What did I do? I made sure the trickle charger was plugged in. I haven't driven it since last week, but I'll drive it tomorrow
There is a switch to shut it off when you are driving

Yeah you can shut it off. It looks cool though. Like if you get a real small bass note it dosnt go all the way around. It's like a neon light. It looks good

Adjusted my throttle cable. What a difference


But I noticed today, sitting in my room I have to install the following:

Front skid plate
Front brand new OEM tow hooks
99+ intake
"703" injectors
"V8" complete tie rod swap
Trans Cooler
Radiator
Water Pump

Still need to buy a header from a TJ to build my custom Y set up exhaust.

I ordered a set of rear adjustable upper arms from IRO. I don't know how long it'll be until I actually get them on, but at least I'll have them. I was debating between Rusty's and IRO. I know IRO is a great company because I've dealt with them a handful of times with excellent customer service. I wanted the Rusty's arms because they have the line mounts on them for the e-brake. I emailed them to ask them a question and the response I got was not personalized and just didn't seem professional. I also read mediocre reviews on their products and customer service so I figured that IRO would definitely be the way to go. Hopefully I'll be able to kill the slight vibration I have with the new arms by getting my rear pinion angle right.

Squazz, the attachment lets me use my jack to lift my truck. With out it I would have to use a bottle jack (or similar product, with wood under it) to get my rig in the air. I have no place to use my hi-lift on my rig with out messing something up. So until I get around to getting real bumpers this will do to change tires.

so you lift it by the wheel put a jack stand/block under the axle then remove the highligt and atachment then change the wheel then lut attachment on lift again remove stand/block then lower to ground and tighten lugs?? seems like more work

Yes, I already had a Hi-lift (a gift) and I have never liked stacking wood just so I could have enough to get the rig in the air. I know this is a stop gap measure but for me it made sense. At lest I won't have to stack wood under the jack....lol
