    You'll find a manual trans most often in 1st-gen ('91-'94) Explorers, majority of which were 2-door Sport models, but there's some number of 4-doors with them too. Finding manuals gets progressively...

    I recall my BII being rated 22 hwy by the epa, yet I've gotten over 26 from it before I put on the lift & 35" tires (even now, it still can get low-20s hwy). Aside from driving habits, probably the...

    6000K in a LED is going to create huge amounts of glare without much useable light (very strong bluish output on those, about the very last thing you want in rain or fog).

    3500-4000K would be much...

    The WX function on a CB is dismal at best. Pretty much exactly how Martinjmpr describes it (big part of the problem is the CB antenna it's hooked to is not tuned for reception on VHF).

    They draw about 3.5 - 4.5 amps when the compressor is running (and is why some cig-lighter sockets cause trouble with them), and about 0.05 - 0.1 amp when idle. Averaging it out it's probably a total...

    That is what I recall, yes.

    Should be able to confirm just by plugging it into 12V and checking the connections with a meter.

    That doesn't sound right... If lets say there is 80 amps flowing through it, that means you're consuming 40 watts inside of the unit, which would burn up it's contacts in very short order.

    Was that 12.79V with the engine running or off?

    The 2nd battery remaining at 11.51V would indicate that it is not being charged at all (any current going into it should raise it's voltage, even if it's by only 0.01V).
