I know there is a bunch of posts and threads on led bulbs in the stock housings, but I can't seem to find a pic of it comparing or even showing it. Anyone know where one is or have these led bulbd?

http://www.amazon.com/Newsun-Quality...=AJM9X8XCXRL6F

I like the idea but I don't know if I $80 like the idea since I bought the ultra xenon bulbs a year ago and they were $50. I must have been sick when I bought those...

Took an angle grinder to her for the first time.

Still needs a lot of cleaning up and some filing paint etc...

Put it back under the hood. Too many warm start problems from bad grounds.

To put the battery in back, run an actual ground cable up to the block, instead of using the body as a ground for the starter. Use 0 gauge or larger for both the positive and ground runs for the starter. it'll start just fine after that.


Also, guys, the day has come: ARB is starting production (available to order now, part number RD226) on an air locker for the D44a: http://axleboy.com/rd226-new-from-arb/

Thanks. I know how to fix it, I just haven't. And the warm start issues weren't debilitating, just annoying.
