MORE work to the Jeep today. Took two steps in the right direction today yet took one step back. Here is the story:

The good (I guess):

1. Got the Jeep inspected woohoo. To bad I had to pick up stock headlights to swap in for it to pass. (But whatever it was 50 bucks and I cleaned them up really nicely and they look pretty much brand new, going to keep them if I decide to go back one day or maybe a projector retrofit!!) I also cleaned my aftermarket housings too and they look much better.

2. Ditched the HID fog lights, and the HID relay harness for the fogs. The lights were a PIA and the harness was a POS. Getting my money back for both from DDM tuning. When I was taking out my aftermarket headlights and ballasts today. I noticed from a year ago that the ballasts made back them were soooo much nicer then the ballasts and bulbs I ordered in January. I guess quality is going down hill again... =/ So I ditched all that and put in Sylvania Silverstars 9005's in the fogs. They are 4100K color temperature and 60 watts. They do very nicely. I also cleaned the fog light lenses and they look better now too.

The Bad:

1. The rear axle is leaking on the seals for the axle shaft. Both need replaced... There goes the rest of my cash! Thank you Jeep. God only knows how much that is going to cost me.

My aftermarket housings won't pass and the HID's wont pass. Because VA is gay like that... I did not want to get my friend in trouble for slipping them by.

First page of the build. Jeep should be snow covered! I did not take any with the stockers today =/

The Mercedes and the BMW get garage priority! Lol Poor Jeep. Then again, I am sure that both of those cars are combined are probably worth 7-8 times what the Jeep is worth!

I don't think tint is on the inspection list in VA.

That's a really interesting test for a roll over.

headlights... I am not paying 150 or 200 for halo's.. also I need fogs. My jeep came with the appearance package and I'm pretty sure it was suppose to have fogs, but i know someone prior to me who owned her had an accident. body works not noticable but if you look real close you can kinda tell. Carfax came back with nothing before i bought it and it took me atleast 3 months to see it while clay baring. I first thought I had some chemical reaction with the previous wax and then the clay bar. haha

Can anybody confirm that the appearance group came with fogs?
