Finally took the doors off Rubi tonight and the wife and I went for a long cruise. Stopped in Cobb Island and had a beer and came out and it was dark and my headlights didn't work. Well just the low beams didn't work. both of them were out. Hi beams worked great I just pissed everyone off. Left my cell phone home and all my tools cause it was supposed to be a quick trip. Won't do that again. So I am guessing it is the fuse or relay. Any comments....

Just received my new seat belt extenders and waiting on a new headlight plug. Found out where Rubi was leaking. It was leaking from the plastic piece that was glued to the door opening. Part of it came up and it leaked in at the bottom of the door. Think its fixed, we will see.

I replaced that plastic bottom door piece on the tub and it def fixed the problem!! The seatbelt extenders work but I really don't like the angle they put the seatbelt at. gonna hopefully do an oil change tonight. Looking at replacing my front bumper because I know of a mutual friend that got into an accident and his bumper was beefier than mine and he has partial paraylsis. Maybe I am a worry wart IDK

Let me know if I can help you clear some garage space and take that back seat off your hands

Well I am getting within a month of retiring out of the Air Force and finding another job and was nervous with two car payment. We moved to VA and since then I haven't really drove rubi at all. So on New Years eve we traded Rubi and my 11 Tundra in on a 14 Jeep JK... Damn I love it and it gets 20 mpg!!! Can you say there will be a new build when I get a new Job!!!!
