Iím glad   I donít estimate work for a living.   I thought I could do a job in 15 minutes..... it took four hours.

I told someone to count on 10 days for a project we finished in 8... she asked for a discount.  I asked her if it took 11 would she pay more?

Anyone else have weak and slow wipers?

Tracker power steering works pretty good, but it is not a strong system. I have 32's and it will turn them when not moving but it takes some effort. I am going to switch to the Astro setup soon as I am going bigger though.

I run 31's and I can turn with very little effort with my tracker pump.

But I think they are popular because the pumps are easy to find, cheap, and work well. You can spend more and get something better of course. I'm happy with my tracker pump for now.

Mine are super slow/weak. I want to replace my motor but I need to take the whole dash out it seems. But to do that I need to take my cage out. Ugh.
Also, my wiper fluid tube has a hole in it somewhere and I have no clue how to replace it.

Do people usually replace with OEM or is there a better setup?

I'm not researched the wiper issue. I do have like 2 or three extra wiper motors. At least 2 are from a sidekick. I was going to see if there is a way to swap the motors with minimal fabrication (preferably none).

Having factory AC, I don't think I could run PS unless I go with EPS. Not 100% sure though.

That is my understanding too.

Mine click when on low, but otherwise work well. The click is new, I hope the motor is not on it's way out...

I stopped doing comissions and bespoke work because of the above. Pissed me off really bad and felt so demeaning.

My wipers only really work on low or high. They don't work, or work intermittently (as in they used to work, but don't) on the intermittent setting. I'm pretty sure it's an electrical issue instead of a mechanical one, though.

One day I need to go through all the grounds on this thing. I took care of a couple of them about a week ago before we had snowmageddon.

My wipers turn on with only one speed... slow.

Mine still do intermittent. Yes, the best ocd thing I've done to Zukie is sanded, cleaned, and dielectric greased every single ground screw I've been able to find, the backing that touches the body, and the little O connectors, some of which I replaced. Peace of mind, and it looks good. Heh.
