Yeah, but then I woudn't have an excuse to get the head unit I want

The program I wrote was literally 10 lines of code, including closing braces as lines, and should work, so long as I can figure out whether or not the uno's outputs need to be grounded to the board. If they do, not a big deal, just a slightly bigger pain in the ***. And better than spending money. I had this Uno just laying around after I discovered it didn't have enough power for a project I wanted to use it for.

In other news, I have a set of spare factory fog lights I pulled off the parts Jeep back in January. Where on my ZJ should I put them? I already have a set in the OEM spot.

Promptly went for a drive to dry it all off, then got yelled at by some lady because she thought I was going fast. Just because I let the engine rev out a bit before getting to 15mph doesn't mean I'm going fast

If you've got a gas tank skid and decide to remove it, shoot me a PM.

Ok. In the dub, the tank is strapped to the skid and the skid is then bolted to the frame. So if you drop the skid, you drop the tank
