Marvel Mystery Oil piston soak on my 4.7 HO. Installing new spark plugs in the morning after I finish the soak.

I installed the following in my 04 special ed.

Kenwood kdc bt555u
Rockford fostgate 551s
Rockford fostgate 4600x
2 Rockford Fostgate he 12s
Stock rear door speakers
Memphis audio 6.1 in front doors
Memphis audio 2.75 dash speakers

Sounds pretty darn good to me. I'm really liking the Bluetooth audio streaming. I didn't think the sound quality would be that good but it really isn't bad at all. I'll probably replace the sick rear door speakers eventually but right now they are doing ok.

Next thing I want to do is add a steering wheel audio interface to get back my volume buttons. I never knew how much I used them until today.

Replaced the throttle position sensor, that solved a few problems (wouldn't idle right, kept down shifting randomly and check engine light was on). Replaced the socket for one brake light. Fixed the wiring to one fog light and since I was on a roll I tackled my cruise control problem, just had to replace a vacuum line. Tomorrow its time to bleed the brakes and order a new driver door window regulator.

12 Buttons, the relay box can provide 10amps/channel but maximum of 40 amps/row (the two rows are independent, but have the same relay box but have separate power sources)
Upper (closest to instruments) will be powered on with ignition (tips where I can find a hot with acc wire under the steering wheel that can activate a relay ?)
The lower is on all the time
Upper will be used to control extra lights relays.
It was really cheap!

Looking at headlights and was hoping to pick up some Sylvania Silverstar Ultras but apparently they're not made in our size. Tempted to try the 9006st and see it they'll fit.

For what it's worth, IMO those aren't worth the extra $$$ you spend on them. They're marginally brighter at best, and they don't last as long. They can claim 50% brighter or whatever it is, but I put a set of those in my wife's car and the only difference I could tell is that the light was a slightly different shade......a little more blue in it than standard headlights, but they didn't shine any further than the standard lights and didn't give any wider beam or anything like that.

IMO You'd be better off spending the money on either re-polishing your existing lenses or buying all new ones...I did that to mine and holy smokes does it ever look better!

I've used them for years in other vehicles and have always had good results. My route to and from work is unlit back roads and side streets with random deer. So anything brighter than OEM works for me. My lenses are good still and I just replaced the housings in my zj. Just read a few threads about the hid retrofit. That'd be awesome but I don't have the patience to do something like that lol.

Wife was feeling down due to noisy kids, elderly parent woes, and general boredom on a do-nothing Saturday so I suggested we load up in the WJ and I took her for a little spin on a local light trail. Plenty of mud, a few rocks and some nasty deep ruts in the road full of red muddy water. The Jeep handled it perfectly and got a little muddy in the process and the wife enjoyed herself and is now a calm mama. LOL She wants to know when we can go back now.
