Well I would have to use the Matrix because it is in the way of me reaching the skid, but in the rear the hook of the Hi-Lift will fit in the slots.

I didn't think the skids would support that much weight but I guess they would have to. lol

Well I used it on the pinch weld, and should be able to lift from the rear hitch. I'm ordering rock rails next week but haven't decided on 4xg or the RRO ones. Anyone have any different brand rock rails?

I started moving my lights last night. Finished up this morning. But now they arent working. The relay is clicking. The in line fuse is good..the stock fogs that they are tied into still work..So im at a loss there. But they look good behind the grill..Ignore the mess of wires. May have to rewire them..

Lights look sick Dan! I love the look of them behind the grille. Yours is the 1st XK I've seen with them back there. As far as why they aren't working... I'm not sure :-/ lol

Installed my Monroe Sensatrac rear shocks last night. Love them and the rear no longer sags. Got and extra inch of lift so it sits level.

I finally installed my switch plate. (I didn't have it before I needed my lights.)

The up/down arrow switch is the replacement for the OE adjustable pedal switch.

Replaced the Multi-Function Switch today. Really started acting up recently. This was a very simple part to replace. One screw on top, one on the bottom, and it slides right out. The $150 at the dealer hurt a little though.

Just 3 screws on the bottom. Then the two pieces are held together with plastic clips. Supposedly squeeze in the middle and it seperates. That worked on one side, on the other I slipped my knife in the slot and gently pushed and it popped right open. It's a 15 minute job. Just disconnect the battery before you go poking around in there. Also, move the seat out of the way before you disco the battery. lol
