Google is much better at finding things on this forum than the forum search. I can't remember the last time I used that.

Agreed. Most of the motivation behind my post was so I can avoid using the LMGTFY link when people start new threads about something that's been beaten harder than a red-headed step child on a dead horse

Ordered some fog light bulbs for the fog light housings I picked up over the weekend for the 9'er. $5.13 shipped for a pair of 55W Hellas... not too shabby.

Finally pulled the VIC and resoldered. Took the XM antenna cable back out and routed it *behind* the right side lower dash, instead of *through* it(figured this out after trying to remove right side lower dash for VIC access. Replaced burned out bulbs in heater controls. Installed modified cup holder on right side of center console, Now I have a place for my beer.....errrrr?....soda, yeah, I meant soda, and for the cupholder mounted power supply I use to power up the laptop. Working on relocating the addition 3 outlet 12 volt power supply. Had it mounted under the ashtray, but it was tight and tended to shift the center console backwards a bit. Pulled off the rear tailgate trim to investigate the non working hatch release, had an incident with a trailer that wasn't safety pinned, and the tongue smacked the tag, hard. Broke the plastic insert and apparently sheared the switch. Junkyard run this weekend.
On top of this I replaced a radiator in a friends Taurus....not fun.

Yeah haha he did get it flexed out:



But ended up driving forward and it landed on the fender. I am assuming he was trying to land it on the slider. It ended up bending up the fender and pinched and snapped the line off the caliper. Had to do the vice grips and zip tie method to get it through the rest of the day haha

No problem and good to meet you guys too, always cool to meet new people. We will definitly be around, I work at IRO so if you are ever out that way I will be there monday, wed, friday, I still work part time tues,thurs and saturday at my other job, but yeah once I get my next XJ built I will be wheeling all the time. And I will see if someone has an open spot in their rig, I might tag along, or maybe have my ZJ going by then and wheel it out there!

Funny story too, awhile back I saw you driving down 42 and snapped a pic with my phone of your jeep haha, ironic we ended up wheeling with ya
