Anybody need a block heater for their GEN3 (2000-2002)?
Alright, I can't believe nobody called me out on my comment regarding the block heater. The block heater is the same 98-2002 for all engines. As it turns out I was attempting to install it upside down. It's in now and ready for winter.

On another note, I acquired some stock hubcaps this summer for use on my winter wheels. When I tried to install them this past weekend the lug nut caps that hold the hubcaps on came nowhere close to threading onto the external lug nut threads. It appears that the steel wheels I bought a couple years ago have a deeper "dish" to them. Does anyone know if there are longer caps that would accommodate for this? Any other ideas to make this work?
