    I'm not sure about the blinker fluid (different trucks keep it in a different place), but the muffler bearing is the part that keeps the muffler purring like a kitten.

    If you ever notice a choppy exhaust sound, check that bearing fast.

    Should be on the same isle as the sky hooks. Those sky hooks can't be beat. When your trying to tarp a 15ft load.

    if it's an american made truck, the blinker fluid is very easy to find, under the hood..if it is a foreign made truck, the blinker fluid is not only more difficult to find, but also metric...

    the muffler bearing(s) depending on size, width, length, can be found at most parts stores like pep boys, napa, auto zone, and they are the same part number as the truck dealerships, and you save tons of money. just buy AMERICAN bearings, as the chinese makers have flooded the stores with cheaply made, copies that are not made out of high strength steel.

    most muffler bearings have the same look about them...

    The turn signal fluid is next to your backup secondary transmission. If you look behind that you will see the "black box" that transmits your location, and your internet browsing history, and all your cat pictures to the New World Order, headquartered in Copenhagen. It's no joke, really. According to Alex Jones those guys drink each other's blood and turn into giant lizards.

    If the shop thinks you are a rookie, they will pretend they don't know what you are talking about. You DON"T want to get caught by DOT without Blinker Fluid or worn muffler bearings. The points they put on your PSP score are tripled the first year.

    Ask the Maint/Shop chief for the id 10t form then have your trainer help you fill it out. It shows the location on his particular truck of where those are.
