Rainy days are stupid drivers' punishment materialized for everyone else's enjoyment!


The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I like racing people when it's raining. Keep it in 4-hi on takeoff and take it out going into third gear. Theyre slip sliding everywhere and your gone! (I know irresponsible-ness) fun anyway!

Ok, I've checked the reviews on JF. Can anyone recommend a good HID headlight replacement for TJ? I've seen prices all over the map. Anything with a halo also? (I know they're ghey, but I think they look cool(guess I'm ghey too)) I seem to remember someone talking about them(HID), but not sure who.

I can tell you first hand which ones suck...

Delta quadbar headlights with HID's in them and the Hella Vision Plus headlights with HID's in them. Both the delta and the Hella's are better with the bulbs that come in them then they are with the HID bulbs in them. Now when I say that... What I mean is actually from the driver's perspective they both kickass with the HID's!!!! You'll absolutely love them!!! Problem is, I'm pretty sure you haven't moved to BFE and I'm pretty sure your jeep is still driven around town. The issue is 3/4's of the other cars on the road will be flashing their high beams at you and I promise the ones that aren't are cussing you under their breath. Doesn't matter how low you aim them either. I've got them pointed as far down as physically possible yet I can't barely get out of my neighborhood without being high beamed a few times. If you DGAF about every other person on the road they're great, but getting flashed by virtually everyone sucks and gets annoying fast.

I've got a set of european Hella replacement headlights that are way better then stock in my opinion. They're brand new in the boxes still. They are not DOT approved though as they are directly from europe. If you don't care I'd let you have them for $75. You can even try them out and pay me after if you want to keep them, they take about 10 minutes to swap out. I also "might" have a set of HID's to fit in them also if you really just had to try them and don't believe me... I'll probably know within a week or so if those HID's are available. They might already be spoken for by your arch enemy and nemesis!


On a side note, saw this picture of the circle K a block off Boulder Highway on Tropicana yesterday. This is the one I go to when I want mango iced tea! LOL, I don't remember it looking like this Sunday when I was there though!





Between work and a date last night I got the first shock tacked in place on the front end and cycled it. I'm pretty happy with how everything is working on that. Should end up with about 16.5" of travel out of the front end which is more then some championships have been won with. Still have a LONG ways to go and what I did last night is actually just temporary to help locate the shocks, I still have to build the real shock mounts next. Got a couple more nights of shock placement to go probably and then I'll be able to get the real mounts fabbed up and in and then the front end will be looking pretty legit again finally!

So my Jeep is now working. Here are the symptoms.

- Left for work, started first crank as always.
- Stopped for gas and now it won't start
- Jeep has power
- Starter is not getting power, not even a click. The starte relay does not seem to click as well
- Tried swapping the starter relay, no luck
- Tried swapping starter fuse, no luck
- Tried a jump start, no luck

I have no idea whats going on, any ideas? I'm thinking maybe NSS. I did have to cross a psudo-river yesterday

'99 XJ Sport
It has a lift
It has 31's

I've talked about them in the past. Saying stuff like "I'll hate you forever if you do it." "They blind other drivers around you." "Why would you want to create a more hazardous driving condition?" Oh, and if you still decide to put them in, I'll hate you forever.

It sounds like you are heading in the right direction. If you have a meter, check for power at the starter relay when the key is turned. You should have 12vdc. I would also start looking towards the neutral safety switch. It might be jacked up with it in park, try putting the trans in neutral and starting it. Get a good wiring diagram for your ride and trace out the starter circuit.

Don't have a meter. Tried switching to neutral, no luck, but if its filled with water that might prevent contact wether its in P or N.

From doing a quick search... granted I did not see an actual diagram but it said that the G (Ground) terminal on the starter relay gets its signal from the NSS(Neutral Safety Switch) So if you jump terminal G to ground it will bypass the NSS.


If you do not have a meter you can always trying wiring up a 12vdc light bulb as a test light for a circuit. It is crude but it will help. Also are you broken down on the side of the road right now? If so where are you?
