It will work until I get a good bumper on there. I don't like where I had to put those lights either, but by god they're on and working.

Since I hadn't heard from the tire shop, I called. The other guy at the tire shop thought I was supposed to call him, rather than he call me. I'm still unimpressed thus far. I'll reserve total judgement until this ordeal is complete, but it's not looking good.

So the guy said he wouldn't have time to look at it until Tuesday next week. Meantime my Jeep sits undriven with some junk rollers on it. I told him I could just bring the tires down there so he can look at them sooner. He said that would be ideal, so I'll be doing that shortly.
