No more binding and a solid WORKING 4x4 system!

I literally think I am going to throw my 247 in the trash!

Good job. Make sure you pull he yoke on the 247 before you toss it if you do. Someone will want it.

i don't have a write up for either, but they don't really require one. Pretty straight forward, i can upload some pics of how i did it though. I used gutter guard, cut out pieces that fit over the back opening, with a .5" over hang, cut slits all around the outside and bend the edges down as tight as you can using a flathead screw driver or something.

I used a string as a guide wire to keep the mesh lined up as well as made sure it was all facing the same way. Then just hot glued it all down, don't over do it though, cause the grill supports will go in the cavities between the slats. I think mine turned out good! Its very solid to, they won't come off easily.

I too bought these, installed them and they are worthless - they are great as a DRL as they cast a more eye-catching light, buyt they add nothing to projection or illumination as viewed from Drivers seat.

Played electrical guy in the driver side door wire harness... Not only was the black wire broken, so was the orange one! Fixed it for now with a water tight/heat shrink connection until I have time to run an entire new run of both wires... I can now open my door fully and the switches work still as well as no more flickering interior lights while driving...

Built a DIY ski rack using some scrap wood and about $20 worth of stuff from the hardware store. Then I drove through an ice storm to get to Mt Tremblant for the weekend.

Had to find a parking place to go take an exam. Best part, watching the securing guard repeatedly try to put the ticket on the windshield and keep falling down.

Probably because he's a parking lot security guard. What better does he have to do?

Pays hundreds of dollars for a light bar, won't pay $80 for a real ski rack.
