You sure you jus didn't have your high beams on when you were checking the bulbs???? They should be wired to cut out while brightes are on! My 2 cents's.....

Debating on whether or to keep the front bumper cover on.

I will say, the Jeep runs about 10* cooler with it off hahhah

Also been having a fog light problem on the passenger side. Drivers side works just fine.

Just bought a test light and Grounded on the factory ground, touch power wire and test light lights up....

What does that mean?

Putting my front drive shaft back in I broke the head off one of the strap bolts at the front diff yoke. Spent the better half of the morning drilling it out. By some miracle of god the threads were still good. Had another bolt laying around from an old DS. It's back together now. That was fun.
