Don't do HID headlights without installing projectors. Your stock headlights aren't designed for the light discharge of HIDS, just halogens.

I agree about finding HID kits being relatively inexpensive now, but I have seen too many of them not last long or deal with much vibration or anything & the folks on the hondatech forums were saying that these HIR bulbs were just as bright, and for $60 a pair, I figured it would be well worth it.
I don't know anyone that carries their spare on their tailgate anymore Raptor or I would spread the word for you. Good luck with the sale.
Yeah i got a bumper coming up from CA soon and im gonna mount my swing out tire/jerry can/rack onto it so its time to go

Yep, yet another reason I went with HIR over HID.

Just a quick thanks to Jokerchief and dmgiff.
Jokerchief, the axles are installed and work perfectly. I mixed and matched knuckles, brakes ect. Really like the 4 10's.

Thanks dmgiff for the offer of the housing, but I was unsure of the condition of the internals of my bent front axle.

Great Jeep community here with some really good people.

Three years ago, on September 19, Marn started this thread. I don't know what the stats are but I would venture to guess that this is probably one of the longest if not the longest running thread on here. Therefore, I raise my can (of Dr. Pepper, I am at work after all) to this thread. Happy Belated Birthday.

Made it back from panaca. Totally uneventful drive except for my gas tank springing a leak where it was supposedly repaired (not the hole I made, but on the top). I picked up some putty in caliente and fixed it when I got to panaca. No biggie. Noticed the leak in ash springs after filling up.

Didnt see your post about the springs Khris. I have been out through that slot canyon. The bridge burned down some time ago. When we were up there doing our rural outreach semester for school that was one of the places we explored.

My portion of the project was working with the ranges at cathedral gorge. A busy of mine and I put together a new master plan for the park that incorporated new trails, backcountry camping, and actually tied the park into the silver state trail. Obviously none of it has happened, lol.

Anyway, good trip. Jeep ran well. My gas gauge works now but it reads 1/4 tank low (full = 3/4 on the gauge and the gauge reads empty with like 5 gallons still in the tank). Need to bend the sending unit I guess.

My exhaust rattles against my frame sometimes and is annoying. I need to remove my cat (why somebody put one on there i dont know?) and move the muffler forward about 12" then I can hang the tailpipe where it belongs.

No driveline vibes unless I really get into the throttle while doing like 70-75ish. Must be the driveline torques under heavy load. I can cruise at 70 or 75 just fine.

So, gas tank leak but y gas gauge started working. Ill call it a draw haha.

We made some bomb-*** chili for dinner in the Dutch oven.

Anyway, pitchers:

325 mile road trip probably wasn't the best idea for its first shakedown run, but seems to have gone well!

Perhaps it lived in Komifornia when they had that big kick about all vehicles needing cats? I remember a buddy *****ing about having to put cats on his 1965 Mustang when he moved out there.

Three of those five, I wouldn't be caught dead in. Some vehicles just aren't made with shorter drivers in mind. The new Camaro seems to be one of those. It looks to me like even tall people sit so low in the damn thing that they can barely see.

We have three dogs and no matter how much you do to pick up the poop we had a pretty severe fly problem. Fly strips didn't do anything catching maybe one or two a day. Finally got off my but and made my way to the local feed store and picked up some serious fly traps. In two days both traps have made a serious dent in the local fly population.

That is really good to hear. I have heard from various sources that the flys in Vegas are really bad this year. If the winter weather hasn't killed them by the time I get home, I will be looking for some of those traps as well.
