1999 Ultimate Advantage 40J

Does anyone know the year and model of the headlights on the 40J trying to replace lenses and it's ford maybe a Crown Victoria but all the parts web sights can't identify.

IIRC it is a Merc. 1996 Mystique. Be sure you don't get a Chinese knockoff.

I had a 1999 Ultimate Freedom and the lights were foggy. I traded it though a couple years back when things started failing.

Yep, '96 Mystique ...actually fit 95-97 I think.

I tried polishing mine with no success at all ...very little flat surface and too hard to get to. One of mine was loose from the fiberglass. I dropped the coach last week at Xtreme Paint in Nacogdoches TX for a ''headlight upgrade" and some front end paint repair where the clearcoat was peeled. They do some very impressive fiberglas & paint work.

Another UA40J Question

The temp gauge has cool normal and hot also the oil gauge has low normal and high and I intend to change them out with some new ones with actual numbers on them. I contacted Freightliner and they don't know the manufacture of these gauges do any of you know as I would like to change the gauge without changing the sending unit if possible, it's hard for me to believe that they installed these cheap gauges on a nice coach. I'm going to pull the dash up and see if I can get ant reading on the manufacture but the may not be labeled.

I have a 40J that I just purchased these Mercury Mystic headlights and have them now they cost $161.95. The problem is when I went to install them I soon found out that I would have to remove the front cap. I called Winnebago and they confirmed that this is what has to be done to install them. I haven't done yet, but the headlights are a match. However they are not OEM, but look the same.
