I paid $822 plus shipping transfer to a 4wheelparts store by my house. Email Kolak. After I bought it he and I discovered he could have saved me more. Kolak@aol.com

Went up to the car dealer ship to see what was going on with my jeep " was dropped off 2 weeks ago because of flood damage" they told me they ordered a new motor and that they would call me when it got there because it was on it's way

I have the V8, but is it clamped as well? I tried removing the clamp and slipping the pipe out which didnt work. Ended up cutting it and welding exhaust flanges on. Definitely works amazing

I have painted the stops with Presto Transparent Glossy Stop Paint. So at daylight red parking lights seem so weak with the factory bulbs. But no problem on brake. And also no problem at night.

So i ordered red led stop lights 120 leds on them. But still same weak at daylight.

1) Can i strenghten the power gets to the stops?

2) There are 2 metal circuits on sockets for brakes to increase the power of light. But on flash lights only one circuit. Can i strenghten the flash lights?

You can run a relay if you think you are not getting the proper power, but thats what happens when you tint lights like that. Its essentially sun glasses for your brake lights... Never have seen the point.

LOL!! That poor damper has laster 3 years for me, and god knows how long for the previous owner. I snapped the stud when trying to get the nut off. My impact wouldn't budge it, so I had to use a power bar with a pipe on it to get it to break!

Time to hitup Rockauto and order a new one, along with two new upper ball joints for it.

Thanks for answer. But what do you mean by running a relay? Sorry for my English.
