And the steering wheel controls work.

Marathoning a bunch of little things tonight.
  • changed my transfer case fluid
  • FINALLY fixed the last (rear hatch) red light


  • gonna rewire my rock lights so they actually function
  • need to change my spark plugs and tranny oil.
If I get everything done in a timely manner, I'll reward myself by playing with redding out the instrument cluster. Man I wish that pizza would hurry up and show up???

I'm finally almost all-red!


For those who are curious why I care, red light preserves your night vision much better than white or (even more so) blue light does. So you can turn the rig on at night while camping and not go blind. I'm still not 100% red, though.


Tomorrow, I think I'm gonna change my spark plugs and tranny fluid like I was supposed to tonight

Something that'll help me finish the effect.

How do you still feel about the 245/70/17 choice? Do you think you could have got away with the inch taller (31.7") 245/75/17 at 3"?

Really tough call....I like my 70s, but I would be tempted to get bigger ones next time. I have a friend with a Laredo who is running 75s with a BB and he seems to be fine. I dunno.....

More like wait for spring, and to see how healthy the money tree is looking....

EDIT: which actually probably works out to the same thing seeing as we have a wheeling trip planned??

What model receiver is that? I've got the Infinity Gold system and the CD changer broke years ago. I'm thinking of tearing it out and replacing my factory radio. Do the steering controls work out of the box or did you have to do any modding?

Great looking rig BTW. I'm about to put on my 3" IRO lift this weekend and have tires waiting to be installed immediately thereafter.
