Yea thanks, I pulled the fuses to have them tested but they were covered in corosion. Cleaned them off and put them in and out a few times and they worked.


We are probably going to make it up for crawl for the cure in october. Nothing hardcore but I should have a rear bumper for then. The stock carrier crackedin the pines and we put our spare in the back seat.

Looking good. That cage is awesome. One of these days we'll get a JF group together for Rausch and we can wheel together.

Thanks, the 2.5 works just fine on the trails, but on the highway it leaves alot to be desired.
