It was super easy but then again it was my 3rd time doing it.


and it comes with a switch.

But I mean if you know how to wire then it should be easy.

Ill take pics if it will help?

well yesterday me and my friend (with his TJ) changed our diff fluid.

mine was nasty cause I didnt have a breather tube and I think mud and water got in it. but now its all better and I have a breather tube!!!

Oh I also painted my diff color red and made a grenade stencil and painted that on there to.

looks tight as ****.

ill get my pics up later.
