installed my rear jks track bar, holy ****, hardest single thing ive done on the jeep, 2 bolts in and out, but no.

broke 2 torx sockets, then welded an old socket to the button head, snapped the socket, so then i cut the head of the bolt and chipped it out with an air hammer, it was so rust welded to the bushing my 600ftlb impact couldn't budge it, finally spun it loose with a 42'' breaker bar, and hammered it through with a 10lbs sledge.

then after i got it out, i needed to keep the nut from it since it has a lip that sits in the hole, took 45 minutes in the vise with a breaker bar and the blu wrench.

and even with the bolt out the track bar was so jammed in the little pocket it to me 45 minutes to get it out.

anyways 30minute job took 7 hours, biggest nightmare ever. this jeep is going to turn me into a drunk.

Installed some white Halo gauge overlays. Wire them into the cluster so when I turn on the lights or they turn on from the auto feature they will come on so I don't have to worry about a switch

Sorry about the crappy pictures

here is what they look like during the day


and here is what they look like at night when lights are on

Took apart and cleaned my memory mirrors, no more crazy angles! Also tightened the screws on my driver's door speaker (it rattled), took a couple of twigs out of my blower motor (more of a PITA to remove than I was lead to believe), and replaced the bearing for my idler pulley. That's all of the little stuff done until my Kolak ignition, glass headlights, and TREs arrive.

I used it to pull the boat today, I drove 14 miles to the boat launch and back and burned 10 bucks in gas. I can drive my bike to and from work(33 miles rnd trip) for 5 days on 10 bucks. I'm starting to remember why I bought the bike.

I bought it on thursday. Had a few quirks. The sunroof was inoperational, the headlights were funky. One was on high beam and the other on low. Then when you switched to high beam they would switch.. I figured someone wired a pigtail in wrong. Factory looking wiring in them. Took the bulbs out and found 1 9004 and 1 9007. Replaced them both to the correct 9004 and that problem was solved. Took the headliner out to survey the problem with the roof. I first found that the electric plug was removed from the switch. After I found out why. The motor works fine however the cables that drive the roof are screwed. Left it apart for now till I can find out options for it.

How bright are those at night? I would love to have some but I'm afraid they would be really bright in your face and make it harder to see out the windshield.

The are fairly bright but honestly I dont think they are to bright to cause any issues. The ones that I have has a little switch thing that you can actually switch them to a greenish color as well and also has a roll wheel on it as well that allows you to dim them if needed. How I wired them I can just dim them with my dimmer switch for my lights but i probably wont really use that as im not sure if it will cause any harm. so if I need to dim them i'll just use the switch thing it came with.
