So im guessing it can't be operated on?

YSB, I pPlan to use one of the ones from the jeep to convert a dirt bike headlight. Probably just keep the 2nd as a spare setup honestly. Let me check around though, there's a small chance i might have another pair here at work that we have no use for. Gotta love free samples from asian vendors! LOL

On a second note I used to always get flashed in my CooperS with HID's. I would just flash them back so they would know what brights really looked like!!

Yeah, I've tried this. The pattern of the housing just blasts the light pretty much all over the road! Funny part is I actually get high beamed less with my high beams on rather then my lows. Reason being my high beam seems to make less scattered light pattern.

May be easier than re-wiring if you used anything other than quick disconnect pins
Crap, that might just work actually!!! I'll have to peak under there and see if I've got room and then see if I can physically get my drill with a hole saw on one side or the other of that slot... Hmmm.... You may have saved me some PITA work! LOL I hate wiring!!! So much so that I'm going to build an entire race truck yet we're gonna pay someone to wire the whole thing up. Speaking of that.... If anyone is into automotive wiring and does a good job or knows someone that does I'll be looking for some work to be done in a few months. Dash full of autometer gauges, race radio, intercomm, siren/horn, GPS, and possibly some other things.

Either that, or you can just be lazy and get a thing of heat shrink and crimp splices? Unless you're running crazy accessories that ought to be fine.

I'm sorry but Schwarzenegger's kindergarten cop movie just popped in my head...
"my head hurts"
"maybe it's a tumor"

I have one large amp power wire running back. The rest are small wires... I'm gonna go out and look into it as soon as my laziness goes away here in a few minutes or an hour! LOL



Shameless plug but if anyone is into offroad racing and wants to follow the build up of the truck I'll be building here's our team facebook page. Make sure to read the description under the info tab, click the "see more" to read the whole gig. I'm not making a dime off this. I'm doing the labor cause I want to race and this is my chance. Basically I'm getting wheel time in exchange for fab/prep of the truck. Should be pretty darn fun when all said and done! We're not pursuing sponsorship yet but we will be probably this spring once we're a little closer to done with the truck and have more then a pile of parts to show for it. LOL We figure having as many "likes" as we can is one of MANY avenues we're going to chase to show potential sponsors what means we have of spreading the word... So if you're into the high speed stuff even just as a spectator check out our team and hit the like button!

No rain yet!

You know what's throwing me off about your sarcasm? It's the name. Who the heck likes polka? I still think that has to be a joke! No wonder there is so much beer at Octoberfests. You have to be drunk to listen to that.

That would be super duper awesome if you have some lying around, but I would pay for them if you did.

Way back in the good ol' days, I was a medical student. The pharmaceutical reps would give away so much free stuff. Mostly office stuff and little trinket toys, but I don't know anyone that worked there that didn't raid the medication room. The narcotics were locked up, but things like Viagra were free for the taking. That stuff really worked. Boing!

Okay, shifter lines pulled out and wires are relocated. Looked at the drill and slot method and choose the hard way for a couple reasons. 1st I would've had to have put the hole about 1.5" away and then slot that distance to slide the wires over. My concern was the BIG OE harness that ran right thru there too and getting a cut off wheel or even my dremel in there to cut without knicking a wire. 2nd reason, I noticed that area of the firewall is double plated for strength I'm guessing considering you got the brake booster inches away and now a master cylinder plunger mounted too. I figured why take the chance to have that firewall flexing just to take the lazy way out on the wiring. Turns out really I only had to cut 2 wires, the rest I was able to unplug, pull thru and refish back thru a new hole. A quick run to ace hardware for a rubber grommet and I was set, done and over...



ysb, on the lights, I checked as I was leaving and I've got a complete extra pair of them there. I just gotta wait till the owner is back in town later this month to make sure he's cool if I grab them. Nobody would notice them gone to be honest considering they're stuffed in the back of my desk drawer but at the same time it's not worth taking them when I'm betting he'll say to just take them. We got them as samples when we were thinking about doing a full turn key plug and play HID upgrade for the classic mustangs. We didn't do it though cause we couldn't find a compatible lamp that didn't scatter the light just like is happening to my jeep. We had 3 kits total. One kit ended up in my jeep, one is in a mustang still at work that probably should be pulled back out someday and the 3rd was in my junk desk drawer. Funny the stuff I have in the "junk" drawer... You know, just a set of HID's... LOL Pretty sure there's no viagra!!! I've thought about buying some in Mexico though to drop in friends drinks at the bar. I thought that would be a pretty good joke to pour in some crushed up blue pill. Maybe my sense of humor is a bit wrong... Whatever!!! LOL

Alright, break time is over... Back out to the garage... Gonna see if I can get the brake pedal off the firewall next and now that I think about it I might still have one more line under there to pull out that I forgot about. Gonna do the cooler lines tomorrow cause I forgot to bring home a set of plugs for the cooler in the radiator and I don't want that to just sit and drain... I'll eventually probably swap out the radiator for a standard one with a non-cooler. If I do, I'll make someone a SMOKIN deal on a pretty *****in aluminum race type radiator with trans cooler that's 100% bolt in on a TJ and if you want to drill 1 hole and make a small bracket it'll pretty much bolt right into a YJ also. 6 cylinder on both, won't work with the 4 cylinder... I gotta get the other radiator before hand though. $100 say... first to claim it has first dibs on it.
