Well today I went to my local pick and pay and got a cigarette lighter socket to replace my flaky one. It would only work with the lighter in it and nothing else. I would plug my phone in to charge it up and it wouldn't work I tried my Actron OBD I-II reader and it woud not work but plug in the lighter and it works! Weird! I replaced the socket and it's now fully functional, I also found a Weathertech Cargo Bed Liner. Found it in a new just added ZJ. There was nothing that I could see wrong with this ZJ body in great shape looked like you could have driven it out of the yard, only thing I can think of is the engine was blown or tranny and transfer case was dead or something. Got home and looked up the cargo bed liner online and found they are expensive buggers! they cost 110.00 and I only paid 10.00 for it, if it is nice tomorrow I'll install it.

Just another option for you guys in case you didn't know (although that is pretty slick if you already have a garmin).

Get a obdii bluetooth adapter (they're like $45 on amazon I think) and get the 'torque' app on your phone if you have an android phone. Pretty much does the same thing.

Do you have a thread? It'd be awesome if you'd do a write up on the paint job.

I should do this when I get around to finishing my Jeep. It's just rattle canned though.

1. Clean
2. Tape off



3. Sanded with 220grit
4. 3 coats of primer



5. Wet sand with 1500 grit till smooth
6. wash
7. dry
8. 3 coats paint





Wish I was already done but it turned cold out and I wasn't sure how it would dry in the cold.
Clear coat or glossy finishes are a whole different ball game that takes a ton of skill.

Now go to your local pawn shop and buy a fake badge and go play cop, lol. We had a guy here that was pulling people over with one of these lights. He got in a little trouble.
