I was thinking about the LED dash lights too. There are five illumination bulbs in the cluster. Pop the cluster off, replace the five 194/168 bulbs on the backside, and that's it.

I just swapped a 97 header panel and front fenders onto my MJ yesterday.

I installed a brand spankin new glass pack on my 95 XJ , ripped out the catalyitic converter, and ran some tubing to dump it out in front of the rear axle. It sounds badass and then I just drove around and enjoyed the new sound .

The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the ability to reach it.

I dropped ya a pm.

The longest part of this swap was taking the dash apart. *stupid 95 column*

When they first kick on they look slightly blue but then they seem to even out, or I just get use to em.

The led's were 12$ for a 5pack off ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/5x-19...2781QQtcZphoto

I'm going to convert all the dash backlighting to LEDs since they are all burned out anyway. I do need to find unbroken light sockets as they all snapped when i untwisted em to replace the bulb.

discovered that the reason my bottom fog lights were so crappy is because they are completely filled with mud and water. ...like you can actually see it sloshing around inside

Put in a new Alternator. Decided to stop working 45minutes into an 8hour trip back to BC.

Also decided to do the rockercover gasket since i was at the parts store. . .

Tommorow I have to go back to the partsstore and get a heater valve and an upper rad hose...
Old brittle plastic
Over tightened screw clamps

PS: why does everyone always insist on switching to stupid screwclamps when ever they put in new hoses Just buy the proper tool for the hoseclamps
