Duratracs are amazing in the winter, just not on ice (which is pretty obvious)

Going to have trouble deciding next year whether it's another new set of 31'' BFG ATs or another set of Duratracs...
Yeah, they're some pretty good looking tires, I love the sidewall. I can't wait to see how they perform.

Why thank you. I think its a decent look, just not if you have tire coverage laws haha. I need to save up for a matching 5th d window. How much did yours run you?

I got them from 4 wheel parts for $196. They're procomp series 96 or something like that. They were having a buy 3 get 1 free deal and $20 shipping that I think ended yesterday. Couldn't pass it up. If you want just one, you could probably get a better deal on summit. Their brand steelie is like $45 right now.

Finished the "cheap and dirty" OBA on the Jeep this morning, doesn't do to bad at all filling up a tire. Mods to that coming later just nice to have an "air compressor" handy all the time while driving.

Who needs a/c in a Jeep anyways right?

Dimmer switch solder points are broken. Heat em back up and you're good.

Got up this morning and decided to find out why the lock actuator in the passenger front door barely works and whines. Before I could get to that, I found that my door chime buzzer was stuck on in a constant long tone. So after looking on the forum, I dug out the red box and pulled the "E" clip and metal disc out of it. Put it all back together and pulled the door panel apart to find out that the lock actuator is crap. I disconnected it so I don't have to listen to it b**** for now. I have a parts door in the backyard. Maybe that one will work?
