Installed my new radaitor, waterpump, intake gaskets, timing chain and gears, plugs, wires, cap and rotor, changed oil, and rotated the tires. I started at noon and was cleaned up and done by 10:30 now all I have to do is wash the engine compartment.

With the Jeep 25' feet from a wall, the fogs should be aimed between 1/2" and 2" below the vertical centerline of the lights, depending on their height on the Jeep (the higher they are, the more they need to angle down).

Idk what it is but that kinda sounds weird and imprecise.... There isn't a general height from ground or anything?

I aim my fogs up at the sky so the UFOs can see me coming

"aut viam inveniam aut faciam"

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Aiming to a specific height from the ground is too imprecise, as if the lights are up a bit on the bumper, they'd be aimed really low, yet if they were down low, they'd be aimed up and blinding people. Basically, you want to measure the height of the middle of the light (from the ground), and then use that to aim the lights just slightly downwards.

I put mine right in the back window of the ****er in front of me. Just kidding. This is what I used to aim mine. It seems like it's exactly what comptiger5000 was saying.

OT: I need to find some time to work on the Jeep. The longer I drive it without working on it, the more stuff I find that needs fixing. Todays find, a small slit in the weather stripping under the rear hatch. Water intrusion!!! Yay! It's perfect for ****ing up my brand new carpet. I filled her up today. $73 for 18 gallons of the good stuff.

March 2014 GCOTM. 1998 Deep Slate 5.9
On the Jeep:Hot intake, 52mm TB, Summit 8mm wires, catch can, 703s, insulated fuel rails, indexed Champions, Bilstein 4600s, Eibach lowering springs, Moog SS, Ironman mounts, Lotek 2GP, lots of gauges, sparkly paint.
In the garage: M1 4bbl
In the works: Addco/Hellwig sway bars, nitrous, full polly bushings, full exhaust, data logging, billet UD pulleys

That guy is pretty much the man as far as lighting info goes. He's very no-nonsense, only deals in lighting that WORKS, rather than lighting that looks cool. That's been exactly my theory with the lighting on my Jeep.

This truck has been abused for years for I figured it was time to redo the headliner and carpet myself.

3M headliner Glue $18.00






Finished

Had a bad leak from my ac dripping in the floor board for several years. So I decided to clean my carper with a hose and shout. Let dry and started to dye it.
