Christmas tree lights cut into strips of 5 lights and wired in parallel, will run off 12 volts. I did 5 runs of 5 for 25 total lights. I interrupted the wire to my fog lights so I can turn them on and off from the cab. Before anyone freaks out, I don't run them on the road and even if someone did, they're Christmas tree lights so they're not bright at all.

Got the tech stuff from this page:

I'd imagine it's legal as long as they're amber lights... My buddy had an amber light bar on the top of his Charger that he made look like a cop car. He was able to drive with them on, legally. He did get pulled over once and the cop asked him if he was trying to impersonate a cop. Obviously he said no; the cop let him go. I know laws vary from state to state, but if you want to drive with them on, it's something to check into.

There's a million reasons why it's illegal here in MA but I figure if I do not turn them on the highway or in towns I know the cops have almost nothing to do, I should be OK. In my 'hood the police are busy with actual crime and won't bother with some guy with a lighted wreath on the grill of his Jeep. I actually trimmed the lower bows to make sure there was nothing obscuring the plate and having the lights on a switch means I can kill them in an instant if I decide to.

I Never like to heat any tightened nut or bolt, I always thought WD40 was the **** till I tried PB Blast if a 2 foot breaker bar and a 4 foot persuation bar wont do it then my 390lbs of force will break it loose or off (on a side note pissed I had to pay 20$ for a 36mm)
zach yeah I have broke a few breaker bars in my time

yesterday, the jeep got seafoamed, iac cleaned and got a new battery. she's happy, but still not idling correctly.
I didn't think of the sanding idea, but eh, I already have the new ones here. At $57 for all of them, I think I did okay The Mothers kit I purchased a while back didn't come with fine-grit sand paper, just the compound, buffer ball, and cloth.

Knocked out a few things over the last couple of days while my wife and daughter were out spending all the money ...

This morning / afternoon ...
Motor Mounts - original with 245K. Used my new 3T Jack/Stands from the 5am Black Friday gig at Sears (also received Standard and Metric Gear Wrenches ... man those are handy) The ladies were smart in having me look at the ads Thanksgiving night to see if anything was in "need" ... though I am sure my couple of hundred didn't touch their total number.
You guys were right ... Driver's side was a bit tough ... though it helped me work off a lot of "issues" while my Hawks were brutalized by Mizzou. TV in the garage helps assists the "multi-tasking."
While the box and intake hose off ... cleaned throttle body and IAC.

Wednesday night ...
Took all the plastic out of the wells (primed and rubber coated them while out)
Addressed some minor rust ... then rubber coated.
Replaced plastic ... looks great. Will see how long it looks that nice.
