Thanks for all the info guys. CombatMedic - you're right on the money: no cruise control. Had tire patched today. One lousy little roofing nail. One bad jacking job. One big headache. Live and learn. Thanks again guys and have a happy holiday.

Hello again guys. Thanks again for the previous info. Quick question. Everything I read says the Wheel Speed Sensor is mounted on the differential. I can't see anything there but have a small wire harness going to each rear wheel, right near the Emergency brake cable. Is this the WSS or something different ?? Could these wires be part of the Low Tire Pressure receiving system ?? Main reason I ask is, really the only area that received any abuse from the fall, which was only about 10 inches or so, was the inside of the wheel - right around the shock mount, etc. This wire and adjoining mount to the inside of the "plate" definitely took some shock. How could a "smallish" fall harm something way back at the differential ?? Thanks again fellas.

The Tire Pressure Sensors are wireless. Im guessing that the wire is for the WSS. Ive seen them in other trucks and the WSS is small and if it takes a they will stroke out.

Thanks a bunch, CombatMedic. I'll unbolt and pull this assembly from the rear wheel plate and see what I can make of it. Surely appreciate your info.

Thanks a bunch CombatMedic. I'll try unclipping the harness assembly and unbolt the insert part from the wheel plate and see what I can see. Surely appreciate your help.
