Guy at work told me about that, I did buy a gallon of the "purple power" because autozone had a special for 1gal and get shop towels for free . It didn't work too bad. Just a pain having to go through and fix all the PO's mistakes and lack of maintenance but I did get it for 300$ so whats one to expect

OT- Drove it around this morning just because I wanted to go drive it. Hopefully Pick-N-Pull adventure later today for some tow hooks

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

Went to the shop this morning to get the freon drained out of my a/c system and the guy said its bone dry. So since it doesn't want to hold a charge for more than 2 months, I said **** it, bought a bypass pulley for $40 and called it a day.

My dad had one layin around the shop and i asked to use it but it was missing the ground, it was snapped off. I like that style more than the one i have now because mine sticks out like a sore thumb...

I might change it later on tho.

Drive around buddy found a trail so we explored. Made a short video driving down it and took a few pictures. Too bad there has been no rain lately or it might have been better.

Picked up 5 gallons of 80w-90 gear oil. Have to get some friction modifier for the rear LSD.

Got stuck with water to the windshield, pretty sure I killed my alternator, need to remember to turn off the Efan before crossing, and amazed the jeep can idle with the exhaust over a foot under water and keep it clear of clogging.

On the fence...35" MTs on my 4.5" lift, or front locker first? I'm still on brand new BFG ATs 31x10.5, as I've had them on other trucks and they've never let me down.

Just took the lower dash out. Drill a 1/2 hole for the switch put it in wire it up and call it good. I'm going to upgrade my lights and get relays

Nick, I believe you said in another post that the switch is a 15amp toggle. Are you running the full power load of your lights thru this switch alone or does the switch control a relay and the relay handles the heavy load. If the switch is carring the full load of the lights on it's own, I would highly reccomend setting up a relay close to the battery and running the lights strait off the relay. Let the switch turn the relay on and off so you dont have that little switch and the wiring working hard and hot increasing the chances of meltdown and failure.
