just so everyone knows changing out the head light switch completely sucks.. I dont know if my methods were correct but I took out my
instrument gauges and approached it from the top.

Not much is new. I am changing careers into telecommunications and I have been traveling a lot. As far as the XJ goes. My sister didn't want it so my dad has been driving it and fell in love. We are talking about ordering a lift kit soon. We just installed a roof rack I got on a trade from a fellow JF member. Ill get a pic up here in a sec

Had to get her towed home last night. The key got stuck in the lock cylinder and the jeep kept going into "alarm" security mode. A bit ridiculous and annoying. Atleast it's an easy fix. I wish the jeep didn't even have an alarm since I only have a key and not a clicker
