We ran the wires for the LED's along the passenger side fender into the cab and mounted a flip switch next to the shifter. Did you drill a hole in the radiator support to gain access to the adjustment screw?

Nope. Theyre easy to install so I just took one out, counted the turns. Got it to where I wanted, then did it to the other side

Couldn't agree more. Such a marketing scam! If only people actually researched before they buy a car thinking its so good for the environment.

Just got back from a weekend of hard wheeling.
While out there I was comparing my tires to what some of the other jeeps where running.

These won't fit on my ZJ, but I like them!


Now these would fit my ZJ with a little trimming and best of all you don't need to air them down.

I'll be painting the grille. Believe me, I hate chrome, but these headlights were one piece, which is the only reason I bought them.

My power steering pump took a dump on me this afternoon. Around 4 o'clock I had to hunt down some parts

Started working on it at 6 and was done at 9 tonight.

New pump, pulley, serpentine belt and high pressure hose

Well, this all didn't happen today but over the past few weeks. First a drunk driver totaled my black '94 Limited. It was parked out front of my house in it's usual spot. Got more than I figured out of it, over $3k. Last Monday, managed to get a really good deal on a '96 Orvis. Not a spot of rust & it has an 87k mile motor with freshly rebuilt tranny.

Sucks though because I'm finding myself doing the same things all over again ! ! Plans for the Orvis are a 3.5" lift with Duratracs or Cooper STT 32's and some rocker guards.
