Buffed my headlights today. I work at a dealership so I had one of the detailers give me a hand

I love the results. So I decided to super clean the whole jeep.

I'll check it out. It's just two screws. Probably tomorrow on my day off.

ya, i pulled the housings and swapped them and the drivers side worked. so the connections inside the housing was messed up. pulled it apart and saw a burnt part in the plastic. idk how, but i just bent it to contact the spots and called it golden for now.

and thanks

That's no biggie. How are the 3.73 gears on 33s? And is your 44a a open diff or limited slip?

33s aren't bad. But it is nice to have the 4.7. On minor hills it kicks out of over drive pretty fast

And yes they I believe they are open, perfect if you want to throw an Aussie locker in there. I'll double check when I get home.
