I’ve read the ecm is a little low and while I don’t plan on taking my truck through anything crazy deep, it would be peace of mind to relocate it a bit higher. Is there anyway to raise it up a bit?

As I recall, (and Id have to go check) there is some play in the wiring if you wanted to raise it some, but where it is kind of limits how much you can adjust it. In that console is really pretty tight. Once you have all that apart, you can kinda see what i mean. Im not sure if the limited amount of adjustment you can do is worth it.

But, once you remove the console parts, undo the bolts, and the wire clasp holding that main bundle, you can move it around to see.

Thanks I’ll probably do that some time in the future every inch can count if I ever got caught in that sorta situation, not that I plan too. I’m gonna lengthen the rear diff breather, and eventually snork it; maybe figure out a way to water proof the fuse box in the engine area. and try and figure something out for the distributor so it’s waterproof maybe make something that has vents that I can leave open during every day stuff, but that I can close when going through water it would be cool to water proof the ecm but I think that would be really difficult haha
