    Hi Dick - I've seen your many posts and the help you've provided to SSR owners over the years. We really need an advocate like you.

    I've had my '04 since May of 2012 and had very few problems. Lately my speedo & gas gauge went haywire (fixed by Chevy) and now I'm having hydraulic roof issues. When lowering the roof I get a timeout, followed by "ILHI HALL SWITCH FAULT". My dealer indicated right hydraulic cylinder and hose (both no longer available). Reading through the Tech Issues thread I see the reference to retrofitting cylinders from the outfit in Oregon. I am now retired and I plan to sell my beauty but do not think it's economical to replace one or two cylinders if others are going to fail after that.

    Based in Fort Myers and willing to travel to Clearwater if I can get a fix. Any ideas?

    Dick had my SSR about 4 years and had to sell in September b/c of family life changes. That being said I had a number of additional parts most of which are sold.
    I had replaced my lower radiator support with Mike's as you have suggested here on the site many times. I put the plastic support on my sale list asking $20 here on the forum. Frankly never thinking it would ever sell b/c as you have stated we put them in the trash after replacing. Well I had a member of long standing quickly inquiring whether if was the OEM support and wanted to purchase. I started to wonder why an seemingly informed member would want the support. I did some research and found that OEM new supports are about $350 and there is a damaged one on Ebay for $212. So I sent an email to Wild Bill's and next day got an offer of $150. Maybe the stars were aligned that day for some reason.....but wanted to pass this info along to ya....
    Again thanks for all you have done and continue to do for the sport.

    Hi Dicktator,

    Im looking for rear SSR parts, tailgate bumper and exhaust. Can you help?

    Hi! I have a 2005 SSR and am having a top problem. Both main lift actuators are leaking, and the top will not open. I saw a write-up where you replaced all eight hydraulic actuators, and had a power point with photos. I've searched all over the site for the power point, and can't find it. HELP?

    Thank You

    Pat Tydor

    Hopefully you check your mail before you head to Alabama in the morning. Theres a guy with a soft sided storage bag for sale coming to the rally guys name Bonedoc from Arkansas and Im trying to make a deal with him for the bag, said he wants $75 for it. Trying to get him to call me before he heads there to make a deal on it and was wondering if you could bring it back with you? I will try and call you in the morning maybe catch you before you leave, if not I can always have him mail it to me. Have a safe trip see you when you get back.
