I dont have them hooked up. But when I did, yes. I had the leds and halos alternate flash with the turn signals.

Most likely the grids have lost continuity and part or the metallic strips that are there most likely chipped. You can check them for resistance to see. Car stores sell diy repair kits for like $10. Some have good luck and others dont.

In the past couple weeks- installed my rola roof rack and put my inno snowboard rack on that (fits nice) installed leds in the interior, replaced brake light switch (sometimes the brake lights stayed on when i got out), installed the wood trim bezel with ash tray and matching ac bezel (previous bezel broke because of a bad jeep design and also the heated seat switch brike), installed heatertreater.net dual acz fix (my blendor heater treater broke). I'm not happy with the heater treater design and would rather install another blendor one every 2 years. While in there replaced 2 burnt out bulbs on my ac control area (another great chrysler approved design).Also installed new tre, and kor bushings in the trac bar(adjusted the trac bar after driving with it not centered since the lift install 2 years ago. Its still not centered, but close enough), got alignment, tightened steering box and tre bolt (steering was sloppy), secured ebay air intake (found it hanging a few time with engine sucking unfiltered air). Also replaced rear wiper blade (another wtf chrysler design). I did fill her with gas today.

To do: add foam to one blend door so it seals fully, then caulk the area shut
Figure why the battery drains sooooo fast (maybe the leds, maybe a short)?,
shorten tracbar 1/4" (hopefully in the next year),
replace hatch glass supports
Wash and wax
Fix engine noise issue while using bluetooth system

So, totally forgot to mention that it was the front windshield defroster.

I took it on a 2.5 hour road trip/sales call. All seems to check out at highway speed. Drives just like it used to. And it was a unusually nice day here in MN.

Happy thanksgiving everyone.

Well today I installed a 3" IRO lift with Addco Rear sway bar, Bar-Pin eliminators, front sway bar links, upgraded doetsch dt8000 shocks, tenneco heavy duty steering stabilizer. Got my stock wheels put on 265/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs for my Canadian Winter ahead =D Took 4 hours from wheels off to wheels on. Didnt run into any problems, all went smoothly. Had an alignment done and good to go! It drives like a dream now, 10x better then stock. Still feel all the power in that V8.
(hope these pics work)
