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.

Today I decided my spare fog lights are going on top of the bumper. Why not, right?

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
