Haha. I am just nervous. I have no idea what to think about those lights! I checked the lines and everything that I could just now and everything looks to be in order. Fuses are fine. It drives perfectly except that 4low doesnt work and I can switch to the terrains that do not require 4L but I have no idea if it really is enabled. The EVIC shows it changing but then also says "Esc snow" or something to that effect. aaaaahhhh!!!!! *sigh*

Yeah not Getting into 4low is not encouraging lol. Get ahold of Rocky Road, I'm sure they ran into plenty of lights designing this kit hopefully they will have answers. I'm thinking it's something to do with the axles being reinstalled that seem to be the main part of the drivetrain that would set off any lights. GodSpeed on the fix!

The shop told me that they called RRO first and they were not any help. However, I am going to call myself Monday. I was not happy with the shop. If anything needs to be repaired I sure hope they pay for it.

Volant Intake Installed!! & chrome fog Bezels xD
The rubber grommets gave me a hassle that's about it sounds great feels crisper and quicker at least until the CPU makes its adjustments

Adding my CB antenna, used a mount from http://www.saguaro4xcomponents.com/i...vab4hha9tq4286
Breeze was an install heres the pics use a Firestick antenna

Looks awesome. Where is the CB mounted and wired?

Also, I saw it a while ago on another WK on here but I cannot seem to find the thread even with searching. They were mounts for auxiliary lights on the rear similar to the antenna mount you have (made me think it was the same company) and the OP is using Rigid Duallys. Rear mounted light brackets but allow the liftgate to be opened. Thought you may know.

I'm hoping to add 33's haven't decided on a brand yet, call me crazy but I'm kinda digging on the stock tire look for now with the lift. My jeep only has1300 miles on it so tires are practically new, so I could wait a bit longer XD & yes Durango is amazing came here from Texas to avoid some of the city life, enjoy the Mountian sports & focus on Producing Music. Cheers!
