Default Wiper Reservoir

https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/c...eservoir&pos=0


I know there were some minor changes between 94 and 95, but the body wasn't really changed. Would that reservoir work? I need one for winter, but I don't really want to pay $161+ dollars for one.

I bought a compatible aftermarket reservoir, but it holds less than half. If I can get a tank that is twice the size of the aftermarket I would pay $45 for it. I drive a lot between Greeley and Colorado Springs (twice a week unfortunately).


Thank you for any help you can provide.

Well, the devil is in the "detail"s. lol (sorry, couldn't resist) If you've found one cheap enuf, get it. I'll bet you can make it work.

Have you checked any local junkyards?

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

Also a lot of people parting out their trucks on Facebook. Just be careful. Some people try selling a used part for more than new costs.

At O'Reilly Auto Parts, you should be able to compare their part to yours before you pay for it.

It appears that they changed the mount bracket to save money by removing the metal mount. My issue is that I can't tell if the bolt holes match up. I guess I will order it and when I pick it up match it up to see if it works.



Thanks, if not I will buy it used. The used ones I saw are all pretty rough condition.

I obtained one of those thanks to my contact at Dorman and did a test fit on my truck. Other than leaving the metal bracket off the end, it is a direct fit.
BTW, if you order it through Napaonline, you should get free shipping!

Lots of flakes on FB too. Most are in my experience. Tried buying lots of supercharger bits and had nobody that would actually give me a quote on total cost because it was too much work to put it in a box.

Did you put a Turbo in your truck? Did it improve gas mileage? I have to drive 500 miles a week half on hills. How much did it cost when you did it? If I can get a decent price I'd be open to doing it.
