Where did you order these from? Do they seem pretty durable? Looks nice by the way.

Agreed. Even though we don't have the autobahn, the autobahn edict needs to be taught over here and ASAP! Quick story: I was driving on 1-35 here in Texas and the section I was on happened to be two lanes. I was driving my moms BMW so the drive was a little 'spirited'. Well I come up to some traffic and I'm in the left lane (fast lane) and I flash my lights getting most of the 3/4 mile length of traffic. I finally come up to these two cars and following was a big Range Rover. Turns out these two cars where in fact holding the 3/4mile of traffic from passing. The people in the two cars know each other as the windows aren't tinted and they are talking on the phone/ giving hand signals to each other. I'm pissed so I sit behind the car in the left lane for 5 min flashing my lights and honking, they were going 60 in a 70. So I move behind the other car in the right lane and let the Range pull up. I look at the driver and she knows, so she rides the left lanes a$$ like dog humping a leg. The guy finally moves over, the Range passes, I move into the left lane and pass as well. I get next to the lady in the Range, give a thumbs up and she smiles. If I remember correctly there was 6 miles of open HWY in front of those two a$$h0les.

I prefer a different approach. Bust off a round from a sig and they will move. Even blanks work just fine

Warm water car washed off 2 months of Vermont brine, picked up some Meguiar's and did the inside of the Jeep. Tremendous product. Interior hasn't looked this good since 1993.

Also, I hadn't cleaned up my new full doors since I picked them up. The panels were horrible looking but intact. Some elbow grease and Meguiar's and they look like new as well.

Thought my wallet was gonna get date raped buying a new instrument cluster dimmer switch aka rheostat. Keeps blowing the fuse and only goes on and off no longer dims. Found it on eBay for ten bucks plus ten shipping. I love eBay

It ashamed cops don't do this more often going slow is just as dangerous as speeding. Speedier get tickets slow people should too. The speed limit is there for a reason

Replaced the water pump for the 2nd time in as many years. Funny how refurb'd parts only last just past the warranty. Went new this time, popped in a new stat too while I was at it, and new serp. belt, heater and rad hoses as well since I didn't last year. Replaced the fan clutch earlier in the week before getting to the pump.
Running like a top now!

Burned up the switch for the front lights (not headlights) had a few laying around but now I keep blowing the fuses ... I guess now I'll have to rip it all apart and find out the problem

Wave as you pass me :D

The problems of owning 2 Jeeps ... I never know which one to work on or which YJ gets the next mod ...
