Its a little temp/clock/compass gizmo I picked up off the shelf at Advance for $15. Its a POS honestly, the thermo is very inaccurate and the clock isnt back lit and you can barely see it in the day. I wouldn't buy it again but it goes nice with the aluminum trim.

Rolled her birthday. And also got my front crank seal in today. That'll be coming up shortly. My rolled fenders are just about done, and also 80% sure I'm going to vinyl wrap the jeep.

I have read, everywhere, that the heater control bulbs have to be soldered in. ?? How did you get them in there? I'll take a look, I may already have some of these. I know I have a half dozen PC 74's. It might be, because that I have the Overland, with dual-climate AZC control and the white-faced gauges, that they are different.

Parked it in the garage for the first time since the niner is outside hooked up to our moving trailer. Going to be a long weekend.

Finally finished my heater core, blend door and Evap core replacement. Only took me about 3 weeks. Haha

Noticed a leak...:/

Bottom of the power steering box is covered in **** and it looks like there's some fluid on the oil filter.
Looks like the fluid was yellow that was leaking, no idea what it could be.
My power steering is whining like no other so most likely it's that?

Actually, I looked and I DID buy from superbrightleds.com. Here is my list:

So which part did you use these for? If it is that easy, could you show me which bulbs, on the back of your gauge cluster you replaced, to make your gauges glow blue that way? Also, can you pop out your heater control and show me how you removed and put in the wedge bulbs, if you would, please? I swear, it says on wjjeeps, that they are solder in.

I have the same leak issue too.... started it this (very cold) morning and heard the power steering start to slightly groan. I checked and found essentially the same thing. Thankfully, it appears easy to fix, no? I had it off for my piston replacement a little while ago and it doesn't seem like taking it out and putting a new one in seems too intensive, unless I'm missing something.

Wj Seat Bracket and Axle Assembly

Oh, it's been a fun week for me. lol. My front, driver's seat had been cobbled by a previous owner when the bracket broke in the front. It later broke on the opposite side in the back. And, eventually, it broke again where the cobble was. So I begrudgingly took the seat out and replaced the bracket with an upgrade from www.jeepseatbracket.com. I suspect that will never break again (although the seat itself will wear out).

I also [finally] finished rebuilding the surrogate Dana 30 front end. The only part of that project that was actually difficult was getting the d$#@ crush sleeve to actually start crushing. I bought a 300ft/lb. click style torque wrench and I had to go well beyond when it clicked. In fact, I had to stand on it and kind of hop up and down (and I weigh 200lbs.) But I eventually got the pinion pre-load set to spec after all of the shimming shenanigans. The pinion and ring gear looked like new, so all I did was replace all of the bearings, races and seals. I got lucky and the backlash was within spec on the first try. I expected hours of taking the carriage and pinion out to change shims and putting it all back. Now I just need to weld new spring towers on where the old ones turned to dust in our Michigan winters.

On the dual climate control they are soldered in.

Was looking into getting O2 sensors replaced and went to my Jeep this morning to find my cat was sawed off. Happy Thursday!

Ok, since the dual-climate control bulbs are solder in, can you take a picture of the back of your gauge cluster to show me which bulbs you replaced to make it glow blue. All I could find were individual bulbs for like the turn signals, fog lights, ABS light, etc. I DID replace my bright light bulb, so now it glows an even brighter blue.
Thanks!

I came out from class this morning went to start the Jeep and click dead battery so I had to call someone to come jump me off. I had jumper cables but there wasn't anyone around to jump me. On top of everything it made me late to work.
