Keeping with my theme of making the buttons work I programmed the door opener buttons on the visor so I can open the garage door. Was a pain to do the rolling codes program on the opener but it worked!

I think you can get them from kolak for a couple of dollars a piece.

Got the lightbar all wired up and painted the mount metallic gray to match my wheels.

Started the first round of pb blasting in preparation for the new short arms. Also tightened the ever living snot out of the front track bar again. I can't understand why it keeps coming loose.

That is funny, I can't barely loosen mine! Probably all the rust on the bolts.

FYI, as far as I know, Chrysler isn't going to touch any modified vehicle regarding this "structural upgrade." So, if your suspension is modded, your SOL. Quite honestly, if you're really a Mopar fan, you shouldn't take advantage of them anyhow, especially if you already have a hitch. They're shelling out a ton of money to get this taken care of and it's not even an NHTSA recall. I give them credit for that, but don't take advantage of it. This will, even if it's only temporary, hurt the company financially. You better believe their stocks will be affected by their published financial records showing their net amount after this all goes through. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to be partially responsible for that. /rant about everyone wanting their free trailer hitch

I only plan on having them verify my Mopar hitch is still in good shape.

Does the inner Fender have to come out to tighten the antenna mount?

You have to remove the inner fender. Make sure you get it all the way back in when you're done. Otherwise, you'll open up a way for salt and other crap to get into your rockers and rust them.

Crap. Should be fun to do in a small one car apartment garage in the winter.
