Easiest thing I have ever installed

This was very simple. You; Unplug and then unscrew the original actuator; clean out the threads; put a little thread sealer on the new one; screw it in and plug it in....Read complete review

This was very simple. You; Unplug and then unscrew the original actuator; clean out the threads; put a little thread sealer on the new one; screw it in and plug it in. Done...about 15 minutes. It said that I should remove the skid plate, but the actuator was accessible by crawling far enough under the truck and there it was in plain sight.

The new actuator looked a lot stronger. It was made of metal and not a poly like material.

I have been in the parts business for over 15 years. Have seen the good and the bad. Now Dorman has been in this industry under all sorts of names for longer than that. They have the majority of there products made by someone else, and always to the lowest bidder. This means low quality and not reliable. This actuator worked for two weeks and that was approx. Engauging the 4wd about 20 times. then nothing. If you want to test yours. Pull it out. Put 12 volt power to it. and you will see it move in and out. Almost immediatly. Well once my 4wd decided not to work one day. I pulled it out. tested it. and would not enguage. Pure and utter garbage... Im upgrading to the BWD version, which is really not all that much better. But we will see.

                Easy to remove. Bench check after remove. Apply 12 volts and should extend. If does not buy this part should fix your problem.
