My EGR module came in and i installed it today.
It corrected my speedometer, ESP and BAS errors, and shifting points. Also, reverse mirror tilt and one-touch lane change for the turn signals.Im very happy with the way it all came out.

Can anyone tell me (I know this is probably stupid) how lights are mounted and what the best kind to get are?

By changing the shifting points and errors in ESP, the EGR module has improved my gas-mileage by about 2 mpg

This is one of, if not THE, best looking "mild build" WK's I've ever seen. You have damn good taste for a young guy.

I have my spare on the roof of mine and I hate it. Killer on gas mileage as well. However Yakima makes a nice tie down set-up to work with their racks. The difficulty with roof mounted lights is getting the wireing harness inside the cab.

I think im gunna skip the tire on the roof idea. If you have pictures though post a link to them so i can convince myself (or make myself want to for that matter). Im still debating on circular or rectangular lights though.
