Did this the other day forgot to post it here Did a little work on the Jeep. Its a 40 inch dual row led light bar. Wired it up with a hella waterproof relay and a wireless relay used as the switch. With this setup, I have two remote fobs to turn it on, and I can use my extra 2 homelink buttons for the off and on button. This thing is ridiculously bright.

New valvoline fluid in both the front and rear diffs. Kind of a PITA to fill the rear diff with the Addco sway bar in the way but figured it out eventually.

Amazon had the best price. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00480N18G/..._M3T1_ST1_dp_1

Took some Googling as they're not called "HIR2" by name. Here's where I first found some info: http://store.candlepower.com/hirlighting.html

And here's how to modify the tabs so they'll fit in our 9006 housing: http://store.candlepower.com/mohirbuba.html

That is an excellent idea. I may need to steal that one in the future

Taking a quick trip to the junkyard today. I attempted to replace my clock spring this past Sunday and was completely unsuccessful. I ended up separating the wheel from the steel hub that's pressed into it, then cut the hub in half with a dremel.

I broke one 2 ton gear puller and only managed to completely destroy the back side of the wheel using another 2 ton puller. Hopefully I have better luck removing one in the junkyard after work.

Wanna grab me one whole you're there, too? I've needed a clockspring for a while. They're only $67 online, too. Man I'm lazy. Good luck swapping them out.

Sure, they're pretty cheap. The wheel itself is only like $6 since it's half off day.

I know what you mean about the clock spring, I was being a cheap *** and pulled one off a WJ in the boneyard to use in mine. That steering wheel came off without out any issue, so I figured it would take me twenty minutes or so to do mine at home.

I was dead wrong, almost 2 hours later all I had was a destroyed wheel. I'd use the wheel from the Jeep I got the clockspring, but it was a tan interior

Should have put some under the bumper, too, in the air dam, to protect the bottom of the condenser.

I replaced my clock spring , which did NOT fix my airbag issue, so I suspect it's still good. For $10 and shipping, I will send it to you, if you want to try it. I never had any problems with my steering wheel buttons, nor horn.
