That was happening to my wj and turned out to be a faulty blinker module, apparently a common problem. I was too cheap to buy a new one so I just popped it open and all it needed was for the joints to be re-soldered where the contact pins go to the circuit board. Was easy and took me 20 minutes total. Blinkers work great now

How much did that set you back? I just installed two new tail lights that I bought off eBay for $79.00 a pair. I now have all my lights working except for the missing 9055 bulb for the fog light and it is suppose to be in on Tuesday.

Hauled a mattress and boxspring on top of it... In the rain. Doing a favor for my brother who doesn't have a car. Guess it was worth it. I didn't get to drive on the streets because of
License complications but I did get to back it up the lawn and over the curb and it really drives so much differently than my xj. The 247 is so weird I'm not used to having a little slip before my 4wd kicks in. The xj is part-time locked. I really want that 242 in the junkyard now. It's from an 01, looks very clean, no rust, about 70k miles on it, and comes with the dash bezel. Guy wants $250 for it. I would get it but I won't be able to work on the wj till November so it'll be laying in my garage and any guarantee/warranty the guy puts on it will be expired by then so I have no real way of testing it.

The 247 isn't bad, but it's definitely a different feeling. It catches pretty fast though. And it does lock in 4lo.

Oh yeah, and yesterday I was at the junkyard looking for a ps pump for my zj and I found in a Nissan xterra a JL audio 4awg amp wiring kit with rcas. The guy there likes me, I got it for $5 and the zj ps steering pump for $10

The wiring kit is going into the wj but I need to decide where to put the amp. I wanna see if it'll fit in the side flip up compartment in the back where factory cd changer usually goes. Oh yeah the jl kit came with a line-level adaptor so I can still use the factory headunit for now (saweeet) because I want to keep the steering wheel buttons and I need to save up some more before I go all out with the PAC converter and such

Also I forget if I mentioned this before but I helped my friend do the kicker upgrade and dynat his wk so as a gift he's giving me the factory Boston acoustics door speakers. I feel like I already said that but w/e it's all good. Boston acoustics going to sound amazing
