Attempted to resurrect my VIC to no avail (burnt spots on the board), but I did re solder the joints on my headlight switch which will hopefully fix my flickering dash lights.

Drove it down to shreveport to pick up some parts for my buddy's cj and my old Toyota pickup to get them back on the road. First time pulling a trailer with the Jeep and I was surprised how well it handled it

Anyone else waiting for this update?

Sorry locker in a d30lp scares me, especially if you have the 249. I won't lock my d35, asking for lots o' trouble.
