15 years pgt (post geo tracker)

Its been 15 years since Chevy stopped selling the beloved geo tracker! Because of this people had to have bigger garages to park larger cars which caused the housing bust and the Rv market collapsed without enough trackers to go around. Where is a replacement?
Osama called no more geo trackers the final insult!

How could this have happened?

I use magnetic wireless lights that work OK although they aggravate me because you have to change the batteries every time you use them. I will put the diode kit on one of these days...but your lights should be bright...sounds like a bad ground...a friend of mine has your year and his lights are bright...

I use these .... they sandwich between the rear window lower bar and the top of the tailgate. I run the cable thru the passenger window, around the pillar and under the hood. I have a 10 ft. extension permanently under the hood that goes from (approximately) the area near the windshield washer tank to the back of the RV .... I just pull it back and coil it when toad is not towed.

We bought our 94 2WD Tracker as an interim toad until we decided what we wanted as a permanent one. Turns out what we wanted was the Tracker. It is in the paint shop right now waiting for the owner to get a new body man (his disappeared) and paint to match the MH. No hurry, we won't be needing it until late Oct.

I'm not sure why lights would be dim. Ours came ready to tow with the tow plate and diodes for the lights. Plug the harness in and they look OK to me. DW worries with how small it is someone might plow into us so I am thinking of replacing the brake lights with LEDs. At least the center one over the spare tire. kwill do you think that might help?
