like the idea of a covered receptacle for block heater plugs. I always re-route my block heater plug to come out by the windshield wipers between the hood and the cab of the vehicle. I always hated bending down to try and plug in, now it's just right there easy to plug and unplug. And as a bonus because you can easily see the extension cord when getting into the vehicle my wife never drives away with the cord still plugged in any more.

    The strippers on those are shit too.

    The best ones are the ones that grip and melt the insulation and then pull it off, but they don't work with all types of isnulation.
    Next best are the mechanical ones that grip and cut not quite all the way then pull and break the insulation where you want to strip. That way you're not nicking or breaking strands in the wire, a no-no in some applications (like in aviation).
    Know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with 'til you understand who's in ruttin command here.

    Also a good wire sizer for those who have trouble identifying the size of wire they need or are working with !!
    Nothing will F--k you up as much as the realization that there's no real reason the alphabet needs to be in order !!

    There is no such thing as left over bacon !!
