Well, it looks like my photobucket account got to big for itself. Any suggestions of other hosting sites?

Yep. Third one is working fine. Gotta love a free replacement with no questions asked.

Yeah, I think I do. It is the switch for the LED light bar. I put in a switch that I found on ebay. The picture didn't have it, but when it showed up at my door, there was an indicator light. The light stays on even if the jeep isn't running. I need to swap switches, swap the + to a keyed source or just keep turning the battery off when I leave the jeep (which is what I have been doing).

Thanks.

This is from some urban exploring we did this weekend (and a flickr test).

I use Flickr but have a few issues with it.

1. It's not easy to get the actual image url of the stuff you upload. I have to find the picture in my gallery, click it, then choose the size I want etc just to be able to right click it and copy the direct image link. Almost every other site provides a quick link to paste into forums, including the [IMG] tags etc. If you use flickr's link for this is spams a bunch of other crap along with it.

2. It's cheap, which is good, but if you let your sub run out they hold your pictures past the most recent 300 (I think? Maybe 200.) and won't let you access them unless you pay again.

3. They move their files around a lot I've noticed with disregard for keeping the original URL's the same. I'm sure they have some kind of system or process that keeps everything in the interface on their site workings and changes those links, but a lot of images I have posted have broken over time because the URL's changed.

Pretty much the only reason I use it is because they have a good API which lets developers make good apps for it. It takes me literally ten seconds to upload every photo I took with my phone during a day of working on the jeep.

Jeep is looking good though! Mine should be back in working shape and regeared soon. Going to PA to pick up a replacement rear housing Thursday, then I'm going to start sourcing parts and housings for a ton swap.

Looking for: 03-06 interior plastic trim. PM me.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I am trying to get one measurement before I order the MC TB (unless it doesn't fit). Then hopefully some dirtier, off camber pictures soon to test out the new ride height better than the LA streets already are. On a side note with all the time I was devoting to the jeep, I have been using this time lately to ride bikes to win a weight loss bet with a friends. I have been averaging 25-35 miles a week (with day breaks between each ride)..... hence the urban exploring picture above - finding more route.

A couple years ago I won a weight loss bet and did it riding my bike. I lost 63 lbs in 3 months, and rode over a 1000 miles. I hate my bike still..... haha.
