Well not today but in the last few days.

I finished my tire carrier and got the tire mounted.



And then hooked my mechanical coolant temp back up this time to the upper heater hose, and it is working nicely.

Got my new decals on today



I only had the one original faded blue sport sticker on the passenger side so I got new green ones custom


I also got OFF ROAD RECOVERY TEAM made up because I saw someone on here with one like that and I just really liked it.


Oh, I also drove it to school and back earlier

my dad and i had a conversation about this, but i believe if you take the headlights out, you can undo the latches from the insdie. I've never done it, but he did it to mine before I started driving it. worth a shot.

I converted all the domes to LEDs to save battery and also get that cool "LED Blue" look. Its awesome but its going to take some getting used to. I didnt buy pre-assembled bulbs or anything. I took some small squares of circuit board and wired up 6 LEDs per board with resistors and solered it to the existing wiring, popped the boards up in the casing with some hot glue and it looks awesome!

One per axle right?

all I did was drive around, and when I got back I parked and walked past a rav4.. this is all the flexing it will ever do.
